  2. Copy & Paste

    Each Windows program can copy, cut and paste pages from thumbnail view - within a document. Only Adobe not! Adobe uses the mouse for that! Why? Please activate copy & paste again!

  3. Copy paste OR duplicate a page in thumbnail view

    Should have an option to enable the user to copy paste or duplicate a page in thumbnail view. For example, I make a blank pg in a pdf file which I should be able to copy-paste/duplicate, as a blank page, in between the desired pages of the pdf.

  4. Page Extraction and Page Deletion Errors

    I use Adobe in construction to review the plans in pdf format. Many times when I need to extract the sheet that our scope of work falls under an error comes us saying please enter a valid page range. Instead of simply being able to extract the page I have to delete all the extra pages I don't need. This is time consuming and does not always work. There are times when having to take this route Adobe says some pages were not removed and I have to save, close Adobe, then open the doc again to be able to…

  5. Disable Floating Icon

    Is there a way to disable the floating icon?
    The recent release introduced this feature. I don't find it useful at all, it always in my ways while I was doing the editing. It would be nice to be able to disable this feature.

  6. Choose pen highlighting colors at the time of your choice

    In the next versions Acrobat could give the possibility to choose the color of the pen of highlighting of text, already in the choice of the tool. Maybe clicking and following would open a color palette so the user could choose the highlight color.

  7. Highlight color

    I need to change highlight colors based on the different significance of the text, but I need to select different colors from the properties menu. It really takes a lot a time, can you make a button to change colors more efficiently on the viewing page?

    With the latest release, we have added a checkbox that will turn off the automatic OCR.

    1. Open any scanned pdf.
    2. Go to Edit PDF.
    3. Wait for OCR to complete.
    4. On the right hand pane, uncheck the “Recognize text” option. (Alternatively, if you see a button ‘Revert to Image’, click on it).

    This will turn off the auto-OCR feature. Now, Acrobat will not run OCR automatically. Acrobat remembers this setting so that you do not have to uncheck it again.

    Let us know if this helps.
