During the recent Adobe Reader DC update, the check box appearing as default in comments list is removed. Is there any other way to enable it.

Siva

Hi Siva,

Thanks for coming to us with your query.

With the new version of Adobe Acrobat and Reader, we have moved the Checkbox option inside the overlay/Right Click menu on the comment in comment list to give it a cleaner and modern look.

Please feel free to connect in case of any further query.

Regards,

Ammar

Hello,

I understand the need fot a cleaner and moder look. However this is a real bummer for me, and I assume for lot of people. For example, every weeks I receive large PDFs, often with 500+ comments in them. I have to fix those 500 problems in InDesign, so to be sure I don't miss any comments, I use the checkboxes. I have been using them for many years. Very convenient also to filter comments by checkbox status.

Now, with the new "modern and better" look, I have to click on the menu button on the comment, then click on checkbox.

As a result, I have to do two "mouse click" instead of one, each time I want to check a comment. It may sounds irrelevant, but clicking 1000 times instead of 500, it's not looking as an improvement to me.

I would like to have a setting where we can "display" the checkbox as it were before the update. Thanks!

This is not user friendly. Adobe should revisit this and revert the checkbox position.

I certainly agree with Andre.

Adobe should revisit this and revert the checkbox position.

Thanks everyone for giving us your precious time and valuable suggestions.

We have recorded the suggestion in our backlog and our Design team will see if the changes are required. We will keep you updated.

Meanwhile, you can use SHIFT+K to add checkbox to the comment. Hope this helps.

Regards,

Ammar

Thanks for looking into this. In future, Adobe can get suggestions from Forum or the companies who owned more licenses. So that, the users will be happy to provide feedback/suggestion before live release.

Thanks Amar.

"SHIFT+K" is an interesting compromise, even though I'd rather have the checkbox back 😉

Our whole design team was getting frustrated with the checkbox missing - but thanks for the 'SHIFT+K' tip - that's much better than trying to click the small checkbox (although the only reason I found this forum was in frustration from the checkbox missing! No way were we going to "right click>add checkmark" through hundreds of comments on a publication).

Shift-K is a great discovery! It would still be awesome to have the option to have the checkbox displayed, I have to regularly action hundreds of PDF comments and right-clicking to add a checkbox is extremely frustrating. But at least the shortcut will help.
