  1. Always Show Comment Tools

    Please make an Always Show Comments Bar option. I work with the stamp, shape and text box tools on many PDFs daily. I have to open the comments toolbar for each one of them. While it's a small thing to do on one PDF, it gets old fast when it must be done for each of many PDFs every day.

  2. Single Purchase Option for Occasional Users

    I would like to turn a certain PDF into a .jpg and I do not anticipate a need to do this again in the near future. Seems a little out of touch to expect anyone to pay $15.00 for a month and “potentially” hundreds of dollars to use a service only once or twice in a year.
    On your most economical plan, Adobe receives about half of a dollar per day and allows an unlimited number of document conversions , as well as other services.

    Adobe should offer an alternative payment schedule of $1.00 per document,
    up to, $3.00 for…

  4. show list of text higlighted

    Please, make a side tool to show list of text higlighted ( when we can read the text highlighted too ). it would be great if this list was ordered by pages and show page and chapter.

    This option would permit me study better documents with highlighted text and comments... it would be perfect.

  5. Don't copy formatting when copy/pasting into comments

    When copy/pasting text into comments it appears that formatting is kept. This means, for example, if you have dark mode on and you copy some text and paste it in a comment, the text will be white when in comment edit view. When the comment view view is active and in the main reader this extra formatting is suppressed (so the text is black).
    Because the formatting is suppressed for display and cannot be edited in the comment editor, it should not be kept in the comment editor at all.

  6. share

    Option to disable "Share" and "Sign in" buttons.

    "Share" is an obvious distraction when trying to read PDFs, since it's a bright blue call-to-action.

  7. Horizontal AND Vertical resizing of the text fill

    When adding multiple lines of text, there is an ability to adjust the horizontal spacing (blue circle / double arrows).

    Can you please add the ability to adjust VERTICAL spacing?

  8. DocumentCloud.Abobe.com Does Not Work In Chrome

    Adobe is using old authentication where Chrome does not allow for pasting/loading sharable PDF links to Chrome -- Firefox still allows this old authentication, so I am only able to edit sharable PDF links in Firefox. Error messages are below:

    A cookie associated with a cross-site resource at http://assets.adobedtm.com/ was set without the SameSite attribute. A future release of Chrome will only deliver cookies with cross-site requests if they are set with SameSite=None and Secure.

  9. Make it so it can be opened by other people, or make it free to convert into a USABLE format.

    I am trying to use this for my Eagle Project, but that was a bad idea, since no one else can open the files and I can't convert them without spending money on a very basic thing. Now I've got time invested which I would lose if I swapped to another, better product. I understand your business model is to get people with annoying free stuff so they buy the good ones, but hot dang is this especially bad.

  10. Formidable

    J’ai mis formidable et ça passe comme par miracle et pas résiliation impossible
    La malhonnêteté est au rendez vous . Comme beaucoup d’autres je ne peux résilier mon abonnement gratuit d’une semaine et demain date limite je vais être facture de 10,99€.
    Je vous préviens : si vous le faites ( et j’enregistre ce texte) je porte plainte pas pour moi seulement mais aussi pour les autres .
    Vous avez l’obligation de fournir les outils de résiliation en temps et en heure et pas après nous avoir arnaqué.
    Dépêchez vous de satisfaire cette requête .

  11. remove the reply box from a comment

    Can you remove the reply box from a comment box, it gets in the way of the comment itself. Have the reply bit as part of the right hand side pane and not on the comment box itself

  12. Hovering over a sticky note: display its text consistently

    When a mouse hovers over a sticky note, its content should normally be displayed in a popup.

    However, whether it will actually appear depends on the direction from where the mouse approaches the sticky note.

    See the video for an illustration: https://youtu.be/3RXThFqGhDY.

    I suggest that the content be displayed no matter how a user moves the mouse onto the note.

  13. OCR tool for scans that recognizes books scanned open and splits the pages into their seperate sheets to optimize reading electronically.

    I keep getting scans from teachers of things that i am supposed to read but they scan them with the book open and it is super obnoxious to read. I am trying to figure out how to split the pages in half but the split function seems to split by pages not literally split the PDF in half by OCR ing the page and seeing the middle where the crease is separate. Its weird that the adobe scan app for my phone is better than acrobat dc
