Full-function Surface Pen/Digital Stylus input and options
Basically, make it easier to use Surface Pens and digital stylus with Acrobat Pro. Look at Drawboard PDF, a $10 purchase with lifetime updates. It is 100x more feature-rich for using pen input/stylus input. Please add this into Acrobat so I don't have to switch between PDF programs constantly. Also, for goodness sake, fix the Erase feature. It literally takes a scrubbing to get rid of a stray line while using a pen in Acrobat. Make it like every other program in the world -- when I erase one part of a pen stroke, the whole pen stroke gets erased. Lacking this functionality makes your pen use a punishment. Please fix.

I emphatically concur with all of these. Maybe you can have this ready for the next Adobe MAX and make a lot of people happy!
It is 18 months since this was suggested. Please could someone provide an update on a likely timescale for resolution. Most of my colleagues use alternative software simply because this deficiency makes using Acrobat so frustrating.
Drawboard PDF costs £10 and is infinitely superior from a usability point of view on a tablet device. My job involves marking up large numbers of PDFs and having to switch between the pen tool and "move" tool is infuriating.
I have raised the same query with with your support line and on the forum and have now been directed here.
Agreed. Also, please differentiate between pen and fingers... i.e. when I have "pen" selected, then use my finger to try to scroll the document, please don't simply think I want to draw vertical lines on the page; instead, know the difference and toggle back to scroll when fingers are used.
