  1. Set Default Font for Edit Tool

    Why can we not set a default font in our editing tool. One already seems to be the default, but I can't change it.

  2. Preflight BUG: under MacOS Mojave 10.14.4 (18E226) in Acrobat Pro version 2019.010.20098

    under MacOS Mojave 10.14.4 (18E226) in Acrobat Pro version 2019.010.20098 when we try to perform run a preflight fix (generate 2 mm bleed), Acrobat can't do it telling there was an error but not showing what error. The same fix applied on the same file using the same version of acrobat works perfectly under MacOS 10.11.6 - We tested it on different machines with the latest version of MacOS and Acrobat.

  6. Default to have thumbnails show up

    I used to be able to have thumbnails show up every time I open a .pdf. I open very large file all the time, so it's very nice to be able to set thumbnails to be visible as a default instead of having to request it with each new document

  7. Cropping documents

    I went to crop a PDF to its printer marks and happily pressed the Crop tool in Edit mode. then selected the atre I wanted to crop, then had no idea how to apply the crop....nothing in the interface tells me I'm at the stage where I can now execute the crop. Everything is greyed out and only the Crop icon is available. I had to hit the Enter key to do it. Why is there no way to execute the crop, once the area is selected? Everything is done via the interface until the actual crucial part of the…

  10. "Edit any PDF"

    Please stop sending out emails that say it is quick and easy to edit a PDF without qualifying what is possible and what the consequences are. I have several clients who now think it is possible to edit PDFs, but the reality is that it is NOT possible to do so professionally.

    The end result of clients editing PDFs is that version control is lost from the original files that generated the PDF, artwork needs to be recreated to match the edited PDF and because there appears to be no way of tracking what the client has changed, the clients…

  11. Being about to type equations when you're editing PDFs.

    My professors take out certain parts of their powerpoints so students have to go to class to be able to fill in the PDF of the powerpoints. But, sometimes, I need to fill in equations but there is no way to add them like you can in Microsoft's equation editor.

  12. Drawing on PDFs

    As a student, I love adobe acrobat. I use many PDFs for research projects, and need to draw lines easily and do some equations using my touchscreen. It would be great to have a pen in the quick access tool bar, instead of having the bulky comment tool bar on top. Maybe i'm missing the option, but I'd love to see this. A competitor to one note?

  15. Random missing letters appearing when editing and saving over a PDF

    I cannot upload as the information is sensitive but there seems to be a programme glitch when you are editing and then saving over PDFs. I have just attached a screen shot instead. It happens maybe 8/10 times but when you are editing the text on PDFs random missing letters appear. It seems the only way to get around this is by copying and pasting the letters back in place and this doesn't even always work. The PDFs were originally designed in Indesign and saved out as PDFs as templates to be edited afterwards. I have called Adobe many times…

  16. I'd like to be able to copy/paste text from one PDF into another one and have the tagging structure follow it.

    It would be nice if the tagging structure followed text that is copied/pasted and/or exported/imported from one PDF into another one.

    thanks,

  17. Problem face while editing in PDF(Scanned), while editng in PDF it will automatically convert scanned tex to editable.

    It should not convert automatically. Firstly it should ask e.g. Do you want to convert the text into editable. Yes or No.
