  1. Can't select all instances of an Advanced Search (ctrl+shift+F).

    When doing an advanced search (ctrl+shift+F), you used to be able to search for a string (which it still does) and select all of those instances in the PDF (no longer highlights every instance; need to do one-by-one). This was a quick & useful feature for highlighting all instances of a certain text string in a PDF drawing.

  2. Startup window should open at Startup AND when all PDFs are closed

    It's good for those of us who utilize Document Cloud and Creative Cloud to have the startup window with access to these files. However, if you close all of the PDFs you have open, this window is no where to be found unless you quit and restart the application (unless it's hiding somewhere in a menu, but why would that be?).

  3. Preference option to minimize RH Tools pane on file open in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

    In a preferences option such that the Tools pane (on right hand sight of document window) will or will not display on PDF file open.

    his will save time for what I anticipate is a large percentage of users that open PDF documents to read / comment without necessarily using the tools pane on RH side of the window.

  4. Wider Outlook Portfolio Creation Tools

    The current Adobe plugin for Outlook 2016 works very well when creating portfolios from a group of emails. I'm able to add as many emails as I want to a single portfolio and the ability to append them when more emails come in is excellent. But these portfolios can only be added to from Outlook. It is important that I am able to add files to these Outlook portfolios without having to email them to myself first.

    Hi

    Thanks for your request. But this is as designed behavior because non-email PDF files won’t have fields like To:, From:, etc. which will create inconsistency in the PDF Portfolio.
    So the workaround would be to email those files and convert/append to portfolios.

    Thanks

  5. Selectively Flatten Watermarks

    When adding a watermark to a .pdf file in Acrobat 10, such as "For Draft Review", it would be nice to prevent another Acrobat user from removing the watermark while retaining the ability to still have operable links, such as the Table of Contents or figure references.

  6. Please make it possible to 1.) import a word doc with images that remain at 300 dpi 2.) check the dpi of images in a PDF

    Just to expand the thought above. Many people are online searching for ways to do this. I was told in an Adobe chat that it was not possible. You all are brilliant -- can't you make it possible?

  7. Bug - Acrobat Pro X for Windows crashes and stops working every few weeks

    Once every few weeks Acrobat Pro X, which I install as part of CS6 for Windows, crashes and stops working. It crashes when I try to open random files. After that it stops working and I need to reinstall it. It happened on two different computers, one running Windows 7 and one Windows 10.

  8. signature appearance

    Since last update of Adobe Acrobat Std/Pro, our engineers are not able to sign drawings cause now a predifined rectangle appears which is way too large. People have to sign at the right side of the drawings (DIN A0) with a very small rectangle. You have now to place the new predefined rectangle where top left corner have to fit with top left corner of drawing field. Therefor, you have to zoom out the document to be able to place the rectangle. That way, it's hard to see if you sign the right field at the drawing. Signing hundreds of…

  10. eliminate DC function from DC.

    remove the DC function from acrobat DC so users cannot access cloud files. this is a grave security risk. the feature has to an option at installation time so a user cannot switch it on.

  11. Toolbar for Highlights Color

    Please make a toolbar or something that allows for a one touch colour change for Highlighting.
    Its is time consuming to have to go into properties and set as default everytime i decide to change highlight colour.
    As a student I need to be able to have a variety of colours available for highlighting in order to have organized notetaking

  12. Please make it easier to change fonts and colours of text+highlights

    On the Apple version of adobe: it is very tedious and takes time+ lots of clicking to change the colour of highlights. and its even HARDER to change the fonts, colours of text in the textbox option.

    As a student who primarily notetakes on PDF its really a setbck when taking lecture notes for a high intensity lecture.

  15. cannot unsecure a protected pdf


    1. Open a protected document with the correct password.

    2. Try to unsecure the document in "Document Properties" -> "Security", choose "no security"

    3. A pop-up asking password shows up, Enter the same correct password as used to open the document.

    4. "The password is incorrect". Cannot unsecure the document.

  16. Keep multiple pencil marks as individual items (don't automatically group)

    Individual, multiple pencil marks that are created one after another, are automatically grouped into one comment, making it impossible to go back and delete just one of the marks. When I made 20 marks on a page and need to move or delete one, I need to delete them all and start from scratch, wasting so much time. Give the option to ungroup the marks or to group them, if desired.

  17. Application is ridiculously large

    Why is Adobe Acrobat so stupidly, ridiculously large? It takes 6 GB on my Windows 7 PC dwarfing massively complex heavyweight apps like After Effects (2GB) Maya (400MB) and Cinema 4D (400MB). It looks like very sloppy programming.
