  1. BUG - Error occuring with Send for Signature when Message is too long.

    When using Adobe Sign to send a document for signing, if the Message has too many characters, it causes an error 'COULD NOT COMPLETE YOUR REQUEST - An error occurred while connecting to the service. Please try again later.'
    Have tried multiple times and only when the message is cut short will it work.

  2. Make it more like Bluebeam and less like Adobe Acrobat.

    Is there an "Everything" category? There's a reason corporations are moving wholesale to Bluebeam and ditching Adobe Acrobat. It's an awful pile of steaming poo in comparison. Bluebeam has infinitely more usability and utility. In Adobe, it takes a ridiculous amount of unintuitive clicks to get anything done, marking up or drawing anything with shapes is a clustercluck, just managing the organization of a document is a nightmare. If I had control over the software our company uses, Adobe would be gone in an instant. The only way they can get away with this crime is by practically giving it…

  4. Random Minimizing Overlay

    I am running the Adobe Suite on a Mac Pro.

    After maximizing Adobe Acrobat with a PDF I'm interested in reading, I usually go and browse the internet (Google Chrome). While browsing, Acrobat will randomly minimize and lay over my browser. In order to remove it, I have to re-maximize. I'm not sure why it does this.

  6. There are so many way to set default page zoom, but none behave globally

    I've set 'page zoom to defualt width' in 4 different areas and i can't get the desired behavior of keeping the same zoom level when I click betwen chapters (short of manually setting the click>go to behavior for each chapter). Main properties doesn't have an effect and neither does setting the default page zoom from the properties menu accessed from the side panel (with all the chapter links). The top bar page zoom is reset after every chapter jump.

  7. Checkbox to set rulers point of origin at the trim box (preferences)

    The point of origin of the rulers in Acrobat professional is at the top left of the medium size of the pdf. It would be very handy to select a checkbox in the preferences to set this point to the upper left of the trim box instead of the mediabox. - OR it would be nice to change this point of origin like in InDesign. This way it is much easier to check distances or sizes of elements in Acrobat.

  8. Make the Zero point on the rule movable

    All other software have movable rulers, it is handy to be able to adjust your starting point when checking positions of elements.

  9. Make Adobe easier to use

    Why does Adobe go out of its way to make Adobe Acrobat so hard to use? It is not well organized with tools and commands spread everywhere on the screen. Worse, there seems to be zero logic as to how it is organized--except that it appears to be in the most confusing way possible. So frustrating.

  10. Garbage

    Get rid of new version. You have added so much eye candy that simple tasks have become difficult. Fire your staff and live off the royalties of your old version. Your harrassed users will thank you.

  11. Request: Layout Grid transparency option

    It would be helpful if the layout grid could be made transparent under Preferences>Units & Guides>Layout Grid. It's a very useful feature but occasionally it aligns with important elements like negative signs and hides them. Ideally the opacity would be an adjustable %, but a checkbox that toggles some set amount would work too.

  12. De-simplify Acrobat Pro (it's for "Pro"fessionals)

    Acrobat Pro is used for intense, professional work. It's current incarnation is stripped down for an emphasis on reading, adding a few comments, and signing PDFs: in other words, the functions of the Standard version.

    Please bring Acrobat Pro up to the standard set by Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator. Please unify the user interfaces and commands with the other tools in the Creative Cloud so that professionals feel at home with the tool that helps them collaborate in a world where PDF is the digital deliverable format of choice.

  14. Disable Document Cloud

    Converting a PSD to a PDF file takes forever because of the completely unnecessary detour via Document Cloud.
    Besides of serious privacy and security issues, it's just insane to upload a PSD from my harddrive, just to download it again and create a PDF, which is again saved on my harddrive.
    it would be alright if it would work, but more often than not it just stops the progress bar while "uploading". Even if it works, it takes ages!

    Please make an EASY OPTION (like a buton) to disable the Document Cloud.

    Sincerely,
    Everyone!

  15. Window Snap Bug

    When I first snap the window to the side it fills half the screen perfectly just how it's supposed to, but after opening and closing some pdf's I start to notice that the window is no longer a snug fit to the sides and I have to re-snap it again. It just seems that over time the window shrinks a tad.

    I'm using a TCL 44" Roku TV (second display) & Nvidia Quadro P1000

  20. Make giant annoying window go away. I don't want it. EVER. Especially when PDFs are closed. It dominates my desktop, makes me hate Adobe.

    Make the giant splash screen close when documents close. Also make it default to a SMALLER size if I have resized it in a previous session. Stop making your software overbearing.
