  1. 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. 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?

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

  4. 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.

  7. The new update created inefficiencies for those of us up primarily use Adobe Reader for notating edits. The old tools allowed for highlight-and-type or click-and-type text replacement or insertion and the new version makes you select the tool and then the text/placement EACH time.
    The "replace text" tool isn't even in the quick tools when text is initially highlighted. Personally, I'm very unhappy with the commenting updates and think the old functionality was MUCH better.

  8. 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…

  9. It would be great if comments could display Latex, i.e. rendering and displaying the math properly. Currently commenting with mathematical equations is a pain and just forces us to read the Latex source rather than seeing the rendered math.

    This might be easily added using a service like mathjax.

  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. The old commenting functions worked perfectly well. Put them back please!!!

  11. Go back to the previous layout/version of Reader, this new version is terrible! Just making something new/different doesn't make it better and most software companies seem to be struggling to actually improve their product, so they slap some new stickers on it, move things around and try to convince us that we now have a better product to use - yeah right!

  12. When commenting on files, I frequently switch between "add comment" "replace selected text" "cross out" and other tools. Now that tools are arbitrarily grouped together, it takes wastes time getting to the tool I need, especially if I have a document where I'm making thousands of comments.

    Please make the toolbar customizable as the new changes render the program much less functional. I'll be finding a new commenting program if this isn't fixed.

    Also, the toolbar should be at the top to make it much easier to reach. Please hire a UX person before making changes in the future.

  14. The commenting feature on the new version is not as nice as the older version. It is limited to one type of text and confusing with sizing options. The old features w/ commenting and editing the document should be brought into the newer update to allow flexibility when editing the document.

  15. 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)

  16. 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…

  18. I need to see 2 full pages (A4) up on full screen and still be able to do commenting. Standard 16:9 screen has enough space for that. Just allow to move all menus and panes to either left or right side of the screen.

  19. 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…

  20. 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.
