  1. Precise placement of objects in Prepare Form and Edit Form

    I would like to see a "transform" capability similar to InDesign, with a panel or set of boxes in which the actual pixel X & Y coordinates, as well as the dimensions of an object, can be precisely set. Currently, the resolution on this type of placement appears to be set at 2 points, and I would like to be able to fine-tune that to pixels or 10,000ths of an inch as I can in InDesign. That's the basic idea, but read on for rationale.
    I work mainly in InDesign to create pdf forms that I then take into Acrobat…

    • Create Expandable Text Field Forms

      Adobe Acrobat Pro needs to have the ability to create expandable text field forms that allow the text box to expand when the user types similar to what you can do with Livecycle.

      This is a feature that has been requested a lot online. Currently Acrobat Pro only allows multi-line text field forms with a scroll bar, but you cannot create an expanding text field form that increases in the height of the text field to accomodate more text.

      The functionality to create this even in Livecycle is too clunky and complicated to use.

        • Add ability to export Gmail email via the Adobe Chrome Extension

          We want the ability to export a number of Gmail emails or a Gmail Label to a PDF Portfolio like we used to do with Outlook. We now only use Gmail with Chrome and would like to continue using the export to PDF Portfolio functionality.

          • Implement the ability to export Gmail email using the Adobe Chrome Extension

            We want to be able to export a select group of Gmail emails or an entire Gmail Label to a PDF Portfolio similar to how we could with Outlook. We no longer use Outlook and have switched to Gmail with Chrome. The ability to once again export to a PDF Portfolio is a functionality we would like to continue to have.

              Hi

              Thanks for your feature request.
              Unfortunately, we are unable to take your feature request right now giving other high priority issues. We might consider it for future releases.

              Thanks

            • allow printing of all data in text box even if it exceeds the amount visible on the display.

              there needs to be a way to print all of the text in a text box without using auto font size. in auto font size the font shrinks as more text is added. this is not readable. all of the text should print even if it is more than is visible in the text box on the display.

              • highlighter tool

                1) need a way to click highlight over and over w/o having to reselect the highlighter tool

                • Format Painter

                  It would be very helpful if Acrobat Pro were to have a format painter feature like Microsoft's. As it is, one has to go through all the form fields and change them manually one at a time after Auto doesn't deliver what is desired.

                  • Editable form fields should keep font properties they were exported with

                    When you export an interactive PDF from InDesign, form fields that define a font and size do not carry over to the actual PDF and have to be redefined in Acrobat Pro.

                    • If "multiple tabs in one window" option is available in Acrobat Reader then it should be available in the Pro DC classic.

                      I mean come on... If the Acrobat Reader the free version has the multiple tabbed pdf's in one window then why doesn't the Acrobat Pro DC have it? It's frustrating.

                      I have the classic version 2015.006.30280, which is licensed and bought. Just doesn't make sense to not have the option.

                        Hi,

                        If you wish to use Multitab feature in acrobat , Classic 2017 support multitab feature.

                        Let me know for further concerns here.

                        Thanks,

                        Ability to undock the comments list and view it horizontally.

                        There are cases where the comments can be really long, and a vertically orientated list makes it really difficult to read, not to mention the comment may even take up the entire comments pane. Sharing the same screen space between bookmarks, the actual content, and the comments list makes everything less readable. Users should have the option to undock the list and view it anyway they like.

                        • Use the Drawing Tools to highlight objects

                          I would like the addition of a checkmark within the drawings tool. I find the new highlighter blob tool kind of clunky, and I'd much prefer to use the drawing markup tools when I need to highlight objects. But right now, with the drawing markup tool I have to reduce the opacity, in order to get the object below to show through. I'd like the Drawing Markup Tools to actually be able to highlight the objects, using the highlight blending mode as the Highlighter tool does.

                          Please add a checkmark at the top of the color picker that for "Highlight"

                          • Extract fonts from PDF files

                            Sometimes PDF files contain fonts that is not currently installed, so I have to use another font which doesn't look nice. It is a good idea that Adobe Acrobat can extract those fonts.

                              For embedded fonts, user have the rights to view the font but not use them for editing. Extracting the fonts give access to use them for editing as well. Therefore, for legal reasons, Adobe cannot extract the fonts. You must have purchased a font and have it installed on your system to use it.

                              Should use google drive and allow READ ALOUD mode. Many ebook readers are allowing that feature. eg ereader prestigio

                                When creating a PDF Form from an existing document there should be a way to select a field and change the field type. Ex. change a text field into a dropdown list field

                                  • Remove the annoying "Learn More" lower right button

                                    I must click the blue "Learn More' button on Acrobat's lower right hand corner at least 20x a day!!!!!! I don't ever need to use this, but always need to access the sidebar panel of tools, for which I'm constantly dragging at that bottom right corner to open the window wider, etc. - which auto launches Adobe's website — please for the love of sanity — remove this annoying button that links me to Adobe's website so I can "Learn about my CC plan." If I want to learn about it, I'll log into my account.

                                    • Per-document Highlight Form Field setting

                                      Highlight Form Field function draws over the form field so instead of a nice button I get an ugly blue/red rectangle that is acting buggily anyway. It makes the document useless and I have to find a different solution than pdf questionnaire. Forcing people to switch it in some advanced menu is out of question. This feature should be on per-document basis with possible override in Acrobat preferences where you specifically state that you want to override document settings.

                                      • Emailing a PDF from Acrobat via Outlook API issue

                                        When emailing a PDF from Acrobat via Outlook API, the default Outlook Signature is missing from the New Email Window. If possible, can this be corrected?

                                        • setting to open sidebar with comments by default

                                          Please create a preferences setting so that the commenting sidebar opens by default when opening a document. That's what I use 99% of the time, and it's irritating to have to open that up every single time.
