  1. 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.

    • Edit default split pages number or set it permanently to 1

      We often need to split a document into a single file per page. We almost NEVER split a document by every two pages.

      Having to edit this number each time is redundant. I would like the option to either edit the default "split by" setting (and additionally the output settings) or alternatively have the default be 1 page.

        • Acrobat Pro DC (AcroCEF) eating up 21GB of memory and CPU time on Mac

          When macs left unattended and Acrobat pro running the application increasing consumes CPU time and memory. Coming in the next morning my machine is extremely slow to respond. This is happening on two mac machines I use.. one Sierra 10.12.6 and one High sierra. Both machine regularly use MS office applications and Saffari and Chrome browsers. Both utilize Mcafee. Acrobat will not close unless being forced to do so.

          • 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?

            • It is so slow it is almost unusable.

              Adobe Acorbat Pro DC is so slow it is almost unusable. I am ready to find an other .pdf creator. I have tried every fix found in the forums and nothing has substantially helped.

              • 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. :)

                • Editing Text

                  Hi

                  I produce this pdf file, so that at a later date i can change the date. I've selected the edit tool in adobe pro and when i start to type in the date i want, the text moves from the bottom of the page to half way up the page. (as you will see from the pdf file attached)

                  I am doing this on a windows 7 machine.

                  On the other pages i dont have a problem. The pages of pdf are set up the same way, so I'm unclear as to what the problem is with this page.

                    • Set a default location when saving or opening files

                      It would be great if we could manage the default location of the directory that adobe auto opens to save a file to. And for opening previously saved files as well.

                          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

                          I have CC full suite and from the day I had to install Adobe Acrobat Pro DC I have been unable to print locally from any open PDF. I have tried multiple fixes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled several times. I've updated the printer drivers and had my IT support look at it. And now that this program is embedded in everything, I can't event go back to Acrobat XI. If I'm lucky I can export the PDF as an image or word document and print from there, but if I'm looking at document that's large that is just simply…

                            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.

                              • 2 steps to add check to comments - Build: 19.8.20071.303822

                                In previous versions of Acrobat I was able to Check a comment (typically once I had made an edit to my InDesign doc). By setting the filter to show unchecked comments only I was systematically able to go through a set of clients edits. In the new version of Acrobat you have removed the ability to just click to check a comment. I now have to open a drop down menu and select it. This is really annoying when you have a large document with over 100 comments (as I regularly do).

                                Please return the simple check box to the…

                                    Hi,

                                    Thanks for Reaching out to us for your concerns.
                                    We have not removed the zoom tools from the main toolbar and those are already there.

                                    I assume you might have undocked the Toolbar so you may be getting a black floating window over the document area which would be having the zoom tools.

                                    I would request you to kindly Dock it back to the Main toolbar by clicking the rightmost icon from that floating window.

                                    Also, if this is not the case i would request you to kindly do a right click on your main toolbar and select “Reset Toolbar” from the context menu. (This way your main toolbar will get back to the default state which would anyways be having the Zoom tools.

                                    Let me know if this fixes your concern

                                    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.

                                    • Acrobat DC (Pro and Strandard) crashes because of memory usage

                                      When using large files, like the attached one, Acrobat crashes when it reaches a memory usage of more than aprox. 3.500 MB in Windows Task Manager.
                                      I could reproduce the issue, just by opening the page miniatures and a little scolling. It happens on different computers with 8 or 16GB RAM installed and with different Acrobat versions (DC Standard, DC Pro, XI Standard)
                                      The reason for the memory usage are probably the pictures in these files.

                                      • 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"

                                        • Acrobat DC Professional is horrible

                                          Setup is clunky and refuses to accept preference changes. I have found the primary use for Acrobat is to edit documents easily. Acrobat professional is a new layer of stupid that makes this acrobat more difficult an frustrating to use. Good job Adobe, good job.
