  1. Loupe Window Persistence

    I use the loupe tool very frequently, and I would like to have the software remember the size/location/magnification of the last usage for the loupe window, even after completely exiting the program and starting a new session. It is irritating to be forced to resize and relocate this window every time I wish to use the loupe tool (the magnification does persist).
    If I keep at least one PDF file open, then the size/location of the window is remembered. However, once I close Acrobat Pro DC completely, the loupe window reverts to its default size/location.
    (Although I cannot prove it,…

  2. Enable a keyboard shortcut to add a checkmark to a comment

    When I get a PDF back from a proofreader, I have to review hundreds of comments. The only way to add a checkmark to a comment is by using the mouse. This gets very tedious. Please add a shortcut that adds a checkmark to a selected comment.

  3. Inherit Zoom setting for all bookmarks (Court requirements for filing electronic documents)

    The standard setting for a bookmark is Fit Width. The ability to change that to Inherit Zoom or other setting is necessary as the Courts require bookmarked documents with Inherit Zoom setting. It takes 8 clicks per bookmark to change this. There is no way to select all bookmarks and change them all at once or make a permanent setting. I submit Administrative Records with hundreds, sometimes thousands of bookmarks and each one of those has to be individually clicked on and changed - x 8 clicks. Very tedious and time consuming.

    Hi,

    We are delighted to share with you that Acrobat and Reader Desktop release for DC Continuous (20.012.20041) is Live now and this takes care of this Feature Request

    For more Info refer here : https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/whats-new.html

    The Set Default Bookmark Zoom Level menu item is now added to the PDF bookmark options. While creating a new bookmark, you can easily use this option to set the default zoom level. By default, the Inherit Zoom option is selected.

    Also, Acrobat now provides an option in the bookmark properties to retain the destination page number when you adjust the zoom level of multiple bookmarks.

    Please update your Acrobat (It should Auto update or you should do Help → Check for updates) and let us know your Feedback.

    Thanks

  4. Update from 11.0.19 to 11.0.20 corrupts registry key

    As has been reported here and elsewhere repeatedly, installing updates to Adobe Pro corrupts a registry key. Every time an Adobe Acrobat update is applied, the DDE connection from applications to the Acrobat server is broken. The patch installation erroneously changes the following entry to "AcroViewA10".

    [HKEYCLASSESROOT\acrobat\shell\open\ddeexec\application]
    @="AcroViewA11"

  6. Edit default split pages number or set it permanently to 1

    We often need to split a document into a single file per page. We almost NEVER split a document by every two pages.

    Having to edit this number each time is redundant. I would like the option to either edit the default "split by" setting (and additionally the output settings) or alternatively have the default be 1 page.

  7. page controls

    Please make it possible in settings to PERMANENTLY hide page control from the document AND from the toolbar. I was able to get rid of them by selecting "hide page controls" after View, Show/Hide, Page Controls, but the controls appear again when I re-open Adobe. I know page controls can be switched from toolbar to document, and I know all the tool bars can be hidden. But I don't want to hide all the tools - I've customized the tool bar with the tools I use all the time. I just want to get rid of the page controls, which…

  11. make "," a "safe character" in javascript code as a part of the saveas() function

    i have a script that with batch forms merges using excel data and i want to save them as [last name], [first name].

    it's important because 1. i have a lot of people with the same last name 2. some of the last names have two names and some of the first names have two names so it's not obvious which is the last name and 3. it's ridiculous that other characters like underscores, hyphens and semi-colons are safe, but commas aren't

    this.saveAs(outputDir + "1150 " + this.getField("Last Name").value + " , " + this.getField("First Name").value + ".pdf");

  12. Be able to show Rulers & Guides by default

    It would be useful in Preferences to turn on Show Rulers & Guides by Default. At present you have to go to "View / Show/hide / Rulers & Grids" for every new PDF that you open.

In the latest version of Acrobat this icons are white gray and not active when the text is selected. For me there is obvious problem between the…

  14. Keep added view columns in PDF Portfolio of emails converted to a PDF portfolio

    In Acrobat X one could add view columns, such as "to" and "folder" to a PDF Portfolio of emails, and save the portfolio to keep the added columns. When the portfolio was opened again the added view columns would still be there. Please add this feature to Acrobat Pro DC.

    With the latest release, we have added a checkbox that will turn off the automatic OCR.

    1. Open any scanned pdf.
    2. Go to Edit PDF.
    3. Wait for OCR to complete.
    4. On the right hand pane, uncheck the “Recognize text” option. (Alternatively, if you see a button ‘Revert to Image’, click on it).

    This will turn off the auto-OCR feature. Now, Acrobat will not run OCR automatically. Acrobat remembers this setting so that you do not have to uncheck it again.

    Let us know if this helps.
    For more information about this, visit https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/edit-scanned-pdfs.html

  16. Acrobat/Reader should support dynamic DPI scaling.

    We work on multiple monitor in our office. Our monitors have different scaling factor settings. When we drag Acrobat window from one display device to another it doesn't scale as per the new scaling factor.
