  1. Zoom Percentage field/tool is missing from toolbar.

    In Acrobat DC, when viewing in untabbed mode, the part of the toolbar that shows the current zoom level and allows the user to type in the desired zoom percentage is missing. It appears on the floating/vanishing toolbar when page controls are moved out of toolbar, but not on the main toolbar.

    Please add this feature back to the toolbar. Using tabbed viewing is NOT a solution. This should have never been removed in the first place. Let me repeat, having to use tabbed viewing is NOT a solution.

  2. Add option to use file name instead of TITLE in the Adobe Acrobat Reader

    It is difficult to figure out which file is which when viewing multiple files with the same TITLE. The person using the reader is powerless to change the title.

    PLEASE provide a global preference / setting in the Reader,preferences to have the Reader use the file name all the time.

  3. PDFMaker Office COM Addin needs a default properties feature

    The Adobe PDFMaker Office COM Addin sets a newly created document's Initial View properties to Single Page Continuous by default. This is usually inappropriate and requires frequently changing via File > Properties > Initial View > Page Layout > Single Page. This repeatedly wastes significant time. To resolve this, the Addin should enable users to set their preferred Initial View properties for all newly created PDF documents. Please add this feature to the next edition of this Addin. Thanks

  5. Acrobat crashes on Mojave when playing movies

    Acrobat (version 2019.012.20034) crashes constantely when playing interactive PDFs with movies created in Indesign. Computers still on High Sierra with Acrobat 2019.010.20098 do not have this issue.
    On Mojave, as soon as you want to play an embedded movie, Acrobat crashes with this:
    This PDF cannot be viewed in Acrobat or Reader, and the application will
    now exit
    Please help, we have updated most of our computers in the uni and students can't view interactive PDFs anymore.

  7. Additional commenting tools for Document Cloud shared reviews

    Why are there limited commenting tools for PDF shared reviews uploaded to Document Cloud? This would be a perfect option for our organization if all the commenting tools were available (i.e., "stamp" tool, "attach file" tool).

  8. Straighten

    A button to straighten a scanned document would be so useful, particularly for anyone using a document feeder to scan. Currently, if you go to edit the document, it will straighten the pages for you, but it will sometimes convert handwritten notes into a font and change their appearance, which isn't ideal for signatures, for example. So, a separate option to straighten the document would be life changing for me at work.

    Hi,

    If your Previous session had any PDF’s launched when it was last Closed, then there is a Menu item Under File→ Reopen PDFs from Last Session which will open the pdfs that were launched in your previous session before closing.

    Attaching a snapshot to help you with.

    Also there is a Preference unde Edit→Preferences→General which ould automatically open the PDFs from the last sesssion as you Open the Acrobat / Reader application. Here is more info on that : https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/whats-new.html#PreferencetoreopenPDFsfromthelastAcrobatsession

    Hope this resolves your concern ?

  10. New update has glitches with split screen

    After latest update, when creating a PDF, the program switches screens. I have split screens for a reason. I want Adobe to STAY on the screen I have it on. Very annoying. This did not happen before the update.

  12. Accessibility Problems with Images/Figures

    I have a Microsoft Word file that has a number of images. I need to make an accessible PDF. I have entered alternate text for each image in MS Word. When I convert the Word file to PDF, the alternate text I had entered in MS Word is carried over to the PDF, which is what I want. The problem is that it puts all images/figures at the beginning of the tag tree no matter where the image comes in the document. When I look at the Reading Order for each page, it puts all images as the last item…

    Ability to open PDFs in Organizer MOde by default (or to switch back and forth). Or alternatively the ability to switch to organizer mode for multiple PDFs that are open at the same time. Right now, you would have to click on each PDF individually and then click on Organizer

  15. Distiller Output and Input folders name changed

    In the latest Update for Acrobat, 19.012.20036, Distiller broke all our Workflows! Distiller renamed the Input and Output folders on our German MacOS Installation from "In" and "Out" to "Nach innen" and "Nach außen". It seems to get somehow translated automatically, since "In" and "Out" correspond to the translations the folders now have. The Problem ist, we are working with scripts to check those folders, and those are now not working anymore! This needs to be fixed ASAP! Also, the "ß" in the "Nach außen" is a big problem when working with network shares, as this is a special character…

  16. Acrobat extension 15.1.1.3 incompatible with chrome 78.0.3904.70

    Acrobat extension 15.1.1.3 under Windows 10 is incompatible with chrome 78.0.3904.70. It causes the browser to be unable to work at all. It's not possible to fix any other way other than to downgrade Chrome. Even removing Acrobat has not effect. Somehow, the incompatible Acrobat extension leaves behind something that won't allow Chrome to work. Downgrading to earlier version of Chrome fixes this.

  18. 3D model friendly capabilities

    We need 3D capabilities in PDF form, so we can create brochures, e-books with 3D models that potential clients can observe the products in 3D.
    Having the capability of checking the products in more dimensions would help people acquiring either model is being marketed

  19. Feature Request

    Please create layout options for bulk uploading images into fixed width and height boxes for multiple images.

    We take a lot of pictures while working in the field we need to send them all at once and the file size is crazy big.

    we dont need the full size image just a thumbnail or medium with a corporate layout we do this multiple times a day. and creating the template everytime blows....
