  1. PLEASE Don't make the user go through a menu to check off a comment! You DOUBLE the time it takes to go through comments.

    PLEASE ELIMINATE the need to go through a dropdown menu just to check off a commnet.

    IT WAS FINE to have a checkbox. It took HALF THE TIME.

  2. Remove the big blue "Share" button

    You have absolutely no control over the choice of menu design, forced to look at a big blue “share” button, a feedback button and a question mark. When operating in half screen the frequently used menu items I have chosen are hidden, because you think I want to share, learn or send feedback. Give me the ability to remove and take charge of my workspace environment.

  3. [Bug Report] Clicking an option from a dropdown form field results in the wrong one being selected

    For a long time now I have noticed a peculiar bug that only sometimes rears its head. By now I'm pretty sure it is a bug and not something I'm doing wrong, as I've had this same issue appear in multiple AcroForms that I have made, all with different content.

    What happens is illustrated well with the screen recording I made, see the attached file.

    How to reproduce:

    • This is with an AcroForm drop-down field that has about 200 entries.
    • This drop-down field has the options "Allow user to enter custom text" and "Commit selected value immediately" selected.…

  4. Acrobat Pro DC Form edit mode selection is BROKEN

    In form edit mode, using the Select Object Tool. When selecting a column of form objects (e.g. check boxes) ALL non form objects are selected, and the tool reverts to the Edit too. This renders it impossible to perform actions on the form objects alone

    In the file, try and select a column of checkboxes to match the behaviour.

    This worked fine before the last update, currently on 2019.021.20047

    I would suggest removing the Edit tool from the Form Edit mode, it is not necessary. It is available in the PDF Edit mode.

    When I want to work on form…

  5. Preflight BUG: under MacOS Mojave 10.14.4 (18E226) in Acrobat Pro version 2019.010.20098

    under MacOS Mojave 10.14.4 (18E226) in Acrobat Pro version 2019.010.20098 when we try to perform run a preflight fix (generate 2 mm bleed), Acrobat can't do it telling there was an error but not showing what error. The same fix applied on the same file using the same version of acrobat works perfectly under MacOS 10.11.6 - We tested it on different machines with the latest version of MacOS and Acrobat.

  7. Killing Acrobat with "updates"

    Why do you insist on killing the ease with which users can access options in Acrobat with your new feature "updates"

    I used to be able to hit the mail icon in the top and attach to a mail file in an instant, now you've upgraded this "feature" by making it an expanding sidebar and burying the email option in drop-downs.

    Stop thinking you are improving Adobe products when clearly you are not.

    This is pathetic.

  8. Ctrl+F -- Highlight Existing Search Text When Doing a New Find

    In previous versions the Ctrl+F box would appear and you would type your text and hit enter. When searching your next text using the Ctrl+F shortcut would automatically highlight the last search text so you could automatically start typing your new 'find' text. With the new update, it doesn't highlight the last search text, instead it puts the cursor at the end of your last text making you backspace the text or stop and click to highlight the text. This is a huge efficiency loss!! Please help!

  10. Bug: Reading Order Right-Click Context Menu Loses Items

    As the title states, the right-click context menu is not consistent when in the Accessibility Reading Order tool. For example, when right-clicking tables to access the Table Editor and/or Edit Table Summary views, those items are sometimes not available.

    With the Table Editor you can still at least access the floating Reading Order window to click open the Table Editor. However, when the Edit Table Summary menu item disappears (they always disappear in pairs), I have to manually save the PDF to refresh its context menu. Sometimes I have to close out completely. It appears random. I can go for…

  11. Accessibility Table Tags, Table Summary, H1-3 are not being read by screen readers NVDA and JAWS

    We received this document from a vendor and it wasn't tagged for accessibility. I went through page by page, adding figure alternative text, table summaries, and tagged H1 through H3 headings. Then using Adobe's book mark tool I auto-generated the bookmarks based on the H1-3 heading tags.

    I sent this document to our 508C consultant who is blind. He used NVDA and JAWS to read the document. He found all of the alt text for figures but could not see the H1-3 tags nor could he see any of the tables or table summaries.

    I double checked the document using…

  13. Admin Feature: Download/Cache All Document Cloud Files

    When a user is termed the IT department would like to be able to download a copy of all the Document Cloud files the user has created. As the files only exist in the cloud and no local copy is saved this requires IT to download files manually, with a max of 100mb or 50 files. Please allow files to be cached locally (and thus backed up with the PC) or allow user to download a full copy of their document cloud storage at one time.

    Additionally, add a storage used tab in the admin portal so IT can see…

  14. Scanning with Adobe Acrobat DC Version 19.012.20036

    After updating to version 19.012.20036 we have an issue with scanning. Example: We scan pages using our scanners document feeder. Then we select "Enhance Scans", "Insert Pages", "From Scanner" and feed more pages. Then when we try to load the feeder and scan additional pages, it won't let you select "Scan" again. If you click "Close" and then "Close" again in the upper right corner, it will let you scan more pages 1 time and then it won't let you do it again. Before, we could keep adding additional pages to the document feeder and keep scanning.

  15. cannot type text into text box

    When I create a text box and then have to move it, no amount of single or double clicking will let me type text in the box. You can see in the attached movie that the cursor appears briefly, but then it disappears.

    The only way to deal with it is to delete the box, recreate it, and hope that it will let you type text this time.

    (The problem with that **** trash can has been covered separately.)

    I work on books and have to make these text boxes hundreds of times a day. The added time it takes…

  16. Enable ability to save PDFs in Adobe Scan to One Drive

    Many corporations use One Drive in conjunction with Acrobat and Adobe Scan - currently to move an Adobe Scan PDF to One Drive, a user first saves to their default Adobe document cloud account, and then has to download to their computer, and then re-save to One Drive, which is not a bit user/ customer friendly

  19. OCR function improvement.

    Hello,

    I have noticed that some of the other OCR software performs better than Adobe Acrobat DC OCR function... i.e. Power PDF. I wonder if you can improve it's functionality as far as recognizing the characters is concerned?...
