Looking for an easier way to rename files within a portfolio

Is there an easier way to rename files within a portfolio besides right-clicking, selecting Edit Value and then Name?  I was hoping to be able to tab from the Name field to the Description field and to any custom fields for each document within a portfolio.  Right-clicking, etc. is time consuming and clunky.

 

Thank you!

Hi @Angie298081595wmw 

 

Thanks for reaching out.

This is the actual way of renaming the file name within a PDF portfolio. I understand your concern that it might take a little more time. But sadly, there's no alternate way or shortcut to do this.

Even if there's a way by using JavaSrcipt, we don't have expertise in writing that.

 

Thanks,

With the new Acrobat view for DC, I no longer have to option to "Edit Value". How do I update the file name and description for files within a portfolio?

Hi Natalie28468002te8b,

 

Thank you for reaching out and reporting this.

 

We are sorry for the trouble caused. We will get this checked with the team. 

 

We acknowledge that the new Acrobat represents a notable change. However, we hope that as you get familiar with the new interface, you will be able to be more productive & get more out of Acrobat.  

As we made these changes in the interface, we have tried to ensure all tools & features that are currently supported retain their familiar functionalities and workflows as they did in the previous version. We are committed to addressing any gaps or issues reported by users related to any break in current workflows in all our past & upcoming releases. In case any of your current workflows are not functioning as expected, do share them with us on this thread, and we will address them with the highest priority. 

 

In case any of your critical workflows are impacted, you have the option to switch back to the old UI from the “Menu” on the top left corner of Windows and View Menu on MacOS.

 

Thanks,

Meenakshi

Go to "Home"

Go to "Your files"

Select/check the portfolio you want to rename.

The menu on the right has a "rename" option.

Took me a long time to figure it out. Not very intuitive, Adobe...

This will not change the name of documents within a portfolio.
