Hello,

Is there a way to use the Draw free form tool in full screen? You could in 11 but it appears you can't in DC. We have faculty members who export their presentations to PDF and then teach classes using Acrobat in full screen, similar to powerpoint. The loss of ability to annotate slides would be very disappointing.

Hi Spastikmonkii,

Sorry for the delay in response.

Please follow below mentioned steps to enable free form tool in full screen mode:

1- Click Edit > Preferences > General > check the box which says use single key accelerators to access tools > click OK

2- Switch to full screen view > press D on the keyboard > then press Shift + D seven times to toggle to pencil tool.

Thanks,

Shivam

After opening Acrobat > View > full screen mode  or you may also use the short cut key 'Ctrl+L'

This puts the PDF in full screen mode, but disables the draw free tool.

That's great - been searching for this answer a long while! Is there a way to "see" the specific tool you are using after pressing "D"? A way to keep the quick action toolbar at the top even in fullscreen mode?

 

Thanks,

 

Alex
