  3. 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.

  5. Ability to undock the comments list

    Ability to undock the comments list and view it horizontally.

    There are cases where the comments can be really long, and a vertically orientated list makes it really difficult to read, not to mention the comment may even take up the entire comments pane. Sharing the same screen space between bookmarks, the actual content, and the comments list makes everything less readable. Users should have the option to undock the list and view it anyway they like.

  6. Use the Drawing Tools to highlight objects

    I would like the addition of a checkmark within the drawings tool. I find the new highlighter blob tool kind of clunky, and I'd much prefer to use the drawing markup tools when I need to highlight objects. But right now, with the drawing markup tool I have to reduce the opacity, in order to get the object below to show through. I'd like the Drawing Markup Tools to actually be able to highlight the objects, using the highlight blending mode as the Highlighter tool does.

    Please add a checkmark at the top of the color picker that for "Highlight"

  7. Emailing a PDF from Acrobat via Outlook API issue

    When emailing a PDF from Acrobat via Outlook API, the default Outlook Signature is missing from the New Email Window. If possible, can this be corrected?

  8. 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…

  9. When filtering for Status of None, changing the status of a comment should remove it from the visible comments.

    It would be nice if comments you've dealt with would drop of the "None" filtered list. It keeps you from revisiting comments and it helps you track what still needs to be done.

    Right now the only workaround is to reset the filter to "All" and then refilter for "None". Do-able, but a real PITA.

    This feature is not required as on changing the status, the comment will suddenly disappear which will become troublesome to use.

  10. [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.

    Environment : Mac OS 10.11.6 Acrobat 11.0.22

  11. 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.

  12. preferences setting to turn off page headers in comments

    Those page number divisions in the comment pane are problematic. It is SO EASY when clicking into that pane to accidentally hide a whole set of comments and not notice. I have zero use for those dividers, and it woul be nice to be able to make them go away and not clutter up the comments pane.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.
