Updated almost weekly with minial feature advancements or performance improvements in sight, this horrific tool needs a re-write.
I cannot believe the industry tolerate such garbage.

Thank you for this constructive and argued message.
I could not agree more - I am paying $14.99 twice a month for what? Two programs that barely work and slow my PC down to preJurassic levels!!!! Where is the replacement - this is useless!
2023, Still trash.
Editing forms or having to create anything in this program OTHER than one text box or siginiture field for signing is atoricous.
Try reverting to the "classic" user interface instead of the new 2023 "modern viewer" (as Adobe likes to call it).
Instructions are here:
Lots of complaints here that the new interface has some missing functions and quite a few bugs.
It's 2023, I just got an update yesterday after all this time.
It is actually far worse. It crashes 3 times as much. Which is pretty much every time I open it now. I just have to make sure I save constantly before it does. It is the only program on my laptop and PC that does this.
Thank God for the protection of these failed monopolies by the Nanny state of America.
I'm really sorry to hear that you're facing issues with Adobe Acrobat DC. It can be frustrating when technology doesn't cooperate. Let's work together to try and resolve this.
Firstly, could you clarify if this issue is specific to one particular PDF file or if it's affecting all the PDFs you're trying to open? Testing with a different PDF might help us understand the scope of the problem.
Also, could you please confirm the version of Adobe Acrobat DC you're using? To do this, go to the Help menu and select About Acrobat. Make sure you have the most recent version, which should be 23.06.20320. If not, you can check for updates through Help > Check for updates and then restart your computer.
For Windows users, you can attempt to repair the installation from the help menu. Unfortunately, this option is not available on Mac. If you're on a Windows system, give it a try.
In addition, resetting Acrobat preferences can sometimes resolve issues. You can follow the steps outlined in this link: How to reset Acrobat preference settings to default.
If the problem persists, you might want to consider creating a new test user profile on Windows with full admin rights or enabling the root account on Mac. This can help determine if the issue is user-specific or system-wide.
Please try these steps and let us know how it goes. We're here to assist you further if needed.
Your feedback will help us narrow down the problem and find a solution.
