  1. Renaming PDF files CRASHES EVERYTHING

    every single PDF document i rename, closes every active application!
    it shuts down the documents folder completely and i have to start all over. so, to rename a PDF document, i need to: STEP 1 - open documents folder, STEP 2 - open subfolder, STEP 3 - open another subfolder, STEP 4- right click on the document i need to rename, STEP 5 - make the change, STEP 6 - CRASH!!! sometimes the name change works, sometimes i need to repeat for the same doc until it sticks (3-4 times). if i'm "lucky", i can continue to the next doc…

  3. PDF is still freezing for 5-10 seconds or more upon loading doc. Acrobat DC is trying to access the Cloud Service and can't.

  6. Font replaced with dots

    Editing a PDF that used Arial Narrow first issued a warning that I don't have the font installed and would substitute it with an other font. Now that I installed the font, each letter or number is replaced with a dot.

    The font works fine in a text editor.

  7. I want my money back. I needed to edit text. I spent extra money to be able to edit text in a PDf, and it will not even find it the text.

    allow easy selection of each element and the editing of said elements. This program is no where near user friendly and by the way...paying extra for each ability of a program because the company gives it its own name, is completely ridiculous.

  11. Permanently open PDF Files with a certain tool

    It would be nice if we could select a certain tool (like comment or combine or organize) which can then be automatically selected when opening a new pdf. e.g., sometimes i need to organize the pages of 200 different pdf's, so when i open the next pdf the organize tool would automatically be selected and i could immediatly select the pages to delete.
    i hope i explained this properly, would be a nice feature and it's not that big a deal.

    thanks in advance.

  13. Global font formatting

    I would love to have the ability to select an embedded font of your choosing and change its formatting across the entire document. Enfocus PitStop allows you to do global font replacement, but adding the ability to change size, color, and other formatting would be a major time-saver.

    Thanks,
    Brian

  14. Adobe Acrobat DC Stamp Favorites disappearing everyday

    I create stamps and place them in my stamp pulldown menu. They remain there for the rest of the day. I log off my PC at night. Log back on the morning and open Adobe Acrobat DC. Open a PDF and try to stamp with one of my create stamps. The ones that were at the top of the pulldown as a favorite yesterday is no longer there. I then have to open the stamp and make it a favorite again.

  15. Acrobat Pro DC is unusable.

    When I edit a pdf, Acrobat refuses to let me save it. It tells me I'm not authorized to do that. I save it under a different name and then try to delete the file that I don't want, and it won't move to the trash can either. If I try to overwrite an existing pdf with a new file of the same name, it says it can't do it. It won't work until I open task manager and stop acrobat and then try. I cannot do this every hour at work. I really want to get the 2018 version…

  16. Allow Text and Shapes (rectangles) to be entered directly into Form in "Edit PDF" rather than forcing the user to use Comments

    The only option to directly enter text surrounded by a shape is in Comments - or go back to square 1 and reimport the document from Word.
    Allow the text entered in Edit PDF to be covered by a shape with optional properties like transparency or colored border and background.

  17. Brightness / Contrast Filter

    It would be very helpful if a brightness / contrast filter could be applied to pdf's that have come from scans. This would allow poor quality scans to be quickly enhanced to improve readability and contrast

  20. Crop Page: Set Page Box does not have scroll bar to click OK

    I am using Windows 10 and Acrobat DC.

    Issue: I am unable to crop a page because the Set Page Box window does not have a scroll bar. So I cannot scroll down to where the OK button would be to execute the action.
