  1. Clone and brush tools zigzag across screen when I try to use them

    When I try to use the clone stamp or brush tool, it automatically starts doing a zigzag pattern all over my PDF, not where I had indicated for it to go.

  2. edit

    Click Edit and the first thing that occurs, Rotate/Skew. Can this be disabled? 99.9999999% of the time I just want to add or edit text. Instead I have to wait for R&S to complete, then UNDO R&S just so I can get to edit text. Huge waste of time.

  3. "Mark up" PDFs -- not "edit"

    Editing is not really the correct word. For millions of users, we simply want to "mark up" a PDF by, say, underlining a sentence. That was dead easy with Adobe Pro XI. Now seemingly impossible with DC. Constantly get image processing error messages. No customized user toolbars, as with Pro. Basically DC has been over-thought. 99% of users want the basic functionality of Adobe Pro XI.

  4. No good, easy to use highlighting tools available.

    As a user I want to quickly underline or highlight some text. That currently is painful (or I have not figured out how to do this, in that case it is not intuitive). I dont want to go into editing mode with the risk of editing every single element on the page, accidently move the text block etc. Just want to use my pen to quickly select and edit a chunk of text.

    See Foxit Mobile (they have done a great job, also with dark mode) however, the project is discontinued.

  6. Redact feature no longer functions properly

    I have hundreds of pages to redact in a scanned document and when I hit apply the screen over the document goes gray and a solid white box appears in the center. The white box usually give the options to use in the redaction process. I have to close Adobe with Task Manager. This is unacceptable. This is a recurring problem. I managed to clear it with difficulty a few weeks ago and the malfunction has returned. Please don't tell me to update. I checked. There are no outstanding updates. This is disappointing and annoying as I expected better from…

  7. MS Paint no longer works to edit PDF's like an image with Windows 11.

    Need to fix this for paint not working in Adobe. I need to be able to draw in Windows 11 paint, but it no longer works after the 11 updates.

  9. Editing on pdfs has always been clunky but now my space bar on my new Macbook Pro doesn't work at all while editing!!!

    Adobe should adopt similar editing capabilities found on Microsoft Word & PPT to their PDFs. Very cumbersome to edit pdfs now and, with my new MacBook Pro 14", my space bar doesn't function at all when editing text on pdfs!!

  10. Valid PDF cannot be edited in Acrobat

    We’ve recently encountered a set of PDFs that cause errors in Acrobat Pro DC.

    They are provably valid and syntax error free. We’ve checked the PDFs with:

    • Adobe's (DataLogics) PDF checker command line
      No errors reported.

    • Acrobat's pre-flighting
      No errors reported.

    • RUPs (IText)
      No errors reported.

    • Enfocus PitStop
      No errors reported.

    Every other software we've tried can open, read and edit the document without issue.

    Yet when these same PDFs are opened in Acrobat DC Pro, we find that Acrobat shows generic errors when an attempt is made to edit the PDF.

    Steps to reproduce the issue:

    1) Open…

  13. After I save a PDF document after editing it for a while, I lose the ability to bring up right click mouse options.

    When I save a PDF document after editing it for awhile, I lose the ability to bring up right click options. All my software is up-to-date and this problem has occurred over multiple devices for quite awhile now. The only workaround is to shut down the application on the desktop and re-launch it.

  15. Make it possible to select and object/objects and export them as separate images or files

    Make it possible to select and object/objects and export them as separate images or files.
    Say you have a logo in a document that is made up of shapes and you want to export only that logo as a png for example. You can't do that now and I wish that was an option.

  17. Why can't I copy the text just as it is in my original document?

    I am trying to copy both Thai text and Burmese text from a Pdf document. But these are not recognized languages in this Adobe program so it tries to copy them as English and makes a mess of them. Why can't the text be copied over as it appears in the original document? Then, I could use Google translate to change that into English. There is no need for Adobe to recognize the language being copied, just copy it exactly as it is in the original document.

  19. FIND & Replace broken/hangs & should allow single character replacements, especially since problem needed after import errors

    When importing text into Adobe Acrobat DC Pro, it often has single character errors throughout the document. In using your Find/Replace feature, it only worked once for only some of the instances. I think it has to do with your default to "whole word" being greyed out, but honestly this should be a straight-forward feature! It should allow any text string to be replaced throughout the document, especially formatting characters caused by import errors. Also, I did try the redact feature and it did NOT work as I need the formatting to be corrected. Additionally, although I did get a…

  20. New DC Edit Function

    I've recently upgraded to the new DC version from my previous PRO version.

    The editing function is unbearable to use, typing in the text box is so slow it's impossible to get anything done/progressed.

    Also adding lines and other mark-up boxes shapes seems to be now non-existent.

    If Adobe bring out new versions and expect us to pay for the upgrade, surly we should at least expect this to be an improvement on what was there previously and not a backward step, disappointing thus far unless I'm missing something with my upgrade??

    Can someone help.
