    simple- allow the toolbar to be saved after it is customized so that it will always appear when new documents are opened.

  4. Overly invasive

    Acrobat DC came pre-installed on my new computer at Christmas. I don't need to use it very often. However, when I do, my firewall software goes ballistic with requests from Acrobat for access to programs and resources I consider it has absolutely no business with. I am constantly denying requests. I have recently downloaded and I'm currently testing another PDF reader. Acrobat has become intolerable. Thanks, but no thanks. Sean

  5. Easy edit of toolbar

    I can't see/figure out how to add the "sign pdf" icon into the main toolbar. Frustrating to click 3-4 times to just get that "tool" to show up.

  6. Bug: missing font styles in Acrobat DC for Mac

    When editing a PDF, I can't select some font styles (e.g. "Futura Condensed" is not available in dropdown).
    There was no problem with Acrobat XI.

  7. Why Do I Have to Buy Adobe Acrobat Pro DC?

    I am running Windows 10 and the Adobe Acrobat Pro DC was installed on my machine as an Update by Microsoft. I uninstalled it in error. Regardless, why would I have to buy Pro after the 7 day trial, when it was installed Free by Microsoft as part of Windows 10 update?

  8. Background colour in file disappears in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

    Customer sent in a business card as a pdf file. I open the file in Adobe Acrobat 10 is shows the complete card with colored background. I open the same file in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC and the coloured background is no longer there and will not print as part of the card. If i open the said file in Illustrator and resave it as a pdf, it appears on Acrobat DC. This situation has occurred 3 or 4 times since getting DC approx. 1 month ago. Not very confident in Adobe DC printing what is in file.

  9. Remove extra spacing and lock icon from annotations (Comments) pane

    In Adobe Acrobat DC Comments, the Lock icon adds unnecessary space to the already inefficient spacing (even without the lock, for some reason a lot of extra spacing was added). Is there a way to compress the spacing and/or remove the lock icon, which was never shown in previous versions of Acrobat? If not, the result of our company switching to acrobat DC is a reduction in productivity.

  10. Collaborate Feature not available in Document Cloud Files

    Collaborate Feature not available in Document Cloud Files, it is available in Creative Cloud files. Please include this option

    Also there are no Shared PDF option, where in we can store a PDF on cloud and have a team to work on it. Just like in Foxit Or Sharepoint

    Thanks for reaching out to us. For supporting collaborative viewing of PDF, Acrobat has come up with Send for Review option via the share button where the PDF is stored on the cloud and the team can add comments which will be visible to other users also with whom the file is shared.

  11. Page/Bookmark Panes

    Option to keep page and bookmark navigation panes open. I use them everyday. Every single time I open/create a new pdf, I have to open panes. Haven't found a way to keep them open if it exists.

  13. Add a '100% zoom' button on the main taskbar

    Pretty self-explanatory. I work with a huge amount of documents and find myself selecting the 100% zoom a lot, which makes it easy to read the document. A quick button to allow this view would make life much easier.

  16. "Edit any PDF"

    Please stop sending out emails that say it is quick and easy to edit a PDF without qualifying what is possible and what the consequences are. I have several clients who now think it is possible to edit PDFs, but the reality is that it is NOT possible to do so professionally.

    The end result of clients editing PDFs is that version control is lost from the original files that generated the PDF, artwork needs to be recreated to match the edited PDF and because there appears to be no way of tracking what the client has changed, the clients…

  17. Export to PDF with no Dialogue Box from Automated Process

    I need a way to create a PDF using an automated process that does not cause a popup window to appear. If there were a way to set the file location and file name without the dialogue box it would be very valuable to us.

    There is an application called Bullzip that provides this functionality and charges a great deal of money to provide it.

    I am attempting to use an application called Bartender to produce label images that I want saved to a file location as a pdf. The only way that I have seen it done is with…

  18. Enable a way to have a drop down menu blank (no items selected) until clicked

    Please enable a way to have the drop down menus on PDF forms blank until clicked on. If the item list has three or less items, you can click the blank space (Under dropdown properties > options > item list) but if there are four or more list items, one of them is always selected and shows on the drop down list (not blank.)
