  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. 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.

  4. Colour-coding in the comments panel

    Acrobat Reader allows to highlight text and then enter comments to the highlighted text into the separate panel on the right of the text. I use this feature a lot, when reviewing papers. It would be very handy for me if the comments in the right panel were somehow marked with the same colour as the highlighting in the text. Such feature would allow me easily navigate between the comments later, when making a summary: e.g. first selecting green comments, then red comments etc.

  5. https://www.adobe.com/products/wishform.html#!&sa_src=web-messaging

    My name is Manu Tarí and I am getting in touch with you because we have a serious problem with Acrobat Reader

    We are a designer studio from Alicante, Spain and we have created interactive catalogs in InDesign with videos, sound clips and buttons that have to play movies and in InDesign they work correctly but when exporting the catalog as interactive PDF and opening it in Acrobat Reader they do not work . A month ago the catalogs worked correctly in Acrobat Reader, you could click on a button and it played the video or sound, now not, and…

  6. Show commenting tools in full screen mode or at least allow to move all menus and panes to sides.

    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.

  7. 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…

  8. Too many comments (of any type) create lag

    I am studying a pdf and when I have arrived at almost 2000 comments adobe started not working well. For example after having underlined a word Adobe block for a few seconds and then restarts. I trid checking for uploads and restoring the version but nothing.

  10. I bought a computer ,I pay to use the internet . I can't read a news item without paying .

    The computer is useless as it's xp. I get advertising all the time. I will soon have to pay to see the screen . billionaires squeeze you dry. How much more do these big companies want. Why don't they REDUCE THEIR PRICES. instead of giving billions to charity.
    WHAT ABOUT us. ? Oh of course you're too busy isolating on your Abu Darbi island.

  12. Alphabetical sorting of the Comments field

    The comments field allows for sorting but it doesn’t have alphabetical sorting.

  13. Allow ctrl+backspace in comments/text function

    It sounds trivial, but for (probably!) millions of students, we often take notes in lectures by typing directly on the slide. Unfortunately, you can't quickly remove wrong typing by hitting control+backspace, which, if you're keeping up with a lecture, is a right pain. I'm a fast typist, but even I struggle to keep up when I have to repeatedly hit backspace to remove things, letter by letter. Often, keeping up with a lecture requires the removal of several words as lecturers often substantially rephrase what they've just said - it's not many words when you're speaking, but it is when…

  15. 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.

  16. Illegible characters on the print instead of the legible original text seen on the screen

    No way to print legible text from the last version of the Acrobat Reader .....20048 (no metter if ENG or CZE version). The reinstalation has not helped. OK print of the document only from th FoxitReader and finaly from the older version of the Acrobat Reader 2019.008.20071.

  18. 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.

  19. Create a robust student/worksheet mode for surfaceable/easy-to-use student tools with zero data loss

    In this era of online/distance learning, never has it been so clear that Adobe Acrobat Reader is sorely inadequate for everyday use for students. The PDF format has long been used by teachers for worksheets, but ironically only to print them out. Now that everything is digital, most routine worksheets in PDF format are not easily editable or annotatable for students to fill them out and return them! This is the moment the PDF format has been waiting for its whole existence, and it is coming up short. In practice, even when PDFs set up as fillable forms, they are…

  20. THE NEW ADOBE ACROBAT DOESN'T WORK FOR ME. THE WINDOWS 8 VITAGE OF ACROBAT WORKED GREAT, I COULD SCAN SEVERAL PAGES AND EMAIL THEM WITH ONE

    THE OLDER VERSIONS, I COULD SCAN SEVERAL PAGES AND CLICK ON THE MAIL ICONE AND SEND THEM. NOW I HAVE TO DO A SAVE AS, THEN OPEN UP EMAIL AND SEND. I USED TO BE ABLE TO TYPE TEXT ON A PDF, NOT NOW. WINDOWS 8 WORKED GREAT NOW I HAVE ALL KINDS OF PROBLEMS AND MY COMPUTER RUNS MUCH SLOWER AND IT IS ONLY A YEAR OLD.
