  1. The new HUGE comment icons are botherson.

    The smaller icons were hard to match up with comments/edits, but these huge ones are impossible. Love the comment tool (as a graphic designer who passing brochures and ads off for review) but this feature surely could use improvement. Thanks!

  2. Bug. Seems like the new version of DC Pro has a lot of bug.

    Hello,

    I noticed recently when one combine 2-3.... separate PDF documents that they have been OCRed/Enhanced before the output will be an imaged PDF file and one needs to OCR/Enhance it again... was not like that before.

  3. Menu Bar is whiteout and cannot click exit to close application.

    The header of my Adobe is all whited out and I cannot click on anything or see what to click on. Even the minimize and exit don't allow me to click on them and if I do they close the application behind adobe. Are you aware of this issue?

  4. Ability to Colour Page Thumbnail

    It would be of benefit to be able to label/colour an individual page thumbnail to easily identify it in the pages panel. For instance to identify where in the document a particular edit was made or where a section starts or what page I last read. The colour would not print - it would just be for viewing purposes only.

    Thank you for the patience

  5. not able to save pdf because it is open by someone

    Why does not Adobe give an option to open a PDF on a network drive with a notification when the file becomes available for edit. This functionality is there for any MS Office file. This will allow me to update with comments or mark-ups. I do not want to go with a shared review and the rest of the workflow that is associated with it.

  6. docx no longer recognized

    I purchased 3 licenses of Adobe Pro DC for use in my office. They were each installed on different computers(all windows 10 up to date, newest version of Microsoft office). We needed the software to convert word documents to PDF for upload to our new EMR system. All three worked great at first. Then all of a sudden two of the programs stopped recognizing docx. The word documents had not changed, were all in the same docx format! The third license was and still is working, unless I try to log in from a different computer to that license, then…

  7. Receiving error: Acrobat could not perform Text Recognition on this page because: unknown error - I do not want OCR or Text Recognition!

    The application somehow started running OCR automatically - I'm unable to stop it or figure out how to turn it off. It slows down converting any document to PDF.

    How do I stop Text Recognition from running?
    I looked this up, but don't see the option to turn off.

  8. Search window "Arrange WIndows" should use full screen

    When I have the Search window open and click "Arrange Windows" a margin is left around the edges of the screen for no apparent reason. Working on my smaller laptop screen is already a challenge.
    Please use the full display.

  9. Add Quick Access to Advanced Search

    There are many times when I need to do a search through an entire folder structure containing many PDFs. So I go to Advanced Search and select All PDF Documents in, then Browse for Location. A dialog box comes up for selecting a folder. Why does this not include Quick Access? Navigating down to the folder I want is a needless pain in the neck. Seems like a simple thing to add.

  11. Find and Highlighter Tool do

    When Use the "Find" function, the words no longer highlight. They just become a Very subtle rainbow color. Same thing if I try to actually use the highlighter tool. It's really hard to determined what I've highlighted, because it doesn't visually reverse the colors as I select the words. Only once I release the mouse does the highlight appear and I can see I if have highlighted things correctly.

    This happens both in DC 2018 as well as DC 2019. It started a couple of weeks ago.

    When the new DC version came out I went into Preferences and UNCHECKED…

  12. Exported PDF does not reflect the most recent changes to my inDesign document

    When I make changes in an InDesign document and REPLACE an already existing pdf the changes I made and SAVED in InDesign do not show in the new replaced pdf file. I have to delete the old version of the pdf and save it under the same name which is more time consuming. All my co-workers seem to have the same problem.

  13. conversion from word to pdf using Adobe Cloud is worse than save as on word

    using the document cloud to convert the word doc to PDF, the page layout was messed up, there were blank pages in the pdf. Tables did not fit. It was not an exact copy of the word doc. However using the save as function on word gave the exact copy but of course without the hyperlinks

  14. Get rid of that almost-invisible new pdf icon

    This new icon makes my computer look like it has some fatal disease. Please do something about it. Who makes decisions about the new icon design? IT is not only confusing, but hard to identify and locate files. Please revise it again, soon...don't wait another 10 years.

  15. Full-screen view doesn't support two pages

    In Adobe reader, I select Page Display -> Two Page View on a large wide monitor. I then select Full Screen mode, and Reader forces me back to one page - after I've clearly indicated I want two. Why? This is an obvious user interface bug.

  17. To be able to change the timestamp of my comments in a simple way.

    As a freelancer I sometimes work in "untimely" hours for example at 05:00 am. (Many will understand me).

    For this reason I would like the option to be able to select all the changes made by me and be able to change the date and time in a simple way.

    Currently there are "tricks" but it would be more comfortable if it could be done more simply by some option.

    Thanks.

  18. Highlight text as Read Out Loud feature is reading the text

    When using the Read Out Loud feature, please have it highlight the words it is reading out loud while it is reading it. This will enable users to follow along as the program reads the document to them. Someone asked about it in the forum in 2017 and your representative kept telling them to click on the text they want the program to read to them. This is not the goal and often inconvenient. The goal is to be able to select "Read Page Only" or "Read Entire Document" and as it is read aloud by the program have the…

  19. I hate to do the work of Adobe for free and have them profit. I hate it. They love. That is why they have this forum.

    There needs to be a "swipe" option or at least a centered option, maybe an interactive option, that allows for the switching of tabs not visible in the toolbar but are open in reader. I have 15 tabs open and if I'm on just about anywhere on the screen I have to precisely navigate to these tiny, poorly positioned, pointer arrows to get back to the previous tabs which are no longer displayed and hidden from view.
