I came here ready to post this topic, infuriated by the fact that out of all the messy tools in Acrobat, Adobe could not be bothered to include a coordinate/ dimensions field for precise placement of objects.
I work in an architecture firm and being administrator, I end up building a lot of graphic design content including forms for clients.
It's difficult enough that there are no Adobe programs that are natively built around forms, but having to go between products to complete these builds is exhausting.
I create transparent PNGs in Ps which I then import into Acrobat to attach to fillable forms. It takes forever to get items scaled properly in Acrobat because there is no scaling boxes that you find in...oh, I don't know, almost every other Adobe product.
I get that Acrobat wasn't meant to be a layout editor, but guess what? Developers have turned it into just that, and with all the tools in Acrobat we have available, it would seem rather logical to add a feature which is consistent across most platforms.
Along with the properties box not offering the level of detail some of us need, it is also not available in all elements, including those such as images which we have imported in.
Every single element in a project should have a coordinate/ dimensions box available to adjust for.
Please. Please add this in. Sooner rather than later. Stop ignoring this request.Tye supported this idea ·
