  1. Add authentication option (Face ID, Touch ID, passcode or similar) to launch/open the app

    This feature request is for mobile devices.

    What?
    I would like a preference setting to be added allowing me to decide if launching the app requires user authentication or not (for instance: Face ID or Touch ID in iOS).

    Why?
    This would add a layer of protection in case someone can access the device while unlocked. Acrobat can be used to store sensitive information. In addition to theft, there might be trusted users of the device (e.g. family members) that one doesn’t want to be able to access contents of stored files, rename, move or delete files.

    Other apps can……

  2. Read aloud capability

    I believe there should be a “read aloud” capability. If Microsoft edge web browser can do it I’m sure adobe can.

  7. Multiple Conflicted Files

    Right after update to the latest software version, I keep having issues with having multiple conflicted files. I understand that if I edited the same pfd or open the same pdf on different devices will cause conflicted file, but I was just opening pdf on my iPad (without doing any editing or highlight/ underline on the pdf) for some weird reason I will have multiples conflicted files right after that. I tried to close the file right after I open it and still it will create multiple conflicted files. Please fix this bug for ***** sake. I’ve been using Adobe…

  9. 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…

  10. Read out loud

    I would like to have the read out loud function on the iPad version. This would help me get through a lot of doc faster.

  12. Enable support for multiple instances of adobe reader in iPadOS

    iPad OS allows apps to be opened in more than one instance. This is different to the open request for tabs support. Multiple instances of an app is supported by the OS, and it allows two instances of adobe to be open side by side in split screen mode. It also allows for adobe to be open full screen whilst additionally having another instance open in slide over.

    Very useful, saves us from having to close a document, open another one to check something, and then having to reopen the initial document. Allows greater flexibility than just tab support as…

  17. Download files to ios

    I have a PDF in the cloud, but I need to download it to my iPad. I am able to download using the iPhone app, logged into the exact same document cloud, but I don’t seem to be able to download the document to my iPad. This is a document that I need to access when not connected to the internet. So far, I have spent about 25 minutes sending it to myself, downloading to Dropbox, and god only knows what else. This really shouldn’t be that difficult.

  18. Quick access to Bookmarks

    Bookmarks panel should be more accessible. One tap instead of two. And since the thumb is closer to the bottom of the screen the bar with tapable options should be at the bottom.

  19. 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.
