  1. Why did Acrobat change the UI to this simplistic, childish design? Terrible, slower to use.

    Acrobat Pro used to be seamless, easy to use and efficiently laid out. Now it looks like some child's puzzle game where you have to access numerous screens to accomplish what you used to be able to do from ONE PLACE.
    Maddening, dumb redesign that apparently was done for what? Tablet use? Why ruin something many of us use in professional settings so students and casual users can play around with their school prom flyer on mom's ipad?
    It is ugly and not at all intuitive. Clearly the project team didn't have anyone with institutional knowledge involved.

  2. Add proper LongPath support

    Adobe fails to open files when a file path & name exceed MAX_PATH. Windows no longer has a hard path character limit if the LongPathsEnabled key is set in the registry. See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/desktop/fileio/naming-a-file#maximum-path-length-limitation

    Modern applications are adopting this new standard with the mentioned file management hooks provided by the OS.

    Adobe is falling behind in this regard. Please add proper Long Path support.

  4. Set a default order for when combining files

    Rather than re-ordering and re-arranging pdfs within a combined file, I would like to be able to determine the order files are compiled. This can be by file title (alphabetically) or others. Right now when I combine several files into one pdf, they are scrambled out of order and I have to rearrange manually which can be cumbersome for larger compilations.

  5. GET RID OF 'WHO NEEDS TO SIGN FIRST' SCREEN

    I am not sure why there is now a screen after I press the fill & sign button that asks who needs to fill and sign first, but it is just 1 more step, one more click I have to make before signing each document I open - very inconvenient. This extra step also seems to slow down the time it takes adobe to open and prepare my document for any sort of editing.

    Hi All,

    Fill and Sign and Adobe Sign (formerly known as Send for Signature) are now consolidated into a single Sign tool where you can either fill & sign a document or get a document signed from others. It includes a simplified experience that asks you who needs to fill and sign first: you or others and then walks you through the steps to complete the task. It’s the one place for all your form filling and signature needs. For detailed information, you may refer to the article What’s new in Adobe Acrobat DC

    This is designed behavior, I will check with the team and will share an update soon.

    Thanks for your time and patience on this.

    Regards,
    Sandeep Grover

  6. Bug - PDF Tag Panel does not match Reading Order Tool by marking all Tags as Span

    This issue of InDesign and Acrobat incompatibility in regards to Acrobat displaying all spans even when the Reading Order is correct has been around for over two years. We deserve to know what Adobe is doing about it.

    Acrobat Team acknowledges the problem and blames InDesign:

    "It's actually not an Acrobat issue, it's an issue with InDesign and how it's generating the Content that Acrobat is displaying correctly"

    https://forums.adobe.com/message/10005333#10005333

    InDesign Team acknowledges the problem and blames Acrobat:

    "You'd have to talk to the Acrobat team about why they display in the Tags panel the way they do." - Adobe

  7. Tool to Delete Multiple Files from 'Shared for Viewing'

    It would be extremely useful to be able to highlight and delete multiple uploads from the 'Shared for Viewing' page. It's very time consuming having to delete individual files to create space for new uploads.

    Please look into this.

    Thank you.

  8. The Zoom In (+) and Zoom Out (-) buttons missing from tool bar.

    The Zoom In (+) and Zoom Out (-) buttons, and the zoom percentage text box disappeared from my toolbar, and I can't get them back. These controls are only accessible through the menus or the undocked floating panel. Re-docking the panel doesn't bring these controls with it. Right-click "Show Select & Zoom Tools" doesn't even list them.

  9. Add ability to select/define a view when adding a SharePoint Library storage account

    When adding a SharePoint library as a storage account it would be beneficial to to be able to define which view to use (using the view URL) or be prompted to select a view.

    In some cases, libraries do exceed over 5000 items and files within the library can no longer be viewed in the storage account menu within Adobe.

    On the SharePoint side, large libraries that heavily leverage metadata have indexes configured in order to surpass this 5000 item limit per view. It appears that the storage account setup is query for all items, rather than linking to a…

  10. make Acrobat Pro compatible with IBM Notes version 10

    Adobe Acrobat has been compatible with the major business application like MS Outlook or Lotus/IBM Notes since a long time.

    With the version 10 of IBM Notes (that was October 2018) Adobe Acrobat 2017 is no longer compatible with this email suite.

    The PDFMaker Addin did a great job in creating PDFs from Mail.
    Unlike just "printing to PDF" the right border has not been cut when the text was too long and the PDFMaker did include all attachments from the mail into the final PDF.

    So the Adobe Acrobat was a perfect companion for documenting approvals and other buisiness…

  11. 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.

  12. Bug: Gibberish when using ' or & in subject when sending for signature

    When a ' or & is in the subject field when sending a document for signature, those characters come through as gibberish on the other end. This only happens when sending from the Acrobat pro dc desktop client.

  13. 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

  15. Microsoft sharepoint PDF doc API error points to Adobe contact

    hello. for PDF files that were uploaded into Microsoft Sharepoint, when there is an API call error, it tells the user to contact Adobe support. However... Adobe support says this is a Microsoft error and contact should be Microsoft.

    Probably need to have Microsoft fix this on their side. And also have Microsoft not have contact be Adobe (though... from what I can tell it's an Adobe Document Cloud error page)

    referencing session 562211ba-2a30-44ce-9c4b-3024d9439d41.
    referencing session 04eb7357-cf8f-4756-9ab4-400bda37695e.
    referencing session cb1f1cf1-e152-48fd-9deb-0d709fb2cd01.

    Also... the Adobe support told me to contact microsoft support and also to list the error on this page. I'm…

  16. File default zoom option when creating pdf from Word file

    When creating a pdf from a Word file, it would be useful to be able to set the default zoom of the file.
    From posts on other platforms, it appears that some get random default zooms on their files.

  19. Please make RESTORING deleted Document Cloud data possible

    We would like to have the possibility, just like with OneDrive 4 Business, to restore deleted files for a User or by a User if deleted in the Document Cloud.

    At this moment, as soon as the file is deleted in the document cloud there is no turning back.

    It would be great if there would be such a feature enabled like lets say save deleted data for 30 days in a trashcan were users can restore it if deleted by accident.

    Thanks.

  20. Acrobat Pro

    I wish the application can convert outlook email with attachments into a single pdf with attachments immediately following the email. It will be ideal if a whole folder of emails can be converted with same format of file names that can be chosen by the user
