  1. Tab Color

    Set tabs to colors when working with more than one file helps to differentiate and sort. EXCEL allows tabs to be colored. Similar to that. Thank you.

  3. 8 PAGE FILE WILL NOT CONVERT TO OCR

    I am trying to edit an 8 page document and when it is about 5 pages through the conversion process to OCR it closes and does not complete. It would be nice if I could still edit a document without it needing to convert to OCR. I always undo OCR anyways.

  4. BUG REPORT - Read Only PDFs are editable on iOS devices using Acrobat App

    Situation
    A fillable PDF was created to be used as a template when bidding jobs. The PDF was placed on OneDrive and the permissions were changed to read only as to not be able to save over the blank template. When the file is open on a PC with the Acrobat DC application, the file works as intended and the user is forced to "save as" and not allowed to overwrite the blank template. When opened on an iPhone or iPad, the read only permission is completely overridden and the blank template is allowed to be edited and overwritten.

  5. Highlighter Tool - Allow for Selection of Colors

    Provide ability to change the color of the highlighter tool other than just allowing for yellow. For someone who reads legal documents all day long, it is important to have the ability to change the color of the highlighter.

  6. Variable Strikethrough Thickness

    The ability to apply strikethrough to text is incredibly useful, but seems un-utilized. Giving users the ability to change the thickness of the strikethrough could make a significant difference and increase the use of the feature. I find myself looking for strikethrough to only be slightly dissatisfied. I feel as though it "does the job" but doesn't offer quite enough in terms of obscuring that of which is being stricken through. Hope to see this go somewhere!

  8. I have purchased Acrobat Pro DC but not able to activate. I have edit a PDF file and I get the message to buy Acrobat Pro DC.

    I have tried everything I can do to activate my plan. I can see the plan under the Plans tab, I can see the order number and the billing information under the tabs but I cannot edit a PDF file. Its kind of a frustrating experience even after paying $179 still cannot get the service required.

  9. BUG: Redact tool custom patterns does not respect case sensitivity

    When using a custom redaction regular expression, the Redact tool doesn't correctly respect case sensitivity. The following pattern:

    (\b)([A-Z])([A-Za-z]+)(\b)

    ...should be tagging words that begin with a capital letter, but it instead marks all words in the entire document. Please allow the redaction tool to correctly tag words based on the specified capitalization in the RegEx patterns.

  10. REDACT

    The redact feature is really buggy, I was trying to redact text but the overlay text even set really small would go into two lines rather than one word and to select the redact paragraph was not user friendly. I instead just redacted it with the overlay white cover and then used the comment feature and wrote in redact

  12. Bring Back Real Deskew

    I work a lot with 2-bit (black/white) files of music scores. Since there is not a lot of text, the OCR-based deskew doesn't always work. In the current version of Acrobat DC there is NO incremental rotate, and if you use the "Edit Using" function to get to Photoshop, the Arbitrary rotation functionality is unavailable. This means there is CURRENTLY NO WAY TO DESKEW MUSIC using any combination of Adobe products. This is a bug that needs to be fixed.

  13. Automatically crop PDF-pages to the edges of the document

    Make Adobe Acrobat PRO DC be able to automatically crop PDF pages to the edges of the document. For example, send in an agreement photographed on a table with unnecessary artifacts (table, hands, etc.). You need to be able to turn a PDF file into an A4 document at the touch of a button.

  14. BUG - Redraw issue on Mac OS Big Sur

    Hello together,

    since I switched to the latest macOS Big Sur 11.2 from Catalina, I'm noticing the following with Acrobat DC.
    I would like to delete a print cut line on the PDF. To do this, I go to the Print Production tab and select Edit Object. Then I select the print cut line and delete it.
    Well, the cut line does not disappear directly. Only when I zoom in or resize the window. It seems like the desktop doesn't register the change (delete punch) or only with a time delay. On Catalina the change was not so delayed.
    I…

  15. Error restoring autosave after crash

    When autosave is turned on Acrobat periodically writes .tmp files to the autosave location containing annotations since the last time the file was saved. If Acrobat is forced to quit without saving the open file, upon restart it detects the presence of the .tmp file and offers to restore the changes. At that point that .tmp file is still in the autosave folder.

    Immediately after the user accepts that offer, Acrobat deletes the .tmp file and returns an error saying the file cannot be found or read and as a result all changes have been lost.

    This problem has existed…

  16. easily be able to delete the signature

    Hey,

    I've just signed up for a monthly subscription. i must say that this is by far the best editing software I've tried out. Its great. One big flaw though. I'm adding more than one signature to the pdf and then saving it. However after realising I needed to amend it I cannot simply delete the signature.Can you not just add a trash icon so that I could highlight the signature and then delete it? You could add a lock to the file that only the editor can unlock (maybe have a password when you hit the delete button?)

  17. Thai Language

    Hi,

    After the recent update, I can no longer add text in the Thai language. The program just insistently freezes and closes whenever I try to add text in Thai. It used to work well in the version before 2021 updates. Please fix it soon.

  20. Unacceptable Change After Upgrade (Adding Paste Text. Not Image)

    I am in the middle of doing project during the Chinese New Year holiday. After upgrading the software, it got me into this trouble. The "Add Text" by copy and paste from other source like spreadsheet doesn't work anymore as I used to be doing. After paste, it becomes an image instead of text. See attached screenshot for reference. Can you fix it as soon as possible? I really need this that's why I continue paying for the subscription. Your quick response will be highly appreciated.
