  1. Hand tool not staying selected as default

    Hi!

    Somewhere in the latest releases within past 1-2 months, my Acrobat Pro DC lost abiltiy to select Hand tool (Pan tool) as default. My current version is 2021.011.20039.

    It used to remember when I close and open document which tool is selected. Now it always defaults to Selection Tool no matter how many times or which way (i.e. right click -> Pan tool) I choose the Hand tool. I want the Hand tool to be the default.

    It also switches back to Selection tool if I enter the "edit text and images" mode and then exit the mode (not…

  2. Guides not showing in rulers

    Guides do not show in the rulers when you drag them from the ruler. Previous version did show the guides, so when you drag out from the ruler, you can see the exact location in inches on the document.

  5. Disable search look ahead while typing

    I work in a regulatory environment and searching PDFs is increasingly important to find information quickly. Many of the PDFs are large, in the order or 200 pages or more.

    In the current software, Adobe starts to look ahead after 2 or 3 characters are typed. This probably makes sense for a document that is say 10 pages long. But in a 200 page document it stalls the PC and messes up the search, for example if I'm searching for "thermometer" the PC gets stuck collecting all the words "the", "there", and anything else starting with "th" or "the". It's…

  6. Permanently disable "reopen closed PDFs" nag box

    You've been asked to do this for years. MAKE IT HAPPEN finally. I mean come on. It's about time you gave "pro" users pro tools, such as being able to FULLY customize our Acrobat workspace so that amateur annoyances such as this can go away forever. If I want hand holding I'll ask for it.

  7. Resizing the auto stamp and saving it as my default size

    My job requires that I use the auto stamp to bubble all the features on my prints. As this could be any number of features I find the auto stamp very helpful. The only problem is that the stamp is to large for the area I have to place it. This means that I have to spend a lot of time resizing them manually. If I could set a certain size, even if I had to do it for each print, it would make my job quicker and easier. As a Quality Inspector I need to use my time better.

  8. Acrobat blocks after start for 60 seconds

    Acrobat Pro DC 32 Bit, 2021.007.20099
    - The program blocks for approx. 60 seconds after it has started. No functions are then possible. At the top of the program bar, Windows reports: "No response". After the 60 seconds have elapsed, the program reacts normally.
    - Originally existing zoom functions are no longer available: Ctrl + / Ctrl - / Ctrl 0 (Zero) do not work

    – Programm blockiert nach dem Start für ca. 60 Sekunden. Es sind dann keine Funktionen möglich. Ganz oben in der Programmleiste meldet Windows: „Keine Rückmeldung“. Nach Ablauf der 60 Sekunden reagiert das Programm normal.

  9. Fluent Icon design for Microsoft Office add-ins on Windows

    The Acrobat section in Microsoft Word's ribbon uses icons that do not match the native design on Windows or Microsoft Office. A new icon set would look nice. It's just a few icons, so it would not be a lot of work.

  10. Ability to see Ruler Placement whilst Dragging

    With Rulers turned on, you can click and hold on the Vertical or Horizontal Ruler and drag down into the document to check where on the document a particular section is - or to line up multiple items etc.. Up until version 2020, when you were dragging your line into place, you could see the line to place it very accurately, but now in 2021 you cannot see the line until you release the mouse button

  12. Quick tool icons are TOO BIG

    Quick tool icons are TOO BIG - In Adobe X I was able to fit ALL of my Quick Tools across the top, now you've apparently optimized the program for tablets and there is no way to make the Quick Tool icons small enough which creates TOO MUCH UNNECESSARY CLICKING. WHY do you assume that everyone needs these GIGANTIC icons? Why can't we reduce the size or the "padding" around them? It's beyond annoying.

  13. Give option to make Hand Tool the default option instead of the Select Tool

    The Select Tool is the default tool. I never use it and have never seen a need to use it. It makes the screen turn blue and wants to select things instead of letting me drag and move around the page to review large documents. I always have to stop what I'm doing and switch to the hand tool. I am opening and managing easily over 100 PDFs a day and having to switch at every new document is frustrating and time consuming. Adding this as an option would save so much time for users that need this as their…

  14. PDF Access - 'Copy Hyperlink' in Context Menu!

    Hello,
    Can we please have 'Copy Hyperlink' made available to Adobe Reader, in the Context Menu for hyperlinks in a PDF? Similar to how Microsoft Office does this, or just about everyone else I find it cumbersome and annoying to not have that.

    For example today I had to log out of my Google account in Firefox to test a hyperlink, in your doc I wanted to open in Chrome grrrrrr....

    Best,
    Justin Reina

  15. More Contrast Acrobat Bookmark Icon - Make the 'ribbon icon' more prominent for the selected page.

    Rather than having the bookmark icon for the selected page 'slightly darker' give it higher contrast for easier navigation - see image

  16. 2 page view dotted line

    When I look at a pdf in 2 page view without "show gap" I get this annoying dashed line down the centre - add an option to remove it because it's ugly and pointless

  18. Advanced search not available unless a document is open

    Previously, you could just open Acrobat and do an advanced search and select a folder to search, without having an actual PDF open. Now, advanced search is greyed out unless you have a doc open, even if you are not going to search the document, but rather a folder. What's the point of making users open a pdf when they don't want to search a single file?

  19. "Get a Link" button has been disabled for Portfolios and is causing a lot of frustration

    The "Get a Link" button has been disabled for Portfolios as of a recent update. Myself and many others in the legal field were using this feature. Also, disabling the "Get a Link" button makes no sense because the " Share with Others" button still works and can cause the same confusion for the person trying to download the portfolio. I understand that you had problems with people having trouble downloading the portfolio, but this attempted fix isn't a good solution. Instead, you should provide more help on the download page, which as of now, just says to download Adobe…

  20. Is there a way to revert back to acrobat 11. This DC is clunky and slow.

    I use ctrl = scroll wheel to scroll and space bar to pan. when i am finished i would like a shortcut...(like ctrl+shft=W) to leave the pdf at the whole page view. I need to be able to review large design plans, markup, and navigate quickly. I can't do this anymore. It use to be so clean and precise. Now its bloated and balooning like a cartoon, and does not seem to function well. If anyone has any secret tips to navigate large pdfs lightning quick while making edits, please let me know.
