  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.

    • Freehand Highlighter

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

          • 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.

                            • 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).

                                • 2 steps to add check to comments - Build: 19.8.20071.303822

                                  In previous versions of Acrobat I was able to Check a comment (typically once I had made an edit to my InDesign doc). By setting the filter to show unchecked comments only I was systematically able to go through a set of clients edits. In the new version of Acrobat you have removed the ability to just click to check a comment. I now have to open a drop down menu and select it. This is really annoying when you have a large document with over 100 comments (as I regularly do).

                                  • 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!

                                      The comments pane takes up WAY too much space. I would like the ability to customize what I see there.

                                      Currently in the Comments pane, it display the:

                                      -Author Name
                                      -Type of Comment
                                      -Text within the pop-up note

                                      Sometimes all of this information is useful, but most of the time, I don't need to see all that! It is a waste of screen space. I would like the ability to show to only those options which I need. In this case, I just want to see what is in the pop-up note, nothing more.

                                      We can customize…

                                      • Make Comments Toolbar Open Automatically/By Default

                                        I would LOVE it if you folks could make the Comments Tool auto-open and/or by default somehow. I open lots and lots of pages every day and it would be really wonderful if the Comments just opened every time I opened a new doc.

                                        • Copy text out of comment

                                          1 Copyedits made in a comment format are nearly impossible to copy and paste

                                          4 Expected result: copying text would result in it being copied to the clipboard.
                                          5. Observed result: nothing is copied. Has been the case since the initial release…
