  1. Search option needs expanded sorting feature

    In the search option there needs to be a way to sort search results by alphabet, date, etc. Right now on the app, all search results are done by date. I need to search alphabetically. Also needed is the ability to sort as lists or pictures as there is on the home page.

  3. font size adjust

    I use the Gospel library app on Android to read scriptures and I like how I can increase the font size as opposed to zooming in which makes it awkward to read and navigate. I would very much like this feature

  7. Mobile version does not show presentation with video slides

    Allow me to view, don't care about editing, pdf presentations with video. I have no way of playing an adobe presentation without a full blown windows computer.

  8. Global PDF Bookmarks

    Currently a User can only view Bookmarks for a PDF if they open that PDF explicitly.

    It would be good if a User can view Bookmarks across all PDFs even if they are not open. Clicking on a Bookmark would then open the corresponding PDF. This feature is supported in KDE/Okular https://docs.kde.org/trunk5/en/kdegraphics/okular/bookmark-management.html

  9. Search function not working

    The word search/find function doesn't work as well as it does on PC. For I try to find "Act V" in a Shakespeare pdf and while the desktop version finds all "Act V" phrases just fine, the android version fails to find any of them, even if I match capitalization.

  11. Blue light filter

    It should emit lower frequency lights and not higher ones like blue light. This will help prevent eye straining while viewing PDF.

  14. PDF does not open when firewall blocks internet connection

    When WiFi or Mobile Data is on, Acrobat Reader tries to connect to ec2*.compute.azonaws.com. My firewall blocks this connection (why would Acrobat reader need Internet to view a simple PDF?!). Then the loading screen hangs and the PDF does not open.

    If I turn off WiFi and Mobile data everything works... but it is very tedious to turn it off every time only to view a PDF!

    I'm using the app version 18.3.1.208062 on Android 8

  15. remove document cloud and login prompt

    I only use pdf's locally. I do not want and will not use document cloud. So, I do not want to EVER be prompted to login to adobe reader. Give me an option in settings or preferences to completely disable document cloud and the adobe login.

    I left photoshop when adobe switched to CC; if document cloud is necessary and continues to nag me with login prompts, I will remove adobe reader from every system I own and recommend the same to everyone I meet...

  17. Please support all fields types, including radio buttons AND CALCULATED FIELDS

    Adobe Reader for iOS supports most or all field types, including calculated fields. Adobe Reader for Android does not.

    I need my clients to be able to work with interactive forms that include radio buttons and calculated fields -- on their Android devices.

  19. Fix "This page does not reflow" errors

    There is no clear difference between pages which cannot be reflowed and surrounding pages. Competing products have no such page-specific issue. This reading-mode bug makes it impossible to use the Android Reader for book-length PDFs.

    I'll attach a simple text-only PDF generated from public-domain HTML. In the current 17.5 version of the Android Reader, 12 of the first 20 pages do not reflow.
