  3. Side by Side Synced View

    I just found a couple of comments on Side-by-Side viewing that appear to have been blown off by people that don't understand the need for the Feature.... However, I do recall doing it in the past, so I would think it should be considered a BUG since it did exist years ago.

    I haven't needed to have two PDFs open and synced in a while, so I was very shocked to find that I could not do this anymore. Seriously considered digging out one of my really old versions and converting the PDFs back to that version.

    So to the…

  6. Interactive PDF functionality broken after update?

    Hi! Since this September update, Interactive PDFs are functioning correctly on Macs. Rollovers don't work, everything is lagging like crazy. Initially I thought it may be an indesign export issue, but opening previously working older interactive PDFs (that worked perfectly) the problem seems to be an Acrobat issue.
    This has been tested on a number of different Macs through the studio - iMacs, MacBooks of various builds, years, operating systems and capabilities - all with the same Acrobat version and same problem. Any ideas?

  9. Reading preferences

    Under Reading Preferences, "Screen reading options", there should be an option to "Do not read pages". Right now we only have 3 options available (please see screenshot).

  10. Page Number Quick Box

    Page Number Navigation Tool only allows you to type in 8 digits? I have a semi complex document I have made into a PDF. The document required longer page labeling numbers example...4001-278 and then **4001-278 and *4001-278. Although the Page Number Navi Tool displays the pages just fine Adobe DC pro does not allow me to type more than 8 digits into the Page Navi tool??????

  11. Syncronized scroll

    Would be great to have native support for syncronized scrolling - so if i have two+ open PDFs, can scroll pages syncronized, i.e. hit Page Down key and both PDFs go down a page, currently have to click in one PDF, page down, then click second PDF and page down - very cumbersome

  12. FIT WIDTH/FIT VISIBLE works one way only with mixed size documents (shrinks pages only)

    I often works with mixed size documents. I have document set on Fit Width or Fit Visible and it is at about 80%. Then I hit a page in landscape, and it is still Fit Width or Fit Visible but my view is at about 30%. Then I scroll down to regular portrait, and I am still at Fit Width or Fit Visible but I remain at 30% so I have to MANUALLY adjust it. I usually pick the other of the two - Fit Width or Fit Visible - and I am back at 80%. Can you make Fit…

  13. Enhance the open document preferences

    Add a preference setting to automatically open Page Thumbnails when a document is opened. Currently this is not an option. Heavy document processing would be made much less cumbersome if this option were available.

  14. Allow the View>Page Display>ShowCoverPageInTwoPageView to be on by default.

    In the prior version, this option was on by default. Now I have to manually select it in the menu, for every document I open. This should be a selection in the Settings area, to enable this view as default or not.

  15. June 2021 Acrobat update won't copy/paste special characters on Mac

    My Acrobat Pro was set to auto update and now suddenly I can't copy/paste special characters.
    For example special letters in Spanish, French, German, Danish etc. Instead of letters it just leaves blank spaces in the document I paste into - no matter which application.
    I have tested this on three different computers now (Mac), and they all have the same issue (Acrobat version 2021.005.20048).
    I tested three other Macs with older versions and they worked fine, like mine did before the update.

    The above was tested on Macs and it does not matter if it is Mac OS Catalina…

    Environment:acrodist X,2017 or Pro DC 2021, over win10-64bit

    Recreation steps:

    2/ Opened Distiller (I checked on Acrodist X,2017 and Pro DC 2021) and change Settings-“Edit Adobe PDF Settings”-Pages Form 2-3 (you can use attached range2-3.joboptions [
    renamed with extension .pdf])
    3/ Drag the 7ET-4593311000p.PS to the distiller and see the distiller Crash.

  18. Expand the metadata displayed for documents when you select a connected library in Acrobat Pro DC

    Pre-existing document metadata that is used for documents stored in SharePoint libraries should be useable by the home section of Acrobat when I select on that connected library. Currently when I select on a connected library, whether it is a SharePoint library, or a OneDrive library the only metadata displayed on my documents is Title, Modified & Size (see attachment).

    These are not helpful when I need to filter and sort through hundreds of documents to check out and update one. I would like the ability to customize my displayed metadata columns and to filter out documents that I may…

  19. "Find" (CNTRL + F) highlight color needs to be more visible

    When I search for text on the page, the "highlight" that indicates the presence of that word on the page is IMPOSSIBLE to see. We need some way of really making text STAND OUT. For, example, in the image below I've searched for the word "chair." Can YOU see it? (hint: 22.18)

  20. [Feature request] An option to invert currently selected pages

    In 'Edit' menu, under 'Deselect All', please add an 'Invert Selection' option which would deselect currently selected pages and select currently non-selected pages. This is easier than typing page numbers manually.

    Thank you for reading!
