    Sorry for the inconvenience caused to you.
    You can still achieve your outcome via the thumbnail panel, just right click on thumbnail panel and select ‘Enlarge page thumbnails’.
    Enlarge the thumbnails to your desired size & then proceed with your rearrangement.
    Hope this helps!

  2. Always open a PDF in the same interface w/thumbnails open (lost from Ver X)

    In acrobat X you could set the program to always open PDFs with thumbnails open and page view next to it.

    Tech support told me the added the "feature" of removing that setting. and replacing it with file-by-file interface settings. That's a loss of functionality.

    I get many PDFs from outside sources and I have to integrate pages from them into other documents, for which I need two acrobat windows open with thumbnails showing so I can drag-and-drop pages.
    Thus every single one of those new files I have to manually re-open the thumbnails, because my Acrobat has never see…

    Sorry fot the inconvenience caused to you.

    You can still achieve your desired outcome by following below mentioned steps.
    1) Open a pdf file.
    2)Open another file and drag the tab out such that you have two pdfs in two different windows side by side.
    3) From the thumbnail view for both windows.
    4) Now you can drag your desired page from one file to another and integrate pages.

  5. Won't remember magnification setting

    Adobe Acrobat Pro won't remember magnification setting (fit page) after save and close. If I reopen the file after quitting Acrobat it shows the previous default setting. If I force quit and reopen then the change shows. Seems its caching the old settings unless I force quit to clear.

    You can get your desired results by following the below steps:
    1) Open a pdf
    2) Right click and go to document properties.
    3) click on initial view tab
    4) Select desired ‘Window options’ & save

    After doing the above steps whenever you relaunch the pdf, you’ll get the desired page fit (you selected).

  8. Side by Side PDF files

    I often have two PDFs open at the same time, side by side, for referencing purposes. Now with the Acrobat DC I don't have that choice as both opened files are now in the same 'tabbed' PDF window. I can see the two files 'serially' but not side by side.
    What to do?????

  9. Provide Option to Open at Less Than Full Screen

    Provide Option to Open In Less Than Full Screen Mode.

    I work with multiple documents on may PC screen. Every time I open Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, it fills the whole screen and I have to go fishing for the corner of the screen to shrink it. I'd like to concentrate when I work, not get distracted or annoyed.

    Your support would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    You can change the screen display by trying:
    1) Open Adobe Reader.
    2) Select “Edit” > “Preferences“.
    3) Select “Page Display” on the left pane.
    4) Under the “Default Layout and Zoom” area, change the “Zoom” dropdown menu to a desired setting.

    Hope this works for you.

    Every time I open a pdf from an email, it automatically saves it to the desktop. I then have to delete them and it is difficult finding the latest file...that I didn't want to save in the first place. I want to choose when to save a file.

  13. File remains open behind the scene even when tab closed

    This is a recurring problem with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC: When a file is closed in Acrobat (by closing the corresponding tab), the program doesn't not release the file. As a result, the file cannot be renamed or moved until Adobe Acrobat Pro DC is closed. I have attached an image of the error dialog that pops up. This is on Windows.

    Of course, this is a major inconvenience because I have many tabs open and closing Adobe merely to be able to rename a file that's no longer supposed to be open in Adobe is not something that enhances…

    The error here explains that the PDF is opened in Adobe PRO.

    This could be because the file is still writing the changes made in the PDF.

    Could be that the file is opened from a server location/shared servers. And that the change is waiting to commit.

  14. Need to go back

    Adobe Acrobat Pro DC is way too cumbersome. The old Acrobat Pro 9 was much more user friendly. Too much time is spent trying to find out how to work with this version.

  19. Can't select all instances of an Advanced Search (ctrl+shift+F).

    When doing an advanced search (ctrl+shift+F), you used to be able to search for a string (which it still does) and select all of those instances in the PDF (no longer highlights every instance; need to do one-by-one). This was a quick & useful feature for highlighting all instances of a certain text string in a PDF drawing.

  20. Preference option to minimize RH Tools pane on file open in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC

    In a preferences option such that the Tools pane (on right hand sight of document window) will or will not display on PDF file open.

    his will save time for what I anticipate is a large percentage of users that open PDF documents to read / comment without necessarily using the tools pane on RH side of the window.
