  1. Transparency grid / solid background toggle.

    There should be an easy to find, one click toggle type button that changes the background from white to the transparency grid.
    I often work with PDFs with some amount of transparency for one reason or another, and when showing people that are not familiar with the transparency grid it gets confusing, so if I could quickly toggle the background to white that would help out a lot. Actually, being able to toggle bleed lines and such on and off would be a big help too.

  4. Emailing completed webforms - can't do it - why bother?

    I created a nice form, loaded it to the web, tested it and when I clicked the "Submit" button - nada! Researched, tried other methods and when I finally called support, I was told that Acrobat DC can't/won't email completed pdf forms from the web! But maybe it would work if I could find someone who could code the javascript for me. So I found the javascript (I can do some coding) and this.maildoc() doesn't work.

    Why bother with this? It was a huge waste of time. There are on-line pdf form companies that charge less and claim to offer…

  8. Allow user to enlarge menu fonts

    Adobe should allow user to enlarge menu font sizes.

    I often want to know what page number I’m working in, but must lean into the screen to visualize the tiny number font listed in the menu bar.

  9. Preparing a document for Send & Sign

    I had a 42 page document that I needed to send out for initials & signatures. I carefully [for 30 minutes] prepared the document for sender + 2 signers, sent to be "prepared" and then clicked sign. It came back with me being the only signer in every place I had prepared. This despite checking and double checking the emails addresses were correct for signers 1 & 2. So I tried going in and editing the fields, which still did not resolve the problem. So I deleted the document and redid it...with the same result. I called support and spoke…

  12. Adobe Send & Track Add-in for Outlook stops email signature coming through when sending PDFs

    Installation of Adobe Add-in for Send & Track should not be automatic. It blocks the email signature of the user in Outlook 2013 from appearing when he/she wants to send a PDF by email directly from Adobe or other program which uses the Outlook API

  13. add the split option to the "tools to add" in Action Wizard.

    Please add the split option to the "tools to add" when creating a new Action Wizard action.

    This would allow for automated actions to be created where split top level bookmarks using bookmark names for file names utilized as part of a action, so it wouldn't be necessary to physically go through the setup process of: Organize Pages/Split/Split by: Top level bookmarks/Output Options/Use bookmark names for file names.

  14. Activate advanced features in OpenType fonts

    I bought a font that resembles real handwriting, and in order to activate the alternate characters (i.e. type 444 and each 4 looks slightly different), it requires advanced OpenType font settings. MS Word has this, but Adobe Acrobat does not. I believe Indesign does. It would be helpful to have this feature in Acrobat Pro.

  15. Show page numbers in advanced search results

    Problem: When doing an Advanced Search, in order to find out the page number of any given search result, you must hover the pointer over each individual search hit and wait for a popup of its page number to appear.

    Feature request: Show the page numbers on which those hits occur, and preferably in a column to the left of each search hit.

    Reason it's needed: This would save a tremendous amount of time for certain labor intensive tasks, for instance, manually indexing a book. To elaborate a bit: When manually indexing a large book (say, 500 pages), you regularly…

  16. Your customer support chat is IMPOSSIBLE to find, sends me in endless useless circles, and redirects me to useless forum articles having no

    Your customer support chat is IMPOSSIBLE to find, sends me in endless useless circles, and redirects me to useless forum articles having nothing to do with my situation. I actually had to trick your system about my situation to get to support chat. My company pays handsomely for this software, which includes chat support, and should not have to waste time as such. We have over 150 licenses with ya'll and you left us hung out to dry. This is not acceptable customer service. Correct immediately.

    Presenting pdfs with the need to black out the presentation on the beamer without having access to the beamers remote.

  18. After OCR, would like spell check feature to review OCR errors beyond correct recognized text feature

    After OCR, would like spell check feature to review OCR errors beyond correct recognized text feature. OCR has errors. Also, would like to have the option to tell OCR to search but selectively remove symbols from OCR responses. many documents have no "~" or "|" (shift backslash) also would like to eliminate the search for British pound symbol. The user would then selectively help the OCR to eliminate some responses.

  19. I'd like to be able to make a flip book (that turns the page like a magazine)

    Title says it really. It's simply that there a lot of 'make your own flip books' softwares out there, but they are not well designed and expensive, when this feels like it is a sensible add on to what one can already do with Adobe PDF pro. It's annoying to have to go elsewhere for pdf expertise, as I feel Adobe should be able to smash this themselves.

  20. Saving a file created from an Illustrator file overwrites that file instead of opening a new save dialogue.

    Steps to Reproduce:
    1. open acrobat DC
    2. create a PDF from file.
    3. save file
    4. check the original file to see if it has retained it's format and is properly openable.

    Environment:
    OS: Windows 10
    CPU: Intel i5 6600k @4.3GHz
    RAM: 16gb(2x8gb) G-skill Trident-z @3000MHz
    Motherboard: Gigabyte G1 gaming 5

    Acrobat Version: 2015.023.20070

    Expected result:
    Doing this should bring up a new save dialogue, or the save-as dialogue technically. Then once it is saved it should switch to that file.

    Observed Result:
    Doing this overwrote the original file w/o providing a save dialogue.

    I have attached the ruined…
