  1. 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…

  3. Create your own bookmarks and edit an existing highlight.

    Give us the option to make bookmarks , as it’s already possible on Androids. Would be better for rapid searching in long documents like books.

    Also give us the option to edit an existing highlight , i mean we need to be able to extend that highlight as it already possible on Androids. Here we have to delete that highlight and create a new one and thats not handful at all.

  5. 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.

  6. 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,…

  7. 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)

  8. 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. 😊

  9. 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…

  11. 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

  12. 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

  14. 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…
