      We already considered this request. We will update you once the team prioritise it and implement it.

      Thanks.

    • PLEASE Don't make the user go through a menu to check off a comment! You DOUBLE the time it takes to go through comments.

      PLEASE ELIMINATE the need to go through a dropdown menu just to check off a commnet.

      IT WAS FINE to have a checkbox. It took HALF THE TIME.

          • Comments checkbox

            Please put back the checkbox for comment completion. With hundreds of edits to documents it will be very time consuming to have to go through two extra steps for every single comment to mark these boxes. This is going to seriously slow down our work.

            • Commenting checkboxes

              Hi,

              I am a desktop publisher and we work with corrections, this can be a lot of them. in the previous version we could click the checkbox when a correction was done. Now we have to click twice to mark a comment as done. This is not efficient for us, since now it takes twice as long. Please give us the previous option back. Time is money..

              • Editing or creating new stamps involves too many steps

                I'm required to fill in a lot of forms with my signature and the date. And since the date always changes, I edit my signature image in PSD and then bring it in to Acrobat and make (or edit) a stamp. But in Acrobat the process of editing a stamp with a new image is grueling! ... 10 steps! (see attached).

                  • Why clicking twice for checkboxes?!

                    In the previous version you can easly click on the checkbox, because it was in the same row (view) as the comment. Now you have to click twice to click the checkbox. Please make it as it was!

                        • Support Installations and Upgrades on macOS Case-Sensitive Volumes

                          This request is being submitted at the suggestion of Adobe Support which was unable to provide effective support for Case Nº 0189220198. Of the 252 applications currently installed on our macOS Sierra system, only Acrobat Pro XI cannot be reinstalled or upgraded because the storage volumes are formatted as case-sensitive. The previously case-insensitive system volume on which Acrobat Pro XI version 11.0.20 had previously been installed was converted to a case-sensitive format. This was done by imaging the volume as a DMG file using Disk Utility, and then after reformatting as case-sensitive, the volume was restored using the ditto command…

                          • 2 steps to add check to comments - Build: 19.8.20071.303822

                            In previous versions of Acrobat I was able to Check a comment (typically once I had made an edit to my InDesign doc). By setting the filter to show unchecked comments only I was systematically able to go through a set of clients edits. In the new version of Acrobat you have removed the ability to just click to check a comment. I now have to open a drop down menu and select it. This is really annoying when you have a large document with over 100 comments (as I regularly do).

                            Please return the simple check box to the…

                              • Tick box in comments disappeared after last update

                                I always used the tick box while reviewing, using a filter so that comments I processed also disappeared. It was an easy and intuitive way of editing the source text with the help of the comments in the PDF. After the last update, the tick box is gone and now hidden. You have to click the dots in the top right corner of the comment, then select 'Set status' and then click the status. That's THREE clicks instead of one. NOT user friendly, NOT intuitive, NO improvement. Please give me back my tick box!

                                    Hi,

                                    I have Adobe Acrobat Reader Pro - Build: 18.11.20040.280397, operating on MACOS High Sierra 10.13.4, with a MFC Brother printer.

                                    all of a sudden I can't print any files unless I go into advanced settings in the print dialogue box and change to print as image?

                                    I have updated my mac, my printer and adobe acrobat with no success. I have attached a screenshot of the error msg in my printer queue.

                                      Hi Bert,

                                      Could you check if the following steps works for you?
                                      1. Open Print dialog
                                      2. Click on “Advance” button
                                      3. Select “Postscript Options”
