  2. Extract icon in Quick tool stop working

    I use to be able to click on the icon and the extract function would open. Now, when I click on it nothing happens. I did remove it and re-add it but it still not working.

  3. Page Thumbnails Options Menu

    The new "Add a custom page" menu item has been placed on the Page thumbnails Option menu in the former location of "Extract pages." Even though I am aware of this addition, years of muscle memory from quickly processing PDFs has me continually selecting the wrong menu item. It takes up to a minute for the custom page feature to load, only for me to cancel it, and then try to select the Extract pages choice. A feature to add a page should properly be placed within the Insert pages option. If this were done, it would return the option…

  4. tool not installed

    I installed DC and am trying to edit pages and every time I attempt to edit, it says the tool is not installed. Or more features are installing and we will let you know when you can use your program.

    If I installed the program, why are you not providing a complete program? I paid for a subscription, why are you failing to provide the complete tool set?

  5. Add a single-command function to create new layers for all pages in the same pdf file

    ask for one single command to create new layer(s) on all pages for note taking purposes. easy to toggle between showing and hiding the notes.

    Now users can only create new layer page by page by "importing layers" from files. Adobe should bring in the similar function available in Photoshop which allow users to create a blank layer(s) for all pages of a pdf file in a single command, and let users to enter notes, comments or other annotations on the selected layers. readers can then switch the layer between visible and hiding depending on the use scenario.

  6. Find the selected geometry

    In the FIND function, it would be great if I can find a selection. For example if I want to find all the instances of a geometry I selected like an arrow (3 lines geoemtry)

  7. Redacting PDFs

    Acrobat seems to have changed the options when a user tries to Save and there are existing markups on a document to prompt the user to Save&Apply or to Save. The Save&Apply is the default option. It would be helpful if Save was the default option so that users don't accidentally Apply redactions and lose the original version.

    As far as I can tell when Save&Apply is selected, it only saves a version with the applied redactions, rather than the original and the redacted version.

  8. Redacting PDFs

    When you batch apply redactions to a group of PDFs in a folder, it would be great if Acrobat did the work in the background and allowed the user to continue working. Currently, Acrobat opens every document which means that a user cannot continue doing something else.

  9. clipboard functionality

    Just as I can save a signature and insert into the signature field. I would like to be able to save other information (address, phone, fax, etc) and be able to insert into those fields. Essentially you need a clipboard within Adobe to store text that is commonly used.

  10. Allow files embedded in Word files to open when converted to PDF. The embedded file will not open it has to be reattached.

    I have a word o365 file that needs to be converted to PDF. The word file has a pdf embedded inside it. IT opens in the Word file but when i hope the word file that was converted to a pdf the embedded pdf no longer works i have to re-attach it.

  11. Allow bookmark to be permanently visible on the page itself (Stamp?)

    Bookmark visible as a stamp on page itself so that the user can see what the document title is without having to open the bookmarks pane. This should be a toggle on/off capability and be moveable on the page (select which section of the page it appears in default). Might also be helpful if the stamp defaults could be edited for font, size, etc

  12. Acrobat DC does not release the file even after closing it

    I have just installed the latest Adobe DC from your website. I have pdf files on removable media. I open and close pdf files. Acrobat DC reader does not release the files even after closing them.

    When I try to eject the removable media, Windows says device in use. Unless I shut down Windows, the files are not released. Very frustrating.

  14. PDF Split & Merge Software

    PDF Split & Merge allows you to easily split and merge PDF documents in just a few simple steps. It has one major drawback, however. This is the unfriendly interface that can take some time to get used. PDF Split and merge are a great tool.

    Split PDF documents with multiple configuration options will be possible. You can also join several files together in one file. PDF Split and merge works fast and efficiently so you can get the job done in a matter of minutes.

  15. preset margin controls/crops

    I have a ton of unique one-page documents that I have to crop using the exact same margin control parameters every single time I generate a new one. It's only a temporary crop, but it would be nice to have a way to preset those values so I wouldn't have to enter them every single time I need to crop.

  16. Color Management setting goes from Synchronized to Unsynchronized

    This behavior has been around for some time, but here goes, maybe they will pick this up to fix it.
    Adobe Acrobat Pro on macOS.
    I open Adobe Bridge and choose Color Settings to choose a color setting and synchronize across Adobe apps.
    I open Adobe Acrobat Pro. I choose Preferences and go to Color Management. As expected, it shows "Synchronized..." etc. I choose a different panel in Preferences, and then close it.
    Now, open Adobe Bridge or Acrobat. Now, the Color Settings is Unsynchronized.
    Basically, it looks as though if I ever select and open the Color Management panel…

  17. Bug: Watermark

    I found A BUG where when you save your individual watermark in other units than inches it doesn't save the actual units. When i put in millimeters then save it. It puts the units back to inches. Please can you fix it? Sometimes when you forget to check it, there is watermark in the middle of the page. Thank you

  18. Custom Redaction Pattern Not Displaying In Acrobat

    I need to redact driver's license numbers from about 1200 PDF pages in Acrobat DC. There is no redaction pattern for driver's license numbers. I found tutorials on how to add custom redaction patterns. I created an updated version of the program's "SearchRedactPatterns" xml. I uploaded the updated version to replace the xml that was already there using a file path shown in multiple tutorials. There are no error messages associated with the new xml and I see no syntax errors in the coding that would prevent it from working. But the new custom pattern does not display in the…

  20. Acrobat blocks editing due to secured document, but no security policies are on document

    When I attempt to edit the document, I receive the following message:
    "This is a secured document. Editing is not permitted."
    When I look at the document's security settings, they are all disabled.

    Tests I have tried:
    - Downloading and testing the same document on another device - could not replicate
    - Downloading and testing a different PDF on this device - could not replicate
    - Re-installing Acrobat on the affected device - no change
    Please see attached the document.
