  1. Superscript styling not retained when using Comment to mark-up a PDF

    I have recently upgraded to Adobe Acrobat Pro DC. For my work, I need to mark-up PDFs using Comment tools. When I style some text as superscript using either the feature available in the box that appears when I right click or the shortcut ctrl/shift/+ and then close the pop-up box the styling becomes subscript instead of superscript. I used Adobe Acrobat Professional 8 for a long time and didn't have any problems. It is very frustrating that this doesn't work properly in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, especially as 'superscript' is offered as a feature in Comments

  2. Use printer default setting for double-sided printing

    Currently Adobe Acrobat DC does not recognise if the default printer setting on my mac has been set to duplex. There is a work around. By pressing the printer button and selecting 'duplex' from the print dialogue box that is revealed, pdfs can be printed double sided (DC warns against doing this by the way). The trouble is that it is easy to forget to follow this process, particularly when I am in a hurry, with the result that pdfs, in my case often 20 or 30 pages documents, are printed single sided. This wastes paper, is environmentally unfriendly and…

  3. Text formatting when copying between text boxes

    Please make an option to keep text formatting, like line feeds, when copying text between two text boxes in same PDF file. At the moment Acrobat DC removes all line feeds when content is copy&pasted which creates a lot of unnecessary "Enter" typing.
    Maybe something like CTRL+SHIFT+V = keep formatting?

    Copying the whole text box is not an options, because the text box is sometimes rotated when pasted to another page.

    Alternative to this request would of course be to make the text box rotatable.

  4. right-click

    It would be really nice if the "Underline" tool was included in the right-click menu. Right now the Mac version has an option for highlighting and striking through, but not for underlining.

  6. Drawing polygon always ended a triangle

    This is no an idea. It is a utter disappointment that I paid for perpetual license for Acrobat Pro DC 2015 and I am getting nowhere to be able to draw multi-sided polygons. Always automatically ended a triangle after the third click. Same happens when drawing clouds. Cannot draw multiple segments of connected lines in the same line, always terminated after the second segment.

  7. Thumbnail display

    It is very nice to have implemented the thumbnail view of Acrobat documents in the Windows explorer.

    There are nevertheless three bugs:
    - Their display is very (too) slow: why not incorporating directly this thumbnail (as the corresponding option in MS Word) in the file itself?
    - The thumbnails are square, which means that they display blank artificial borders (vertical or horizontal, depending of the orientation of the first page)
    - Very often, these thumbnails are black, thus unusable (see attached screenshot).

    Thank you to correct these bugs in a future update.

  9. White Box error in printed 3D views

    We are noticing an error in prints of 3D space from Adobe DC in either Windows 7 or Windows 10. When you print views, sometimes there’s a “White Box” in the middle of the view no matter which medium you print through/to (i.e. physical printer, Adobe PDF, Word Doc, OneNote, etc.).

    I attached an example PDF where this behavior can be seen. The original model is included as an attachment in the PDF. The information attached does not have any restrictions. The information in the PDF is correct until you print it.

    Reproduction Steps:
    1. Export a PDF from ACW…

  11. Fill and sign loses data

    I fill data in a PDF form and save the changes. When I return to the document at a later stage, and make a single change, I lose all the previous data entered, only retaining the last change. It is annoying to lose all your typed data.

    Luckily I save it in Dropbox, so can get back to original revisions.

  12. Incorrect PDF generated by distiller

    When distilling attached Postscript the generated PDF shows error when opening. I have narrowed it down to an image which has imagemask set to true as well as mask array in it. This is incorrect as per specification.

    I am using Adobe Acrobat 10.0.0.

  13. Bug: Redaction incorrectly hides text outside of redacted area

    Redaction hides (but does not remove) text outside of the redacted area in certain cases when:


    • A clipping path is set around the content, leaving the outside clipped away

    • The clipping path uses the even-odd rule

    • The clipping path is set while a non-identity transformation matrix is active

    • Before the visible objects are defined the CTM is restored to the identity matrix by concatenating the inverse CTM (rather than restoring the graphics state)

    Steps to reproduce:
    * Open one of the attached files in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC
    * Use the redaction tool to remove the word "Hello"

    Expected result: …

  14. Taskbar icon for Acrobat and Reader are exactly the same

    How about having a different taskbar icon for Reader and Acrobat! There are some users that use both and it would be nice to be able to distinguish which program is which by looking at the icon! Like we USED to!

  15. BUG: DC PRO crash while highlighting and comments on scanned hand written notes document

    Brand new Win 10 Surface Book with everything updated including Acrobat. When highlighting and adding comments to a scanned handwritten document, DC PRO crashed and hours of work were lost as the file I was working on was not in the temporary saved files. In troubleshooting, I found that auto-save to temporary files was not turned on in preferences. I am used to working with MS Word which automatically saves every document you have opened and changed and I assumed Adobe would do likewise. I have not had a crash like this on DC PRO like many others have reported…

  17. Add the Ability for Adobe PDF printer to print via Autodesk's Revit. The only alternatives are prohibitively expensive.

    Can you please fix the bugs in the PDF printer plugin that works with Autodesk's Revit. The program is very inconsistent and sometime just stall entirely. This would be very helpful to many users of Revit.

  18. Custom Comment Status Tags

    It would be nice if users can create and manage custom status tags. Often when I'm addressing comments I use the status tags for organizing which comments I've addressed and how I address them. I turn them on and off to keep track of which one's I've addressed. For the most part they are usually accepted or rejected, but sometimes there are some that should be addressed by someone else, some that require further clarification, some that I simply want to put on the back-burner but don't want to see when I filter out comments that have not been addressed,…

  20. Redaction - similar to overlay text, have an "overlay image" option

    The redaction properties allow you to specify custom "overlay text" on redaction marks.
    This request is to add a feature for "overlay image" to have an image included on the redaction marks.
    Thanks
