  1. OCR Messing up highlight and free form tool.

    Behavior is on Windows 7 | Acrobat Pro XI version 11.0.23

    When running OCR (English and Italian) previous drawing markups (Free Form Tool) and highlights are corrupted. Free forms were rotated 90 degrees and translated, while highlights were moved up about 2.5 lines. I attached a word document with screenshots of the behavior. This behavior messed up highlighting work by a professor at Indiana University.

  2. I have continuously had a problem with Adobe Acrobat crashing after I have added scanned files. I paid to update to newer version not help.

    Adobe Acrobat Pro crashes often when scanning. This is an inherent problem with Adobe that they need to fix as I upgraded to newer version to avoid this and the problem is just as prevalent.

  3. Activate/Deactivate Menu option

    I think it could be nice to click on the same button to deactivate the previously selected option. For instance, I selected the Highlighter to highlight some words. I though it was the same button to quit this state, as the same interactivity gate. Instead of that, I needed to go on the Arrow symbol to deselect the Highlighter.

  4. Thumbnail size: set larger default

    It would be really great to open documents with much larger thumbnails, similar to how Apple's Pages software shows them.

    I download a PDF of a daily newspaper, which often has nearly 200 pages. I'm only interested in a couple of sections, so I like to quickly scan the thumbnails.


    • Currently I can increase the thumbnail size, but it's a multi-step process that needs to be repeated several times.


    • Enlarged thumbnails display text in a rough, jagged way, it should be much smoother.


    • When scrolling thumbnails with a mouse, enlarged thumbnails float horizontally in a really annoying way. I'd like…

  5. Placing Monospaced Text in Relevant Forms Need to Resize More Sanely

    I'm having to fill out some forms with the manual text placements and I noticed placing mono-spaced text is not really graceful to do.

    Feels like it would help if it'd scale starting from the leftmost part of the bounding box for the first character instead of the center of the first character as seen

  6. BUG REPORT - Cannot Find or Create Font - "GHWQWB+Tahoma"

    Suddenly, when reopening or trying to 'save as', the text I added comes up in all 'dots' - that's all - dots across each text box. I have to 'edit' each text box changing the font to something else and save it again. This started last week! WHY! It's making me nuts!

  8. Add .xlsm and .xlsb extenstions to your Policies registries

    In an Acrobat Pro DC PDF document, links to .xlsm and .xlsb spreadsheets won't open. Adobe needs to add those extensions to their Policies Registry keys and the problem will be solved! Please fix before next release! It's a super easy fix!

  9. Too difficult to re-learn

    Should have just make some tweeks to older version. This is like learning an entirely new software. Developers need to leave well enough alone!

  12. Add a setting that allows for deletion of the recent files list at the time of exiting the program.

    Created a setting allows for the deletion of the recent files list when exiting Acrobat. The recent files list gives persons the ability to access files without having to go through security and can display private information depending on the naming convention used.

  13. Panel placement

    Would like to have to choice to have the panel on the bottom rather then the side or top. Could another option be added.

  14. I love Acrobat... at least I did. I've been using Acrobat for years. I hate DC!

    Please give me back the stand alone program I can buy and install on my PC.

    DC hangs more than it works. I really do dislike it. I keep going back to my old PC so I can work with the installed version 10 It works, first time every time!

  15. Group Layers and manipulate more than one laer at a time.

    Currently layers list as one group when created with AutoCad. Microstation will create a layer hierarchy with referenced files.

    The ability to group layers from within Acrobat would be very useful, a drag and drop facility like the method for bookmarks would make this an infinitely more useful file.

    Also, the ability to manipulate more than one layer at a time. Currently setting a default state needs to be applied individually. To be able to apply states across multiple layers, ie on and off or default state would be an enormous time saver.

  17. Fill and Sign Good Suggestion!

    When you create your Digital Signature thru the Fill and Sign Wizard that say you like how your first name looks but then when you get to your last name and you make a mistake that instead of clicking the Clear Button to start over that you could Click a Button that says Undo instead as this would really save a lot of time in the long run being that it takes quite a while and too long at that to do that if you like it to look just right both ways both first and last name.

  18. Cut, copy and paste option to move pages within a pdf file

    It will be very useful to have a cut/copy and paste option for moving pages within a pdf file. Currently, you can only drag pages around and this can be a little bit messy especially if working on a large file.

  19. Present all pages as thumbnail in full screen

    It would be great to be able to view all pages on screen at the same time, as big as possible, during a full screen presentation. Think moodboard or contact sheet. I am a graphic designer and for my presentations, I create a final page that is all of my designs as large thumbnails on a page so that I can discuss all of them. Stepping it up a notch would be allowing the user to click on one of the pages and it getting bigger than the rest.
