  1. remove recent files window when no document is open

    When no document is open in Acrobat DC, a recent files list is shown. While the list of files can be disabled, the window itself cannot. As someone who works in Prepress who opens hundreds of PDFs per day, each time I am finished with a file I must also minimise Acrobat DC to return to my working files. As it stands, Acrobat DC is taking up my full screen and providing no useful function, so in my view should include an option to disable this window.

    I just want to be able to quickly and easily select the "hand" tool or the "select" tool. One minute it's in the tool bar - the next minute it's not. I cannot work out the logic for when they do (or don't) appear or - more importantly - how to make them a permanent fixture in the tool bar.

  6. make home screen go away after closing PDF file in Acrobat DC

    make home screen go away after closing PDF file in Acrobat DC. Add option for preferences to disable the 'application frame'. This is super annoying as every time you close a pdf you have to press command W on the keyboard twice to close the windows.

  7. Please add Pinning of Bookmarks to LHP on Acrobat DC (Classic)

    Please add the Pinning of Bookmarks/Pages on the left hand pannel to Adobe Professional DC (Classic).
    We have end users who scan thousands of pages a day and find this to be an unacceptable waste of time.

  8. Adobe "Browse for file/folder" function is poorly designed

    in the new versions of Adobe, the browse for folder function - to open or save a file - is useless. Contrast it to every other conventional windows application, looking more like Windows Explorer where you can easily navigate to a folder, subfolder, file - but in Adobe, it immediately requires scrolling down, then selecting, scrolling down more, selecting a subfolder, etc.

  9. Save tool bar display settings when reopening documents

    I want the comment tools to remain as a toolbar. At present it goes away every time I close a document, and I have to bring it back every time I open a new document.

  10. Show/Hide Toolbars at the top of the screen

    Could you please re-add in the option to select which toolbars you wish to see on the menu bar area of the program? I am sick of having to click out of my document, look for the right option, and then search for what I want to do. I used to have my regularly used toolbars selected at the top of the screen, so I didn't have to go searching for them. This creates a lot of wasted clicks, time and effort on the part of the user. This is by far the worst version of Acrobat I've ever used,…

  11. Disable Recent Files Option

    When closing out of Adobe, please make it possible to disable File Lists window. If I'm closing a document and there's no others open, I would like to not have to close another window.

  13. Save As PDF dialog

    Hate the save as dialog. Why can't we have the same save as that every other app uses? Consistency please.

  15. Allow searches from a specific point

    In both Pro DC and Reader, if one is searching for a term, one can't go back to the beginning and search again for that term; one has to search through the document. So if I find the 5th instance at p. 12, even if I go back to the top of the document and even I then click at the top of the document, when I next hit control f, it will search from p. 12. But sometimes I want to find, say, the first instance, or some other. Hitting previous requires me to go through all the previous…

  17. Re-implement shortcut ctrl+0 for showing complete page

    Since the l shortcut "crtl+0" for "show complete page/size" (don't know the correct english wording) doesn't work in Acrobat anymore, please re-implement it so that this shortcut works in AI, ID and PS!

  18. Tool Bar Hide

    Feature to allow the tool bar to be hidden when any document is opened. The extra view space displaying large text is more important than a tool bar that is not used often.

  19. Would like ability to add the Snapshot tool to my Quick tools.

    Would like ability to add the Snapshot tool to my Quick tools. This was lost when you switched to DC. It is a very handy tool to have at the ready.
