  1. Acrobat needs an append option... or at least print multiple docs to a Portfolio

    Acrobat needs an append option... or the ability to print multiple docs to a Portfolio.
    All of the competitors have an option to print multiple files and add to single document. Acrobat even allows you to append scans to exiting pdfs. Why is there no option that does not require you to save multiple pdfs and then combine them. Seems easy enough... but when you have users refusing to switch platforms because they email statements to customers all day, the added steps of saving and combining documents would literally add hours a day to their workflow, You are not going…

    • The Zoom In (+) and Zoom Out (-) buttons missing from tool bar.

      The Zoom In (+) and Zoom Out (-) buttons, and the zoom percentage text box disappeared from my toolbar, and I can't get them back. These controls are only accessible through the menus or the undocked floating panel. Re-docking the panel doesn't bring these controls with it. Right-click "Show Select & Zoom Tools" doesn't even list them.

      • Drawing basic shapes in Edit PDF view

        Can we please have the ability to draw real shapes (rectangles,circles, etc) in the Edit PDF view? I know that we can draw these shapes in the Comment view but it's not good enough - doing it that way makes it impossible to adjust certain aspects of the shapes (like, "Send to Back" or "Bring to Front" - those options do not exist in the Comments view, but when you go to the Edit PDF view, shapes that were drawn in the Comments view are untouchable. They are always on Top and obscure anything else that is in the PDF…

          • Inherit Zoom setting for all bookmarks (Court requirements for filing electronic documents)

            The standard setting for a bookmark is Fit Width. The ability to change that to Inherit Zoom or other setting is necessary as the Courts require bookmarked documents with Inherit Zoom setting. It takes 8 clicks per bookmark to change this. There is no way to select all bookmarks and change them all at once or make a permanent setting. I submit Administrative Records with hundreds, sometimes thousands of bookmarks and each one of those has to be individually clicked on and changed - x 8 clicks. Very tedious and time consuming.

            • Acrobat Pro DC: Want "comment" view to open when I open a PDF.

              Please provide a preference so the "Comment" view opens whenever I open a document in Acrobat Pro DC (for Windows).
              This was a valuable feature on previous Acrobat versions and was dropped in Acrobat Pro DC.

              • Shortcut for Create PDF from Scan

                Create shortcut on Home page to "Create PDF from Scan". A lot of users primarily use Acrobat to create pdfs from paper. It shouldn't take 4 mouse clicks to get this done. Also, there is now no way to use keyboard shortcuts to effect a scan. Alt-F-R-S is as far as one can go because the new blue Scan button does not have a keyboard shortcut.

                    • Export to Microsoft Word

                      1. Open a PDF document with Arabic content.

                      2. This PDF was generated from InDesign CC2017. Arabic fonts used is a good True Type and OpenType fonts. Macintosh 10.11.2 / Acrobat DC Build: 15.23.20056.213124

                      3. When exporting to MS Office format, we expect to have a decent conversion as we see with PDFs that has English content.

                      4. I opened resulted Word document in MS. Word on Windows, Text Edit on Mac, Apple Preview. The result varies, but generally Arabic text doesn't convert properly, most words scrambled and fragmented.

                      • Editing or creating new stamps involves too many steps

                        I'm required to fill in a lot of forms with my signature and the date. And since the date always changes, I edit my signature image in PSD and then bring it in to Acrobat and make (or edit) a stamp. But in Acrobat the process of editing a stamp with a new image is grueling! ... 10 steps! (see attached).

                        • Allow larger file sizes than 10 MB

                          The current limit of 10MB seems fairly small in today's age. Previous explanations that the document will be emailed and/or opened on mobile devices that can't handle large files is pretty much moot now, because both can typically handle larger files (say 25-40 MB).

                          • The ability to drag and drop and reorder portfolios

                            Would be great to be able edit the portfolios files layout once saved and move the files around or change the order by dragging them to where you want it rather then by the choices provided I think it was called freeform or something like that. I use to be able to do this with Adobe X, with DC I can't. Really am not liking the latest version of Adobe, wish I could go back to my old version.

                            • Extract Pages - WITHOUT thumbnail view!

                              Trying to select which pages to extract by clicking on thumbnails is next to impossible. Whoever thought of this system has never tried to extract multiple non-consecutive pages from a large document - they all look the same when shrunk to 1 inch tall. Can we just extract by highlighting bookmarks?

                              • Can't save a simple change without having to 'save as' and rename the document

                                If you go into a saved document and change something you cannot save it you have to save it as a completely separate document. i.e. I edit one line to be italicized and hit save and I get a pop up error that states, "The file may be read-only, or another user may have it open. Please save the document with a different name or in a different folder.

                                1) I am the only user
                                2) I created the .pdf document yesterday and did NOT make it read-only.

                                  You are missing a most basic editing feature: The ability to display additions or deletes to text in a pdf, as in Word's "Track Changes". How does a client see my edits to their document? Really! Will this be rectified?

                                  • Edit PDF in Adobe Pro DC online

                                    The online version of Adobe Pro DC needs to have an edit function for existing PDFs. Especially ones that were created in the desktop version of Pro DC. You are unable to continue working on a PDF that you created on the desktop, but need to do an update or edit to that file away from your desktop/office.

                                      Create a setting in Preferences that defaults to:
                                      View | Show | Navigation Panes | Page Thumbnails
                                      so that thumbnails ALWAYS appear in the navigation pane and are never hidden unless done manually.

                                        Hi Frank

                                        Please try the following :
                                        Go to Preferences → Documents and check the option “Restore last view settings when reopening documents”

                                        Please let me know if this works for you.

                                      • Highlighting / Marking Text

                                        Please create an option in Acrobat DC Pro for highlighting and/or marking text without also automatically creating a pop up comment.

                                        • Save/Save new PDF not working

                                          Save. 'Save as'. CMD + S. It doesn't matter how I attempt, I cannot save regular PDFs from inside Acrobat. I have to create an 'optimized PDF' in order to save any of my work inside of Acrobat. I have been loving the functionality of the new Acrobat, but now I can't even save. Very frustrating.
