  1. This bug has been reported before. It was claimed that it was fixed in version 22.2.20191 (see this discussion: https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-reader-discussions/adobe-stays-open-after-quick-print/td-p/13068306), but we can still reproduce it in current version 23.8.20533.

    The problem is that when a print command is issued to Acrobat, the application opens, prints, but does not close again when printing is finished.

    We have a customer needing to print batches containing hundreds of documents. Because Acrobat misbehaves, a batch will get stuck whenever a PDF is encountered. The only work-around we found in Acrobat is to manually close the application after each print job. Of course…

  2. If "All Tools" was a living creature, I'd destroy it with Samurai inspired violence!

    If you add a "disable sidebar" function to a near future build, I'll build you a state-of-the-art spaceship that's fitted with cannons that shoot armies of blood thirsty killer crocodiles @ all your enemies. The crocodiles have cybernetic eyes that shoot swarms of heat-seeking killer bees that were trained by the legendary Samurai, Miyamoto Musashi.

    Discuss my "Once In A Lifetime" offer with your DEV team & report back.

  3. hide the "all tools" toolbar by default. this toolbar is only needed sometimes. this feature is enabled for the exception instead of the rule. since it takes up one-third of the display window and is on the left, it is distracting. when it was on the right, it wasn't as distracting. when viewing many pdfs over the course of the day, having to give up one third of the screen to a useless toolbar is frustrating.

  4. **** annoying to close the tools when opening a document. The "last tools state" doesn't work in the preferences. Gone back to the old look-n-feel.

  7. All Tools automatically opens when a pdf is opened. Meaning to read it in full view you have to close it every time. This is extremely annoying and makes me not want to use pdfs as much. There should be a setting to have it closed by default. And the "Remember current state of Tools Pane" has no effect, seems to be a bug.

  8. The app should respect the OS setting to always show scroll bars. Instead, the scroll bar disappears after scrolling even though the OS setting is to always show scroll bars.

    This is an accessibility problem and makes it impossible to drag the scroll bar with a pen.

  9. You need a command/keystroke to move to the same page position but 1.0 pages up/down. So if I'm zoomed in to a region on page 33, let me see the same region of page 34. Not one screen down, not to the top of the next page, not anything else. Don't move me; just change the page. (I believe this is the same in Acrobat and Acrobat Reader.)

  10. In the 'New Acrobat' UI, I got a new floating bar on the left top. However, sometimes it hovers over the content and is annoying. I want to have a option/button to collapse it to a small size, and on mouse hover/click it will be expanded again.

  11. I am constantly fighting to see portions of the doccument i am working with in Acrobat reader. Either the tool bar (That I don't use) is in the way and appparently can not be hidden according to every search I have done or, the search pop up reminding me to try AI Assistant is covering a good chunk of the landscape when I need to keep the search field open. Why can we not hide the floating toolbar and why after acknowledging the AI popup does it have to keep popping up? It's annoying and feels intentionally counter productive.

  12. Poster print doesn't work in latest version of Adobe Reader - tries on both windows and mac

    On mac - Once you have deselected print as image - you can try and print as poster - BUT it only prints to 1 page - what ever you select in the options - you simply cannot print over multiple pages.

    On Windows - It will only allow you to print the 1st page of the poster print - you can not select or print any of the other pages.

    Can this please be fixed
    I am using latest version of Adobe…

  13. When using the search function in Adobe Acrobat, the (extremely annoying) AI "help" prompt blocks text on the document. This should be removed or made smaller. Or, the option to remove generative AI from preferences should be made available for all users.

  14. As of Adobe Reader 24.x, the setting "bAcroSuppressUpsell" no longer suppresses the upsell button. It now suppresses all items in the tools pane.

  15. In the digital realm, cookie-cutter solutions simply won't suffice. To truly stand out and make an impact online, businesses need to embrace the power of customization offered by a specialized custom web development company.

    One of the primary advantages of custom web development is the ability to tailor every aspect of your website to your unique needs and preferences. From the layout and design to the functionality and features, every element can be customized to align with your brand identity and goals. This level of personalization not only enhances the user experience but also helps you differentiate yourself from competitors.

  17. There should be an option to open files/adobe with Tools and Bookmarks NOT enabled. It is very annoying and inefficient to close those 2 windows every time i open Adobe to read a PDF. See pic of how files open by default, not very useful to see the document contents with a smaller window/screen without closing the undesired left/right bars.

  18. Stop the bookmarks opening automatically every time a PDF is opened. They have to be manually closed every time to provide more space to view the architectural drawing. Its very irritating and a very bad idea to have them opening every time as the default setting. They should be closed unless needed, not open and need closing every time.

  19. New layout of Adobe Reader is utterly counterproductive, and makes everyday use of Adobe Reader much slower and confusing.
    I, as well as many other users I know, am using Bookmarks and Pages in at least 95% of times when I use Reader. Therefore, they should be placed on the left, where they are expected to be (it is simply a standard for similar "master-detail" situations).
    Also, primary tools, like paging, zoom-in and -out, are placed in a bottom-right corner, just like they were hiding?! But these are the basic tools, and they must be placed centrally, either on top…

  20. Whenever I decide to go full-screen with my Mac (the green button in the top left corner, not the Adobe reading mode), it is almost impossible to choose from the different tabs that I have open, and it is even harder to close them. Why?

    The new Adobe Reader layout has the tab bar higher and closer to the Mac menu bar. While you enable full-screen, the Mac menu bar is hidden and you only access it while moving the cursor to the top of the screen. Now, as Adobe's tab bar is on top, whenever you try to select…
