  1. Customize individual tool selections in toolbar

    Allow users to customize the toolbar- add some (not all) drawing markup tools, comment tools, editing tools, highlight tools, without having to add an entire group. There are tools in a group that I never use, but I must select a group and wait for it to load, rather than seeing all my frequent tools at one time.

  2. Emailing PDF Files

    I do not like the fact that I cannot just simply send a PDF as an email attachment any longer with the new upgrade 10-3-18.

    Having to go through all the steps of going the the share process is very inconvenient when you have to send hundreds of different PDF through the course of the day.

  3. why is it so hard to save a document to my computer?

    I don't want to save the document in Word, I just want to save the PDF in "my documents" on my computer. Is there no way to do this? Or if there is what is the magic spell I have to put on Adobe to do that. Cannot access the Adobe Cloud- whatever that is- to attach documents.

    For saving your document on your computer you can follow the below steps.
    1) Go to file menu and click on save as
    2) On the subsequent screen, select ‘Choose a different folder’ button
    3) You’ll be able to browse your local desktop folder structure after this
    4) Save your pdf to the desired location.

  4. Save form option when emailing

    When taking a form and editing it or whatever you want and then you go to email it I shouldnt be forced to save the form before emailing it. Me personally I dont need a copy of the form, I just want to email it like you used to be able to do on the old version before the update.

  6. Bring back exploded view options

    Can we also bring back the separate view styles (fit to width, fit a page, etc) instead of burying them in a submenu as well? Hiding useful navigation is not good UI/UX.

  7. Why use a persons birthdate for account verification!

    Quit asking for a person's birthdate for account verification. This is not necessary and only places the customer at more risk. You do not need this specific information to validate eligibility.

  8. Make Acrobat great again, for prepress.

    New UI changes continue to make Acrobat more complicated to use for PDF workflow when doing prepress.
    Why can't I turn off the Home window?

  9. No extract button

    I download a large pdf document every day. This must be broken up into smaller documents, but there is NO EXTRACT BUTTON! I have to open the "Page Thumbnails" and highlight what I want to extract, then right click, hit "extract" and go from there. It takes so much longer!

    Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.
    You can use the extract button by following below mentioned steps:
    1) Open a pdf
    2)Click on Organize pages
    3) Now click on extract
    4)Now you can select the pages you want to extract
    5) Also you have the option to ‘Extract pages as separate files’

    Hope this helps you.

  10. Open multiple files from Recent list at the same time

    When opening Adobe Acrobat Standard DC, it shows you a list of Recent Files that you have used; however, you can only open one of these files at a time. Similar to the ability to select multiples files in other programs of holding the Control key to select more than one file or holding the Shift key to select a range of files, it would be useful (and a standard Windows function) to be able to select multiple files and open them all at the same time. If reviewing the files in Windows Explorer, you can open multiple files at…

  11. Reduced Size PDF

    Save as Other>Reduced Size PDF in DC - Adobe's prior versions of Acrobat reduced the file size much much more. DC Reduced Sized files are still too huge! It's not true they can't be reduced more in size because outside apps are able to do this without any difference in readability for basic use.

    I would request you to use the “Optimize Scanned Pages” feature of Optimize PDF application. Please follow the below steps :

    1. Open your PDF file and go to Optimize PDF application.
    2. Choose the “Optimize Scanned Pages” option. Press “OK” on the next dialog with default settings.

    Regards,

  12. Acrobat file save is blank

    I'm using Adobe Acrobat CC 2018 on an iMac using macOS High Sierra version 10.13.2. When I edit or create a pdf file, the save or save as commands bring up a BLANK field instead of the traditional save or save as field. I can't save any files. The only way to get the edited file or binder is to email it to myself. Is this something I can fix or is it a bug on CC 2018?

  13. Give an option for the size a PDF opens.

    Revise so saved PDF files opens 100% instead of huge views like 137% Maybe there could be a option in settings for this feature.

  14. Want to selectively delete individual lines from the RECENT LIST without deleting the actual files from my HD or Document Cloud.

    Want to selectively delete individual lines from the RECENT LIST without deleting the actual files from my HD or Document Cloud. As it stands now the Recent List gets so long as to be a nuisance. At least allow clearing items after a certain period of time.

    Please try the following steps after updating your Acrobat to the latest version:
    1. On the recent file list, Select the individual files using the check mark on the left.
    2. After the selection you’ll see the option “remove from recent” on the right, select the same.

  15. feat req: Zoom previous

    Zoom previous is a shorthand reference for go back to the previous view. It is an existing feature in numerous graphically intense systems like CAD, MCAD, ECAD.

    It is a convenient and efficient way to restore the view. Reasons to use it are: 1. correct a zoom error or 2. zoom in to examine something closely and zoom back out to an overview

  16. Add option to keep documents from moving/resizing Acrobat window

    Some PDF documents seem to contain meta data content that's causing Adobe Acrobat DC and Adobe Acrobat Reader to move/resize their program window when such document is opened.

    This behaviour is rather annoying and it may lead to accessibility issues.

    Please, either stop Acrobat/Reader from moving/resizing their program window when opening a document containing such meta data information, or provide an accessibility option in Preferences to optionally have Acrobat ignore that meta data information.

    Hi,
    The issue faced by you is due to the setting of the document set by the user. Please see the following setting in the document :
    1. Open Document→File → Properties → Initial View Tab → uncheck Center Window on screen

    Please make sure the setting is not checked in your document to avoid the issue.

    Thanks
    Rachit

  17. Permanent Crop

    Permanent crop tool that actually removes cropped content. Masking content does not work for PDFs that need to be later uploaded online. It botches thumbnail creation and causes files to be unnecessarily large.

  19. Adobe Digital Edition

    This is not about Adobe Reader it is about Adobe Digital Edition. As there is no entry for ADE I chose the first one on the list and hope that a category for the ADE is created.

    The problem is that Adobe Digital Edition is a Digital Reader and that you can't actually read your books through loss of access to the file or it appears that way. I assumed it was this as I cannot access your file either so assumed there would be nothing wrong with that file. I am using it through my council library membership which…
