  1. Web-Search option back to browser PDF-viewer right-click menu

    I have to work with PDFs a lot and I have to deal with them via browser. For the past years I haven't had any problems with using the browser PDF-viewer, but as of recently the option to do a quick google search in a new tab when highlighting text within a document and right-clicking on it is no longer available. There is 'copy', 'print', 'rotate', 'save as' but not the 'search the web for [highlighted text]' which was so very helpful and useful for me. Please, consider making it available again since I can hardly imagine how anyone would…

  2. Fraction line disappears with High-contrast colors (Kind of Dark Mode)

    In a pdf containing fractions, the line that separates numerator and denominator is not visible with High-constrast colors on, even if you zoom in. Tried with "White text on black" option

  3. Bad design: Stop forcing mouse pointer in Acrobat Reader

    Acrobat Reader DC changes the mouse pointer into its own scheme. Not talking about the specific tools, just the standard mouse when hovering over the Acrobat window.
    I don't have the best vision, so I have my Windows mouse pointer set to be very visible, or I will lose track of it on the screen. But when using Acrobat, I lose track of the pointer, because Acrobat INSISTS that I don't get to use my custom pointer, but rather use the virtually invisible Acrobat default.
    Why would Acrobat need to change the pointer? I get it for specific tools, like…

  4. Permanently keep comment toolbar open in adobe reader dc

    It's very essential more than helpful to stick the comment toolbar always on the menu so that we do not have to open it each time we open a document.

  6. Save PDF's to a topic (Like chrome groups)

    Lets you open a set of PDF's with one click of a button.
    You can add PDF's to this 'topic' or 'bookmark folder' allowing you to open every PDF you had been using for a certain task.

    E.G: Add all lecture notes from a subject to a topic. Open all of them with one click.

  7. Enable adding "Open...[file]" as icon/command to Quick Tools toolbar

    Allow/enable Adobe Acrobat Reader DC to add the "Open...[file]" command to the Quick Tools toolbar.

    I am using the most recent version of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC as of today 12/1/2020: 2020.013.20064.12623.
    When you are constantly opening files, it becomes very tedious to constantly be required to click on the File menu and then select Open... to open files. An Open... command icon is a standard quick command on most other software I have seen. I am surprised and disappointed that no one thought of this or made this a standard command icon on this toolbar. In fact, there are…

  12. Outlook windows on Windows 10 becomes inaccessible when trying to share pdf file withtin Adobe Reader

    When user tried to share pdf file from Adobe Reader(right hand upper corner) with share button via Outlook, it opens a new email. Until that email is sent, user is not able to access other Outlook windows open.

    Adobe engineering Team has requested to raise a request for this so they can work with Microsoft to enhance this behavior.

  13. jump to specific page in pdf document via URL (browser extensions)

    1. Brief title:
      Jump to specific page in pdf document via URL (browser extensions)

    2. Description of desired feature:
      When doing research for university, I often open many tabs at once. Sometimes books in pdf document form from my local file system. When closing google chrome and reopening on the other day, the document opens up at the first page. It would be nice if a) the document keeps its position when closing the browser and reopening, or b) via an #[pagenumber] at the end of the URI in the browser I can navigate to specific pages, especially on browser reopening -…

  18. Lose the white borders, and allow customizing background

    Acorbat Reader DC displays pages with unsightly white borders, including down the middle of any matter spanning page spreads, such as photographs.

    Also, I would like to be able to choose a custom background color, and hide all the toolbars, buttons, tabs and whatnot.

  20. Keeping full screen window at MacBook when connecting 2nd screen

    As stated in the title, whenever Adobe Reader is opened and full screen (maximized) with the green button on a MacBook and a second screen is connected, suddenly the Adobe app get's minimized whenever the second screen is opened. The app button has to be found and clicked in the dock and then put on full screen again, to have it enlarged and appearing on the screen.

    If this bug could be fixed, it would be great!
