  1. When you right-clicked, there is no UNDERLINE option but there is a strikethrough option. Adding an Underline option would be more productive for many users as well as appreciated.
    Thanks

  2. (i guess someone asked long time ago. but seems buried alive)
    add "copy link location" to adobe reader DC, when right click over a link in a pdf.
    why? this is a standard feature in most 2020 windows applicatoin. if adobe does not do it, i go somewhere else. adobe reader dc is not the only pdf reader in the world.

  3. It is already extremely annoying to hide elements in Acrobat.

    For reasons only known to your idiot design team, you persist in the view that the UI MUST BE RESET ON EVERY DOCUMENT LOAD.

    I read > 30 PDFs in a DAY. FOR EVERY ONE, I have to hide elements of the UI (typically the left side). EVERY F*** PDF.

    Today I find that hitting Ctrl-Home re-displays the full left bar.
    WHY.
    WHO THINKS THIS IS A GREAT IDEA - Lets re-purpose a standard document navigation key into a UI state change.
    PG UP to the top page does the…

  4. 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.

  5. I know that a lot of programs are switching towards a tab-based structure when opening several files at a time. But it sometimes is very handy to be able to open several PDFs in several windows. I know that this is possible by rightclicking the file etc., but I miss a setting that opens PDFs be default in a new window - and not in a new tab.

    Can there be some kind of "setting" that says:
    O - open PDFs in new tabs
    X - open PDFs in new windows

  6. Almost all other file cloud sharing and editing programs including OneDrive are able to create a cloud files access folder on the directory of the computer itself. They have had it for a while now and it is time that Adobe include have the same feature for Document Cloud. This can can clearly be achieved and should be included in an update considering the price paid to use this service. Thank you.

  7. 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…

  8. should have more pages view example 4 or 6 pages per view as some users use big screen and they can easily fit them using this feature instead of trying to use the zoom function.
    and perhaps to make the toolbar icons fit exactly and not have so much borders size

  9. When I click to link to a video clip, Acrobat Pro DC asks my permission since it might harm my PC, and it gives me a box to check to say 'No, don't ask me again'. Also, I can go to Edit > Preferences and say 'Always' grant permission for whichever available players are listed. That solves a serious problem for me since my PDFs have over 100 little video clips in them, and readers will hate having to give permission again and again and again. Unfortunately these capabilities exist only in Acrobat, not in Reader. When I click to…

  10. In some documents, there is by coincidence background colors that are very close to the color that Acrobat uses to enhance the visibility of searched-for text.

    In Acrobat preferences there is no way of changing this background color. For me, searched-for-and-found would be shaded a bright yellow. The default value is nice on a white background, but no use on documents that happen to have a similar (slate blue) color background.

  11. Adoraria que o Adobe Reader tivesse a opção de utilizar duas cores de realce de texto sem ter que ir em propriedades. Usualmente uso de duas a três cores para realçar meus textos e, se tivesse um ícone com seria bem mais fácil e usual.
    Obrigada!

  13. Restore the simple, clean layout of Reader 11, at least as an option, for those of us simple needs. I want a simple document reader, not an editor. Thank you.

  14. When Adobe Reader auto-updates, customized icons are reset to default. In my specific case, the "Previous view", "Next view", and "Fit to width" buttons disappear with irritating frequency.

    I see no reason why this behaviour would be intentional, so it must be a bug.

  16. With the new widescreen and big monitors sometimes a maximum of 2 pages side by side doesn´t take advantage of the screen size. Adding the option to view 3 pages or even 4 pages horizontally would greatly improve workflow.

  17. When I open multiple documents in Arobat Reader DC, each document appears in its own tab. But if I open as much documents, as they don't fit in the bar, there appear two arrow buttons (left and right) for to move the bar and show wether the first, or the last document.

    But clicking on the arrows to be able to click on a tab of the document you want to show can be boring and become uncomfortable. It would be nice to on mouse over the tab bar, activate a scroll function, so you would be able to use…

  18. If an audio file is enabled as an option to attach with the PDF file, shall make a perfect presentation file helps better in expressing our perspective & ideas more precisely both through by our words & voice
