Hi,

When editing a PDF I add text, and I would prefer red as the standard color. But standard the color is black.

How set the color by default?

How are you adding the text, exactly? Is it a form field? A comment? Static text? Something else?

Also, what version of Acrobat are you using?

Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, version 2018.011.20040 (windows) and same on the MacBook.

Edit PDF > Add Text.

The Menu Preferences > Content Editing allows only the font and its size, not the color.

In that case it's really not possible, but you're welcome to submit a feature request:

I want this functionality also, but when I try to submit a feature it doesn't have Adobe Acrobat Pro DC in the list.  The site is too complicated.

I'd also welcome setting default, when editing existing text.
