  1. 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.

  2. 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. :)

  3. 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!

  6. Mobile version does not show presentation with video slides

  7. A button for manually change the theme to dark.

    In some devices when using a custom theme the app keep adapting it as a light theme...so a button to change theme manually to dark will be really useful.

  9. Sort option is not there in files

    There should be a sort option while going through the various files mostly according to the date.. it becomes difficult to find a file if one doesn't know the name of the file which one wants to find.

  11. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. 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

  17. 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

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
