  1. The new HUGE comment icons are botherson.

    The smaller icons were hard to match up with comments/edits, but these huge ones are impossible. Love the comment tool (as a graphic designer who passing brochures and ads off for review) but this feature surely could use improvement. Thanks!

  2. To be able to change the timestamp of my comments in a simple way.

    As a freelancer I sometimes work in "untimely" hours for example at 05:00 am. (Many will understand me).

    For this reason I would like the option to be able to select all the changes made by me and be able to change the date and time in a simple way.

    Currently there are "tricks" but it would be more comfortable if it could be done more simply by some option.

    Thanks.

  4. Keep Comment Bar Open When Reopen pdfs

    Would like the comment bar to stay open when save and close pdfs to avoid having to click Tools and Comments every time I open a pdf.

  8. Why does Adobe suck so much? Because they're CHEATERS!

    Dear Adobe - why you wanna harvest MY ideas? Isn't enough that you exploit intellectual talent around the globe!!!

    My complaint is about how much you SUCK!!!! I pay $16/month to open and edit PDFs. I pay half that to view movies!!! And that's faster than loading and opening your POS software! how you became a standard is what is wrong with this god forsaken planet!

    Closing this thread since not much of actionable input is there apart from expressing general sentiments.
    Please use this forum to request for new features you woud like to see in the product.
    If you have bugs to report – please explain the workflow and attach relevant files so that our engineers can act on those.

  9. Make comment color in sidebar match the color of the comment

    In previous versions of Acrobat, in the Comments pane, there was an visual indicator of the color of the comments. But in Acrobat DC< all the comments look the same. The color changes based on the AUTHOR NAME, which I suppose might be useful for some people, but not for me. The color of the comments in the comments pane needs to reflect the color of the actual comment, as it did in previous versions.

    Please restore the comments to look the way they did in previous versions.

  10. Create Comment Summary settings : save, enhance and allow presets

    1. It would be nice to allow at least saving default settings (paper size, font size, etc.)
    2. Best would be to create a set of predefined settings as in Create PDF with a menu to select one of those
    3. Please add a selection of mentions to include in the summary (or exclude). We don't need "Author: Text Replaced - Subject: Text - Date: Indeterminate" cluttering each comment. Thanks in advance.

  11. Math-Box, Math annotations, Equation editor for Commenting

    Built-in element in the comment toolbar similar to a text box that would allow the user to enter comments with more complex math expressions and style them in a decent manner. Compatibility with Mathml, Mathjax, TeX could be considered when implementing such a feature. Likely, a comparable feature would boost Adobe Acrobat's popularity in various scientific communities.

  12. Add selection crusor in comment mode

    There should be an Selection Cursor (Black Arrow) tool like all other adobe programs in comment mode.

    Right now if I am in text tool in comment mode. It is almost impossible to select the box to move it.

    Like all other adobe programs, create a black arrow selection tool, which can also be triggered by holding command key.

  14. move through highlights and comments instead of having to scroll through them

    I often view 100+ page PDF's, and I highlight stuff throughout them. I'd like to easily look through all of my highlights and comments without having to scroll through the entire PDF.

  15. Document with annotation skips to last page.

    The attached 5 page document jumps to the last page skipping four pages. The first page occasionally flashes into view when opening but than seems to disappear.

    The document was annotated with Adobe Acrobat X Pro

  16. Draw Shapes - add a no fill option

    Please add a separate opacity scale for "fills" and "borders" in the draw shapes, or add a "no fill" option for color. Right now they have to have the same opacity, and it would be nice to add boarders without a filled in box.

  17. Comment text becomes transparent when I click away

    When I enter text comments (comment --> add text comment), I can type onto the page as usual, but when I click away the comment becomes grayed out or transparent, so it is difficult to read without clicking back on the comment. I have explored all settings and have not been able to turn this off. I would like to have my text comments remain full color.

  19. [Bug] resize legends and annotation text box is very buggy

    1. Add a legend text box on a static page (the red boxes you find in the comment section)
    2. Try to resize the text box
    3. You'll find that the icons are not accurate : they change very quickly from "resize cursor" to "move cursor" to the little arrow, and it is very difficult to resize or even move the box.

  20. rounded highlight edges are problematic

    When highlighting, a recent update made it so that the edges of the highlight are rounded, rather than straight up and down. This is problematic when using highlighting to make comments for a compositor to do something with text in a proof, because it is not crystal clear which characters the highlight is actually applied to.

    For (just one) example, if I highlight a word within parentheses to mark for the compositor to make it italic, it looks like the parentheses are also highlighted when they are not.

    The attached screenshot with the blue selection shows what the selection looks…
