  1. Unable to open encrypted PDFs

    After December update, unable to open encrypted PDFs on mobile devices

    Our vendor appliance (Totemo) is using an open-source library to create password protected/encrypted PDFs.

    Those PDFs were readable until probably mid/end of December 2019.

    The error is simply "The document cannot be opened because it is corrupted or damaged.

    The same PDF can be opened without problems on a W10 workstation.

    I have uploaded such a PDF, the password is "Nussbaum1!"

    Environment: Android 10 December 2019 Patched
    Adobe Acrobat reader version 19.9.2

    Expected result: after entering the correct password, the encrypted PDF is shown

    Observed result: after entering the…

  2. Opening documents from files

    Ever since the update (completed yesterday), files don't automatically open when double clicking them in my documents folder. I can only do this by going to the app and then selecting any of the files from there.

  3. Scrolling is annoying when pdf is still moving on its own

    When scrolling with my finger the app retains momentum and this prevents the scroll tab on the right side of the screen to scroll. I end up tapping on the screen or waiting until the document stops so I can use the scroll tab again. Please make the scroll tab independent of the pdf momentum and let it just always control scrolling.

  7. Adobe upgrade strongarm

    I keep getting heavily suggested purchase options for Adobe products I've had but never used...It's like, "you want fries with that order of fries?" Iow, Adobe won't just let me open a document to read at least on my Chromebook or Pixel phone. Something against Google chrome users? Otherwise, whoever sent that important pdf flubbed it somehow since it fails to download or open. Any ideas besides wait three days for the sender to try again?

  8. Read with voice

    Reading with voice or sound would be awesome! Lots of people are like me and have difficulties reading downloaded PDFs. The liquid feature is fabulous but a voice to listen to hear the PDFs would be even more fabulous for everyone!! Thanks so much!! Lila Reed

  9. Recognise phone numbers in the pdf document so I can click on it without having to copy and paste it into the dialer.

    I wish it would recognise phone numbers in the pdf document so I can click on it without having to copy and paste it into the dialer. BTW IOS pdf reader does it.

  10. Bookmark icon that marks where you left off

    You can hold and press bookmark and an icon will appear that will mark exactly where you left off on the page. That way you wont have to try to remember exactly where you left off last time.

  11. フォルダ選択

    ファイル→このデバイス上
    でPDFファイルを表示した際に、

    フォルダA
    ファイル1
    ファイル2
    ファイル3
    フォルダB
    ファイル4
    ファイル5

    のようにすべてのファイルが一覧で表示されてしまい、せっかくフォルダ分けしていても意味がなくなってしまっているので、

    ファイル→このデバイス上→フォルダを選択→フォルダ内のファイル一覧

    のようにフォルダを選択できるようにしていただけると助かります。

    よろしくお願いいたします。

  12. Lock view

    Please add option to choose the zoom and lock it on the middle so the page will not go to the sides.
    This is one of the features that is better in ebook readers

  15. Open Secure PDF

    A lot of University and hospital PDFs are 'secure' PDFs that only seem to work on a full version of PDF reader for windows, and will not open at all on the android version. Please can you look into this. It is incredibally annoying having to do all my work on a chromebook, only to then have to go and read 1 document on a PC.

  19. Reader app runs only in black and white

    Using Reader 19.8 on OnePlus 7 Pro running Oxygen OS 10.0.1. The whole app runs in black and white. Colour visible briefly when opening a file but then fades. Colour fades back in when switching to another app.
