  1. 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.

  3. 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…

  5. Acrobat lite add-on to Reader

    It would be nice if you could make a more affordable version of Acrobat, or an add-on to the Reader, with just TWO capabilities: merge pdfs and password protect. Users like me do not need to modify pdfs, convert from MS Office, sign, etc. etc. etc. And once or twice a month need to merge or password protect so a monthly fee to Adobe is rediculous for occasional use. If built into Reader, which I'm sure you won't do, that would be very nice of you so that users like me could do the simpler tasks without having to use…

  8. ******** couldn't save could have lost a day's work stupid POS

    someone already said it Ill say it again **, I just wanted to SAVE. To use the SAVE function which has presumably existed and been replicated successfully on every other word processing program and PDF editor. Nice little gadgets and ads ** *** too bad I CANT SAVE ANYTHING.

    I am using an up-to-date Windows 10 computer.
    When trying to save, a totally blank, white 'save as' prompt appears that does nothing, leaving no choice as far as I could find but to exit without saving. Thank ******

  10. RichMedia mp4 playback with Flash disabled not working

    According to:

    https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/acrobat/kb/flash-format-support-in-pdf.html

    "Playback of non-Flash media (excluding *.flv and *.swf) content in PDFs will continue to be supported."

    I tested the sample-formatter-richmedia.pdf file in Acrobat Reader "Continuous Release 2020.009.20074" with Flash disabled and the video was not playable.

  11. auto scroll loop

    Auto scroll and speed choise are great but when the pdf arrives at the end and you want to see it many times you have to go again at the beginning and choose auto scrool.I suggest to implement the feature for the document to automatically loop and play over and over until you decide to stop it. Windows Media player has a repeat feature and power point also.I would like the same for acrobat reader.
    It would be great for educational purposes to repeat the same information until it is memorised.(REPETITION IS THE MOTHER OF RETENTION..)

  16. BUG: Adobe AR DC 2020.009.20074 - Inconsistent Error Converting PDF to Excel

    Windows Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 2020.009.20074 inconsistently fails to convert our PDF data to a viable Excel file. When it fails instead of creating an All-Borders grid around the data, it will create a Picture of the border box and clump the data together in a jumble below.

    As we use macro's to manipulate the converted data, this obviously presents a problem to us.

    We have captured some files during the conversion process, and made a Word conversion of our data to check it - and what we found makes us wonder where this may be coming from.

  17. Allow options to show dimensions in feet and inches rather than just inches.

    I work with floor plans all the time and it bugs me that when all I need to do is a simple area measurement of feet and inches I have to settle for an area of just inches. I would like to have the option to at least pick how I want my measurements to appear on my document for more efficient measuring.

  20. New Adobe Reader Function Freeze Panes ?

    Dear Adobe Team,

    could you add a function / command inside the view menu of the free adobe reader that works similar to the function 'freeze panes' in Microsoft Excel.
    That would allow to freeze headings/captions if you use the pdf reader for presentations of management reports etc.
    This could be useful in video conferences as well when you only can present a section of the full report.
    If this would work for picture, text and table objects would be nice.

    Unfortunately I have not seen such a function in a pdf reader before.

    I do not know if this…
