  3. Full screen is not available after update October 2018

    I have noticed that after the last update in October 2018, we are forced to sign in Adobe Reader account and we can't have full screen like before. Usually updates are for improvement

  4. Fixed horizontal scroll

    I often find myself annoyed when I read zoomed documents because when I move to the next page I need to be careful not to move it horizontally as my zoom makes text fit exactly screen borders.

    So, here is what I suggest. Add a button somewhere on the action bar/toolbar (android/ios) so that is locks horizontal scroll at the current position.

    This would be helpful for people like me, who reads on mobile devices. Because very often books have huge margins which take a lot of so valuable space on small screen.
    With such feature users may zoom documents…

  5. Landscape Mode

    Why don't you give an option to open every pdf in the landscape/portrait mode from the settings of the app itself. Leave it for the user to decide. At times user wants to open only pdf in landscape mode but use the phone in portrait mode, without everytime going to change phone settings of rotate on/off. You guys deserve 5 stars. :)

  6. Feature to access google drive files

    You can add a feature to access google drive files. It will be grate if you will add a feature to access any cloud storage files.
    I will be really happy if you'll add features to access any cloud storage files like Google Drive, Mega,Degoo and many more.

  7. Translator

    I am a Adobe Acrobat reader user. It's a very nice tool and believe it could be more. When I'm reading some text, I'd like to be able to see some translate of a specific word when I click on it and choose some option. It would be very nice.

  8. Acrobat for Android randomly deletes files

    I'll be reading a PDF and then close out the app. Every so often, it deletes the file I was reading for no reason! There's no rhyme or reason to when, as I don't do anything different when it does or doesn't delete files. Please fix this horrible bug!

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  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. Acrobat Reader for Android writes to the wrong ContentUri, overwriting the wrong file

    Environment
    Android >= N (which requires ContentUri instead of File Uris)

    Steps to repro


    1. In Dropbox for Android: Open file A with Acrobat reader

    2. In Acrobat Reader: Make edits to File A, don't save the changes.

    3. Switch app to Dropbox and open file B

    4. Open file B with Acrobat reader

    5. Return to Dropbox

    6. File B's contents are replaced with File A's edited content

    Expected Result
    File A should be saved.

    Observed Result
    File B is overwritten, and File A is not saved.

    Looking at the Intents and ContentProvider Queries. Here's the time line.

    In Dropbox: Open file A with Adobe.

  17. 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.
