  1. 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.

  2. Ability to turn layers on and off

    Primary suggestion...
    A VERY large number of organisations distribute their CAD drawings in PDF format. These drawings contain layers and these layers can flow through to the PDF.
    The desktop PDF viewer allows users to turn these layers on and off (very handy, paticularly where the drawing contains lots of detail) but the mobile viewers do not.
    It would be very beneficial for mobile users to also have this functionality. It could be argued that with the smaller screens on mobile devices it would be even more beneficial than on the desktop.

  5. night mode

    a dedicated night mode would be great instead of only inside the document

  6. Reader for Android - consistent dark/night mode, PDF and interface.

    The existing dark/night mode to view a PDF is usable though as someone previously pointed out the rendering to B&W/greyscale does unfortunately obscure some coloured text/objects on our charts which were printed that way to stand out (important info).

    But because we work in a dark environment switching from a "dark" PDF to a standard white menu screen to switch between PDFs is practically blinding. Would be good if consistency could be applied across the app.

  7. Improve Drawing on Stylus Devices

    I use Acrobat Reader on the Samsung Galaxy Tab A with S Pen (SM-P580). When the free drawing tool is activated, I want to be able to scroll and zoom with my finger and draw only with the stylus (like in OneNote). Instead, I end up having to constantly deselect the drawing tool in order to navigate the document to make a note somewhere else. This is the only reason I don't use Acrobat Reader to take notes on PDFs in medical school.

  8. creating an inside app folders..

    While reading pdf books, I have a need to arrange them into folders inside the app for the ease of access and organisation..
    Despite the presence of the local browser in the app, it is hard to find the books I want..
    I think adding this feature would provide more to this wonderful app..
    Thank you and I hope to consider my request..

  12. Can't edit text

    I'm trying to edit a PDF on my Android Tablet that I created on my desktop. I spent the $25 to upgrade to DC Pro so that I could edit 5 lines of text on the first page that was created originally on Word, converted to PDF, and then inserted into a larger PDF. It is NOT an image scan. I've edited this text on my desktop.

    DC Pro claimed to let me edit documents. When I searched for instructions on how to do prior to subscribing, there were clear instructions on how to do it. I have searched and…

  14. Document cloud re downloads PDF

    When I upload PDF especially a book to document cloud it re downloads it every time .other apps have a option of make the file available offline and only the changes like highlights etc get synchronized across devices .please have a look at how evernote does it .

    Let's say I highlighted something in a file on document cloud in iPad and then I have to open it on Android ,then it should automatically sync the changes rather then redownload the while file or even upload the whole file from iPad .and both the files in iPad and Android should…

  19. document properties/metadata

    It would be nice to make this more functional by allowing us to see document properties, e.g., number of pages, how created, etc. Very used to this from Linux tools, and thought an Adobe tool would be as capable.
