Hi. I've set up my adobe acrobat pro so that it copies text into a comment when I highlight it. I have tried to setup the android app in the same way, but the highlight tool is not copying the text over to the comment. It is only highlighting the text and adding an empty comment on the comment section. I've tried this with several PDF's and it doesn't seem to work. Does anyone know how to fix this or if this is even possible?

Hi Giyi,   It seems that you are referring to copy the text to comment window that you higlight in the PDF. It is not possible in the mobile application. You need to manually add notes in the comment window for the highlighted text. The mobile application has some limitation and it does not work in the similar way as the desktop application.   Let us know if you have any questions.   Regards, Meenakshi

I am having the same problem in the desktop app. In previous versions of Acrobat, highlighted text automatically appeared in the Comments window. I'm in a doc now that I've had for a while and had annotated in a previous version of Acrobat. All the highlighted text is there in the Comments window, but when I highlight some new text, all that appears in the Comments is "Highlighted text."

Am I doing something wrong? Is there some setting I can change or something to bring back this feature? I rely on it heavily and the robustness of it has been one of the years I've kept paying for Acrobat all these years. PLEASE don't let it be true that Adobe has "unimproved" Acrobat and taken away this feature!

(Also, it worked great on my iPad, unlike other [cheaper] PDF annotation apps. I haven't tried the new version. I also hope this feature hasn't been lost there!)

Thanks in advance,

Nathaniel

I'm also having the same issue. I think deferring the lack of this very important feature to the so-called limitations of iPadOS is not a good business strategy. Please, pay attention to our demands.

Hi iOS user here,

Can't agree with you more! Let's all make a request to this feature  (acrobat mobile auto copy highlight text to comment) and hopefully Adobe team would listen to us!

Make request here: https://www.adobe.com/products/wishform.html

Thank you, Ray! I just submitted my request. But the fact that we have yet to see any support or proactive attention from the Adobe team makes me think that either their PR is extremely dysfucntional or they really don't care about their Apple customers. Event the fact that they have yet to adapt their software to Apple's now pretty settled "full window vs zoom" interface on MacOS makes it so obvious that they really don't care about their customers.

 

I guess Apple should explicitly force Adobe to listen to us, and this is not fair as I believe Adobe must have more Apple customers than Windows customers.
