  1. Fix issue: Cant repair PDF thumbnail issue on Adobe Acrobat DC Reader Windows 10

    I have had issues for several months with the thumbnails on PDF icons only. They are sometimes transparent, solid black, or have the PDF icon only. I have uninstalled and reinstalled many times. I have "enable PDF thumbnails in Windows Explorer" selected. Adobe Acrobat DC Reader is my default program with version 2021.001.20135. I have tried many things over a while, as this really was bugging me. Tonight I installed "Fixes for 64-bit Adobe Reader preview handler and thumbnails" from:
    https://www.pretentiousname.com/adobe_pdf_x64_fix/index.html#thank

    I figured I had nothing to lose and surprisingly it fixed the issue, especially as it hasn't been updated…

  2. Open list of pdfs in order

    When you select and open a list of pdfs, the tabs are currently opened in a seemingly random order. It would be very helpful if they opened in list order. I either have to open each file one at a time, or spend ages re-ordering tabs. It's frustrating, and impacts my work every day (because I need to open many pdfs at once, in order).

  4. Bug: FlatDecode does not work for all PNG images in Acrobat Reader

    Using Adobe Acrobat Reader PDF DC (21.001.20138) on Windows 10 to open the attached PDFs crashes. We create PDFs ourselves with several hundreds of images and embedding them using FlatDecode to reduce the size of the PDFs however very few images seem not to work in Adobe Acrobat PDF viewer ONLY. Opening the PDFs in Google Chrome as an example works.

  6. Printing mixed paper sizes no longer works in Win version of Reader DC

    I am an IT manager with 28 PCs and 5 Macs. Cannot print mixed originals with latest DC version. Mac version still works. I've had to reactivate XI on some machines because we rely heavily on printing mixed originals. Obviously XI is no longer supported and I am running into other issues with that.

  7. Download whole content on Cloud

    I am not able easily download my files made in Adobe Scan PDF app to my computer from web interface in a bunch. I am not obliged to download few files, as your system is not able download 600+ files even 100 files :(. This makes your Cloud application worthless.

  8. Full Text Index With Catalog: Issue with recent update

    Issue: previously developed .PDX (Full Text Index With Catalog) file no longer functions after most recent update (Version 2021.001.20135).

    When attempting to open a .PDX file created in Adobe Pro on a Windows 10 PC the file does not open. We also attempted to open the PDX file by clicking file>open, however, the file did not open.

    Prior to the update, when opening PDX files a separate search window would open and allow the user to search within the index.

  10. Bug in rendering all caps in a simple document

    I attach a simple PDF file allcaps.pdf . The file prints fine. But when rendered on screen, the text in all capitals is not properly rendered. At 400%, it is fine. See 100percent.jpg for the screenshot showing the funky rendering and 400percent.jpg showing that it is fine when zoomed in. The Chrome and Firefox PDF renderers have no issues with this file. This seems to relate to the resolution used in the setting Page Display -> Resolution. If I use system setting (96 pixels/inch) and then set the zoom to 96%, it is fine. If I use a custom setting…

  11. [FEEDBACK] "send report" floater doesn't recognize W10 default Mail app

    when clicking "help" > "generate system report" > "send report", the dialog that opens is completely outdated and not usable.

    it doesn't recognize the default Mail app on Windows 10, it just prompts me to use a web service like yahoo or gmail.

    besides that, the WHOLE adobe reader program is outdated. i'm 1000% sure it has code that is more than 10 years old and it definitely needs to be rewritten from scratch.

  12. Gray outlines around edges of transparent areas in embedded raster images

    This issue is best illustrated with an example.

    I generated a 5x5 png test image (test1.png) with transparent background and a 1 pixel wide green strip through the middle, embedded it into an svg (test1.svg), converted it to a pdf using inkscape (test1.pdf) and then viewed it in Acrobat Reader DC on windows 10, downloaded and installed today (2020-01-27). The result is shown in the attached image test1_acrobat_windows.png.

    Notice how the green band fades first to gray, then to white, instead of fading directly to white. The same pdf file rendered with PDF.js looks like one would expect, as seen…

  13. Fix Issue: Adobe Reader DLL Crash

    We have a web based application running on our Citrix environment. We are running Windows Server 2016 (1607) and Citrix VAD 1912 LTSR CU1. The users login to the web based application and eventually it will trigger the opening of a PDF within Internet Explorer. This process will work most the time but we find after the user does anywhere from 7-10 instances of the process Internet Explorer will crash.

    We first monitored performance on our server but identified there are no CPU/RAM bottlenecks. We even isolated users to one server to test and they still have the issue. We…

  14. Adobe Reader for Windows IE plugin not allowing ability to send Outlook email from open inbrowser PDF when using share button

    This is not an idea, it's a bug report. So when you try to use the "Share" button and "Send As attachment" via an open Adobe plugin PDF file in Internet Explorer, since the latest Office/Outlook update, Adobe is unable to open Outlook as the default mail client. It throws an error trying to open a new email. The next time I look at it I'll grab a screenshot of the error and attach it. It seems that the Adobe plugin for IE in particular does not work well with IE and the latest Outlook version right now.

  19. Can not add Thai comment

    This current version of Adobe Reader can not add a Thai language comment. When I start typing, it freezes a bit and terminates. It happens every time.

  20. Unable to terminate shared links to document. security risk

    When sharing a document, there is no ability to terminate the shared link, so it stays available forever

    This is high security risk

    I will likely have to close my bank account now

    Please add feature to terminate shared document links for security reasons
