  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • Delete a layer feature

        Delete a layer option is missing in a layers pannel. Would be very usefull feature for preparing PDFs for print with correct layer content. Possible workarounds (delete layer content + merge) are too complicated and not safe for prepress.

        • 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).

          • Adding Tools to the Tool Bar Process is Just Plain Crazy

            Should be able to drag and drop tools you use often to the customized tool bar at the top of the document. Why does it have to be so hard to do that?

            • 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.

              • highlighter tool

                1) need a way to click highlight over and over w/o having to reselect the highlighter tool
                2) need a way to go from a selected tool (stamp, highlighter, etc) to hand or select tool quickly (example: dbl right click mouse)

                • Adobe Sign - Invidual Plan

                  I believe that in invidual plan there should be: Branding, Social authentication, Advanced forms, Leanguages and Advanced Workflows.

                  By my opinion it could save lots and time and problems for Adobe Sign's users. :)

                  • 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…

                    • Make Accessible PDF's accessible.

                      The process to make a PDF accessible is overly complicated and buggy. Usually while doing this, something will go wrong and the only way to fix it is to close the document, open it again, do the same process and hope it works. This process should be as simplistic as possible so everything can be accessible.

                        Hi Joel,
                        Thanks for bringing this issue to our notice. We discussed about this particular issue and we do not have any plans to work on it in immediate future. However, we’ll have it in our radar and might revisit at an appropriate time in future.

                        Thanks

                      • Please add functionality of changing checkmark color in Fill & Sign.

                        Fill & Sign checkmark colour. Please add functionality to change checkmark color. I review documents for compliance and like the checkmark feature, but it would be more useful if I could change the colour. I tried changing it through properties like I do for the highlight function, but it doesn't work.

                        • Format Painter

                          It would be very helpful if Acrobat Pro were to have a format painter feature like Microsoft's. As it is, one has to go through all the form fields and change them manually one at a time after Auto doesn't deliver what is desired.

                          • 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.

                                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.

                                    Hi,

                                    Thanks for reaching out to us for your concerns.

                                    Can you please let me know the exact version number of Adobe Acrobat DC that your are working on ?

                                    I Tried this at my end and Drag drop in Page Thumbnails panel in a pdf / across pdfs is working fine for me.

                                    Also i would request you to kindly share with me a screen recording video of the steps that you are trying to do here ?

                                    You can send me that at ajain@adobe.com

                                    Thanks
                                    Ayush Jain

                                  • Combining Separate PDFs in Order of Selection.

                                    How would you like the feature to work? When selecting multiple pdf's to combine I'd like adobe to arrange them in order of selection (Based on which item was selected first). Nitro PDF does that.

                                    Why is this feature important to you? It saves time when you extract pages from emails and you select each in an order you want them to be combined. Otherwise you end up dragging each selection to arrange while creating the binder.

                                    • When a PDF is opened within the browser, add a button on the toolbar to open in the full app

                                      We need to set PDFs to open in the browser, however, sometimes the user needs to edit these (such as using Fill & Sign). In this case, the user clicks Fill & Sign, and they are told to download the file and open it.

                                      It would be far easier if the toolbar that's visible when a user opens a PDF in the browser has a simple button where they could open it in whatever app they had set as the default for PDFs (Acrobat Professional, or Reader). Perhaps a button called "Open in Acrobat"

                                        • allow printing of all data in text box even if it exceeds the amount visible on the display.

                                          there needs to be a way to print all of the text in a text box without using auto font size. in auto font size the font shrinks as more text is added. this is not readable. all of the text should print even if it is more than is visible in the text box on the display.
