  1. Page Thumbnails Is too big

    It would be nice to be able to change size of the Page Thumbnails to icon size. Currently it is too big.

  2. Command Click Title Bar Finder MacOS

    I've noticed that with recent updates to Adobe Acrobat DC that one can no longer Command-Click the title bar of the window to open the containing folder in Finder. This works for other apps. This is really useful when trying to find the file.

  3. Restore choice of default view opening pdf for first time (e.g., 2-up cont. scroll)

    Acrobat DC is better than 11.x in many ways, but one lost feature is the ability to default opening documents viewed for the first time with 2-up continuous view (or other choices). Downloading pdfs from many sources, pdfs may be single page, single page scroll, etc, with bookmarks or menus open or closed. Acro11 actually worked when setting this default to 2-up. In DC preferences/page display/default layout & zoom, setting to 2-up has ZERO effect on documents opened for the first time. They open in the default of the provider. Please make this function WORK, as it did in v11.…

  5. Quick Access Toolbar:Expand to 2+ lines so ICONS fit on main screen = Disappeared from prev Acorbat XI

    The Acrobat XI version before Acrobat XI Pro 2017 let the user drag the corner of the QAT (Quick Access Toolbar) so that it would expand to 2 or more lines. That way, the most-used icons would all be on the main screen without the insessant need to click on the 3 buttons to expand the options and see the icons .... Worse yet, if there are many icons, you have to press the down-arrow to get there. Yes, I understand that the icons can be 'moved up'.

  7. Permanent Toolbar Display and Features

    Longtime Bluebeam User... How can you not have toolbars permanently accessible? Similarly, when you create "quick tools" and you use one how to the tool properties (colors, fonts, etc.) not show up when the quick tool is selected for use. After using this for the last month I realize it is not really competing in the same space as Bluebeam but these are some functional items that cause users to make 4-5 clicks instead of 1, on markups of large plan sets this can add a lot of time to the effort, reducing efficiency.

  8. Adobe Acrobat Pro DC Needs File Management Chops

    Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, unlike its vastly superior predecessor, Adobe Acrobat Pro XI, is extraordinarily poor in the file management window department.

    The search functions are terrible, and it is not possible to sort documents by the various parameters. Nor does it 'remember' what folder you used previously, so that you are always having to search back through the folders to get to where you want to be. It's very hard to figure out where you are by looking at the top of the file folder screen. Basically what used to be a great UI, is horrible.

    The idea is…

  9. As everyone has said, the tools and overall layout is a nightmare.

    Why cant I zoom out of the default oversize document? Whose grandmother set these defaults?

  10. Toolbar icons keep changing/moving/disappearing

    Step back in functionality and hugely annoying--icons take up too much room, and seem to move/float around. I just had to add the "view one page" and "view full width" icons (side by side, BTW) to my toolbar, when they had been there just a few days ago.

  11. "Save as..." button in the File tools

    Just a button for the "Save As..." function. I use this a lot for saving files I open from email attachments.

  14. Strange icon for Reader DC and Fill and Sign failures

    The Reader DC icon on my Mac changed to this and now the "Fill & Sign" feature constantly crashes. This happened after the last DC update which shows this:
    Architecture: x86_64
    Build: 19.21.20047.353337
    AGM: 4.30.91
    CoolType: 5.14.5
    JP2K: 1.2.2.44610

    See the attached file for the icon that appears.

    Do you think the two items (strange icon and constant crashing) could be related? I have to use the Adobe Uninstaller to remove DC to clean it out completely, then reinstall DC. It will work for one or two documents, then returns to continuous crashing, whereupon I have to uninstall and reinstall.…

  15. "night mode" "acrobat reader"

    Please add a "night mode" option in acrobat reader and acrobat pro for Mac OS, similar to the "night mode" in acrobat reader iOS app.

    The workaround to change text and background colours in the accessibility preferences does not work for scanned documents.

  17. Icon in window frame invisibile/undraggable (Osx)

    After last update (Osx and CC 2020) there is no icon on the top of the opened documents frame in Acrobat. Usually, to speed the work, I export PDF from Indesign, automatically they open in Acrobat and I drag the icon to Skype. Loosing this ability I must find the document in the finder every time.
    Someone know if there is a solution to restore this function?
    Thank you

  18. There was a RAISE without a handler. The application will now exit.

    There was a RAISE without a handler. The application will now exit.
    When I do a three finger tap on any text so I can get a word defined (this is on mac), the program has the above error. This error results with every doc I have on my computer. When I try to reopen acrobat, it asks me to restore. Restoring simply doesn't work, I can click on it but none of my precious work shows up. :(((
    I'm on MacOS Catalina 10.15.

  19. Why is everything so much more cumbersome to use in Acrobat DC than Acrobat XI?

    It seems like every simple task I was used to doing in Acrobat XI takes more clicks and time to perform in Acrobat DC. Seriously, what can this version do that makes this upgrade worthwhile? So far, it's a complete disaster.
