I am drawing on a PDF using a pen and a Surface Pro.  The default eraser size is very small.  Is there a way to increase the eraser size?

There is no adjustment because the eraser automatically adjusts its size to the thickness of the line drawn with the pencil.

Dear all,

 

i have the same issue (acrobat pro dc). I write a lot in my pdf with a pencil and the erase function is really annoying because it takes me soooo much time to erase words or sentences. In other pdf-editors this is far more easier. Is there really no other option to make the thickness bigger so that can erase faster? Erasing via the comment section is no option, since i would have to search for my comments, that would be insane.

 

I must say that this is really disappointing, since acrobat seems on the other hand a powerful tool.

 

Kind regards

Please make the eraser size changable. It is practically impossible to trace a handwritten character using an eraser with the same sickness by hand!!! This makes the eraser almost useless but extremely annoying.

Same issue, I mark PDFs all the time for corrections, or draw small instructions, but defaulting to the size of the pen is ridiculous. Show me a pencil with an eraser the size of a grain of salt and I'll stand corrected, but if it's not practical in real life it's not practical digitally. Come on, Adobe, we are in a digital pen age, our tech is vastly more advanced than this simple adjustment. Just make the eraser eraser-sized lol, pretty simple request.

Yes, and it still sucks. Nowadays I use Drawboard for annotating, which is quite nice.

I love drawboard!  Do you have any issues with the program freezing on you as you're working though?  Or the color freezing and you have to pick another color to continue?
