  1. PLEASE Don't make the user go through a menu to check off a comment! You DOUBLE the time it takes to go through comments.

    PLEASE ELIMINATE the need to go through a dropdown menu just to check off a commnet.

    IT WAS FINE to have a checkbox. It took HALF THE TIME.

    • 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.

      • Comment UI was better in former version

        Each comment in the column on the right hast to be opened to be checked with done (check mark). But then the answer-field is opening and the answering field of the former comment will be closed. When the checkmark is not set, the comment is always shifting a bit up. That makes a work with 500 corrections really bumpy/uneasy.
        The size of each comment is also too big. In the former version there were 17 comments on one screen, now there are just 9 comments!
        Make one comment without opening and smaller and more clearly arranged without moving!!

              • Please restore ability to copy and paste comment shapes (arrow, line, rectangle, oval) from one PDF to another

                Since updating to Acrobat Pro DC (version 2017.012.20098), I cannot individually copy arrow, line, rectangle, or oval shapes (with or without accompanying comments) from one PDF and paste them into another PDF. As an editor, I use these tools all day to mark corrections and I regularly have the need to carry over unaddressed/outstanding edits to the next version of the project. Without the ability to simply copy and paste, I have to redo a lot of work—losing efficiency and opening up room for error. Please restore this fundamental function!

                • Please provide a Preference to condense the Comments panel

                  I often deal with PDFs with hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of edits. The Comments panel in Acrobat DC includes way too much blank space, including a title line ("Strikethrough Text", "Highlighted Text", etc.) and needlessly provides a default "Type your reply..." area for every comment. This isn't Facebook (meaning, replies aren't always necessary). Please provide preferences that allow comments to appear in more compact form, as they did with Acrobat X or Acrobat 11.

                    • Add option to make comment pane open automatically if there are comments

                      Commenting should be listed as one of the options under Document Properties > Initial View. I find that new many people have a hard time finding the comments, because the right hand pane is hidden and they don't know to click on that tiny little right-pointing arrow. Pleas add the option for the comment pane to be open automatically, just as we can already do with the bookmarks panel.

                      • Print all comments on one page

                        I have a ten page pdf. this document has about a dozen comments scattered on six different pages. In Acrobat Pro DC, there is no way to get all the comments to print out to one page (or more for a lot of comments), with each comment including the document page number of the comment. The default options will print the comments page by page, which seems a waste. In the example sited Acrobat would print out six pages to show what amounts to one-half a page of text.

                        • HIghlighting Text

                          For the highlight function, there should be the ability to change colors easily. Right now the process is cumbersome and time-consuming. When I have to be able to access my highlighted test for citations, it would be wonderful to be able to export to word documents with a click.

                          • Acrobat Pro DC: Want "comment" view to open when I open a PDF.

                            Please provide a preference so the "Comment" view opens whenever I open a document in Acrobat Pro DC (for Windows).
                            This was a valuable feature on previous Acrobat versions and was dropped in Acrobat Pro DC.

                                Please put back the checkbox for comment completion. With hundreds of edits to documents it will be very time consuming to have to go through two extra steps for every single comment to mark these boxes. This is going to seriously slow down our work.

                                  Hi,

                                  I am a desktop publisher and we work with corrections, this can be a lot of them. in the previous version we could click the checkbox when a correction was done. Now we have to click twice to mark a comment as done. This is not efficient for us, since now it takes twice as long. Please give us the previous option back. Time is money..

                                  • Editing or creating new stamps involves too many steps

                                    I'm required to fill in a lot of forms with my signature and the date. And since the date always changes, I edit my signature image in PSD and then bring it in to Acrobat and make (or edit) a stamp. But in Acrobat the process of editing a stamp with a new image is grueling! ... 10 steps! (see attached).

                                      • highlighter tool

                                        1) need a way to click highlight over and over w/o having to reselect the highlighter tool
                                        2) need a way to go from a selected tool (stamp, highlighter, etc) to hand or select tool quickly (example: dbl right click mouse)
