Hi,

 

wenn I edit a PDF via Acrobat on iPad, I only find the freehand drawing tool. This makes it useless for many professional tasks. I cannot believe there is no option to draw a simple straight line? Do I miss something?

 

Thanks,

Lars

Hi Lars,   Thank you for reaching out.   Currently, you can use pencil only via the Drawing tool in the Adobe Acrobat reader application on an iOS device. There is no other option to add a straight line in PDF using the mobile application.  If you wish you may share your suggestion with the product team here: https://adobe.allegiancetech.com/cgi-bin/qwebcorporate.dll?K5836J    Let us know if we can be of any help.    Thanks, Meenakshi

Thanks Meenakshi for your quick answer.

 

So, after paying each month a decent amount of money for the CC, I now need to buy another app (in this case some friends suggested Notability) to be able to draw a straight line on a PDF.

 

I leave this here without further comment.

 

Cheers,

Lars

 

P.S. I did a feature request for the staight line. It felt weird.
