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!

I agree. Things were simple before when I could tick a box. Now I cannot even find the tick in the system to tick the box. Please fix this or I am out of this subscription back to old 2017 system.

This appears to have been marked as 'Planned' in October 2018.
When will it make it to a release? It's driving me absolutely crazy. How could this have been missed during UX testing? Are you user testing with professional designers who work on real long documents?

In the latest update of Acrobat DC, we have modernize the commenting experience and at the same time, made it very clean and intuitive to use. As part of that, the checkbox is moved to the right click menu of the comment.
Open comment>Right Click>Add Checkmark
Please also note that both the sort and filter options are available for the check mark.
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused and will consider adding the check mark by default for future updates of Acrobat DC.
However there is one workaround to make the checkbox appear in one step by using the keyboard shortcut SHIFT + K .

Bluebeam Revu has the comment checkbox easily accessible. I've switched to Revu for all my PDF commenting needs.
