  1. F2 should be returned to renaming function

    With the newest update, F2 (used universally for renaming across every other PC/Windows program/functionality) was changed to a help function that brings up an Adobe Internet help site.

    F1 is used universally for help, and no one needs that much access to Adobe help pages.

    F2 should be returned to renaming. Ctrl-F2 is a ridiculous and difficult change for renaming and it's the worst idea ever.

    I remediate hundreds of PDFs for accessibility, and having to make a more complicated keystroke to rename tags is a huge problem.

  3. PLEASE Don't make the user go through a menu to check off a comment! You DOUBLE the time it takes to go through comments.

    PLEASE ELIMINATE the need to go through a dropdown menu just to check off a commnet.

    IT WAS FINE to have a checkbox. It took HALF THE TIME.

  5. Outstanding Product

    It's been over ten years since I sold the tech company I owned for 22 years. I've been enjoying retirement...until about a month ago! A friend recruited me to help convert some hard copy documents, produced in the mid-eighties, and make them into accessible PDF files. She knew I had some background in technology and specifically with creating PDFs from paper. The documents were going to be part of a new web site about the history of ADA! Given the nature of the site, the documents needed to be accessible! I downloaded Acrobat Pro DC (and a couple of screen…

  6. Recycling bin for Adobe Document Cloud

    Please implement a recycling bin for Adobe Document Cloud. I accidentally deleted some PDFs and now I can't retrieve them no more.

  7. Please remove "Please wait while the document is being prepared"

    Please switch off "Please wait while the document is being prepared" displayed each time I open a document. This feature is necessary only for selected users and hampers very much typical program use.

  8. Yes this is not a out down, I believe that this is a great intrument, and while I go back to college it would be a great tool in my hands.

    Going to both College and also desiring to own your own company is a huge task, but having an App that will help out is truly great.

  9. Remove the big blue "Share" button

    You have absolutely no control over the choice of menu design, forced to look at a big blue “share” button, a feedback button and a question mark. When operating in half screen the frequently used menu items I have chosen are hidden, because you think I want to share, learn or send feedback. Give me the ability to remove and take charge of my workspace environment.

  10. [Bug Report] Clicking an option from a dropdown form field results in the wrong one being selected

    For a long time now I have noticed a peculiar bug that only sometimes rears its head. By now I'm pretty sure it is a bug and not something I'm doing wrong, as I've had this same issue appear in multiple AcroForms that I have made, all with different content.

    What happens is illustrated well with the screen recording I made, see the attached file.

    How to reproduce:

    • This is with an AcroForm drop-down field that has about 200 entries.
    • This drop-down field has the options "Allow user to enter custom text" and "Commit selected value immediately" selected.…

  11. Shrinking files

    It's a shame, that Acrobat makes it such a harmfully experience to lower the filesize of a pdf (coming from photoshop Artboard to PDF Export), that actually does nothing!

    Filesize goes from 18 MB to 17,5 MB or something (if it even works without errors you can't debug because you can't do something about it).

    In the end I have to buy and use third party tools like pdf squeezer (for mac).
    One click, and it shrinks the 18 MB to 600 KB! Without lowering the quality!!

    Adobe please work on your UI for Acrobat Pro.
    Or even better: Work…

  12. BUG REPORT: accessibility issue on PDF export from InDesign

    The latest version of InDesign exports PDF's in which most all the tagged content is in an Xobject container, making accessibility remediation MUCH MORE DIFFICULT. This is a huge step backwards. Attached are two examples, from the same client, annual reports- last year's was fine, this year's has all the xobject issues. Please advise, help, fix, something!!!

  13. Can no longer drag pdf files from Acrobat Pro DC directly into email, must instead click "share", WAIT..., etc.

    New Acrobat Pro DC version no longer allows dragging the pdf icon from the top bar in directly into email.

    Instead one must hit "share", WAIT..., then click "Send as attachment" then click "continue" to let it use the native email, then WAIT, then drag the pdf from that newly created email into the intended email.

  14. Acrobat Pro DC Form edit mode selection is BROKEN

    In form edit mode, using the Select Object Tool. When selecting a column of form objects (e.g. check boxes) ALL non form objects are selected, and the tool reverts to the Edit too. This renders it impossible to perform actions on the form objects alone

    In the file, try and select a column of checkboxes to match the behaviour.

    This worked fine before the last update, currently on 2019.021.20047

    I would suggest removing the Edit tool from the Form Edit mode, it is not necessary. It is available in the PDF Edit mode.

    When I want to work on form…

  15. Metadata (document properties) from Microsoft documents

    When I used to create PDFs from Word documents in Windows 7, the PDF would automatically inherit the Title, Subject, and Author properties.

    In Windows 10/Acrobat Pro 17 this is no longer the case. All of these fields are blank.

    I don't know if this is a change in Acrobat or Word (Office 365), but it's a major pain to set these properties manually every time.

  16. Copy PDFs within Document Cloud

    It would be great if from within Adobe Document Cloud we could make copies of PDFs. Currently the workflow that was described to me from tech support was that I would have to download the PDF then upload another copy.

  17. Keyboard shortcut for previous result in Find and Replace dialog

    We can use "Enter" to go to the next result when finding text in a PDF, but there is no keyboard shortcut to go to the previous result. I expected "Shift+Enter" to go the previous result, following the convention of using "Shift+<Key>" to navigate backwards, but instead, "Shift+Enter" just goes to the next result.

  18. The fix in the link https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/send-email-attachment.html doesn't work. PLEASE just fix this in the program!

    None of the fixes or downloads work to enable the single-click email like there was in the older versions. The link in https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/send-email-attachment.html requires too many permissions and my company won't let me download it. PLEASE JUST CHANGE IT BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS!

    Hi,
    Could you please use the following registry file to switch to older email experience:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\DC\FeatureLockDown]
    “bSendMailShareRedirection”=dword:00000000

    I hope this helps, please let me know if you face any issues.

  19. Preflight BUG: under MacOS Mojave 10.14.4 (18E226) in Acrobat Pro version 2019.010.20098

    under MacOS Mojave 10.14.4 (18E226) in Acrobat Pro version 2019.010.20098 when we try to perform run a preflight fix (generate 2 mm bleed), Acrobat can't do it telling there was an error but not showing what error. The same fix applied on the same file using the same version of acrobat works perfectly under MacOS 10.11.6 - We tested it on different machines with the latest version of MacOS and Acrobat.
