    I never edited a plist file before. Provided I did it correctly* it didn’t work for me. It still took about 15 seconds to open the comments panel.

    * MacOs: I converted the file using `plutil -convert xml1 <FILENAME>`, pasted the tag in the inner of AVGeneral, then converted it back using `plutil -convert binary1 <FILENAME>`.

    Turning off fonts is not a fix, it’s a workaround. The software should be fixed to handle it. It doesn’t even require all the fonts for comments. There is no font selection. And even if it would, this should be moved to a background process, that works over time, with a fallback font, or at the very very least a loading bar. Just freezing the thing for 20 seconds is no way for a good software.

    Also I don’t know if the RTF-ish support is even on purpose. If you copy formatted text, it sometimes stays in the format, but there is no option to remove or change it. It looks like this part of Acrobat is just poorly written.

    As stated numerously, it doesn’t depend on the file.
    But if you insist, here is a file: https://adobe.ly/2JNq6VT

    It takes me 7.5 seconds to open the comment-pane.
    Im on Version 2018.011.20040 and Build 18.11.20040.280397
