Comments not shown in Comments overview

Hi all,

 

I've been experiencing problems with the comment list that can be found under the 'Comments' tab inside Acrobat.

 

Normally, when I open the comments overview all comments in the entire document are listed. Since a week or two his is not the case anymore. Quite often one or two comments are shown, while there are infact many others.

 

It's not a filter setting as far as I can see. The only way I've been able to get the comments to show up in the overview list is by actually visiting all pages in the documents one by one. Only then do the comments show up in the overview.

 

Am I missing something here? I've actually made a fool out myself by telling people they forgot to save the comments. 😛

Hi Jamie

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry to hear that.

 

Is this an issue with a particular PDF file or with all the PDFs? Please try with a different PDF file and check.

 

What is the version of the Adobe Acrobat DC you are using? To check the version go to Help > About Acrobat and make sure you have the recent version 21.11.20039 installed. Go to Help > Check for updates and reboot the computer once.

 

Also try to reset the Acrobat preferences as described here https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/how-to-reset-acrobat-preference-settings-to-defau...

 

You may also try to create a new test user profile with full admin rights in Win or enable the root account in MAC and try using the application there and check.

 

Regards

Amal

I'm having the same problem here. I'm on latest Acrobat version on OSX Monterey. Comments aren't showing up in the list unless I skip through the entire PDF, page by page, and sometimes not even then (see screenshot). I tried @Amal.'s advice and reset preferences but it didn't work (also out of all the files and folders that article said I should remove, com.adobe.Acrobat.Pro.plist was the only one actually there).  There seems to be many more people experiencing this problem, and getting complaints from clients: https://acrobat.uservoice.com/forums/590923-acrobat-for-windows-and-mac/suggestions/43427637-not-all... Screenshot 2022-02-23 at 11.04.58.png

Hi there

 

We are sorry to hear that the issue still exists. Have you tried to use the application in the root accont as suggested earlier? Please try to enable the root account in MAC and try using the application there and check if that works for you.

Yes, @Amal.  I've tried that. The problem persists. I still need to go through the entire file for comments to load.

Hi Amal,

 

I was wondering if there has been any info on the comments not showing up in the comment overview. It is happening to me, but only when there are multiple users commenting on a pdf.

 

Thank you,

Jenny

I too have been experiencing this exact same issue on Windows machines in the US.

 

In my case it seems to happen only when multiple people comment on the same pdf. So far, when only one person comments I have not had the issue.

 

This is quite a problem as I am missing client corrections.

Same issue here, potentially VERY embarrasing if I don't pick up all client comments. It doesn't appear to happen with every document.
