  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…

  3. Stop including McAfee in the installer.

    Ditch McAfee. Windows defender, Malware Bytes, and Symantec are what I use, and I hate having to uninstall McAfee after accidentally installing it.

  4. Free Form Highlighter - Straight Line Option

    When highlighting scanned documents, would be very helpful to have a key stroke option to force the tool to highlight a straight line. Acrobat will currently do this automatically for short/very straight segments. Please consider adding option to hold down a key (e.g., shift, ctrl, etc.) while using the tool to force a straight line rather than truly free form - which can be very messy and unprofessional in appearance depending on the context.

  8. 件名:「Acrobat Reader DC」におけるショートカットキーについて

    意見ないし要望:
    以下の機能を担うショートカットキーを、新たに設けて欲しい。
    また、それに当たって、当方の希望するショートカットキーの設定も、併せて例示しておく。

    1.単ページ表示 : S キー
    2.見開き表示 : D キー (理由:上記「S キー」と位置的に近い)
    3.全画面表示 : F キー
    4.全画面表示解除 : F キー または Esc キー

    これらは、おそらくは、こと「閲覧」の際においては、割合良く使うものとなるだろうと思われるので、なるべく「ワンボタン操作」にしておいて欲しい。

    ――――――――――――――――――――

    理由ないし詳細:
    フルスクリーンで表示している状態のままで、「単ページ表示」と「見開き表示」とを切り替えたい、と思っている。
    また、「ウィンドウ表示」と「フルスクリーン(全画面表示)」とを切り替える、といった事も、閲覧の際の操作としては、割と良く有る事だと思われる。
    これらについて、ショートカットキーの新設を願う。

    私見だが、これらは、こと「閲覧」といった用途においては、かなり基本的なものであるように思われる。
    こういった「当たり前」ともいえる機能が、未だに整備されていない、とかいった事は、
    当該ソフトウェアが、こと「閲覧」を主目的としているユーザーに対して、配慮を欠いている、と言わざるを得ない。

    また、これも私見だが、当該ソフトウェアの使途としては、おそらくは9割方が、いわゆる「読み専」であろうと思われる。
    文書作成(書き専?)などの使途は、全体の内の1割程度に過ぎないのではないか、と思われる。
    それらの比率から見ても、いわゆる「読み専」とされるようなユーザーに対するフォローは、もう少し配慮されて然るべきであるように思われる。

    あと、これは少し発展的な意見となるかもしれないが、
    この際、「読み専」用に特化したようなアプリを、新規に開発もしくは配布なさっても良いのかもしれない。
    実際、当該アプリは、「読み専」としては不必要である機能が多過ぎる。
    その結果として、アプリとしての「軽快性」や「堅牢性」「簡易性」などが損なわれてしまっては、本末転倒である。
    よって、この際、「読み専」用に特化したような、簡易版ともいえるアプリを、Adobe自ら、新規に作成なさっては如何かと思う。
    上記にても有るように、その使途の9割方は、おそらく「読み専」である。
    想定されるユーザー数ないしニーズは、充分に大きい、と思われる。
    こういった重要な案件を、「他社任せ」などとしてはならない、と思う。
    差し出がましいかもしれないが・・・、
    これを「Acrobat Reader Light」とでも、仮に命名しておく。
    ご参考までに・・・。(笑)

  9. Allow users to change colour of search highlighter

    When I use Adobe the CTRL F search function of Adobe Acrobat DC, I often find it hard to see where on the page the item I'm searching for is being highlighted. The highlighter colour that Adobe uses is a light grey/blue and it simply doesn't stand out enough. Very often, I'm searching for a single character and the documents I'm proofreading such as reports and brochures often have a coloured background, making it even harder to spot that pesky highlighter! It seems so simple to me that there should be a way for users to opt for a bright…

  10. Comment-filter is buggy?

    The comment-filtering tool isn’t working as it used to. Before this issue, the comments I marked/checked as ‘completed’ would hide automatically when I set the comments-filter to ‘none’. I could then easily see how many comments there left unsolved. Now I have to constantly “manually refresh” the filter to get the checked comment to hide as I am working though the document.

    By “manually refreshing” I mean go into the filter menu, change filter to ‘none’ and ‘completed’, click use, then go back to the filter menu and choose only ‘none’ and click use. This is a really wierd change…

  11. Use alt / ctrl keys to force freehand marker instead of cursor-based highlighter

    When the default Highlight text tool (marker icon) is applied on document with inconsistent text (either poorly generated text scattered across page, math formulae etc.) the highlighted area does not look good or even does not make sense. Of course, I can manually click&switch to Drawing tool (pencil icon) and mark that area by hand but it can be set to other color, thickness, and opacity. I wish I could switch between these tools using ALT, CTRL of SHIFT keys for rapid commenting (while keeping the same color, thickness and opacity - ust like if the Highlight text tool is…

  12. When saving PDFs show "save to previous location"

    When using 'Save As' for PDF's = previous versions of Adobe defaulted to the last save location, now it defaults to the main library every time and I have to do multiple "clicks" to save it to the file or folder that I want. If I am saving multiple pdf's to the same location at one time - this would save time. I don't want to 'pin' folder, as I may save to a different folder for another group of PDFs.

  13. Allow to choose own highlight colors from color wheel

    I color code my highlights and would really appreciate having an option to choose any color from a color wheel or hex code rather than having to choose from the 12 predetermined colors in the app. The iPad app is even more limited with only 7 colors to choose from.

  14. 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.

    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.

  17. Comments missing on opening

    Steps to reproduce the issue :
    Happens in certain documents, not sure why.

    Environment:
    Adobe Acrobat Pro DC 22.001.20169

    Expected result
    If the document has 33 comments, I expect to see them all on opening, in the comments panel.

    Observed result
    On opening, only a fraction of comments is listed. E.g.: 3 comments (although the document has 33 comments instead).

    If I scroll down through all pages, the missing comments gradually appear, and the number of comments (on top of the comments panel) gets updated accordingly, while scrolling down.

    The comments' status doesn't seem to make a difference (whether they…

  18. Make 'Comment' icon and 'Add sticky note' icon different. They currently are both the same (speech bubble)

    Hi, I want to suggest that you make the 'Comment' icon and the 'Add sticky note' icon different. They currently are both the same (speech bubble). And, even more confusing (to me at least), is that, if you click the "Add sticky note" button and add a note, the new note is colored yellow--and that new note now looks just like the OTHER icon ('Comment'), which is also colored yellow. For those of us who mostly use visual cues in software, this is confusing. It's highly unusual in good software today, to have the same icon on the screen in…

  19. "Tools Pane" menu has GOT TO GO.

    I'm in my web browser, and like 99.99% of other applications, you know what's on the right side of the window? A SCROLL BAR.

    Whoever at Adobe decided that you guys are so special that you could break this rule by adding a menu...needs to be shot.

    At the very least give us an option to move it to a NORMAL menu position for cripes sake.

    But this is horrible. Are you guys sharing UI dev people with Facebook or something?
