  1. Why is there a problem every time there is an automatic update to Acrobat DC? I now can't print to pdf or save as.

    Mi idea is....take more care, and check properly before issuing an automatic update. Is a product that works too much to ask? It's like having a washing machine that receives an unwanted, unscheduled service that stops it working every time after the service engineer leaves. Adobe used to be so good in this respect....what happened??

  2. When adding text to a page, I am only able to enter one character at a time

    When I am typing in a text box, I am only able to enter one character before it won't let me enter anything else. To continue typing, I have to click out of the text box and back into it. Even then it will only let me type one character before I have to repeat the process.

  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…

  4. Saving a File with Multiple PDFS Open

    Saving a file with multiple pdfs open. The idea would be similar to Sheets in Excel.

  5. Adobe Sign should go straight to more options

    Adobe Sign should go straight to the More options pop up. It should at least be an options selection to always go to More Options first. I should not have to request it every single time.

  6. Add option to open documents in presentation mode

    It is very common to share PDF documents during a presentation, and Acrobat Reader always attempts to open the document with large toolbars that interfere with the presentation. It is not sufficient to be able to set a given document to open in full screen, as whether or not a document needs to be opened in full screen depends on where it's being opened from. This needs to be available as an Open Action like page number or zoom level.

  8. Acrobat Pro DC Bug - deleting a range of pages leaves last one undeleted

    I have a 40-page InDesign document with 2 sections and I'm using a different section prefix for both. I export the full document as PDF and clone it, then I just delete the 20 unwanted section/pages from each. However, upon deleting the continuous pages, for some reason it leaves the last page undeleted and gives an error saying "One or more pages are in use and could not be deleted". This has never happened before. Of course I have to click on the page's thumbnails to select them for deletion. It looks like a very annoying bug.

    I've uploaded the…

  10. Files update when saved over and still open in Acrobat.

    If a user saves an ai file as pdf (for example) and a "view pdf after saving" is selected, the pdf opens in Acrobat - but, the file DOES NOT update if the pdf is left open and the file is saved over. I personally do this probably 20+ times a day as a I tweak a file.

    Acrobat could have a setting "update open files." Many of us use acrobat as a final visual proof before sending to clients, currently we have to close, open/find to view files after save-overs.

  11. Acrobat Pro DC on Windows PC - Exit program on final tab close

    For Windows PC, please provide a General Preference Option to close/exit the Acrobat Pro DC program when closing the only open tab/document.

    We open a document then review, save and close it. The program window remains open thus blocking the desktop and forcing us to exit the program manually. While that sounds like a minor inconvenience or inconsequential, in reality its very frustrating and time consuming. We consider it to be a Quality of Life issue that disrupts workflow processes and would like to see it resolved.

    An option to "Minimize window on final document/tab exit and maximize window…

  12. BUG - Keyboard activation of comment tools not working

    Typing into the text while the comment menu is open usually activates the relevant comment tools (eg. striketrough, add text etc.) but this function seems to be broken since the last update.
    Working like this – having to choose a new tool each time from the menu (three mouse clicks as opposed to no clicks) – is highly frustrating when you use Acrobat for heavy professional editing jobs.
    This is my main use of acrobat. Please fix asap.

  13. Let users disable "type to create comment" when Commenting: it breaks Single-Key Accelerators

    When I'm reviewing my highlights in the Comments pane and want to highlight something, keyboard clicking U instead creates a new comment. When I first select something and then click U.. it's striken through instead of highlighted? That is the opposite of what I'm trying to achieve!

    I have to first cursor-select the Highlight tool to be able to properly keyboard switch again between other tools. I understand that giving U different functions in different contexts makes sense but this very much seems to be a bug.

  14. iPad OS: Darkmode - turn off black & white mode on images

    If you're using the darkmode, all the images turning to black and white. It is unpractical if you're reading a paper with some color-coded diagrams in it.
    Suggestion: implement an option, do change the behavior of the darkmode.

  15. Microsoft Edge overwriting default pdf program

    Microsoft Edge overwrites the default pdf program no matter how many times you change it back. You cannot even delete Edge to get it to stop doing it. Microsoft denied that it is possible for their program to change my default app without my permission when I contacted their tech support. Adobe should sue Microsoft. This is very frustrating, especially when you paid for the program and Microsoft can do this without your permission.

  17. Increase document size for Adobe Sign to be greater than 10GB

    We need to be able to sign documents greater than 10GB, we were unable to sign our Corporation tax return and large legal agreements. It is not appropriate to only send the signature page (which we would need to purchase another Adobe product to delete the pages)

  18. Bugs and problems of editing

    Software language recognition supports a handful of languages and for example does not support Persian language, does not even recognize some advanced mathematics symbols and has difficulty displaying or editing; In addition, the internal converter of Adobe Acrobat Pro software has important and serious shortcomings, especially by converting PDF to Word without any problems.

  20. Bookmarks are not carried over from word if document is less than four pages

    Links are not working after converting a Word document to a PDF. After much troubleshooting, the cause of the issue is the number of pages. Four or more pages works as expected, three or less does not.

    To reproduce the issue, create a Table of Contents at the top of the document that links to the Headers of each section. Then Save As Adobe PDF. The expected result is that the Table of Contents will still contain links to the Headers of each section as bookmarks in the new PDF. The observed result is that the links are broken if…
