  1. Extract Pages

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

  2. Digital certificate signature (in iOS app)

    Windows app has the option to sign a PDF with Digital Certificate or Digital Signature(once you have your own Digital Certificate installed in the computer), but iPad and iPhone don't.

  3. Comments on liquid mode

    Liquid mode is fantastic! Absolutely love it and I'm not even sure how the magic works. It would be amazing to be able to highlight and comment on it too. Cheers

  5. Bug Report: Fillable forms on iPad, when the document is signed it remains fillable!

    First I create a fillable form using Acrobat Pro (latest version)
    - Then I add the document to Dropbox
    - I open Dropbox on my iPad and select the file
    - I opt to open the file in Adobe Acrobat (as they are linked)
    - I fill out the fillable file and then sign the bottom (adobe doesn’t support iPad signing if the document has been made will a sign area in the form).
    - Once I add the signature (using fill and sign) the document warns that ‘Signed documents are no longer editable once saved).. which is exactly what…

  6. Print pdf sewing layers

    I own 80+ pdf sewing patterns that are layered. Our laptop is undependable and I would like to be able to print a single size layer from the file in Adobe from my phone.

  7. Bug: Cannot mark up a PDF that has editing password applied

    STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE ISSUE:

    Open the sample PDF file (attached) in Adobe Acrobat on your PC. In Acrobat, select 'File' > 'Properties' and note that a password has been applied to restrict editing of the document with 'Commenting', 'Filling of form fields', and 'Signing' unrestricted.

    Now, open this PDF on your iPhone/iPad using the Acrobat Reader app. You will find that even though the PDF has Commenting enabled, there is no option provided to the user to either add comments to the document or apply mark-up using the Apple Pencil.

    If you open the same PDF file in another…

  10. Reading progress and mark as read

    It would be awesome if Acrobat would show the reading progress and "read" in the files view. It would me the perfect PDF eBook reader. 😊

  11. Remember page location in Liquid Mode

    Right now, it is not remembered that:
    1. A PDF file was viewed in Liquid Mode - pdf should return to liquid mode if it was last viewed as liquid mode.
    2. The page location when file was last viewed with liquid mode.

    This, on top of the lack of dark mode for liquid mode, makes it very unpractical to use, since liquid modes are usually used to long-form papers for me. This is a feature that exists in all the other modes, so should apply to liquid mode too.

  12. Show use of layers

    Hi,
    It would be so handy if you’ld make the option for viewing layers within the PDF possible. It’s a feature in Acrobat on computers and would be much appreciated in the app as I use multi-layered PDF’s for work all the time (making them on a PC in Illustrator and saving them as PDF, but for presentations elsewhere I use my iPad, but then miss the opportunity to show the full range of the multi-layered PDF).

    Thanks in advance, Kris

  14. Eraser tool and bookmarks option

    An eraser tool would be excelent , i always have to use "undo option" for all of my adnotations , which is quite frustrating because sometime it will clear all my word, not only a letter. and also not handy at all.

    Also would be great to introduce "create a bookmark option" - because sometime there are long documents that you have to make your own bookmarks as you do on android ( would be great if you could name them yourself , that isn't even on android).

    And special bookmark button would be great too

  15. Different file updating procedure on different iPads

    I use the Acrobat app both on my four iPads and an iPhone7 to frequently update and revise my existing pdf files with newer versions of themselves. On my older iPad 2 and iPad Mini, as well as my iPad fourth-generation, this is a very easy process. I email the PDF to myself and then choose to open it in Adobe. Then, I move it to the folder its earlier version appeared in and it automatically replaces the prior version. That easy process doesn’t exist on the Adobe App designed for my iPad mini 4.

    On my iPad mini 4,…

  16. Open PDFs in OneDrive for Business with Intune MAM

    OneDrive for Business and Adobe Acrobat Reader for Intune (iOS) is MAM Enabled. When trying to open a PDF in ONeDrive for Business from the Adobe Reader application, you get the error "The document cannot be opened because it is corrupted or damaged."

    The Adobe app can open PDF's from a personal OneDrive, its only when on a OneDrive for business controlled by Intune MAM (App Protection Policies) it has the issue.

    I believe this is a bug with Adobe Acrobat Reader for Intune (iOS)

  17. Document Properties: Cannot view page size/dimension

    Adobe Acrobat Reader is great, but unlike the Mac or Windows app, I'm unable to get the app to display the document dimensions.

    For example, when I try to view an A3 document, it's shrunk to what looks like letter size document on the screen. There is no control to zoom in or out, or to see the document at the actual size.

    Also, when I try to print the file, there's no way to select the document size if I have tabloid paper in the tray.

  19. Highlighting

    Dear Admins,

    It would really be a great feature if u can add an option to see the highlighted parts of the pdf you’re reading, in case you need to review the pdf later .. they will act as a summary for the important notes u need to see

  20. Highlighting in “reading mode”

    It would be really nice to be able to highlight in “reading mode.” “Reading mode” is much nicer to read in than “single page”—there are fewer distractions—but I would love the ability to highlight! It would make it feel more like reading a real book or document. Thanks!
