  1. I am trying to print a single page of my PDF. I ask it to print page 2, and it prints page 12.

    When a single page or range of pages is printed, print the correct page(s). I was trying to print page 2 of my PDF, and page 12 printed.

    I got around it by going to page 2 and printing current page.

  3. Read Mode default

    I was asked to create a document in such a way that when it gets passed along it opens in Read Mode instead of with the comment, fill &sign and more tools panel open. Apparently that can't be done.

  5. Zoom Percentage For Full Screen Mode

    We Desperately Need To Be Able To Control How Much Zoom We Want In Full Screen Mode.
    The Ctrl+ And Ctrl- Just Take Such Big Steps And I Cannot Adjust The Right Amount Of Zoom I Want.

    I Hope It's Not Too Difficult To Understand Or To Implement ... Because Without This, I Cannot Use Adobe Acrobat/Reader

  7. Bug introduced in latest Adobe Acrobat Reader DC - no option for duplex printing

    After latest update to Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, the option to print on both sides disappeared. Had to edit the registry to prevent automatic updates (how are naive users supposed to cope?).

  10. there should be a way to set a default paper size for your printer in Acrobat Reader DC

    For some reason, Acrobat Reader DC assumes that all .pdf files will need to print on A4 paper. My printer is configured for Letterhead (8.5X11). I can reset the size when printing but should not need to do so. I'm fairly certain that none of the institutions sending me .pdf files are using A4 as they are located in Canada and Canada is still using Imperial sizes to maintain compatibility with the USA.

  11. Bug: Adobe Reader 2020.006.20034 - Incorrect service name for DDE communication

    The issue exists in all Adobe Reader versions released in 2020.

    To establish DDE communication with Adobe Reader, a client needs to know DDE service name. It can be read from the following entry in Windows registry:
    Computer\HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\acrobat\shell\open\ddeexec\application
    This entry is created/updated during Adobe Reader installation.
    Adobe Reader 2020.006.20034 saves the following value to this entry: "AcroViewR19". Our application reads this value and tries to establish DDE connections with Adobe Reader. However, DDE connection fails when "AcroViewR19" is used as service name. When the registry value is corrected to “AcroViewR20” – DDE connection successfully establishes. Any update of…

  12. Allow selective print of tiles from Poster print / Tiled print

    When printing a "Poster" or tiled printout, where the PDF is not scaled but is printed on multiple sheets, one should be able to selectibely only print certain sheets. This is useful, for example, if you have a 15 or 20 sheet print of some architectural plans (or any large file) and you have a printer error with 2 pages to go. Now you have to re-print everything, which could take an hour or more depending on printer, and is a waste of energy, ink, an paper and harms the environment. Another use of such functionality is if I need…

  13. (The free version) On macOS you should NOT break normal system behaviors like "Print to PDF".

    That is a system behavior and is expected of all apps on macOS. "Print to PDF" is NOT a creative function, but an output function. It would be useful for getting around bugs etc, related to printing.

  15. google drive save conflicted copy

    Currently, when I use Adobe Acrobat to access a pdf on my Google Drive and comment on the pdf, saving the file to my Google Drive will sometimes create a new file inside my Google Drive instead of overwriting the original. Then I will have two files like "original.pdf" and "original (Conflicted Copy date and time).pdf)" Even when I go out of my way to click "Save As.." and overwrite the file in my Google Drive with the original name, Adobe will still save the pdf as a separate file called "Conflicted Copy." There needs to be a better way…

  16. Acrobat Reader DC incorrectly changes ∊ (unicode U+220A) to ε (U+03B5) when copied from a PDF File

    Hi Adobe,

    On Microsoft Windows 10, Acrobat Reader DC 2020.006.20034 incorrectly changes ∊ (unicode U+220A) to ε (U+03B5) when copied from a PDF File and pasted into another program.

    I get this:
    'THIS NOUN' ε 'THAT WORD'

    But, the expected result is:

    'THIS NOUN' ∊ 'THAT WORD'

    Thanks

  17. The Cost and Subscription Options

    I'm an occasional user that only needs some of the premium features in Reader once in a while. An example would be adding or removing pages. $13.49 per month is absolute robbery. Instead, I use free programs when needed. Why not offer reasonable pricing plans, with annual payment options that non-commercial users can afford. Adobe thinking seems to be they'd rather have 100% of $0, rather than price it reasonably and add millions of new paying subscribers. Adobe is the best product; why not price it cheap and drive the copycats out of the market.

  19. Bug: Problem with Windows Scaling high dpi

    When I click on "search for new updates" on my acrobat reader on my windows laptop surface laptop 3, there appears a new window where acrobat checks whether there are new updates, but this window is blurred. You have to adjust your programm script so that acrobat reader can handle this situation. I think it has something to do with the windows scaling function. I have set the scaling as recommended on 150% on my laptop. If acrobat would be programmed correctly this shouldnt matter. Please fix this. As you can see in the attachment its badly blurred.

  20. Fix failure to start up

    Conditions: Windows 10. My internet was flaky, I think because my Ethernet wired interface has a hardware problem. For instance, Chrome was very slow or would not load a website at all. Edge would load sites usually when in this condition. I do not know how, but it did.

    When in this hobbled operational mode, if I clicked a PDF file in explorer, or an attachment in my email reader, Acroread would simply not start up at all. I'm sure the executable began momentarily because I could see a little spinner appear momentarily, but nothing appears on screen. No splash…
