  1. F2 should be returned to renaming function

    With the newest update, F2 (used universally for renaming across every other PC/Windows program/functionality) was changed to a help function that brings up an Adobe Internet help site.

    F1 is used universally for help, and no one needs that much access to Adobe help pages.

    F2 should be returned to renaming. Ctrl-F2 is a ridiculous and difficult change for renaming and it's the worst idea ever.

    I remediate hundreds of PDFs for accessibility, and having to make a more complicated keystroke to rename tags is a huge problem.

  2. cross-platform interoperability for Acrobat DC

    use of Acrobat DC must be seamless across operating systems, browsers, and devices. seamless interoperability = efficiency. Proprietary in-fighting between apple, microsoft, and google needs to stop. Why not work together for the benefit of all?The business models need to change. For example, "accessibility" of apps needs to be independent of browser, OS, and device.

  3. Please remove "Please wait while the document is being prepared"

    Please switch off "Please wait while the document is being prepared" displayed each time I open a document. This feature is necessary only for selected users and hampers very much typical program use.

  4. Copy PDFs within Document Cloud

    It would be great if from within Adobe Document Cloud we could make copies of PDFs. Currently the workflow that was described to me from tech support was that I would have to download the PDF then upload another copy.

  5. The fix in the link https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/send-email-attachment.html doesn't work. PLEASE just fix this in the program!

    None of the fixes or downloads work to enable the single-click email like there was in the older versions. The link in https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/kb/send-email-attachment.html requires too many permissions and my company won't let me download it. PLEASE JUST CHANGE IT BACK TO THE WAY IT WAS!

    Hi,
    Could you please use the following registry file to switch to older email experience:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\DC\FeatureLockDown]
    “bSendMailShareRedirection”=dword:00000000

    I hope this helps, please let me know if you face any issues.

  6. Metadata (document properties) from Microsoft documents

    When I used to create PDFs from Word documents in Windows 7, the PDF would automatically inherit the Title, Subject, and Author properties.

    In Windows 10/Acrobat Pro 17 this is no longer the case. All of these fields are blank.

    I don't know if this is a change in Acrobat or Word (Office 365), but it's a major pain to set these properties manually every time.

  7. Keyboard shortcut for previous result in Find and Replace dialog

    We can use "Enter" to go to the next result when finding text in a PDF, but there is no keyboard shortcut to go to the previous result. I expected "Shift+Enter" to go the previous result, following the convention of using "Shift+<Key>" to navigate backwards, but instead, "Shift+Enter" just goes to the next result.

  8. Shrinking files

    It's a shame, that Acrobat makes it such a harmfully experience to lower the filesize of a pdf (coming from photoshop Artboard to PDF Export), that actually does nothing!

    Filesize goes from 18 MB to 17,5 MB or something (if it even works without errors you can't debug because you can't do something about it).

    In the end I have to buy and use third party tools like pdf squeezer (for mac).
    One click, and it shrinks the 18 MB to 600 KB! Without lowering the quality!!

    Adobe please work on your UI for Acrobat Pro.
    Or even better: Work…

  9. BUG REPORT: accessibility issue on PDF export from InDesign

    The latest version of InDesign exports PDF's in which most all the tagged content is in an Xobject container, making accessibility remediation MUCH MORE DIFFICULT. This is a huge step backwards. Attached are two examples, from the same client, annual reports- last year's was fine, this year's has all the xobject issues. Please advise, help, fix, something!!!

  11. Keep stamp tool selected (more than one stamp at a time)

    Please provide an option to keep a stamp selected to use multiple times in a row. For instance, I use stamps to place checkmarks on documents and I have to click the stamp each time I want to place it as it deselects after every placement.

  12. Accessibility settings are difficult to find

    Why default to yellow text on white background? It's impossible to read. Personally, some DARK themes would be desirable, i.e. yellow text on black background. Is a SIMPLE link to change SETTINGS in this regard?

  15. Dialog Utility for Batch PDF Conversion from Office/Docs to PDF

    Create a right click utility option to be able to batch convert files to PDF without prompting for each document save. Your competitors have this feature and Adobe Acrobat should be able to do this without "actions" or other workarounds.

    Complete the following use case.


    1. Highlight multiple Office/Document files (even 50-100 is possible)
      1A. Right click the documents

    2. Click "Batch Convert to PDF"

    3. A dialog opens, lists all selected files, has the ability to add new or remove files, asks where to save all PDFs and what settings such as PDF/A, quality, etc

    4. Have multiple conversion options such as "Convert…

  18. Devise easy conversion of 2 column PDF text to single column would make read out loud more useful.

    A tool for single click conversion of 2-column text to ingle column text would make the read out loud more useful. Have I missed such a tool? Does such a tool already exist? MS word read out loud evidently suffers from the same problem.

  20. Can no longer drag pdf files from Acrobat Pro DC directly into email, must instead click "share", WAIT..., etc.

    New Acrobat Pro DC version no longer allows dragging the pdf icon from the top bar in directly into email.

    Instead one must hit "share", WAIT..., then click "Send as attachment" then click "continue" to let it use the native email, then WAIT, then drag the pdf from that newly created email into the intended email.
