  1. Most people are moving to Microsoft Edge Chromium and within our company we plan to move to this browser as a default.
    These new chromium browsers don't support Active x and OBH's.

    Currently the Adobe Extension from the Chrome Web Store seems to be the only Extension Solution to open PDF's from Edge Browsers but all this does is open the document in the installed Application and not within the existing Frame, as the Extension previously would.

  2. Hello,

    It would be nice to have the hand tool navigation on touchscreens include options for continuous pinch zoom (at the time of writing, the app zooms in steps) and momentum scrolling.

    These features already work using a MacBook touchpad (for example).

    Kind regards.

  3. I work with many files in Acrobat Reader, like 5 files, the same files for days together. I would love to have an option where I can make Acrobat remember the files that I opened in the last session and restore the same with a single click (like that we get "Restore" when the program crashes and we open in just after that. This is simple but saves a lot of time from user end.

  4. Using Reader DC 2021.001.20145 on Windows 10 (20H2) in Desktop mode (tablet mode off).

    When accessing system menu (restore, move, size, minimize, maximize, close) by clicking icon in upper left of window, the menu items work fine. But when accessing the same menu from the taskbar (hover, wait for popup, right-click on pop-up), the functions are ignored (minimize, move, size), act differently (close), or act strangely (maximize).

  5. Press Ctrl+F

    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)

  6. 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.

  7. 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…

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

  9. 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. 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.

  12. In February version of Acrobat Reader, a blue button that invite us to try acrobat pro is visible. But in a Corp environnement this is not suitable.

    The button is visible even if acrobat Pro is installed on computer.

    Please give us a setting to hide this button.

    Attachement : screenshot of button

  13. In your recent update these features no longer seem to properly work:

    PDF Thumbnail previews in Windows Explorer : this use to show the first page in a PDF as a JPG image. It no longer does.

    Text in dialog boxes becomes small when document is open. Can no longer change the size of the fonts in these dialog boxes. They change to very small font sizes when a document is opened, difficult to read

  14. 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.

  15. 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. I have the PDF view on my other monitor, not the laptops. When a dialog box comes up (search: no more instances) it ALWAYS goes to the laptop screen and is hidden. And of course it is model, so I need to find the stupid thing and press OK (another design friggen issue!)

    To do this, I have to go down to my task bar, on the PDF viewer icon, right click to show all windows, and then finally the model dialog box pops up, on the laptop screen, not where the other window is.

    PLEASE FIX!

  19. At the moment, endnotes in pdfs are hyperlinked to the endnote page, but there is no "round-trip" backlink from the endnote entry number back to the point of origin in text - as there is in epub documents.
    This would be a very useful feature!

  20. I've found in using Acrobat Reader DC with an account for Mac OS X that when you open the application and are prompted for a password, you cannot click the Quit option (among others) in the application menu in the toolbar nor can you click the red X button in the upper left of the main application. You can't even close out Reader by right clicking in the dock and selecting Quit, something about the authentication form completely blocks other interaction with the application. Neither can you click the X in the authentication form. It is active, which is very…
