A bug in Acrobat and Reader DC can sometime cause a comment to be added twice, even when you only do so once. This tool will remove all of these "duplicate" comments from your file with a single click. Be aware, though, that this process is not reversible, so make sure to only save the file after making sure that only duplicate comments have been removed, or save it under a new name, just in case.
Similar to my Search & Replace Text in Bookmarks and Search & Replace Text in Form Fields scripts, you can use this new script to search and replace the text in all the comments in a single file, and if you have Acrobat Pro you can run this as an Action (AKA Batch Sequence) on multiple files, all for the low price of just $25!
Since the release of the latest version of Mac OS, High Sierra (and possibly some earlier versions as well), many people have reported problems setting the fill or border colors of the fields in their PDF forms as Transparent using Acrobat DC. It seems that a bug in the application (and/or the operating system) has caused the "Transparent" check-box to disappear from the color selection dialog.
One of the best features of Acrobat Pro is the Redaction tool. It provides the only safe way of removing information from a PDF file. However, this feature is unfortunately missing from Acrobat Standard.But did you know that it's technically possible to create AND apply redactions in Acrobat Standard? There's just no direct access to this hidden feature through the application's menus. Until now, that is!
One of the the best ways to review comments in PDF Files is by using the Check-mark functionality (the little check-box that appears at the top right-hand corner of each comment in the Comments List panel):
This script will change the names of all authors of comments to a single value. Handy for workflows in which multiple people comment on the same document, or if you just don't want others to know who commented on the file. You can choose to either simply remove the author's name from all comments in the file, or to replace them with a new value, such as "anonymous".
Recently, the lines in the comments in Adobe Acrobat and Adobe (Acrobat) Reader became minuscule, making it very difficult to spot them on the page. With this tool you can make them all big again, with a single click.
A user's request on the Adobe Forums prompted me to create this small utility that allows you to move all of the comment popups windows to the side of the page where they are located with a single click. This script can be used in both Acrobat and the free Reader.
Some PDF files (like those generated by Acrobat when using the Compare Documents command) have locked comments that can't be edited or removed. You can use this simple (and FREE) script to unlock all of these comments with a single click, and then you'll be able to edit them, unless there's a security policy that prevents it.
When creating Pencil comments in Acrobat or Reader while the tool is selected it will only create a single comment, with all of the drawings as a part of it. If you want to "ungroup" those lines into individual comments, this is the tool for you! It's free and can be downloaded from here.
For some reason, Adobe has dropped the option to filter the comments list according to the color of the comment in version X of Acrobat. So I decided to jump to the rescue of those who depended on this feature, or just found it useful, and created a script which allows you to do it once again. You can select the color you want to filter from a list of pre-defined colors, or just click on a comment with the color you want to use and then select the last option in the list: "Selected Comment Color". The script will then identify this color and will only present comments with the same color.
