  1. Edit default split pages number or set it permanently to 1

    We often need to split a document into a single file per page. We almost NEVER split a document by every two pages.

    Having to edit this number each time is redundant. I would like the option to either edit the default "split by" setting (and additionally the output settings) or alternatively have the default be 1 page.

  3. Save As Location should be Last saved location

    The "Save As" function defaulted to "My Documents" the first time it was used after a new installation. Subsequent uses of "Save As" should ve defaulted to the location last used rather to temporary location as it happens currently

  4. Add an option to set the default bookmark properties when combining PDF files.

    When combining multiple PDF files into a single document with bookmarks, I want to be able to set the default bookmark properties. For example, I may want all bookmarks to include the ACTION: Go to a page view, and ZOOM LEVEL: Fit Page. Currently, I have to change the properties of each bookmark separately.

    Hi,

    We are delighted to share with you that Acrobat and Reader Desktop release for DC Continuous (20.012.20041) is Live now and this takes care of this Feature Request

    For more Info refer here : https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/whats-new.html

    The Set Default Bookmark Zoom Level menu item is now added to the PDF bookmark options. While creating a new bookmark, you can easily use this option to set the default zoom level. By default, the Inherit Zoom option is selected.

    Also, Acrobat now provides an option in the bookmark properties to retain the destination page number when you adjust the zoom level of multiple bookmarks.

    Please update your Acrobat (It should Auto update or you should do Help → Check for updates) and let us know your Feedback.

    Thanks

  5. Please make Acrobat the same way it was before. I want the tools bar to be on the right side and not on the top as a tab, this is annoying.

    It is very annoying to change the layout of the interface when users are used to a certain layout for years. Please put the tools in the side bar instead of a tab. This wastes time to go to another screen and then after clicking on the tool, it opens up.

  7. Acrobat/Reader should support dynamic DPI scaling.

    We work on multiple monitor in our office. Our monitors have different scaling factor settings. When we drag Acrobat window from one display device to another it doesn't scale as per the new scaling factor.

  8. Acrobat pro 2017 can`t re-arrange sort order after creating Portfolio

    when adding another file it goes to the end . In older versions of Acrobat Pro you could sort & re-arrange Portfolio files
    tried that workaround where you create a new column in view /portfolio details & edit the values to get the files in the proper order sequence .. bit that is a bit of a kludge & really doesn`t affect the printing order of individual Portfolio files or default view when opening

    version 2017.011.30065 Win 7 32 bit & win 10 64 bit

  10. Enable a keyboard shortcut to add a checkmark to a comment

    When I get a PDF back from a proofreader, I have to review hundreds of comments. The only way to add a checkmark to a comment is by using the mouse. This gets very tedious. Please add a shortcut that adds a checkmark to a selected comment.

  12. Turning Off Tab view breaks puggin Tools

    Tabbed View by default isn't suitable as documents are often compared visually & make better use of multiple screen space. However Turning Off Tabbed view now breaks (hides) 3rd Party Plugin tools (namely Enfocus Pitstop Pro).
    Because a restart is required to re-enable Tabbed viewing, that causes loss of changes, or having to save/discard multiple changes potentially on multiple documents.
    & Because I'm here.... NOT A SINGLE Feature added to Acrobat DC has been an improvement.

    Hi

    You can now drag and drop files to re-arrange them in a portfolio. You can also create a folder and add files in it via drag & drop in the latest version of Acrobat DC.
    I will close this case. Please reopen another thread if you feel you issue still hasn’t been addressed.

    Thanks

  15. Set Default Link Actions (zoom especially)

    I make ADA Accessible documents. Inherit Zoom is a necessary thing.

    When I need to combine multiple pdf files into one document I often create a narrative that includes links to other pages of that document. I back up those links with bookmarks.

    While it's quite easy to change all of the bookmark actions at once to Inherit Zoom, it's not so easy to change the links.

    Currently each link action must be edited individually. And each Zoom is set to custom. There is considerable time taken to adjust each one, especially when I have 50 to 200 links in…

  16. Optional setting to default to document title in Initial View

    Currently, even though an MS Word document may have a Title property, when the PDF is created the Acrobat default initial view is to the document file name rather than the PDF's title properties. Since this doesn't pass the accessibility check it requires that the setting be changed on each PDF. I would like to see it either default to the Title property, or provide the option in the PDF Maker plug-in for MS Word.

    Hi

    This feature has now been enabled in Acrobat Pro DC with the October update but it is by default turned Off.
    In order to enable it, you would need to create a Reg_Dword “4255031” and set it to 1 at the following location:

    \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Adobe\Adobe Acrobat\DC\FeatureState

    Please note: This will work for only PDFs from Word/Excel which have been created using Acrobat post setting this registry and won’t work for older PDFs.

    Thanks

  18. Be able to show Rulers & Guides by default

    It would be useful in Preferences to turn on Show Rulers & Guides by Default. At present you have to go to "View / Show/hide / Rulers & Grids" for every new PDF that you open.

    I am using latest version of Adobe Acrobat DC on Windows 7 64 bit. Everything is by default like I made the only changes at the provided video.

    The problem is when I highlight any next in the pdf, usually in the previous version of Acrobat the icons for Cut or Copy are going to be "active"(dark grey), when some text is selected and not active icons(white gray), when there is no selection. In the latest version of Acrobat this icons are white gray and not active when the text is selected. For me there is obvious problem between the…
