  1. Custom Toolbars

    It seems ironic that Acrobat Pro DC allows for the creation of custom toolbars, which it states can be shared with other users, when in fact there is no means currently available to share any such user enhancement. It also seems unusual that any user created toolbar is not saved to a file which the user can access so as to allow that toolbar to be instantly recreated by him/her on another machine to which s/he has access. Finally, it is also frustrating that any user-created toolbar is placed on the bottom of the list of available toolbars in the…

  3. Read out loud

    Because of my dyslexia, I would benefit from Adobe reading the text aloud as I scan the words. But it never works! How can I get the “Read Aloud” function to work?

  4. Option for name other than login

    It would be nice if I could enter a name to use under Identity and could indicate to use this name regardless of how I am signed into acrobat. This way, comments added using my business or personal copy of Acrobat could show the exact same name. Thank you.

  5. Daily vanishing of Adobe applications Manager

    I have fully paid Acrobat Pro DC for Windows PC. Inspite of this Adobe treats me as illegal user, makes me download AAM (around 86 MB). Then tells me that my copy of Acrobat is valid for 00 days. Mkaes me re-register the copy everyday. They have most incompetent customer care, which make you go in loop for hours without any solutions.

    Do you get any sadistic pleasure in making your customers keep downloading acrobat everyday?

    Are there any human beings I can talk to? or all only looped computers?

  6. Save tool bar display settings when reopening documents

    I want the comment tools to remain as a toolbar. At present it goes away every time I close a document, and I have to bring it back every time I open a new document.

  7. tool bar customization

    Provide option to disable the page controls that are at bottom of page on auto-hide. It blocks document content and is distracting.

  8. Can't select all instances of an Advanced Search (ctrl+shift+F).

    When doing an advanced search (ctrl+shift+F), you used to be able to search for a string (which it still does) and select all of those instances in the PDF (no longer highlights every instance; need to do one-by-one). This was a quick & useful feature for highlighting all instances of a certain text string in a PDF drawing.

  10. Completely kill Acrobat DC - what a piece of junk.

    Acrobat DC makes you hunt through a menu and multiple clicks just to pull up each tool. And this is for each single PDF that is opened into the interface. Honestly this is just so bad. I want Acrobat to look exactly the same each time, with all my commenting and other tools lined up in menus on the right side. Every time, when I open any document, so that I can work.

  11. Preference option to minimize RH Tools pane on file open in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

    In a preferences option such that the Tools pane (on right hand sight of document window) will or will not display on PDF file open.

    his will save time for what I anticipate is a large percentage of users that open PDF documents to read / comment without necessarily using the tools pane on RH side of the window.

  14. Colors wiped out in most recent release.

    I am in Acrobat DC
    Architecture: x86_64
    Build: 17.9.20044.222436
    AGM: 4.30.69
    CoolType: 5.14.5
    JP2K: 1.2.2.38123

    I am looking at a file from a vendor for approval. My manager sees a 16% cyan in the background of this file on two pages. She is in Acrobat Pro X.
    I do not see this 16% cyan. It does not register in the Output Preview panel that there is any cyan on these pages. 0%. We are looking at the exact same PDF file.

    What is going on?

  17. Error 1328

    Over and over waste time downloading and trying to install patch to file C:\config.msi\PT56F8.tmp. It has probably been updated by other means, and can no, longer be modified by this patch. This error comes from Adobe Updater, and has occurred repeatedly over the past several months. Nuisance time waster, and BIG interruption of task in progress. Would appreciate correcting sloppy programming.

  19. Expandable (and/or pop-out) "FIELDS" Pane When Editing a Form

    (See attachment)
    It would be great to be able to grab and pull the left edge of the FIELDS pane over to the left to widen it. Some of the text field names can be very long and can look identical to others unless you can see the whole title. (I know you can hover over the title to see the full text but that only seems to work intermittently, and is time-consuming).
    Also, when scrolling up and down or when trying to grab and move titles to rearrange the tab order, it's easy to get confused and lose your…

  20. Show/Hide Toolbars at the top of the screen

    Could you please re-add in the option to select which toolbars you wish to see on the menu bar area of the program? I am sick of having to click out of my document, look for the right option, and then search for what I want to do. I used to have my regularly used toolbars selected at the top of the screen, so I didn't have to go searching for them. This creates a lot of wasted clicks, time and effort on the part of the user. This is by far the worst version of Acrobat I've ever used,…
