  1. Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, version 2021.001.20150 -

    The version used above will not display "all recent files". When this option is selected, takes you to a blank page and the search function doesn't work.

  2. Remove Sign On Screen For Adobe Pro

    I work at a Library and we just purchased Adobe Professional for our public computer lab. Unfortunately, I was just told by support that there is no way to use Adobe Pro without having to sign in. We do not want to have to sign in for each user that needs it plus I do not want to stay signed in with my user name. It is absolutely ridiculous that there is no work around or a registry edit that would allow the sign on screen to be removed. Surely, we are not the only ones where having to sign…

  3. Quick startup is vital, was better before (Pro)

    Adobe (XI/Pro) was better before.

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 11.0\Acrobat\plug_ins\Annots.api

    Version: 11.0.10.32
    
    Creation Date: 2014/12/03
    Creation Time: 08:32:16

    For some obscure reason, now it wants to process the document or verify signatures when i open the document. ....... and I have to sit there and wait ! .......

    That's not what I want.

    I want it to poen in less than 1 second.
    Then I want to check something on that document (think like paper document" in 2 seconds.
    And then I want to close it again in 1 second.

    Your are not doing that ! ,....... you're stealing my time.

  4. PREVENT ACROBAT FROM STEALING FOCUS WHEN BINDING PDF FILES

    USING WINDOWS 10, WHEN BINDING PDF FILES, ACROBAT GRABS FOCUS FROM ANY OTHER PROGRAM, FOR EACH PDF FILE BOUND.

    THIS MEANS THE COMPUTER IS COMPLETELY UNUSABLE UNTIL ACROBAT FINISHES THE BINDING PROCESS.

    WHEN BINDING LARGE NUMBERS OF FILES THIS PROCESS CAN TAKE SEVERAL MINUTES.

    PLEASE DISABLE THIS FOCUS GRABBING BEHAVIOUR.

  5. show/hide tool pane via quick tools or pull down menu

    Please let users create a quick tool that allows to show/hide the tool pane. Alternatively, let users open the tooI pane as a pull down menu. Basically, I am only asking to get back what we had in previous versions of Acrobat Pro where tools would open as a pull down menu. It would be nice to show/hide the tool pane without mental effort, without scratching the head about memorized keyboard shortcuts (I understand that I can do so via SHIFT+F4 but then users have a lot of keyboard shortcuts to remember across a lot of software tools.)

  6. Folder count in Landing Page

    Provide a means of increasing the number of folders that are displayed when in the "Save As" dialogue. You could also just use File Explorer and do away with the "Landing Page" as I more often than not end up selecting a displayed folder and then selecting another folder from there. Most inconvenient unless you always work in the same five folders. This is one of the nicest features of the "backstage" in Office apps (setting the number of recently used files or folders in "Options"). Having the ability to increase the number of folders displayed in "Files>Computer" on the…

  7. Make the Find box a sidebar

    I use the Find/Replace feature far more than the other tools that Adobe is promoting. And yet this is the only tool that I can't move to a sidebar! It overlays the text and blocks view of the material you're searching. At least before I could drop it into the header bar.

  9. More view options for the "Add Open Files" screen when using the Combine Files tool

    Frequently I have to combine files that I have opened in Adobe from a scanned version. When using the Combine Files tool, there's an option to "Add Open Files." This feature is super nifty by incredibly vague. Once you select which files you want to be working with, it adds them to a preview screen -- the order of which is the reverse of the order you have the files actually opened within Adobe. A few little changes would make this so much better... 1) Spruce up the file select screen after clicking Add Open Files (it wasn't obvious to…

  10. Remove the "Billing Issue" warning from the Ribbon. I have paid, I just don't want my credit card on file for autorenewal.

    It is very unprofessional and annoying for you to plant a bright red warning message prominently on my ribbon in the upper right corner WHEN I HAVE ALREADY PAID you. When i click on it, it says the warning is because I have not given you my credit card to auto-renew so I will lose access in the future. I will decide based on my user experience if I want to renew. This is harassment and a distraction to me when using the Acrobat Pro DC software.

    I just tried for 20 min to find a way on your site…

  12. Disable Bookmarks on Mac

    Is there a way to disable the bookmarks pane from opening by default on Mac? I've seen people edit the registry on Windows computers to achieve this but haven't been able to find a similar solution for Mac.

  13. Trim View Display

    It be nice to have a Trim View display option similar to the Trim View display option in Illustrator. This view would temporarily hide the bleed and slug areas of the page.

  14. Difficult to know where to post a question

    I have Acrobat Pro Dc and I have a question that I want to ask the community as the help desk is already closed at 5pm. But from all the logo's I could not directly know on which one to click because nowhere I could find Acrobat Pro Dc. Please make things easier for everyone so we can post our questions at the right place. Maybe you can put a filter function so that we can put Acrobat Pro Dc and so we can come directly in contact with people who know a lot about pro dc and can help…

  15. Acrobat doesn't remember tool layout/selection I created.

    I'll add a tool, in this case Action Wizard, to the tool bar and Acrobat only seems to "remember" my new tool bar for a a few days and then sets everything back to its original state.

  16. annoying home screen

    Please allow me to set a preference that Adobe will NOT display that annoying home screen (the one with all my recent files listed) Just what I need, another open window to get in the way.

  18. Adobe? Hello? No Labels on toolbar icons????

    Can someone from Adobe post and say if this will be changed in the next update? It is completely UNBELIEVABLE that software is "updated" to make it more difficult to use and hinder our workflow IMMENSELY! I cannot imagine how a beginner user could use this. I'd like to know if this will change because I'm considering alternative PDF creation software and will cancel my subscription to Acrobat and I don't want waste time to learn to use a new application if this will be corrected soon.
