  1. 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

        • Make Tools easier to access

          In the new version od Adobe Acrobat (Pro DC) I can now longer show the highlight tool and other tools on the top toolbar - I need to click a few times to show the Comment tools. This wastes a lot of time.

          • revert "Save As" dialogue

            Acrobat DC's Save As dialogue is horrible. Why does this product need to differentiate from a typical Save As--even from the rest of Adobe's products? I want to immediately be able to choose Desktop or Documents or whatever, and not have to click an additional "Choose a Different Folder..." button, just because my save location does not appear in the recent short list.

            • Tools

              1. You should be able to "pin" tool bars of your choosing and have them automatically be in your workspace when you open a pdf.

              This use to work and now does not. It is extremely frustrating.

              2. There are way too many clicks involved to open up the navigation pane. I should not have to memorize shortcuts to do such a simple task.

              • Cannot fix resolution problem because the Apply button isn't visible, due to resolution problem

                The banner (top of the frame) is too large, as is the Find box when you ctrl+F. When you try to fix this in the properties area, this area is also too large. I am assuming this is making an apply button run off of the visible area of the window. When i try to fix the resolution (from Auto-Detect, which I'm assuming is also part of the problem) to 100% it doesn't fix it when I close the window (which is why I assume there is an "apply" button that I cannot see or use - See Bottom of…

                • Enable a way to have a drop down menu blank (no items selected) until clicked

                  Please enable a way to have the drop down menus on PDF forms blank until clicked on. If the item list has three or less items, you can click the blank space (Under dropdown properties > options > item list) but if there are four or more list items, one of them is always selected and shows on the drop down list (not blank.)

                    • Display navigation pane by default

                      We still desperately need to be able to show the navigation bar by default. I understand that certain features of it may not be available due to settings in the PDF. I use this program to view 99% of the time and it's a real hassle clicking around every time, to show the thumbnails.

                      Every rudimentary viewer allows thumbnails to be shown by default and I believe previous versions of Acrobat did as well.

                      Please allow this navigation pane and the selected tab to be sticky.

                                I have been using adobe acrobat pro 9 for over 10 years, and recently I have to switch over to acrobat DC, and find it bizarre.
                                1. First, the user interface has been completely redesign, not allowing one to switch back to the previous UI.
                                2. Also, I find the number of key strokes needed to do a simple task, has greatly increase. I do a lot of cut-and-paste with my old acrobat, and it was convenient. With the new DC, after finally figure out how to do it, it involves a lot more key strokes. A regression!
                                3. The…

                                    • trial version despite creative cloud subscription

                                      I have a creative cloud subscription but all my apps changed to "start 7-day trial" or "buy now". Even a complete uninstall of all apps and creative cloud app followed by a fresh install did not solve the problem. Also my Adobe Acrobat X has been uninstalled without my approval.

                                      • Why use a persons birthdate for account verification!

                                        Quit asking for a person's birthdate for account verification. This is not necessary and only places the customer at more risk. You do not need this specific information to validate eligibility.

                                        • Page/Bookmark Panes

                                          Option to keep page and bookmark navigation panes open. I use them everyday. Every single time I open/create a new pdf, I have to open panes. Haven't found a way to keep them open if it exists.
