  1. Dock Properties Bar

    Through version 9, the properties bar was dock-able. Since X it is not, but it should be. Properties are always useful, it is annoying to have it floating over the document when I have toolbar space at the top of my screen sitting empty and gray and sad. I get that the properties toolbar is context sensitive so it will grow and shrink, but it was in 9 also. Please make all toolbars dockable!

  2. "Copy Image" or "Save Image as..." don't work correctly for one specific image in my file

    I use Acrobat Version 2015.023.20070 on Windows and the functions "Copy Image" and "Save Image as..." - when selecting an image inside a pdf - work correctly in all cases so far, except:

    Except for this specific diagram image at the bottom of the pdf slide attached, where the result is just a distorted part of the original image. I can reproduce the results. Note that if I use "Save Image as..." the resulting file is different from what I get when I use "Copy Image" and paste it into MS Word or MS Paint or Photoshop.

    This pdf slide…

  4. Roman Numerals (Page Labels) in headers

    I would like the ability to add Roman Numerals in headers. Right now, adding a page number within the Headers and Footers dialog box does not allow me to use Roman Numerals (page labels).

    Thanks.

  5. Ability to add more toolbars

    It was very cool in early versions that it was possible to add more toolbars. Its annoying that the space is limited for the extra tools I want to add into the tool bar.
    I would like to ask for adding the ability to add a new-line/toolbar so all the tools I add can be visible without need to expand a menu by clicking on the dots at the right side.

  6. Loops don't function properly when using the variable 'c' as the loop counter

    Javascript loops don't function properly when using the variable 'c' as the loop counter, e.g.

    for(var c=0;c<10;c++) {
    //this code would run more than 10 times
    }

  8. Export to Microsoft Word


    1. Open a PDF document with Arabic content.


    2. This PDF was generated from InDesign CC2017. Arabic fonts used is a good True Type and OpenType fonts. Macintosh 10.11.2 / Acrobat DC Build: 15.23.20056.213124


    3. When exporting to MS Office format, we expect to have a decent conversion as we see with PDFs that has English content.


    4. I opened resulted Word document in MS. Word on Windows, Text Edit on Mac, Apple Preview. The result varies, but generally Arabic text doesn't convert properly, most words scrambled and fragmented.

  9. Remove just one header/footer and not others/remove all headers/footers

    It would be nice to have the ability to remove just one footer instead of removing all headers/footers. For example, I work on large publications and would like to be able to leave the different headers and copyright footers for each chapter in place, but be able to update the page numbers. Currently, when I remove or update a header/footer, it effects ALL headers/footers. There should be a menu option to pick and choose which headers/footers to alter.

  10. expired trial

    I keep getting offers to try out Acrobat Pro DC. I install it. It says I have zero days left, since I used my trial when it first came out. Since this is going to be an evergreen product, I'd like to see the "timer" on the trial expire, so that I can see if the newest version is something I'm interested in/features improved, etc.

  11. Bug report: unable to cancel out of changing/replacing watermark if you accidently choose watermark on a document that already has one.

    Currently if you accidentally choose to add a watermark on a document that already has one, there is no way to cancel it. You have to either go through the settings and replace it with what is already there or choose a new one. This has happened several times and the only way to get out of it is to end task on Adobe.

  12. Provide date with 'signature block' when recipient chooses image.

    Using 'Send for Signature' with added signature block. Date does not appear when uploading an image. Unlike type and draw which has the date automatically added under the signature. See tickets #0188780191 and #0188780008 on 3/21/17.

  13. After OCR, would like spell check feature to review OCR errors beyond correct recognized text feature

    After OCR, would like spell check feature to review OCR errors beyond correct recognized text feature. OCR has errors. Also, would like to have the option to tell OCR to search but selectively remove symbols from OCR responses. many documents have no "~" or "|" (shift backslash) also would like to eliminate the search for British pound symbol. The user would then selectively help the OCR to eliminate some responses.

  14. Out of Memory Error/Draw Error

    I am running Adobe Acrobat DC on a Windows 7 machine with 16GB of RAM and an NVidia NVS 310 Graphics Card. I have no issues regarding visual display or memory with other software. When running Adobe Acrobat DC, I frequently encounter issues where the file/program crashes, giving an error that it is Out of Memory or encountering a Draw Error. This has happened while reading multiple different PDF files, usually after I have been scrolling through the file for a short time. Usually, when this message occurs the page displays as a blank white page, and if I continue…

  17. I'd like to be able to make a flip book (that turns the page like a magazine)

    Title says it really. It's simply that there a lot of 'make your own flip books' softwares out there, but they are not well designed and expensive, when this feels like it is a sensible add on to what one can already do with Adobe PDF pro. It's annoying to have to go elsewhere for pdf expertise, as I feel Adobe should be able to smash this themselves.

  18. Set a default location when saving or opening files

    It would be great if we could manage the default location of the directory that adobe auto opens to save a file to. And for opening previously saved files as well.

  19. Improve the Bates Numbering

    Currently the Bates Numbering option does not allow the user to select folder and subfolders to the window for incorporating Bates Numbering. Users currently have to separate the subfolders onto the desktop and then add each folder separately to the list, once all the folders are added, the functionality can then be operated. However, most of the time users have up to 500 subfolders, so its essential that the subfolders are numbered to that the Bates numbering follows numerically correctly. There are other products that can already do this, so why cant Adobe
