  1. Hide the new black box when a comment is selected

    The new black box (when a comment is selected) gets in the way and obscures the page contents. Add the option in Preferences to turn it off or hide it.

  3. Set Default Link Actions (zoom especially)

    I make ADA Accessible documents. Inherit Zoom is a necessary thing.

    When I need to combine multiple pdf files into one document I often create a narrative that includes links to other pages of that document. I back up those links with bookmarks.

    While it's quite easy to change all of the bookmark actions at once to Inherit Zoom, it's not so easy to change the links.

    Currently each link action must be edited individually. And each Zoom is set to custom. There is considerable time taken to adjust each one, especially when I have 50 to 200 links in…

  4. 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.

  6. Differentiate "Zoom to Page" and "Show Page Only" icons

    The icons for "Zoom to Page Level" and "Show only one page at a time" are nearly identical. What's worse, when I put both of them on my toolbar, Acrobat places them side-by-side, intentionally causing confusion..

    These commands do different things and need to be better differentiated in icon form.

  7. Extracting Pages

    Extracting a page without a numerical "page label" is a waste of time because you have to hit 'Organize' then hit the 'More' button and select 'Page labels' then 'select all' then choose your 'style', delete the prefix to be able to give it a page number in order for the action to work. God forbid you lose you place & cant recall the sheet or sheets you need.
    Please allow us to extract regardless of page labels. I've attached my screen shot of the error you get when trying to extract without a numerical page label.

    If I'm doing…

  8. Add an option to set the default bookmark properties when combining PDF files.

    When combining multiple PDF files into a single document with bookmarks, I want to be able to set the default bookmark properties. For example, I may want all bookmarks to include the ACTION: Go to a page view, and ZOOM LEVEL: Fit Page. Currently, I have to change the properties of each bookmark separately.

  13. Redaction options are missing in 19.8.20071

    Build 19.8.20071 has completely removed the redaction pop-up menu to "repeat mark across pages", "apply redactions", and to choose from the user-defined code set. The only way to apply redaction codes is to manually go into the properties menu on each and every redaction to apply the redaction code.

  14. Action does not open from quick tools shortcut

    Action does not open from quick tools shortcut until the "Action Wizard" tool is opened. Previous versions openened the pinned action in the side panel without the need to then also open the "Action Wizard" tool. It makes a mockery of having shortcut of the action in the first place!

  17. Google Drive

    Google Drive should be accessible from Adobe and all of its products. I'm sure you've heard of Google. Many people are using it. Otherwise, your product is significantly less helpful.

  18. Acrobat deleted form fields from reading order when moved even one pixel

    I am using the latest version of Mac Acrobat DC 2018.011.20038

    1- Make a form field.
    2- Select it so you can make a <form> with the OBJR
    3- Drag it into its proper spot in the reading order.
    4- Then move it even one pixel, it will delete itself. This happens on all fields of any type. It also happens if you just resize any field.

    Since this Adobe Forum usually asks questions until people give up on the thread I even made a video of the whole thing:

    https://drive.google.com/open?id=1S79CQ53xiebkxiXmZawAML2kpSY3O6Bn
