  1. No sharing?

    It is absurd that the Android mobile app no longer allows sharing to snything other than your own cloud service. The app is totally useless

  2. PDF to DOCX conversion on mobile doesn't work

    I tried to convert a PDF with embedded images to DOCX but none of the images transferred over. Furthermore, I tried converting it to .DOC and the new file wouldn't even open. For a $24/yr feature that doesn't even work, this is extremely irritating.

  3. Bug? New documents not appearing in DC on decive.

    Hello,

    I am having difficulty with the Reader not updating my Cloud documents in my device.

    I'm presently using the latest Android Version, but the issue started with the version I had previously installed on the device; I am not certain of that version, but it was Version 16 series.

    What is happening is any documents added to the cloud from my device are not appearing on the Reader on my LG Risio; however, when I use Adobe reader in my tablet or laptop, the cloud documents appear. The same is true for other functions such as renaming the file;…

  10. Full JavaScript API in mobile app

    I have a sheet that can only be edited on the PC because the app doesn't support the full JavaScript API. Is this possible to have supported?

  11. Signature in PDF not appearing in Android Acrobat Reader


    1. Place a signature in a PDF document using Acrobat Reader on iOS (v12.1). Save signed document as PDF_A.

    2. Open saved document PDF_A with Acrobat Reader in Windows 10 laptop. Can view the signature.

    3. Place another signature in the opened document, save the PDF as PDF_B.

    4. Open this PDF_B having two signatures with Acrobat Reader in either iOS or Windows, both signatures are visible.

    5. Open same PDF_B with Acrobat Reader in Android (8.1.0, MIUI 10.0.2.0), can only see one signature only which was created in Windows, but not the one created in iOS.

    6. Place another signature using Acrobat Reader Android, save…

  12. Needs a way to open and read from sd card

    Can't find a way to do anything with files on my sd card. Only shows files on the device itself and eats my internal memory.

  13. 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.

  14. Full screen mode

    Full screen mode. Max out the screen used for the document. No menu bars or other clutter on screen.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.!

  20. Syncing devices

    Hello,
    I have a problem because my devices don't sync the annotations neither the highlited sentences. Also, there's no option where I can do it manually. I find it really strange because I have access to all the documents from the cloud, but they look as if I'd never read them.
    I would like to be able to sync all the notes notes I make, not only the documents.
    I'll be looking fordward to an answer. Thanks!
