I find it very weak that the user does not have the ability to replace one text (Replace all) from all pages at once,
Since 2017 I use Acrobat professionally and for 2 years now Acrobat Pro DC with monthly syndrome.
I work in the field of construction and in large projects we receive PDFs with works that reach 1500 pages and it is impossible to delete a text, a word of 1500 pages every time (next).
I find it unthinkable to be able to do this for free online on various pages and not on Acrobat Pro DC!
So you lose customers without knowing it!

Acrobat and PDFs in general were never intended to be a text editing environment.  In years past, the editing tool was named "Touchup Text Tool", and that was a very appropriate name.  The text editing capabilities have gotten stronger over the versions and years, but the notion that full word processing capabilities should be there just isn't realistic.  If the source documents are available, that's where this type of edit should be done.  Text edits in PDFs are an emergency scenario, when the source doc isn't available, but a change is needed.

My best,

Dave

We live in the 21st century, a century of technology and digital development and the ideology with your thought belongs to 1990. It is unthinkable that If we make a mistake in a list and want to delete a word, or just a simple letter that is found on 2500 pages, there is no automatic group deletion (Delete All or Change All), except by pressing Clear and Next and doing this for 2500 times.
If we are processing 10 such lists per day, we will need three people to delete a word from each list. It's unthinkable since competing company programs do it in 2 minutes.

In the entire group of companies that we have, with 1200 employees and around 400 cooperation clients, we are leaving Adobe with great pleasure and we are ungrateful for it

If you have an error in the page content, then that content needs to be changed in the original document, and then reconverted to PDF

If you work alone on a small list this can be done if you work in an architectural and construction group throughout Germany, the texts are sent via PDF if there is a mistake in the text each partner should change it himself.
We are not trying to find what we could do better with the tools we have but we are just trying to find a perfect modern tool to meet the needs and simplify our work.
This is definitely not Adobe, it used to be, but not for the time we live in.
So the purchase and installation of modern competitive programs is inevitable.
