  1. Is your QuickBooks version supported with Windows 10? In case you have updated or planning to upgrade to windows 10, then the major question that arises is that whether your QuickBooks version is compatible with Windows 10 or not. Windows 10 does not support every version of QuickBooks.

  2. When the Comment tool is open and highlighting is selected to change its color or when the Properties toolbar is used to change highlighting color, one matrix of 40 predefined colors appears. With the new interface, when the Comment toolbar is closed, a different matrix with 18 predefined colors appears. Two matrix formats makes assigning consistent colors for filtering or other tasks a real pain. Change the new pop-up to include all 40 colors and the "Other Color..." option.

  3. I've been using the new edition of Adobe Acrobat Pro for a month or so now, convinced the new layout woudl become intuitive and better; it hasn't. The revised version is very very frustrating. In addition, I'm now having trouble with Distiller producing quality pdf's. Distiller often produces documents without OCR and I can't even highlight text. I've found Microsoft's print to pdf feature to work much more reliably. This is a real shame. Adobe used to have realiable straightforward products (e.g. Reader and Distiller). Now, they've been revamped and, frankly, don't work well. Not sure if Adobe has a…

  4. When opening PDFs from various sources, I often receive a JS pop up stating "This pdf form requires a newer version of Adobe Acrobat...", in spite of having the latest version of Reader (23.008.20555 as of this post) installed. There are often multiple (as on 3-7+) popup dialogs that repeat this message whether OK or Cancel is pushed (the only difference being OK opens a browser window to redownload what I already have).

    The PDFs in question are often generated by 3rd parties, E.G. Tax preparation software online. One such recent example used iText 2.0.7, which uses PDF version 1.5…

  5. I have been disappointed with the update to the layout. The pages are the right hand side. As a left handed person, I often use a touch screen or key strokes for many things. It wasn't great at the top, but I'm left handed, I'm used to adapting. The right hand navigation is disappointing. :( Please test more with lefties before you change things! Thank you!

  6. I haven't seen anything as catastrophic as the new interface in years, it will be **** to work with this.
    The problem is the new floating menu for "Add comment". The menu, if activated, used to be on top of the page, so you could access everything with one click.

    Now with the new menu, I have to laboriously access everything with at least two clicks. It is beyond annoying and time-consuming.

    I am an editor and I work on lage pdfs which may have hundreds of comments and corrections. This will add to my workload no end. What on…

  8. Whoever dreamed up this mess should be fired immediately. It's confusing and I can't find anything. Give us the option to go back to the tried and true previous interface.
    Can't customize the top toolbar among so many other annoyances. Will be switching to another of the many free PDF alternatives.

  9. Dear Adobe Support,

    This is to request a feature that would greatly enhance the usability and efficiency of your PDF readers. I am referring to the back and forward buttons that would allow users to navigate through the links and bookmarks within a PDF document.

    As a researcher, I often read scientific papers that have thousands of links to equations, figures, tables, references, and other sections. These links are very useful for understanding the content and following the logic of the paper. However, without the back and forward buttons, it is very frustrating and time-consuming to navigate through these links.…

  10. With the older version of Adobe reader in the commenting feature, I could highlight some text and start typing and it would automatically cross the text out and allow me to type to replace it. Now I have to manually select the function any time I want to replace text.

    Same with selecting text and deleting it.

    The update is not user friendly, and it's now taking me a lot longer to complete my proofreading jobs.

  13. Version 2023.008.20470 64-bit, Windows 11, Using new Reader interface.

    Summary: When the zoom +/- buttons are used, if a manually entered zoom value was used, that value is lost.

    Impact: The only way (known to the user) to bring up the zoom value entry field is to first press either the zoom +/- buttons. When this is done, it also moves to the next zoom preset and you lose your custom zoom value.

    Expected result: There is some way to view your zoom setting without changing it. Also, if a custom zoom setting has been entered manually, the zoom +/-…

  14. I work with 'White text on Black' option. But often, the content is not readable and I have to temporarily turn off the 'Use High Contrast colours for document text' option and turn it back again. Presently, I have to access the option through Edit->Accessibility->Setup Assistant->Next button and click 'Next' another three times each time I need to change the setting.

    Please provide an easy way to quickly turn on/off the High Contrast option? I am using Acrobat Reader 2023.008.20421 on Windows 11 Home

  15. Add Option to remove tool panes by default at startup. They are far to big and take up ridiculous amount of space,As well as having to constantly minimize them.

  17. Please see this discussion:

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/text-default-highlight-bug/m-p/14318127#M443956

    TL;DR: Default highlight color should not change every time highlight color is changed for some text

  19. PLEASE have more space at the top of the window so I can click and drag to move the window around my screen. If you have many tabs open, there is basically no area you can click on to do that now.

  20. Allow a preference for "left-handed mode". When using a tablet, it would be much more convenient to have the scroll bar and side panel on the left-hand side as I am left-handed and using a stylus to annotate.
