  1. Add multi tabs

    Add the ability to open multiple PDF files or multiple instance of the application (for have two or more PDF side by side).

    It would be very useful.

  3. Mobile responsive PDFs

    Make PDFs created on desktop mobile responsive so that mobile users don't have to zoom in and out of documents when viewing on android. This will improve user experience and drive adoption of Adobe Acrobat for Android.

  6. Copy text in read mode

    Hi! It's not possible to copy the text in read mode. I think it's necessary the possibility to copy text.

    For example, I'm french and when I read an English book or text, I would like copy text and the pop up of Google translate appears.

  7. Dictionary should be included in AR. Whenever we select a word along with copy share options MEANING OPTION should be there.

    Dictionary is a very important tool, and in pdf readers its necessity increases.
    When we select a word ,along with other option meaning option should also be there. Or the brief meaning should marquee on the header of the page. This is important cause ,a reader needs to shift to other dictionary apps and sometimes forgets in what context he was searching for it. And again and again it becomes a hectic menace. Reading would become a log more easier with this new feature. And even complex literature could be read and ASSIMILATED wigh ease.

  8. There should be in-app PDF rotation feature

    The PDF can be rotated using mobile's auto rotation sensor. This auto rotation feature consumes battery as processor keeps taking data from gyrosensor. You can provide in-app feature to manually rotate a page or complete PDF clockwise or anticlockwise without the need of Mobile's own sensor.
    In night mode, black and white mixture gives eye paining contrast. Can't you provide golden yellowish background or give user manual control to set page colour and amount of white-wash to reduce the contrast.

    I have been waiting for this in each update.

  9. PDF dimensions

    I wish there was an easy way to get the dimensions (height, length and resolution) of a given PDF easily with the android app.

    I've just spent an hour trying to figure how, it just doesn't exist as if now.

  10. Opening 3D pdf (Interactive 3D pdf with animation) on Android / iOS devices.

    3D pdf works fine with PC, however we cannot open it on any Android or Apple phone/tab.
    can we implement this in mobile version of adobe reader?

    Tetra4D has an App that can open 3D pdfs created using tetra4D converter & opening in Adobe pro.

  11. PDF Files on my SD card won' appear on the Local Tab of Adobe Reader

    Hi Acrobat Reader team,

    I am having issues viewing the pdf files located on my SD card. I have recently switched phones and when going to the Local Tab, I can't find the files on my SD card. These are musical pieces which I need and Acrobat reader is really helpful on opening these type of files. Though there is an option to open these files using Google Drive PDF viewer or Dropbox PDF viewer, I would still use Acrobat Reader as I am used to it. Let me know how to fix this. Thanks!

  12. 3D support

    3D PDF's can be viewed on the computer with standard adobe reader but this functionality is lost on the android (and iOS?) version. I suspect the processing power of mobiles and tablets would have originally have made this unworkable but this isn't the case anymore.

    I request that this is added as mobile applications are increasing common in the workplace, out on site etc. and would be very useful for those PDFs with 3D models.

  14. please allow orientation lock in settings

    Please allow landscape orientation lock in settings, without a lock,adobe PDF reader is driving me nuts on my mobile,reading PDF files in portrait orientation is not good,not having a lock means I can't read while in bed,the orientation keeps on changing,such a lock is so easy to implement and makes a lot of difference in user-experience,I am aware that android has orientation lock,but it only locks in portrait mode.
    Apps like vlc player in android has orientation lock in settings,hope you take my suggestion seriously
    I want to thank you for listening to customers

  15. Fit screen when scrolling

    As I scroll a PDF book, my up/down motion is not the only one. I zoom the page so that the text fills the screen and as I scroll, I must constantly recenter the page because you Neanderthals don't realize how a book is read. Why can't the screen lock to the text so that when I move up and down a text it doesn't also slide side to side? I always have to recenter. You ******* retards all probably use other reader apps that don't have this porblem because I'm sure it would have driven you nuts by now.

  16. Render overprint correctly on Acrobat Reader for mobile devices

    Overprint of the objects are not displayed correctly in Acrobat for mobile devices. Attached file is for testing purposes. As you do have a code to generate overprint correctly, it should be at least possible to turn on correct rendering manually.

  19. Need a recently added tab

    Hey there.
    I've been using adobe for reading my pdfs.
    The problem is that I cant find the pdfs that are recently downloaded. The only feature available now is recently added. I think adding a recently downloaded tab would be very much helpful.
    Thank you.!
