  1. Restore the Open File button to the Tool Bar.

    I was just "upgraded" to the new Adobe version. Please restore the Open file button. Dumbest idea ever to remove it and create extra clicks in order to open a file.

  3. new measure tool is useless

    I want my old desktop downloaded 2011 version back with all of the functions intact. Paying an annual subscription for less functions and usability is garbage. We are a construction company that gets hundreds of project drawings in pdf format from owners and contractors. The new measure tool is one of my biggest complaints about the updated software. The measure tool basically has 1 function and it never works properly. If you do not have an original CAD or DWG file and the software to support it you cannot measure anything properly. I can no longer check or measure angles…

    Hi,

    Thanks for Reaching out to us.
    I would request you to kindly add the Loupe tool in your main toolbar. thats how you can do that

    1) launch any pdf and right click on the main toolbar
    2) select “Show Select and zoom Tool” and click on “Loupe Tool”
    3) click on the loupe tool icon added to the toolbar and then click on any area in the pdf

    Now you can see an enlarged view of a specific area in a pdf in a separate window

    Let me know if that solves your concerns

    Thanks
    Ayush Jain

  5. Fullscreen misbehaving, Mac

    I'm not sure if this is an issue with Mac (OS X El Capitan, 10.11.6) or Acrobat (Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, 2018.009.20044), but if i put Adobe Acrobat Pro is in fullscreen mode it will occasionally pop out of it and appear in the current view. I have not been able to recreate the issue in an accurate way, but I've mostly noticed it whilst chrome is loading pages in a new tab, but it's also happened with other programs like the finder. If I'm viewing another program in fullscreen mode when it happens Acrobat appears infront, blocking my view.…

  7. Bug: Toolbars not drawn properly on macOS Big Sur Dev Beta

    The toolbars in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC are not rendered at all when initially launching the app in macOS Big Sur Dev Beta 2. Resizing the window (including entering full screen) causes the bars to redraw correctly. Also reporting this to Apple.

  8. new interface is terrible - please give option of classic view

    I am a long time user of the creative suite and acrobat pro and have been intentionally not upgrading to DC because the interface is so aweful but now I have been forced to upgrade and I cannot stress how terrible it is. It's been around long enough for the feedback about how aweful it is to get back to you guys to fix the problem. Please fix it and add an option for classic view. It also looks an educational game for kindergarteners which I wouldn't even mind if it were easier to use. Please fix already.

  9. remove all the tool icons and replace them with text only menus

    I recently had to install Adobe Acrobat Pro and I would like to be able to remove the icons and replace them with text only menus. If I wanted to look at hieroglyphs I would tune in the Stargate series on MeTV.

    Is there a way to change preferences or an add-on that will remove the box-of-crayons-colors icons and display text menus automatically? I don't use the application often enough to memorize the mouse-over texts. It's tiresome enough dealing with texter's shortcut abortions of the English language these days. I'd rather not have to play a game of Concentration when…

  10. Let apps run in the background

    When I set Acrobat to run a task like text recognition for example, I don't want to sit there and watch the program do that. So I go to do something else on my computer. But Acrobat, and other Adobe programs continually push themselves to the foreground forcing me to wait while a task finishes. Why?

  11. Recent documents keep disappearing

    Links to my recent documents keep disappearing from the Recent list. The message says: "There aren't any recent files". Acrobat is currently up to date on my Windows 10 laptop. This is happening sporadically, with recent docs appearing as expected for some time, then vanishing without explanation, sometimes while I'm looking at the list Acrobat Pro DC.

  13. Small pop-up window to review a figure that has been refrenced on another page

    Instead of scrolling back and forth (e.g. in a scientific paper), one can have a small preview of the figure, referenced in text from another page, to follow with the current page discussion.
    This can show on the side of the screen as to not bother hiding the text being read.
    By reference I mean a link embedded in the fig mention. Many papers do so. If that is not available then you can type the figure label to search and bring it.

  14. save the rulers you put on the pdf

    save the rulers you have worked on
    why can't the rulers be saved. i can't believe that the program doesn't even do this. every time i open the file, i have to plot the rulers i need all over again. it can take hours sometimes and i leave the file open and the computer running if i have to walk away from it as a result. waste of time and effort.rulers are especially useful for construction drawings and they take eye gouging time to plot properly. i'm very certain those who work with the rulers would agree. i love adobe…

  16. Copy Full Path & filename into Buffer

    Add a right-click menu option (context menu) on the .pdf's Tab to offer the option to Copy the full path and filename into the Copy/Paste Buffer. This would be identical in behavior to Windows 10 Explorer's Shift-Right-Click on a file, and get the option: Copy as Path.

    This is a user convenience I've become well-accustomed to and use it in many ways during the day, my co-workers do also.

    Also, to do the same thing from the Document Properties, Description Sheet, make the File and the Location also able to highlight and copy for the same buffer. It saves having…

  17. Can no longer compare two different PDF documents on different screens

    The new update is a major down grade because all PDFs open in the same display. I have the need to view two different PDF documents on different screens, but Adobe does not support this activity in the currently configured system.

  18. It is essential for the user to be able to disable the default view settings that were set by the creator of the document (often stupidly).

    It is essential for the user to be able to disable the default view settings that were set by the creator of the document (often stupidly).

    In 35+ years of using computer software, this is the dumbest default setting I have ever seen, and it creates serious usability issues for those wishing to use Acrobat for business purposes (i.e. not graphic design/web design/desktop publishing/etc)

    Please IMMEDIATELY ASAP fix this so that the user can disable these default settings and thus view documents effectively instead of spending loads of time fixing display *****-ups caused by the content creator's clumsy use of…

    Hi,

    Thanks for reaching out to us for your concerns.
    You can find the sign-Out button on the right most end of the Tab Bar in Acrobat by clicking on the Image icon for your account.
    Alternatively, you can find the sign out button under Help → Sign out.

    Let me know if that still doesnt solve your concerns ?

  20. Page Thumbnails Is too big
