  1. Comment list takes too long to load

    Getting comment list to show in Acrobat DC takes way too much time. It's a drag. At least on Mac OS.

    • Feature request: Resize page feature

      I don't know how this happened, but I exported a print out of a web page that was sized at 8.5x11 as a PDF, and when I opened the PDF in Adobe DC, somehow the page size turned into 13.17x16.78, and now when I print the PDF, it cuts out everything on the page that is outside of the 8.5x11 paper size. I have been trying and trying to just resize the PDF to 8.5x11, but I can't find this feature anywhere - and I've really been looking hard! So if there was a way you could add a feature…

      • Freehand Highlighter

        I would like a transparent highlighter tool that will highlight anything and everything (not just recognizable text).

        • More user friendly arrangement of Quick Tools area

          I have just installed the latest "Acrobat Standard DC", and I'm disappointed to find that still the way in which you have to personalise the "Quick Tools" area is not user friendly.
          Apart from having a mandatory set of icons on the left (I can't see an easy way of removing them), the way you have to add / remove icons is annoying - right-clicking on the quick tools bar then selecting or deselecting an item to have the menu disappear so you have to right-click and find the item again and again...! Then not being able to change the…

          • Default Pages Panel "ON"

            Create a setting in Preferences that defaults to:
            View | Show | Navigation Panes | Page Thumbnails
            so that thumbnails ALWAYS appear in the navigation pane and are never hidden unless done manually.

              Hi Frank

              Please try the following :
              Go to Preferences → Documents and check the option “Restore last view settings when reopening documents”

              Please let me know if this works for you.

            • Why on earth did you completely change the menu/tool interface on Acrobat?

              I absolutely hate the new Acrobat interface. Why on earth was it changed? Why do software developers feel the need to move the gas pedal and steering wheel on each new version of a product? Instead of having easily accessible tools as with the last version of Acrobat, now I have to waste time hunting for them. Did you even consult with users before making this change? I'm definitely not buying any more Adobe products.

              • Extract Pages - WITHOUT thumbnail view!

                Trying to select which pages to extract by clicking on thumbnails is next to impossible. Whoever thought of this system has never tried to extract multiple non-consecutive pages from a large document - they all look the same when shrunk to 1 inch tall. Can we just extract by highlighting bookmarks?

                • Can't save a simple change without having to 'save as' and rename the document

                  If you go into a saved document and change something you cannot save it you have to save it as a completely separate document. i.e. I edit one line to be italicized and hit save and I get a pop up error that states, "The file may be read-only, or another user may have it open. Please save the document with a different name or in a different folder.

                  1) I am the only user
                  2) I created the .pdf document yesterday and did NOT make it read-only.

                    • Make Accessible PDF's accessible.

                      The process to make a PDF accessible is overly complicated and buggy. Usually while doing this, something will go wrong and the only way to fix it is to close the document, open it again, do the same process and hope it works. This process should be as simplistic as possible so everything can be accessible.

                        Hi Joel,
                        Thanks for bringing this issue to our notice. We discussed about this particular issue and we do not have any plans to work on it in immediate future. However, we’ll have it in our radar and might revisit at an appropriate time in future.

                        Thanks

                        1. Open a PDF document with Arabic content.

                        2. This PDF was generated from InDesign CC2017. Arabic fonts used is a good True Type and OpenType fonts. Macintosh 10.11.2 / Acrobat DC Build: 15.23.20056.213124

                        3. When exporting to MS Office format, we expect to have a decent conversion as we see with PDFs that has English content.

                        4. I opened resulted Word document in MS. Word on Windows, Text Edit on Mac, Apple Preview. The result varies, but generally Arabic text doesn't convert properly, most words scrambled and fragmented.

                        • Zoom in/out and percentage controls missing from toolbar

                          The Zoom In (+) and Zoom Out (-) buttons, and the zoom percentage text box disappeared from my toolbar, and I can't get them back. These controls are only accessible through the menus or the undocked floating panel. Re-docking the panel doesn't bring these controls with it. Right-click "Show Select & Zoom Tools" doesn't even list them.

                                Hi

                                I produce this pdf file, so that at a later date i can change the date. I've selected the edit tool in adobe pro and when i start to type in the date i want, the text moves from the bottom of the page to half way up the page. (as you will see from the pdf file attached)

                                I am doing this on a windows 7 machine.

                                On the other pages i dont have a problem. The pages of pdf are set up the same way, so I'm unclear as to what the problem is with this page.

                                  Where did the zoom tools go? They used to be visible in the main tool bar... I mean, I get there are other ways to zoom in and out of my pdf, but why remove such a common functionality? Please bring them back.

                                    Hi,

                                    Thanks for Reaching out to us for your concerns.
                                    We have not removed the zoom tools from the main toolbar and those are already there.

                                    I assume you might have undocked the Toolbar so you may be getting a black floating window over the document area which would be having the zoom tools.

                                    I would request you to kindly Dock it back to the Main toolbar by clicking the rightmost icon from that floating window.

                                    Also, if this is not the case i would request you to kindly do a right click on your main toolbar and select “Reset Toolbar” from the context menu. (This way your main toolbar will get back to the default state which would anyways be having the Zoom tools.

                                    Let me know if this fixes your concern

                                    Thanks
                                    Ayush Jain

                                  • Printing locally from Adobe Acrobat Pro DC has never worked despite multiple "fixes"

                                    I have CC full suite and from the day I had to install Adobe Acrobat Pro DC I have been unable to print locally from any open PDF. I have tried multiple fixes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times. I've updated the printer drivers and had my IT support look at it. And now that this program is embedded in everything, I can't event go back to Acrobat XI. If I'm lucky I can export the PDF as an image or word document and print from there, but if I'm looking at document that's large that is just simply…

                                      HI Ginger,

                                      Please provide the Acrobat / Reader version installed on your system. Also provide a sample PDF document on which you have observed this issue.

                                      Thanks
                                      Ritesh

                                      The option to clear all the fields on a form has been removed. I have a form that I re-use for various jobs, and now I must manually clear all of the fields in the form in order to fill it out afresh. The deletion of this feature irritates me mightily.

                                        Ctrl Alt T back please (cropping one page or all pages)

                                        I'm not sure why you took it out, or why you hid it, but I would really like it back! I use it monthly if not weekly for work and it is WAY easier than the new version. Maybe you thought we didn't use it, but we do :-)
                                        I have Acrobat 11, the full version. Please bring it back.

                                        thank you
