  1. Pop out PDFs from tabbed view

    Ability to pop out the PDF to a new window. Plus the ability to select multiple PDFs to compare side-by-side.

  2. Remove "Enable All Features" Button

    PDFs open with a protected view that requires the user to click on the Enable All Features button. This is not a useful security feature. Clicking on this button does not protect the user since the purpose of opening the document is to read it. This is a constant frustration for users that view hundreds of PDFs per day.

  4. BUG: Date format error message typo (Spanish)

    When you create a form field with Date validation, the default error message in Spanish has a typo. For example, if I set the custom date format to be "dd/mm/yyyy", there is a space missing. See attachment.

    Bug: "El formato debe coincidirdd/mm/yyyy"
    What it should read: "El formato debe coincidir dd/mm/yyyy" (notice the space after "coincidir")

    This happens on Acrobat for MacOS, only in Spanish.

    With the release of Acrobat on 2nd Oct, 2018, this issue has been addressed.

    If your product is not already updated, you can manually do so from within the product. Click on the menu Help→ Check for updates.

  5. Need option to see thumbnails sidebar automatically when opening ANY pdf.

    Apparently not a new request/idea. But, many of us use the same tools on most of our documents, but whenever we close the window, all the sidebars get closed, and have to be reopened again, often requiring 2 clicks or more to get back to tools we were just using seconds ago. I am specifically needing the page thumbnails to nearly always be open. It does seem as if each document can remember this setting after it has been open, at least for a while, but new docs open with the sidebars closed? I have not found a setting in…

  6. Continuous scrolling should be the default behavior.

    In some rare scenario one might want page scrolling to jump to next page like it does by default, but it is an annoyance in the most common context of reading a text document. While there is a way to change this setting, general people cannot be expected to understand that this is done by changing "Page Layout" to "Single Page Continuous" under "Page Display" from "Preferences" under "Edit" menu. Please beef up your UX team!

    Hi,

    You can always set the continous scolling as your default view.
    Here s how you can do this :
    1) Open preferences dialog (Ctrl+K) and go to Page Display tab
    2) under “Default Layout and Zoom” select the Page layout as Single page Continous and saveit

    Let me know if this helps ?

    Thanks
    Ayush

  8. Bottom tool bar

    Bottom tool bar which appears over the document every time, it's always covering a page numbers, it's disappears so long and slow and no way to close it or make not appear at all... I never, just never, used this bar and any tool it provides. Wish I could set preferences to get rid of that annoying tool bar. Thank you.

  9. can we please get rid of the "content preparation progress" bar I don't need to know, load it in the background

    can we please get rid of the "content preparation progress" bar I don't need to know, load it in the background, you dont see this on every webpage you visit, if you really want it make it a 1 pixel line that doesnt get in the way of the page view

  10. Would like ability to add the Marquee zoom tool to my Quick tools.

    Would like ability to add the Marquee zoom tool to my Quick tools. This was lost when you switched to DC. It is not nearly as useful when I have to go through three clicks to get to it first.

  11. Warning when closing multiple tabs in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

    Adobe Acrobat Pro DC should give a warning message that multiple tabs are being closed. This helps just in case the user has inadvertently entered a keyboard command (like Command-Q in macOS) instead of pressing Command-tab to switch to another open application.

  14. Allow Javascript buttons and menu items to be added in WebView (viewing a pdf from internet explorer)

    It would be greatly appreciated if custom buttons or menu items created in JavaScript be allowed to be added to the toolbars in WebView (Internet Explorer). This used to work in Acrobat and Reader in version 7, 8, 9 and X but now doesn't work :(

  15. Cannot hide junky tool pane in DC pro

    Every time Pro starts I have to press Shift-F4 before I do anything else.

    Maybe someone has some javascript that can be used at startup to close the pane automatically?

  18. Ability to set defaults for: Thumbnail size, Thumbnail pane width, and thumbnail size

    When creating or opening a new PDF, I always want my thumbnails to be displayed with 2 columns by default. ATM this involves manually stretching the pane over every time and is very time consuming.

    If we could set the default pane width, thumbnail size, and # of columns it would really streamline my workflow.

  19. Desktop Icon not possible

    The old version of Adobe was easy, you right click and put an icon for the program on the computer desktop. With this version there does not seem to be a way to do this. I have to go to the start program and hunt for Adobe in my list of apps.

  20. Navigation pane - page thumbnails

    Along with being able to customise (personalise) the "Quick tools" and change an extraordinary amount of settings in the program preferences, the ability to save the layout of the 'workspace' so-to-say should be possible.
    In particular, the 'Tools pane' and the 'Navigation pane' - show/hide setting should be persistent.
    This assists with productivity, and User eXperience.
