  1. Rotate Clockwise Save

    Hello Adobe Engineering Team,

    In prior versions of Adobe, when I opened a document and right-clicked on it to rotate it to the proper orientation, the Save option appeared to allow me to quickly save the changed orientation.

    Latest version of Adobe requires me to click on Organize pages feature, select the pages, click the rotate buttons to orient the pages correctly, then Save option appears.

    There are a lot more steps needed in latest version of Adobe to quickly change a PDF document's orientation than in prior versions.

    It would be nice to allow users to save a PDF…

  2. Problem showing comments sorted by date

    Hey from Germany,

    I'm trying to use Adobe Acrobat Pro DC for the second time. My job is to correct texts by using the "comment" function; my favourite function is sorting my comments by date, so that I can see what I did last. I love the function that the comment list is grouped by days; it happens frequently that I have 150, 300, 500, 1000 comments a day – and there the list seems to have a poblem: After a certain number of entries a day, I cannot scroll down anymore and the list is cut off at the…

  3. Please add the Text add icon to the main tool bar. Why cant it be part of that?

    I always have to open the comments bar to add text. Why not just have that T in the main bar or allow us to add that. Also, why is the icon for Comments bar the same as sticky note? Odd. so please give us ability to choose more icons for the main bar. Takes too much time opening different bars. That is not efficient at all. And make that comments icon different than the sticky note one. Strange.

  4. I hate everything about the acrobat pro DC menus

    So far I hate everything about the acrobat pro DC menus and it has been 2 years, I keep hoping for an update backward for the old menu.
    Changing the way pdf are managed and adding additional features, is great but why would you change menus commands and locations.
    We are all using computers not tablets, and the so called lighter theme sucks.

  5. Portfolios created in earlier versions of acrobat opened in Acrobat DC

    Currently in acrobat dc opening old portfolios created with older versions are rendered useless. Very few options for operations are available. To convert older portfolios suitable in dc, I had to go through following process:

    There is a way to convert xi portfolio to dc portfolio:

    Try this:

    Open portfolio created in xi in acrobat dc
    right click anywhere, select all - this will select all files in portfolio
    extract files
    save to a temporary folder, say working files
    select all files in working files folder
    right click, combine files in acrobat
    select save as portfolio or uncheck save as…

  6. Mass Edit PDF Meta Data

    Per support, it is not currently possible to mass edit the Title attribute of multiple PDFs simultaneously. It would be very helpful to be able to mass edit PDF meta data.

    Example: A user has hundreds of PDFs. Many of them have a single space as the Title attribute. This is confusing for the user since it appears to them that no title is displayed when opening a PDF.

    Using Action Wizard, you could select the folder with the PDFs and edit the title attribute for all the PDFs simultaneously.

  7. The AcrobatDC plugin for Internet Explorer, the select region function is useless. It displays a box around the region, does nothing with it

    Fix the IE plugin "Select" feature. It shows the red line box around a screen region, does not keep the region selected, and then proceeds to make a PDF of the ENTIRE web page, not the chosen region. And it makes the PDF in landscape orientation, with all the menus, footers, headers, and junk we don't need. There seems to be no way to fix this behavior in Acrobat DC.

  8. Copy-paste for ligatures

    When selecting and copying passages of text from a PDF, commonly ligatures (e.g. special characters that represent a group of two characteris such as "fl"), are copied as special characters.

    Upon pasting into Word or other software these special characters are often not recognized.

    It would make much sense to have "smart" copy-and-paste that automatically converts ligatures into the respective single characters.

  13. Latin OCR support

    An ocean of old texts are in Latin. Many of these need OCR. Support on this would be most welcome as they are often the subject of academic work.

  14. comment

    I highlight and annotate documents a lot for pre-production scripts to visualize filming production. I'd love to have the comment feature add more intuitive highlighting features and ability to link to a storyboard or visualization I have for that specific scene or line.

  16. auto fill not working

    When auto-complete is turned on for a form, field entries are being saved but fail to auto-complete. For a form created in Acrobat, I can go to Edit-->Preferences-->Forms-->Auto-Complete-->Edit Entry List and see all the strings I would like to auto-complete. But they never auto-complete. I can find no factor why that is failing

  18. Make it stable guys.

    Acrobat reader is extremly slow and freezes up a lot. crashing has been reduced over time but it still lags for about 5 to 6 seconds after opening a pdf. openign a pdf file also take a lot of time.

    The editing capablities are poorly designed. no snapping. no aligninig to page. the most terible app that adobe has ever made is this. you guys devloped pdf and you can't even open it without 6 second freezing. i am very disaapointed. please fix the whole thing.

  19. Change Default Font

    Why can I not change the default font in Adobe Acrobat XI Pro from Minion to what I want? The "J" in Minion looks like an "I" and I have a "J" in my company name which is causing problems because it looks like an "I". I know this has been asked before but why is there no answer. Ugh!

  20. Import files or folders to Document Cloud

    It would be nice if I can import pdf files from various folders or folder on my desktop to the cloud without opening and saving each file individually. Also, a security feature at folder level would be an advantage.
