  1. Incomplete highlighting

    ‘Some’ of my highlights seem to have disappeared after leaving and returning to the app. I have noticed that if you click (hold) on one highlight that you have previously done, or just make a new one so you have something to select, it gives you forward and back arrows in a dialogue box which will allow you to sequentially step through your highlights. By doing this I have noticed that it will show a blue box around text that I have previously highlighted (as shown in the bottom of attached photo) but is not showing it highlighted in colour.…

  2. Extract Pages

    Not rocket science, should be able to extract pages of PDFs to separate PDFs. Or split pages into separate files.

  3. Text under consideration gets to the centre of the screen

    While changing the color of the highlight of the selected text, the text gets to the centre of the screen.
    e.g. I have highlighted something with a yellow color, but I need to change the color now. I tap on the highlighted text, options pop up, I change the color. As soon as I tap on different color, ‘the text’ which is elsewhere on the screen gets to the centre of the screen. Its really annoying, why can’t the the text remain where it is on the screen. Why it needs to get to the centr of the screen. This…

  4. Bring back the original features

    Hey Adobe guys,

    Please please please, return to the original Adobe reader, your new release is absolutely horrible, it’s terrible, it doesn’t have half the features that the old one did, and most of our guys have deleted it off their phones and iPads because it just will not do what it is supposed to do, and what it did previously, and are now using an opposition programs like Nitro, which still has all the features we need and use almost on a daily basis.

    We need to be able to fill in forms via the app either on iPhone…

  5. bookmark panel

    It would be great to have the bookmark to appear permanently on the left hand side of the document for easy navigation.

  7. Since the last update, it takes so long to load a comment or show a highlight mark in big pdfs (Ipad 2018)

    Before the update, it worked perfectly even with big PDFs. Now, it does not take that much to open the file, but it does go with relay when I try to highlight a sentence or add a comment. Please, fix this as soon as possible. Thank you.

  10. Unable to share flattened copy.

    Since my last update, I’m unable to share my work forms in a legible form. The text is rotated 90 degrees on the form. “Share Flattened Copy” allowed the form to be sent in the correct orientation. Please fix this or tell me how to work around the issue.

    Die mit der Adobe Scan App auf dem iPhone gescannten Dokumente können nicht mit dem Programm Adobe Reader Touch geöffnet werden. Es werden nur weiße Seiten angezeigt. Die Dateien müssen erst komprimiert oder verändert und neu abgespeichert werden.

  13. Prendre un instantané impossible sur ipad

    It is impossible to « take a picture » in a pdf document on ipad (in the french version it is called « prendre un instantané » on PC).

    Please add this function very usefull on the ios version !!! I use it a lot to prepare power point presentation from scientific publications, not to extract text but to extract a snapshot of a graph or a picture.

    Thanks a lot

  16. Standard and Full Range highlight colors as a means of accessibility

    I need to use the mobile app to read and markup my research lit reviews on the go. I have used the desktop app (I have the cc subscription) just for that for years now and annoyingly, the highlight color does not match. The desktop app has a mustard yellow color as standard and the mobile app limits the color range of yellow to a bright fluorescent yellow that bothers the eyes, especially if you’re starting at screens all day. My docs now have two color highlights from interchanging use of devices. I have to manually go onto the desktop…

  18. Fill & Sign function does not allow you to continue after you’ve left and reopened a document

    I have been completing an online application using the “Fill & Sign” feature in Adobe. I saved and closed the application yesterday, however, when I reopened it today and attempted to make changes to the application, Adobe will no longer allow me to edit the areas I completed the day prior. Instead, it wants me to create a new text box rather than simply allowing me to edit the text that’s already been filled in

  20. View web based PDF on iOS device

    We use a website featuring a chat board where helpful articles are attached in PDF format. They are accessible from a Windows PC browser where you can open the document in Adobe. However, using iOS iPhone or iPad and the Safari browser’s internal PDF viewer, the document opens but it is unreadable, the text is garbled. You can move the doc to iBooks but the result is the same. Is there a way to add Adobe capability while using the Safari or any other iOS browser?

    For what it's worth you get a similar experience in Windows using the Firefox…
