  1. Remove the big blue "Share" button

    You have absolutely no control over the choice of menu design, forced to look at a big blue “share” button, a feedback button and a question mark. When operating in half screen the frequently used menu items I have chosen are hidden, because you think I want to share, learn or send feedback. Give me the ability to remove and take charge of my workspace environment.

    You can now customize it by right clicking on the Toolbar and selecting appropriate option.

  2. Brilliant idea: let users customize their interface

    I don't want the forced tools on top, including Home, Tools, Document, and several of the page display icons. I'm a genius and I'll offer a brilliant idea: let users customize their own screen!

    When the window isn't maximized, there's insufficient room for all the tools, and the default unwanted ones prevent the ones I need from being displayed! When the + and - zoom icons aren't shown, they're also not even listed behind the 3-bullet icon on the far right! This is obviously a bug. It's further difficult since Acrobat refuses to zoom when using Ctrl-scroll on a "high-precision"…

  3. Missing mouse pointer on external display ACROBAT DC

    mouse pointer missing when using external Samsung display.
    cursor shows up on resolution 1920-1080 and 3840-2160.
    on all other resolutions cursor disappears when acrobat is opened.
    works fine on normal mac display.
    it works on all resolutions when we change the system preference in MAC and increase the cursor size.

  4. revert "Save As" dialogue

    Acrobat DC's Save As dialogue is horrible. Why does this product need to differentiate from a typical Save As--even from the rest of Adobe's products? I want to immediately be able to choose Desktop or Documents or whatever, and not have to click an additional "Choose a Different Folder..." button, just because my save location does not appear in the recent short list.

  5. Tools


    1. You should be able to "pin" tool bars of your choosing and have them automatically be in your workspace when you open a pdf.

    This use to work and now does not. It is extremely frustrating.


    1. There are way too many clicks involved to open up the navigation pane. I should not have to memorize shortcuts to do such a simple task.

  6. Cannot fix resolution problem because the Apply button isn't visible, due to resolution problem

    The banner (top of the frame) is too large, as is the Find box when you ctrl+F. When you try to fix this in the properties area, this area is also too large. I am assuming this is making an apply button run off of the visible area of the window. When i try to fix the resolution (from Auto-Detect, which I'm assuming is also part of the problem) to 100% it doesn't fix it when I close the window (which is why I assume there is an "apply" button that I cannot see or use - See Bottom of…

  7. Display navigation pane by default

    We still desperately need to be able to show the navigation bar by default. I understand that certain features of it may not be available due to settings in the PDF. I use this program to view 99% of the time and it's a real hassle clicking around every time, to show the thumbnails.

    Every rudimentary viewer allows thumbnails to be shown by default and I believe previous versions of Acrobat did as well.

    Please allow this navigation pane and the selected tab to be sticky.

  8. how to improve adobe acrobat dc

    I have been using adobe acrobat pro 9 for over 10 years, and recently I have to switch over to acrobat DC, and find it bizarre.

    1. First, the user interface has been completely redesign, not allowing one to switch back to the previous UI.
    2. Also, I find the number of key strokes needed to do a simple task, has greatly increase. I do a lot of cut-and-paste with my old acrobat, and it was convenient. With the new DC, after finally figure out how to do it, it involves a lot more key strokes. A regression!
    3. The…

  11. Fit page to window

  12. My feedback- v2019.008.20071

    Viewing the PDF. The new version has managed to remove the two buttons I use the most often from the Menu bar. Would you please put back the Zoom\Fit Width and Zoom\Zoom to Page Level buttons or at least give me to ability to edit the menus and adapt them to my own usage.

  13. Missing Zoom

    Did you already notice that in Acrobat / Adobe Reader there is now no way to zoom the document, except with a mouse click on the corresponding buttons? Previously, as in Indesign and Photoshop, you could use Space + Alt + Control and Mouse Action to select areas or Zoom by Alt + mouse wheel.
    It would be nice if these possibilities are finally reactivated!

  14. Cannot Hide Tools Pane in Pro DC

    I cannot permanently close the tool pane. There is no "Open Tools Pane for Each Document" option to turn off in Edit >> Preferences >> Documents. When I manually close the tool pane with a document open, close the document and reopen it, the tool pane doesn't "stick" closed. It's open again. I am rarely, if ever, going to use anything in the tool pane. It's large and annoying. I don't want to see it every time I open a document. How do I get the tool pane to go away without having to manually close it with every document…

  17. Page/Bookmark Panes

    Option to keep page and bookmark navigation panes open. I use them everyday. Every single time I open/create a new pdf, I have to open panes. Haven't found a way to keep them open if it exists.

  18. Completely kill Acrobat DC - what a piece of junk.

    Acrobat DC makes you hunt through a menu and multiple clicks just to pull up each tool. And this is for each single PDF that is opened into the interface. Honestly this is just so bad. I want Acrobat to look exactly the same each time, with all my commenting and other tools lined up in menus on the right side. Every time, when I open any document, so that I can work.

  19. Keyboard shortcut for "Fit one full page to window" button

    There should be a keyboard shortcut for the "Fit one full page to window" button. I use this button every time I open a PDF (usually because the document settings are set to one-page continuous, my application settings are already set to one page).
