  1. In the free Adobe Acrobat reader, for Windows 11, have the right margin tool bar default to HIDDEN when opening a PDF. I never use it, it takes up screen space and I want to see my PDF content in full screen when I open. There should be a user preference to have it hidden. FYI, clicking "Remember Current State of Tool Pane" in Preferences does NOT solve it.

  2. Have experienced an issue where when you click on the Properties button on the Print window, the Properties window is unclickable. This was raised by one of our users who had experienced this on multiple computers we had provided them over the years.

    Initially thought it was a printer driver issue, but I was able to replicate this on multiple different printer brands with different drivers (including the latest). Mainly tested with Konica and HP printers. This could be reproduced on different computers running Windows 10.

    To replicate, you have to click on the Properties a number of times and…

  3. an option to export pdf in txt files to be used in AI, for asking and for summarizing.
    When exporting ask the maximum number of tokens(words) per each file, because there is a maximum number of words in each file when uploading to ai, so adobe exports in several files so you can upload in services like keymate.ai, you could check keymate.ai, to understand clearly the requiriments.
    exporting a clean file whenever possible, without page number, headers, etc.

  4. There is a malfunction with the read out loud feature. It stops reading if it reached hyperlinked text or italics. In the attached doc, you can confirm that the read out loud feature will stop both on the second and third paragraphs when it reaches the hyperlinked text, as well as when the word DEI is italicized and bolded. It either stops or skips to the next page. This needs to be fixed and does not meet accessibility standards.

  5. I want to simply click then release the mouse wheel and then be able to scroll up and down, say, a 60 page document at the exact speed I wish, stopping and starting as I wish, simply by then moving the mouse on the mat up and down, no further button pressing required, no further clicking required. This is a standard, indispensably brilliant functionality I use on every single web page I visit, Word document or Email I read, it is only Adobe reader which does not have this basic mouse functionality, other PDF readers all have it as well,…

  6. To reproduce the issue:
    * Open any PDF;
    * Choose "Print" and select as printer "Microsoft Print to PDF";
    * Press the "Print" button;
    * Now Windows asks where to save the PDF file (Save Printoutput as);
    * Now press Cancel to cancel this window (for instance because this Microsoft Print to PDF was still active from a previous print, and now you wanted to print to a real device instead);
    * You get a message that the document couldn't get printed. Press "Close";
    * Now you get a message that an error occured during printing of the document. Press…

  7. Helping to organize favorites, some type of grouping, would be very useful.

    Folders would be a neutral way, stacks are fine as well. Any creative solution which helps to group different PDFs to keep them organized on quickly accessible would help.

  8. Allow a preference for "left-handed mode". When using a tablet, it would be much more convenient to have the scroll bar and side panel on the left-hand side as I am left-handed and using a stylus to annotate.

  9. The Adobe Acrobat reader User Interface (UI) does not append to the basic principle that allows each new document a new window. This is unusual as all different types of User Interfaces as a standard allow a new window for a new document. Having so many tabs confined within one window or instance of adobe is extremely limiting, particularly when a document is not always afforded the screen 'real estate' when multitasking with multiple programs. Secondly, when you need to access or read multiple documents, you need to easily be able to resize and manoeuvre multiple windows easily and having…

  10. The "new" Acrobat Reader freezes a vertical tool bar in the upper left region. This is an annoying pain in the neck What a bad idea. I had to go back to the "old". Please allow the user to put this tool bar wherever they want.

  12. Dear Adobe,

    I have been a user of Adobe Acrobat for many years. I have used the application to read, create, and edit PDF documents on my personal computer and mobile device.

    Overall, I am satisfied with the application, but I have an important complaint that I would like to bring to your attention.

    There is no option to set the reading mode as default in Adobe Acrobat. This means that every time I open a new PDF document, I have to manually disable the tools and options that I do not need.

    This situation is very frustrating, as it…

  13. Effectively, there are now 4 tool bars in Adobe Reader - one on each side of the document screen and two on top. While the loss of document space is not significant in general consider how even those minor losses affect users on laptops (varying screen sizes) and tablets. We have no option to dock and undock the floating tool bar with the rest of the tool icons on the second ribbon on the top. We also can't hide nor close the options list on the right-hand side of the screen although all these options are also available under editing…

  14. Sometimes after 2021, the 2nd row of toolbars were removed and seemingly replaced by QuickTools. However QuickTools, albeit it's name, is less proficient than having the second row of tools available, in sight, and ready to be clicked.

    Specifically, all I'm asking for is to bring back what was taken away just so that its inclusion can be set by the user. Personally, I'm on the side of a person who uses Adobe Acrobat Pro to edit documents and find that for the number of tools I use often, they're not as quickly accessible when having to click on a…

  15. You've provided toolbars at the top since the pdf reader existed. Now they are on the side and we cannot move them in this, the era of customization. Who thought this was a good idea?

  16. After the latest updates, Adobe Reader won't allow me to quickly scroll through pages using the arrows after zooming in/out with the shortcut ("ctrl" + "+" or "ctrl" + "-"). I must wait until the "zoom panel" is hidden before scrolling with the arrows once again. That makes me wait to long to scroll the page without using the mouse. So I please ask you to revert that. Please, make the focus stay on the page, not on the "zoom panel", after zooming in/out using shortcuts.

  17. On print dialouge, there's abillity to print "multiple pases per sheet ". It's great. but the problem is that, acrobat does automatic scalling for each page sepatetly and it causes disruption, and not esthetic on the printed page.
    Example: if the first page is cut and small, the size of A6 for ex', and the second page is in the size of a5, and I use on print dialouge "multiple pages per sheet" in the form of "1 by 2" (two pages aligned vertically on one sheet),
    acrobat enlarge each page to fit 50% of the sheet, so the first…

  20. I need to send out multiple documents at one go for signature. But today I heard that this feature had been disabled for all Adobe sign users on the latest version.

    I think this is a good, convenient, and hassle-free feature that must be added in.
    It really saves us a lot of effort.

    Please have this feature back on as soon as possible.
