  1. When there are more than a page of recent documents, Adobe Reader opens unresponsive

    For the last few days, if I have more than a page of recent documents, when I open Adobe Reader, it immediately becomes unresponsive.

    I then have to open Adobe Reader by double clicking on a PDF document and clear the recent document list. Opening Adobe Reader this way means that it doesn't try to load the thumbnails for the recent documents, which is what I assume is the problem. Adobe Reader will then open correctly until the recent files list gets too big.

    As a workaround, I have just set the "Documents in recently used list" to 10 which…

  2. Make the hand pointer larger and more visible in documents

    As a result of COVID, we are now forced to have virtual tribunal hearings and present testimony in PDF via screen sharing.

    Witnesses often have to point out something in an exhibit - a sentence or paragraph or a point on a map and it is difficult for viewers to see the hand tool because it is too smaller to be easily visible and may not have sufficient contrast with document colors to stand out.

    At in-person hearings, it was possible for a witness to stand up a point with their hand to an item on the main display screen…

  3. 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 -…

  4. Where do I start?

    1) Don't pull info from Google to log me in. It automatically used the info from the wrong email account and it took forever to find the logout button (the symbol for my name/account info was not one I chose, it looked like a tiny pie chart).
    2) Make it affordable. $180 a year just to be able to edit documents is pretty steep. $25 a year....ok, I can see that. I expected to have full use of the system for that. I's even pay $50 per year. Maybe have multiple tiers for membership?
    3) Change the wording on your…

  5. 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!

  10. 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.

  11. 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!

  12. Hit "Escape" key to close "No matches were found" popup

    The popup doesnt contain a closing button, only an "OK" button, and pressing the Esc key does not close it, I believe for this kind of messages it is industry standard to close it with Esc key, as there are no other options, no repercussion and is meerly informative.

  13. Acrobat Crashing When Opening An InDesign Exported Interactive PDF

    I have no idea why interactive PDFs are no longer viewable with acrobat. Which is very annoying and stupid. Whenever I am trying to view an interactive element of the PDF, acrobat just tells me it is connecting and then suddenly closed the whole document (aka crashing). I don't understand why we are paying so much for adobe when they could not simply do their job. Very frustrating indeed. Worst user experience ever.

  14. Save multiple tabs at once

    I have multiple pdf tabs that I have open and edit. It would be more efficient to be able to save them all at once instead of going through each tab and saving them individually.

  15. Make Find results more predictable

    In a large PDF when using Find to search for a word followed by a number, the results are unpredictable. This problem is observed in several large PDF files prepared by different people on different PCs. For example, the text contains “Test 1” and “Test 2”. Searching for Test 1 also finds Test 2.

  16. By default, Snapshot should produce higher-resolution images

    The default resolution is too low in Edit, Preferences, General, Use fixed resolution for Snapshot tool images. The resolution should be fixed at a higher value, at least 300 ppi.

  17. Make continuous scrolling the default, PLEASE!!!

    I’m still baffled that the default scrolling for pages in Adobe Reader has the reader smoothly scrolling down the page, bringing the text up to eye level (no one reads down a page any more unless it’s a physical book) only to have it jump to the top of the next page as soon as the bottom of the page is in view on the screen. This results in interrupted reading and endless and annoying backwards scrolling to get back to where the reader was. I know this can be changed in the settings, but why isn’t it the default?…

  19. Magazine leisure view

    Likely to mac Preview, create a Xamp C++ feature that slideshows a presentation in 2 or 4 pages per frame substituing 5s /5s or custom in fullscreen mode that is good for distract reading on Wired, Paris Review, Entertainment Weekly and a myriad more good magazines. Slideshow preview is a trend now in a world where content creation and visuals are ruling the design ecosystem. After Adobe Max conference, I think this feature is a great idea, be sure it enters winning a gold medal and a #1 position on podium for public general disposition and magazine editors worldwide.

  20. 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.
