  2. Rich Media > too few Player Control options.

    Acrobat Pro DC, Continuous Release | Version 2021.005.20058

    ALL or NONE is not enough. In previous versions, we had more player control options in the drop-down list. See this video in forum post from May 2022.

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/re-doesn-t-show-video-controls-to-play-and-stop-branched-amp-moved-from-acro-reader/m-p/12071983#M314407

    What happened to the other options?

    There is no way to stop the video once it starts playing. That's terrible for usability reasons.

    Please bring back more player control options.

  4. Multiple tab (session) opening

    I want to upvote "Reopen PDFs Launched in previous sessions on Opening Acrobat/Reader".
    Although you implemented reopen pdfs from last session, it would be INCREDIBLY useful to be able to save sessions. e.g. 5 specific pdfs regarding research on wastewater management could be saved as a session and 10 different pdfs (or some of the previous 5) as a session regarding Mn removal from water with an option to recall whichever I need when opening Acrobat. That would speed up a lot of people's workflow, especially those who have to jump through multiple topics with various materials.

  5. error message for non administrative users (msiexec.exe)

    When you start Adobe Acrobat Pro without local adminstrative rights a error message appears.(see attachment)
    We identified the corresponding command line with procmon: "C:\Windows\System32\msiexec.exe" /i {AC76BA86-1033-FFFF-7760-0C0F074E4100} REINSTALLMODE=omus DISABLEFIUCHECK=1 IGNOREAAM=1 REPAIRFROMAPP=1 INSTALLUWPAPP=1 /qn"

    We deployed the "Creative Cloud Client" as a "Self-Serivce-Packages", so licensed Users can install and use adobe products without local administrative rights.

    Could you please check why msiexec.exe is called with every program start? We get a lot of tickets from users complaining about this error message and your support wasnt a help at all.

  6. Tool Bar icons

    The Tool Bar icons appear cartoonish - maybe at least tighten their outlines so they appear crisper!

  8. Acrobat DC Standard hangs while loading license status

    When opening any PDF, document loads in DC, then hangs for ~10s while license status is accessed. Once license status appears in lower right corner (e.g. "Your current plan is Acrobat Standard DC, annual"), app becomes responsive again.

    New issue, very annoying, please fix.

  9. Preview handler in Windows 10 locks PDF files if active on windows preview pane.

    For some reason, we cannot delete PDF files store on a network because the preview handler locks the file. We have to hit the delete key which opens a windows prompt that the file is in use, then unselect the PDF file, and then click in the windows dialog to try again.

  11. Icon and Recent File List

    The new white icon is very uncomfortable. I'd prefer the old icon file please. But even more important is the Recently Opened Files list ... now that thumbnails are included, the names of the files are TINY. I need to know how to make those file names larger, as I use this list multiple times daily! Please make the list as it used to be.

  12. Opt out of pop ups for latest version-if I needed cloud, I would ask for itr

    Request to opt out of pop ups for latest version of Adobe Acrobat Standard DC. If I needed cloud, I would ask for it. Opening a file takes long enough without stopping to close pop up.

  13. Annoying sign-in for Adobe ID, request to ignore that permanently

    Every time I open Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, Adobe - annoyingly - wants me to sign in with my Adobe ID. I want to skip this pop-up permanently.

  14. Acrobat DC process hangs

    Acrobat processes hang in task manager. Clicking on a PDF file or the application shortcut will not launch the program but task manager shows Acrobat running. Killing the process and trying again still does not work. Users have to sign out or reboot several times a day to get Acrobat to launch.

  16. To HIDE page thumbnails every time I open a pdf

    Please set up a layout feature where I could choose if I want page thumbnails to be open every time I work with a pdf file. In fact, I prefer to hide page thumbnails pane when I open pdf documents. If want to use this pane, I can always click on the left arrow.

  19. Boolean with Exact Phrase(s)

    Greetings, dear colleagues!

    I want to use Advanced Search of the Acrobat XI in order to perform the following search query:
    cat AND "barking dog"

    However by trials and errors I found that this syntax does not work in Boolean query mode of the Advanced Search.

    It would be great to have such simple, but extremely useful search option

    Thank you.

    Thanks for the feedback. Acrobat XI is now out of active development, but we are making a note of your feature request.
    Thanks again for reporting

  20. Bug: Save as not working: "The File may be read-only, or another user may have it open.

    Unable to "save-as," export, or e-sign a PDF document.

    Error message when trying to export as another PDF file type, or as another PDF with normal "save as":

    "The File may be read-only, or another user may have it open. Please save the document with a different name or in a different folder."

    I am using Acrobat 9 Pro on a Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6.
