  1. Acrobat (and all derivative applications) should have a file Refresh/Reload command & shortcut

     Acrobat (and all its derivatives & applications) desperately need a "Reload" or "Refresh" command for the currently selected .PDF document.  Not only may the document have changed without notice on the server without a semaphore lock on the file, but also Acrobat applications can and do frequently run into some kind of file reading problem, such as temporarily disconnected server, timed-out internet connection, corrupted connection, or not enough memory at the moment.  
    Who knows why these issues weren't accounted for in Acrobat's development, but because of these issues, it seems very short-sighted from the development side to not have included

  2. Bring back the dashboard "sizer."

    PDF docs usually open so large on my monitor that I cannot see the whole page at one time. Why did you get rid of the handy dashboard tool that let me reduce or enlarge the size? Please bring it back!

  3. Bug report: search feature broken; finds only wrong words on many documents

    The search feature fails to work on many text documents. This is a relatively new bug. When you search for a word Acrobat finds unrelated words. For example, in one document when I search for the term "Bergomeister" it finds all of the occurrences of the word "but". Sometimes if you cancel the search and try again, it will work.

  4. BUG: Cannot turn off the "Get e-signatures fast" banner

    I totally get that you want to tell people about new features of your application but I don't need it to STAY in the interface. It is extremely annoying that I cannot turn off this banner. Give me a way to get rid of the **** thing

  5. Open File Location of current PDF

    Please make some way of locating the file of the currently open PDF.

    Maybe right clicking the tab and selecting "open file location" or something. It's literally impossible to figure out where your current open file is located and is quite aggravating.

  6. XFA - based forms support

    XFA based PDF forms are not supported in Browser that is what we heard from Adobe support. We would like to create a Design change request for Adobe cloud. When we open any XFA based PDF form from sharepoint site, Adobe cloud should trigger the file to open in client application. (Adobe reader etc)

  7. Open folder options.

    The adobe acrobat functions are amazing. I think the user interface needs to be improved. I think there should be a way to set a "default" opening folder. Start screen where it shows RECENT|STARS|SCANS. Also I think you should allow folder creating at higher level. So that you can do something "like" Google Stacks.

  9. change uncheck method

    I scan files on my phone and then download them to pc, usually as a batch, when I am selecting said files if I click outside the tiny box all of the previous files that I have individually clicked get unchecked and I have to start over before I can download files. changing that would be awesome, what would be even better is if I had the option to make a folder on my pc where the files could automatically be downloaded when I upload them from my phone. the whole binder download process works but it is somewhat clumsy.

  10. Remove e-signature ad in tool menu

    Why is there an ad for e-signatures in the tool menu. It's embarrassing that I'm being advertised to in a $200/year program. It is also breaking the UI by forcing a scroll bar in the tool menu when there was none before the ad.

  11. Add context menu to show the Font name of highlighted text

    I want to know which font is being used when I highlight the text in question. A simple right click after the text is highlighted could present a context menu that would do the trick.

    Please give more control to these account like you do with the Enterprise. All I can do right now, is create, delete, add apps and rename. Id like to be able to authenticate users and reset passwords ect. Just like the Enterprise users have

  13. Shrink and/or autohide open document tab bar

    The tab bar, menu bar, and that giant arrow down the right hand side take up way too much space. This is especially the case for those who must zoom in due to poor vision. It is very restrictive.
    The document tab bar is twice the height that it needs to be for the height of its text.

  14. Give users better control of UI

    I open many PDFs every day that are created by multiple people in multiple different ways. Every. Single. Time I open a PDF, the bookmarks bar pops up, even if it's a single page document with no bookmarks. Also, whenever I have hidden the tools or anything else (F8 and F9), opening a new document brings all that stuff up. That means every time I open a document, I have to click 4 extra times to get rid of all the garbage so I can just see the document. Can you please just give us some preferences to never or…

  15. Please give users a way to disable contextual tips. Please. Please.

    Please give users a way to disable contextual tips. This disrupts my work and it's irritating. I got a new iMac last year and did a clean install of the Adobe apps I use via the Creative Cloud app. Contextual tips have never stopped popping up.

    Please make this stop. Please. Please. Please.

    See the attached screen shot for the one that disrupts me most often.

    Yes, I've searched your forums and posted about this repeatedly. Now I'm doing so via the Feedback feature in the app.

  16. smaller Click Here area in lower right

    It would be great if only the words Click Here was the clickable part at the lower right, instead of the entire rectangular area. Invariably when I resize my window from that corner it launches whatever is the current content down there. Not huge but kind of annoying when you're busy.

  17. Give option to have tool bars back as in version Adobe Pro XI

    You should make it optional to have either the icon tool bar or the same tool bar you have in Adobe Pro XI. To tell you that I HATE the icons is an understatement because you have to open them individually and it's hard to find what you are looking for. Meanwhile it makes me feel as if you think I'm stupid or an idiot. I'm fairly well educated and hate icons taking half of the page that could have been used for editing a document.

  20. I can not stop the Menu bar from highlighting

    The menu bar and all drop downs automatically highlight when I run my mouse over them - I can find no place to stop this or change any setting.
    I can't read the text!
