  1. 4 pages view

    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

  2. Provide Reader with the Same Permission Capabilities Acrobat Has

    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…

  3. Permit me to configure a background color for searched-for-and-found text

    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.

  4. Mais marca textos.

    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!

  6. Restore the simple, clean layout of Reader 11, at least as an option, for those of us simple needs

    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.

  7. Bug - Adobe Reader resets customized buttons on update

    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.

  9. Add more Page Display options

    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.

  10. Enable scroll function on multiple tabs (open documents)

    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…

  14. My Android Reader can invert the display (white text on dark BG). Can the Desktop app do the same, easy on the eyes?

    In mobile Reader App, I can change the display to Night Mode (inverted color, white text on dark BG). Can I do the same in desktop Acrobat DC?
    Please make it so.

  15. 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
    Rachit

  17. I dunno, make it function ? That would help Me.

    after 1.25 hours of wasted time chasing my tail I copied and pasted into Word, then printed, faxed,copied and snail mailed the document in 12 minutes, 1.10 hours faster than Adobe could not email the document to my own email address.

  18. Improve UI Customization - Make the comments toolbar stay open automatically no matter what

    In my case, I'm perfectly happy with the way Adobe chose to implement this (I haven't actually tried the upgrade yet - I'm just responding to other comments here). In addition to documents that come to me with comments I need to see, I open plenty of random PDFs that have no comments, and in those cases I wouldn't want the pane to take up space.

    But I suppose if Adobe wants to make everyone happy, in a future upgrade they could expand the setting to be a three-item radio selection instead of a checkbox:
     Show Comments Pane upon opening…

    Hello,
