  1. allow users to keep a toolbar displayed

    Allow users to keep a toolbar displayed. I have to constantly go to View<Tools<Comment<Open to display the Comments toolbar.

    I should have the option of keeping that toolbar open and have it persist even to another session using the software, until I instruct otherwise.

  2. Replicate the Adobe Acrobat Internet Explorer extensions over to Microsoft Edge Chromium

    Most people are moving to Microsoft Edge Chromium and within our company we plan to move to this browser as a default.
    These new chromium browsers don't support Active x and OBH's.

    Currently the Adobe Extension from the Chrome Web Store seems to be the only Extension Solution to open PDF's from Edge Browsers but all this does is open the document in the installed Application and not within the existing Frame, as the Extension previously would.

  3. Read Out Loud Feature Needs Serious Improvement

    Suggestions for this feature:
    1. Add read out loud to the toolbar for easier access, including pause and play options.The read out loud feature is currently very inaccessible from the "view" drop down menu.
    2. Allow user to choose where to start reading and stop reading by highlighting text, rather than the limited ability to only read full pages / the entire document
    3. Upgrade voice - please consider adding a more adaptive voice to the program for read out loud. the system default is not pleasant for listening and we know the technology exists to have more advanced AI…

    Hi,
    Thanks for connecting with us. I went though all the requests suggested by you. I would like to inform you that :
    For #1, Shortcut keys exist for Pause, Play like Ctrl+Shift+Y/V/B.
    For #2, the feature is supported. Click on any paragraph after enabling Read Out Loud and it will read the paragraph. For specific content read, we have informed the management and have been kept in radar for future improvements.
    For #3, you can add the voices though system language setting and the voices will be visible in Acrobat if they exists on system.
    For $4, we have informed the management and have been kept in radar for future improvements.

    Try the latest enhancements and features on the latest version of Acrobat Pro DC.

    Thanks

  4. Cursor Default

    Please allow the option for Windows default cursor. It is impossible to find the cursor set that is default in a document. That little Cross cursor gets lost so easily and I have to move mouse from one end to the other until something reacts and lets me know where it is then try to guess its location as I move towards my click.

  6. 2D rendering

    large file with 2D graphics with areas of transparency is displayed with long delays compared to competing for software. I have Intel UHD 630 graphics and NVidia MX150 which is great for games with full HD resolution. There are also no problems with UHD. On the other hand, displaying in Adobe a 2D file when scrolling, zooming in or out has delays of up to a second!
    No options in the graphics acceleration panel. Was not found.
    This software uses only one GPU not even in full. Furthermore, 3D graphics work excellent but not 2D.

  7. Allow user to open documents in read mode by default

    Allow users to tick a box in preference so that it becomes possible to open all pdf documents in read mode by default, and revert back to a more complete mode only when needed.

  8. Error message

    After using "Fill & Sign" I get this error message. (See the attached picture.) This error is caused by only one PDF document which is not possible to upload there due to copyright restrictions. (It is a drawing for production.)

  10. Arrow Key Scrolling Incrementation Consistency

    So I have noticed that the arrow key scrolling when using the hand tool has somewhat inconsistent increment sizes. If I press the up or down arrow key once the distance scrolled is about half a line. If I hold down an arrow key to begin the fast scrolling, then let go and continue pressing the arrow keys rapidly, the increment is more like a line and a half.

    I find this inconsistency extremely annoying, especially since the fast scrolling is redundant because of the page jumping that is achievable with the left and right arrow keys, and that the…

  11. Upto spelled incorrectly on Toner saved message

    In Adobe Reader DC version 2021.001.20145 on Windows 10 a message box pops up about percentage of Toner saved. "Upto 15% of Toner has been saved while printing this PDF". The word "Upto" is missing a space.

  12. Backwards and forwards arrows for hyperlinks

    It would be useful to have arrows like in web browsers to move smoothly in documents with cross-references and bookmarks.
    I am a latex user and often in pdfs produced by latex for scientific documents there are hyperlinks for equations, figures and bibliographical references in text. It would be useful in reading, once you have checked the reference to be able to go back.

  15. Hand tool on touchscreen suggestions

    Hello,

    It would be nice to have the hand tool navigation on touchscreens include options for continuous pinch zoom (at the time of writing, the app zooms in steps) and momentum scrolling.

    These features already work using a MacBook touchpad (for example).

    Kind regards.

  16. cursor size for visual impaired users

    please add and allow the cursor to change. I am visually impaired and have enlarged Window mouse pointer. When mouse pointer gets into the Reader, it "disappeared" and was so small and hard to follow!

  17. Create an option in UI to incorporate an option to retain multiple files opened in the software with a single click

    I work with many files in Acrobat Reader, like 5 files, the same files for days together. I would love to have an option where I can make Acrobat remember the files that I opened in the last session and restore the same with a single click (like that we get "Restore" when the program crashes and we open in just after that. This is simple but saves a lot of time from user end.

  18. "highlight current bookmark" does not work any more

    When the above option is selected the hightlighting of the current bookmark should follow the reading, i.e. the hightlighted bookmark should be synchronous to the currently read text. This was the case in former Readers but does not work any more.

  19. Fix read mode to NOT go to full screen mode to have only the document content visible in a window. You should have separate full screen mode

    I need to read a PDF while using others apps at the SAME TIME; Reading the documentation of the other program from a PDF file.

    I don't need toolbars. I dont' need status bars. I don't need menu bars.

    I can press ctrl-f If I want to search for something, I can press ctrl-p if I want to print the document. I don't need a buttons or search bars for those to be constantly visible.

    If I need to use ANY other functionality, I can right-click and all that functionality could be put into that right-click menu.

    I ONLY WANT…

  20. system menu from taskbar issue

    Using Reader DC 2021.001.20145 on Windows 10 (20H2) in Desktop mode (tablet mode off).

    When accessing system menu (restore, move, size, minimize, maximize, close) by clicking icon in upper left of window, the menu items work fine. But when accessing the same menu from the taskbar (hover, wait for popup, right-click on pop-up), the functions are ignored (minimize, move, size), act differently (close), or act strangely (maximize).
