We want real smooth scrolling (not just continuous scrolling).
I mean that kind of scroll we get when using a web browser. SMOOTH scrolling! It would also look like dragging text with a "hand tool" in Reader but with a mouse wheel.
Current method makes text jump one or three lines at a time (depending on your mouse settings), which pretty much irritating!
I appreciate your attention.
Thanks for your valuable feedback. We have taken a note of it. Will keep you posted.
I'm upvoting this because I want smooth scrolling with my precision touchpad in Adobe Acrobat Pro. I also want horizontal scrolling. It's also worth mentioning that you cannot scroll the settings either. You have to use the keyboard, touch or use the tacks and/or thumb in the window.
I wonder why my organisation pays for Acrobat Pro. Acrobat Pro is bloated, slow and doesn't even have smooth scrolling in 2020 (sorry for mentioning the year, I know that this issue will be very old, like 2025 old, and you may feel sad after seeing the year 2020 just as I do when others do it). A lot of people use the Chrome PDF reader but unfortunately it is missing a lot of features, especially related to editing.
And as bugmenot said, Acrobat Reader is pretty much just abandonware now. It gets interface updates and - and- uh... oh that's it lmao. Acrobat Reader is so powerful and old and there's nothing like it. Please just fix the scrolling.
To think that this issue was made in early 2017 and it is now early 2020. I don't have any hope or trust in Adobe. We (everyone) should switch to the Affinity suite where we can.
yes please listen Adobe!, i want to read smoothly on my 144Hz monitor
I was searching for a solution on this exact problem, but Adobe seems to making fun of people with that title that this page has. They don't care
Sometimes the most important things are the most overlooked things.

With Microsoft Surface Laptop and having Pro ASP.NET MVC 5 reading, I just switched to chrome browser reading of the pdf book. I did this to only avoid the jumpy scrolling of the pages, I was reading. It was very annyoing. Why are not fixing is sooner? Its already two years. I am still having problems
I switch to foxit because of this
I just stopped using Adobe Acrobat Reader because of the bad scrolling (multiple line scrolling) while I can read PDFs in Chrome, Xodo, ... with so much smoother scrolling experience.
Now I am using Xodo.
It is a pity that such great software is missing out because of lack of such feature. I can scroll smoothly in Adobe by the middle button of mouse but not by scrolling which means the software is capable of doing that but is not enabled.
If You can do smooth automatic scrolling(shift, ctrl, H), even with variable speed why not the same smooth scrolling when using arrow keys or scroll wheel. The program is certainly capable of doing it, there is just no way of enabling it.

yes!!, this is the most annoying feature of the otherwise great program. Why would you program the scrolling to jump several lines at a time?? It makes it so much harder to read a book this way and it very frustrating.

Yes it is really a shame that these so called genius people can't give real smooth scrolling option for such otherwise great pdf reader.
Nowadays the best PDF viewer for Windows is .... Mozilla Firefox's pdf.js, by far.
Adobe Acrobat seems abandonware since version 8... it's a sore eye with its menu bars toolbars and scrollbars that can never be hidden ... and the lousy Windows 95 three line scrolling...
All this just signals how dead Microsoft Windows is, and that Adobe's is done with software applications for Windows

I can't believe Adobe Acrobat DC is such a great app with such lowsy scrolling... It's the only reason I don't use it as my default PDF software. C'mon Adobe!
