          I would like to see a preference which defaults the Access Type. Currently this is always 'Open' and you must change every file you upload. Either default to Restricted, or allow the user to set as a preference on their setup

            hello there,
            awesome work you guys have been doing, but i've got a few suggestions:

            What about one universal file place where you can save and edit all kind off documents, especially for the buzzword
            Maybe a RSS feed on your new files etc..
            Please let me story again movies and any kind of file type.. Now I get the error that Share doesn't support it, so I can't store it.

            Keep up the good work, and I'll let you know when I've got another idea..
            cheers

              Goodbye Google Docs! Bring it Adobe.

              Incredible UI. Incredible functionality. Connect Now amazing.

              Need versioning in Buzzword with user designations to edits. Presentation app would be nice. More apparent way to return to acrobat.com home with app listing. Cancel option at Account Settings.

              Can hear the sound of a billion mouse clicks registering...

                Keeping preferences ?

                While viewing "My Files", I am always selecting "List by Author" and "View as list" buttons.
                If signing out/signing in, my preferences are LOST.
                Could you please implement a way to register such preferences ?

                  Looks like *.mht and *.htm files, created from MS Excel, cannot be pre-viewed from "My Files" window with Flash.
                  Do you plan that feature ?

                    Do you plan create folders to organizate files?

                      It'd be nice to have better progress, especially for uploading -- some idea of how long it has left would be handy.

                          What an awesome product! Keep up the great work!

                          I would like to see your Buzzword docs and your Acrobat.com docs in the same window as it would be a bit more user friendly. Two different locations is a bit confusing for new users. I have been teaching all of my co-workers to use Acrobat.com for everything.

                            Acrobat.com is just marvelous! I would like Acrobat.com to incorporate the following features:
                            (i.) Tagging the files so that we can sort and search them more easily
                            (ii.) Ability to create folders for additional sorting
                            (iii.) Ability to link different file types i.e. pdf, doc, xls which are grouped under one single date, title or project
                            (iv.) Authors fields added to specify authors
                            (v.) Offline access and plugin for firefox to synchronize online and offline copies

                              Hi all, thanks for these feature requests. keep 'em coming they are being looked at.

                                How about a sound that indicates when an upload is finished. I find that I start an upload and go on to other things while the file gets uploaded and have to keeping going back to Acrobat.com to check on the progress.

                                By the way, Send Us Feedback under "More" doesn't seem to work: either doesn't open another window or gives false email address

                                  Err... any chance to have the possibility to rename files?

                                  I just uploaded a bunch of PDF, and I want to rename them to better sort them in the Share Panel.

                                  Also... I am not so keen on the categories, but tagging would be cool.

                                    Here's another vote (request?) for folders.

                                        one more thing...let's say I want to upload n*100 word documents at once. I zip them, and upload them.

                                        now what...

                                        I think it would be great if we could do a remote unzip...

                                        thanks

                                          Dear Mollaka,

                                          Thank you for your post. We will look into this issue. At the moment we cannot say whether we will implement this feature and as to when it might be available.

                                            So I'm trying to transfer my Document editing to buzzword, but I am uploading my older documents to acrobat.com for backup and covinience... But it looks if I have to redowload files already stored at acrobat.com and then re upload into buzzword? Shouldn't there be a button "Edit in Buzzword" somewhere in my acrobat.com UI?
                                            (All in all I love both of them!)

                                                I would really like to have the basic ability to rename a file without having to delete it and re-upload. A time-consuming/wasteful exercise if ever there was one.

                                                    Hi vcs_inc,
                                                    You should have the ability to rename your files within the organizer.
                                                    If you click ones on the file's icon, it will highlight it. At that point, to the right of the file's name, a small down-arrow should be visible.

                                                    Clicking on this down arrow brings up a context menu that will have the option of Rename, with which you can rename your files without having to delete and re-upload!

                                                    Hope this helps out,
                                                    Cheers,
                                                    Pete

                                                      1. Auto save. That's the thing I miss most from google docs. A deal breaker!

                                                      2. Real style sheets, both paragraph and character based.

                                                      3. Search. Ability to search by file name or contents.

                                                      4. Tags and/or folders.

                                                      5. The current file displays are very confusing. Can I just have a plain old list of my files please? See #3 above.

                                                      Thanks for Buzzword, it looks really promising. I'm so tired of google doc's widely differing behavior on different browsers... but see #1.

                                                      Best,
                                                      /r:b:

                                                          ..and I'm sorry but I don't found the RENAME option...

                                                            Here's another vote for folders to better organise files in 'My Files'. I'd also like the option to rename files once uploaded, as others have similarily requested. Overall though, I think the UI is great. I love the way the files slide into new locations when the view is changed.

                                                                For some meetings I'm having with some friends I'm looking for the most interesting free and basic online collaboration service available.
                                                                All of these I've researched (let's not begin to sum them up :-)) seem to be lacking at least one key feature: the ability to organise content in folders.
                                                                The question seems to have been posted here repeatedly also but seems to never get answered.

                                                                Another feature going hand in hand with this would be the possibility to share these folders and make them editable by others.

                                                                A last feature request, more out of convenience than anything else would be a shared calendar.

                                                                Could you please tell me if any of these features is planned for future development?

                                                                thank you

                                                                    I'd love this feature/option! (folders for organization & the ability to share a specific folder)

                                                                    And if there was a way that the folder could then be linked the buzzword document.
                                                                    (down the road... maybe even within the document itself, there could be a "add file link" which would automatically pop open a window to browse your "shared" files/folders)
                                                                    ie: Create a document.. but then have links to the specific folders where others can then retrieve files.

                                                                    • 31. Re: Feature Requests / Suggestion Box

This would allow much smaller PDFs for storing or e-mailing. I saw several sample PDFs on Adobe.com; which had this capability, but all the embedded links were to other locations and not to Acrobat.com.

                                                                        This may be possible already. I did notice that uploaded and shared video files to Acrobat.com can not be the following formats: MOV, WMV, FLV, XVID, DIVX, or RETG. If this is possible already, can someone point me to the recommended steps for accomplishing this? If this is not currently possible, can someone let me know so I don't waste a bunch of time trying to figure this out? With 6 restricted video file types, and a large number of other file types restricted, there must be some sort of good reason for the file type restrictions.

I had a simple test: Could I easily set up a headed paper template using the online word processor. I've been using Google Docs for some time, and dispite being a massive Google fan, I have to admit the word processor is c**p. I also tried ZOHO - very impressive, but ultimatly both these solutions made me want to throw my computer out the window. Enter Adobe Buzzword - up and running in 10 mins!

                                                                                    6. Ability to share multiple files
                                                                                    7. Sharing to groups

                                                                                    I'd like to expand on what I mean by branding. I want to use acrobat.com to integrate with my own website - i.e on my domain. As a business owner, I want to create a corperate acount and have control over my users (and their files). When sharing invitation emails go out, I'd like them branded in my name in association with Adobe.

We're quite pleased to know that you're a fan of Acrobat.com, and really appreciate the thoughtful list of ideas on how we can improve.

I'll address a few more specifically:
