  1. 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.

  2. Find option is getting cleared

    Press Ctrl+F
    Try to find any thing by typing in Find input box
    then click/Select any letter in Find Input box and try to type
    Previous data is getting cleared (very irritating as we have to type again whole thing)

  3. 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.

  4. BUG-Adobe Reader DC

    I created a form using Adobe Acrobat 9. I added a java script in the background to alert the user of any fields that were not filled out, including multiple signature lines. I tested the form frequently, using Acrobat 9, pro and reader DC, and it worked perfectly. Now I am getting reports from the users(using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC), that they are getting an error message stating that the signature lines need to be populated when the lines have the signatures inserted already.

    All users using the latest version of Adobe Reader DC, this issue occurred after the latest…

  5. Option to save changes to all open documents instead of individual prompt for each

    If I make changes to several open PDF documents, it would be better to have an option to Save All changes other than get a prompt for every PDF document.

  6. Prompt Automatic updates

    Hello there,
    Can you add a prompt for updates?
    "Adobe Acrobat requires an update that will require a restart before using the application. Update and restart or install later?"

    You see, when Acrobat updates automatically and I'm still running the app, I can still open things, but if Acrobat updates and I'm not currently running the app, then I can't open the app until I restart.
    In terms of workflow this means that to access a PDF needed immediately for work I need to save and close everything, restart, then reopen everything. This took about 7 minutes without including reopening…

  7. reduce size of toolbars buttons

    For mouse based users. Remove the excess space, and reduce the size of toolbars and buttons, to maximise screen space available for the document.

  8. Saving PDF in one click only

    I would like to be able to save a PDF in only one click.
    Currently, I have to click 3 times. I click on save.
    1. The 'Save as' windows open (this window is a fraud btw).
    2. Then I have to click on the folder that I want.
    3. Then I have to confirm the file name in the right folder.
    Other softwares (such as Foxit) allow to simply save in one click my PDF in its original folder. As simple as that.
    Thanks

  9. manual duplex printing

    Would be a magnificent addition if manual duplex printing could be selected for Adobe reader on Windows 10. Having read quite a few forums on the subject it would appear I'm not the only person who desires this.

  10. Scrolling preferences window

    Currently the preferences window is very hard to use and frankly, broken:

    You can't scroll with a touchpad.

    You can't scroll with a touchscreen.

    You can't scroll with a mousewheel.

    Scrolling over a combo box changes the setting >:(

    Content doesn't scroll when you drag the scrollbar!

    The preferences window cannot resize small enough for smaller screens.

    Overall: infurating.

  16. Adobe Reader in Preview Pane appears cut off when DPI scaling changes or when moved between monitors with different DPI scaling

    When viewing a file with Adobe Reader in the File Explorer preview pane, the file gets cut off if the DPI scaling level changes or if the File Explorer window is dragged between monitors with different DPI scaling levels. This is very annoying as it can make documents chopped off and/or hard to read. It seems to be an issue with Adobe Reader previewer not correctly/responding to scaling changes. As you can see in the image, the previewer is so cut off that you can't even see the controls or the scroll bar.

  17. Screen Filter

    I guess this falls under UI? I'm ADHD and it would be SUPER helpful to have a feature where I can dim the screen except for an area I'm currently reading. I read a lot of professional articles and when I go to write a note I completely lose my place. It could be just a static section and as I scroll the section stays the same so I'm effectively moving my page through it. I can cope if I print out the pages, but articles are frequently 12+ pages each and I'd rather save the paper and be able…

  18. Drag and drop files

    It's incredibly frustrating that a) the Adobe Document Cloud is so slow, and b) one cannot drag and drop files to folders. Organizing my PDFs has literally taken the whole day.

  19. regarding meaning search

    If we don't know meaning of the word while reading in a document then there must be search by web option along with the copy tab or you can simply add Dictionary into Adobe so that it will become more user friendly and more helpful to the person who is in need to search that meaning.
