  1. Making it possible to change thickness of underlining in Acrobat Reader DC under Windows

    Unfortunately, I cannot change the thickness of my added underlined or strike-through. The symbol for different thickness in the toolbar is greyed out.
    I also would appreciate two different symbols for underlining; one for straight lines, the other for squiggly lines.
    I used FoxitReader before and must say that the way to place comments seems to me better solved there. Maybe something similar could be added in Adobe Acrobat Reader?

  2. End a Shared Review, writer still has access to comments or can save them offline

    I want the ability to end a "Shared Review" (to prevent new comments from coming in) yet still have access to the comments after I've closed a review to additional comments.

    Currently, I have to leave Shared Reviews open until I've cleaned up/followed-up on each of the comments reviewers have left or else the comments disappear.

    I don't like the options for saving/printing/outputting the comments to paper or files; they're not nearly as useful as having it all right in Acrobat Pro with the tools I normally use.

    Please add the feature to close a shared review to new comments…

  3. Edit default text (color, font, size) for Measure Tool

    The measurement tool lacks any ability to change the text font, size, and color for measurement labels, the default is not sufficient especially because it tends to glitch and turn from an Ariel type font to a very spaced out Courier font which is not convenient for measuring small distances, the perimeter and area measure tool should also enable text callouts.

  4. checkboxes on comments are broken

    Since a few Versions, we (on macOS) cannot check the checkboxes on comments. When we do, another comment appears (each time we click) stating that the checkbox has been checked (but it does not show ith checked).
    When working with hundreds of comments, often using from different computers, it is imperative to know, which ones have been dealt with and which ones have not.
    Please fix the checking of the comments (and have a look into why those only work for the computer they have been checked and are not being displayed correctly on other machines!).

  5. Let dropbox host shared reviews

    I want to do a Shared Review, but I do NOT want to use Document Cloud to do it because the commenting functions are so limited.

    Why not revamp the Send for Shared Commenting to include Dropbox/Box/Google Drive?

    The original Send for Shared commenting including WebDav, Network folder, and Sharepoint, but it was designed about a decade ago, long before cloud storage services became so popular.

    Since Dropbox lets multiple users have read/write access to a folder, it would be great to incorporate that functionality into Acrobat Shared Reviews. Users can already open and save files to and from a…

  6. Crash when closing multiple PDF windows from the same file with comment pane open

    Found a reproducible crash in Adobe Reader DC -both free and Pro version (likely 100% occurrence in core i7 U series 7th, 8th gen, Xeon Gold, AMD Athlon):

    Prerequisite:
    Under PREFERENCES>GENERAL, "Open documents as new tabs in the same window (require relaunch)" is UNCHECKED. This means every time I open a new PDF file, it will appear as a new window instead of nested tabs.
    - Opening a PDF file with highlighter markups
    - Opening a comment pane of that file
    - Then opening a new PDF window (from the same file): Window>New window
    - Opening another PDF file or…

  7. When deleting comments, the acceptence/rejection of the comment stays in the document

    Hello,

    When deleting comments in a PDF-document in Adobe Acrobat Pro, the comments themselves are indeed removed, but if these comments were once accepted or rejected, this information stays around in the PDF document. Adobe Acrobat Pro know to ignore it and doesn't show it, but when opening that document on iOS for example, that information is still shown as some sort of comment, which is impossible to find (and thus remove) in Adobe Acrobat, because Adobe ignores these.

    This is highly undesirable. Can this be fixed please?

    Thank you,
    Best regards,
    Jeroen

  8. A simple shortcut for setting 'Complete'-status on a comment in Acrobat

    For a PDF with 50+ review comments it would be nice to have a shortcut for changing the status to 'Complete', instead of right clicking every boks. Same for the new 'share for review' feature.

  9. Why is there a problem every time there is an automatic update to Acrobat DC? I now can't print to pdf or save as.

    Mi idea is....take more care, and check properly before issuing an automatic update. Is a product that works too much to ask? It's like having a washing machine that receives an unwanted, unscheduled service that stops it working every time after the service engineer leaves. Adobe used to be so good in this respect....what happened??

  10. BUG - Keyboard activation of comment tools not working

    Typing into the text while the comment menu is open usually activates the relevant comment tools (eg. striketrough, add text etc.) but this function seems to be broken since the last update.
    Working like this – having to choose a new tool each time from the menu (three mouse clicks as opposed to no clicks) – is highly frustrating when you use Acrobat for heavy professional editing jobs.
    This is my main use of acrobat. Please fix asap.

  11. Let users disable "type to create comment" when Commenting: it breaks Single-Key Accelerators

    When I'm reviewing my highlights in the Comments pane and want to highlight something, keyboard clicking U instead creates a new comment. When I first select something and then click U.. it's striken through instead of highlighted? That is the opposite of what I'm trying to achieve!

    I have to first cursor-select the Highlight tool to be able to properly keyboard switch again between other tools. I understand that giving U different functions in different contexts makes sense but this very much seems to be a bug.

  13. delete all redactions

    Since I work one copy I like to mark my redactions and when complete I save a copy to apply the redactions and then I remove all the redactions to have a clean copy. I may not want to remove all comments, just the redaction boxes

    I do this so if I remove pages I don't have to do so on multiple copies and try to keep track of where I am.

  14. Remove comment stickers when save as JPG

    When save PDF as JPG format, we can see which has comment stickers on it by default, I think it doesn't make sense since JPG format is not the proper way for reviewing all the comments. Maybe it can be a optional setting for comment existing when save as a JPG.

  15. Straight line highlighting

    Please allow the user to draw a straight line with the highlight tool. Trying to track a straight line through text with the mouse is nearly impossible. It blows my mind that this feature is not available in a PDF reader that costs $180 per year

  16. Bug: Comment list headings show wrong date (off by one day)

    When the comment pane is sorted by date, the date group heading shows one day earlier than the actual date of the comments.
    A comment dated "Jun 26" will show under a group heading of "6/25/2020"
    A comment dated today (showing a time only, no date) will be grouped under a date heading "9/25/2021" (when the date is actually 9/26/2021).
    Steps:
    Create a comment (sticky note or add note to replace text)
    Sort comments by date
    Expected: today's comment 5:16 pm grouped under "9/26/2021"
    Actual: today's comment 5:16 pm grouped under "9/25/2021"

  17. Bug with click and type when using Comments in Acrobat on Mac

    With the selection tool selected and the comments pane open, you should be able to click and type anywhere in your PDF, and the relevant text edit tool will be applied (strikethrough, replace, insert). This is a great timesaver. On my Mac, though, this works until I press one of the 'problem' keys – such as e, y, i, d, h, j – at which point no mark-up appears and my keyboard is disabled (including the arrow keys) until I close Acrobat and reopen it.
    Does anyone else have this problem or know how to fix this bug? It doesn't…

  18. Fill & Sign Commenting

    I have been using Fill & Sign to annotate and mark academic assessment tasks. I noticed that when you click on "Ab" to enter a comment, it remembers previous comments you have entered, which can be very time-saving when you have lots of similar tasks to mark. Here's my question:
    Using this "Ab" commenting tool, can you build up different comment banks over time for different applications, can you upload, download, edit such comment banks, and if so what format of file would you need to use? For example, being able to have a simple text file with comments for…

  19. With Adobe profile update, all comments on Shared Acrobat Files are missing

    I came in with a notification to log into Adobe Creative Suite for profile setup. After running the the dialog box to set up the profile, I lost all comments on shared Acrobat files. That is over 5 hours of review comments lost. Is there a way to retrieve those comments? I have no interest in reviewing a 90 page document again.
