  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • Editable form fields should keep font properties they were exported with

        When you export an interactive PDF from InDesign, form fields that define a font and size do not carry over to the actual PDF and have to be redefined in Acrobat Pro.

        • Subscription & activation system is very very poor - wasted most of today with it

          I have a fully paid subscription with correct Visa card details - keeps telling me the TRIAL MODE has expired - logged in, logged out a million times - useless, absolutely useless - should get a refund to cover lost salary

          • 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.

            • Clear Form

              The option to clear all the fields on a form has been removed. I have a form that I re-use for various jobs, and now I must manually clear all of the fields in the form in order to fill it out afresh. The deletion of this feature irritates me mightily.

              • crop

                Ctrl Alt T back please (cropping one page or all pages)

                I'm not sure why you took it out, or why you hid it, but I would really like it back! I use it monthly if not weekly for work and it is WAY easier than the new version. Maybe you thought we didn't use it, but we do :-)
                I have Acrobat 11, the full version. Please bring it back.

                thank you

                  • Change Default Font

                    Why can I not change the default font in Adobe Acrobat XI Pro from Minion to what I want? The "J" in Minion looks like an "I" and I have a "J" in my company name which is causing problems because it looks like an "I". I know this has been asked before but why is there no answer. Ugh!

                    • Brilliant idea: let users customize their interface

                      I don't want the forced tools on top, including Home, Tools, Document, and several of the page display icons. I'm a genius and I'll offer a brilliant idea: let users customize their own screen!

                      When the window isn't maximized, there's insufficient room for all the tools, and the default unwanted ones prevent the ones I need from being displayed! When the + and - zoom icons aren't shown, they're also not even listed behind the 3-bullet icon on the far right! This is obviously a bug. It's further difficult since Acrobat refuses to zoom when using Ctrl-scroll on a "high-precision"…

                            • Tab order feature

                              The field view is entirely too small to manually edit tab order. This should either be a separate pane or perhaps a pop-out window. I easily have over 100 fields on one page and it's impossible to order them as I need to (by column, within a section or rows of fields). Default tab ordering structures (By Row, By Column) are not useful here. Need more flexibility to set tab order manually.

                              • Acrobat pro 2017 can`t re-arrange sort order after creating Portfolio

                                when adding another file it goes to the end . In older versions of Acrobat Pro you could sort & re-arrange Portfolio files
                                tried that workaround where you create a new column in view /portfolio details & edit the values to get the files in the proper order sequence .. bit that is a bit of a kludge & really doesn`t affect the printing order of individual Portfolio files or default view when opening
                                version 2017.011.30065 Win 7 32 bit & win 10 64 bit

                                  Hi

                                  You can sort the files based on name or other fields in the Portfolio but that would be just for viewing and will not be saved.
                                  Currently there is no mechanism to re-arrange portfolio files.
                                  We have taken your feature request.

                                  Thanks
                                  Tanvi

                                  With over 250 million speakers, Bengali is the seventh most spoken native language in the world. Unfortunately there is no Bengali language support for OCR in Adobe Acrobat Pro. It would be extremely helpful for Bengali language community if Bengali is added in OCR. Thank you.

                                    • Please add the .msg file type as an option for converting email messages that are saved on a network drive to PDF Portfolio format.

                                      We need the ability to convert folders/subfolders containing .msg files to a PDF Portfolio file. But the .msg extension is not a supported extension for conducting this conversion. The only way to do it is to create a folder in Outlook and drag all of the .msg files into the folder, which isn't practical and is an extra step. All of the other Microsoft file types seem to be supported (docx, xlsx, pptx, etc.), so I'm not sure why the .msg file type isn't supported.

                                      I have spent a couple support sessions with Tanvi Bhalla of Adobe trying to solve…

                                      • 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…

                                        • Missing mouse pointer on external display ACROBAT DC

                                          mouse pointer missing when using external Samsung display.
                                          cursor shows up on resolution 1920-1080 and 3840-2160.
                                          on all other resolutions cursor disappears when acrobat is opened.
                                          works fine on normal mac display.
                                          it works on all resolutions when we change the system preference in MAC and increase the cursor size.

                                          MAC OS HIGH SIERRA 10.13.4
