  1. Build in an EPUB Reader and Allow for EPUB Embedding

    The Reader app (all platforms) should be more generalized to allow "reading" of both EPUB or PDF documents.

    Similarly, we should be able to embed an EPUB into a PDF file. (PDF has a robust method that allows it to embed other file formats.)

    Then, we should have a switch in Reader that would let a user to switch from PDF to reflowable EPUB and back again.

    While I understand that Adobe is investing heavily in Liquid Mode, this EPUB method would be far more reliable for people who need to control the design of both static and reflowable modes.

  3. Manual duplex printing

    Hello,
    After going through all options, I haven't found one feature I really desire. I would love to print brooklet, however, there is no option for manual duplex printing.
    Ex. after choosing brooklet, there is no option to choose it. The only way is the manual printing, ex/ 1 and 68, manual pages flip in the printer, 2-67... new page :)

    Would it be ever possible to print brooklet both-sided for printers not supporting automatic duplex?

    Looking to hear back from you guys and I believe you would add this feature in future realeases :)

  6. BUG: xfa.host.messageBox() fails on forms embedded in IE 11

    Reader DC v2020.012.20048
    Windows 10 10.0.19042 Build 19042, IE 11.572.19041

    PDFs embeddd in IE 11, or using the "Preview PDF" tab in Livecycle designer, no longer show user dialogs triggered using "xha.host.messageBox" or "app.alert". Other "xfa.host" functions still return data. When opening the PDF 'stand alone' everything works as expected.

    Here's an simple example form. The button should show two message dialogs as well as information in a text box. Interestingly the code continues to execute after the calls to xfa.host.messageBox and app.alert, and the text box is correctly populated.

  8. Book layout view

    Please provide a viewing option that allows the user to see proper reader spreads. (Spreads that don't shift the cover to the left side, so proofers can see actual reader spreads, with odd pages on the right and even pages on the left).

  9. Search Issue

    Just wanted to report a "problem"? When searching through a LONG document (over
    12000 pages), Reader DC gets confused and instead searches for just the first word in a search string (with multiple
    words). Once you start the search, it will hang up and eventually return when it finds the first word in the entered search
    string. If you then reposition back to the start of the document, you can then search for your entered multi-word search
    string and successfully find it.

  10. prompt before print - documents containing disclaimer section

    Quite often we print all the pages of the documents
    But most of the documents (Bank statements/ rental agreements / Utility Bills) carry a section for disclosure / disclaimer which are not needed when making copies.
    if you can prompt the user to proceed with the print or skip the disclosure section may save paper, save trees, save environment.

  12. implement proper Arabic RTL support for fill and sign tool

    First of the all it's not an IDEA it's a bug. As of the latest version (20.12.20048) Arabic RTL is broken; Even though letters are coming in the right order, they are disconnected. For Hebrew it should be okay since Hebrew letters are not connected.

    Adobe Reader DC prints only top part of text lines. View shows complete lines. The problem started a few days ago. Clean up of Adobe and re-installation didn't fix the issue. Drivers are up to date. Manipulation with setup (smooth lines etc) didn't help.

  14. this.media and this.pageWindowRect undefined intermittently

    I am using the Adobe Reader Javascript API and trying to access the this.pageWindowRect variable. I've found from various forum posts that this has to be 'enabled' by accessing this.media first.

    This works most of the time, but intermittently on certain computers, I find that both this.media and this.pageWindowRect are undefined.

    It is difficult to reproduce this exactly: sometimes it seems to work fine, and sometimes they seem to stay undefined. I've tried delaying my code - in case things are taking a while to load - and running the code from a document-level script, a button, and the console.…

  17. Allow open PDFs directly in/from SharePoint

    Need to allow users to open PDFs directly in/from SharePoint, and digitally sign/save directly back to SharePoint. This would mimic other office document behavior. Without this feature, we will be forced to abandon Adobe PDFs for digital signature requirements. Requiring users to download, sign, and upload (vice just sign) does not cut it.

  19. Please add Adobe Scan to Surface Pro (X)

    Dear Adobe team, please add adobe scan to Microsoft Surface Pro (X).

    At the moment, in order to use Adobe scan, you need to use your cell phone and then upload the scan to the cloud.

    On the one hand this is very time consuming, on the other hand it requires an active internet connection, which cannot always be guaranteed, especially when you are not at home.

    With an integration of Adobe Scan on Surface Pro (X), you could make very fast professional scans offline.

    I know that you have added Adobe Scan to the iPad, which could be compared…
