  1. Bug: Problem with Windows Scaling high dpi

    When I click on "search for new updates" on my acrobat reader on my windows laptop surface laptop 3, there appears a new window where acrobat checks whether there are new updates, but this window is blurred. You have to adjust your programm script so that acrobat reader can handle this situation. I think it has something to do with the windows scaling function. I have set the scaling as recommended on 150% on my laptop. If acrobat would be programmed correctly this shouldnt matter. Please fix this. As you can see in the attachment its badly blurred.

  2. see multiple - previous, next and/or out of sync - pages at once or a quick view between them

    a feature that allows selection of a random, or multiple random, pages to view on the same screen or view with a quick action while reading.

    much like when physically reading a technical publication that refers ahead or behind to photos or diagrams, you'll start to hold the page(s) with maybe a finger or two so you can quickly switch back and forth.

    it would be nice to select a certain random page or maybe 2-3 to show on screen while reading your current page.

    another option would be the ability to select 1 or multiple pages to view then…

  4. Bug? Problem with Color Management (wide gamut monitor)

    When viewing PDF documents containing images on my wide gamut monitor using Acrobat Read DC (Windows 10), images have oversaturated colors.
    The same PDFs looks OK when opened in Photoshop or previewed in Bridge.

    See also this thread:
    - https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-reader/problem-with-color-management-wide-gamut-monitor/m-p/10982293

    I have done some systematic testing. There seems to be a color management problem/error in the (urrent Windows version of Acrobat Reader DC:

    Procedure

    I have made two test images:

    • image-AdobeRGB.jpg: - a JPEG image file with an Adobe RGB (1998) embedded color profile
    • image-sRGB.jpg: - a JPEG image file with a sRGB IEC61966-2.1 embedded color profile

    For each image…

  5. allow multiple PDF files to be converted/exported to EXCEL files (or other) in a single operation

    allow multiple PDF files to be converted/exported to EXCEL files (or other) in a single operation.
    Specify an INPUT folder (instead of ONE file); specify an OUTPUT folder (one folder only); select conversion format (like EXCEL); then convert each available PDF to the chosen output format, one output file for each input pdf

  6. Fix failure to start up

    Conditions: Windows 10. My internet was flaky, I think because my Ethernet wired interface has a hardware problem. For instance, Chrome was very slow or would not load a website at all. Edge would load sites usually when in this condition. I do not know how, but it did.

    When in this hobbled operational mode, if I clicked a PDF file in explorer, or an attachment in my email reader, Acroread would simply not start up at all. I'm sure the executable began momentarily because I could see a little spinner appear momentarily, but nothing appears on screen. No splash…

  7. flipping effect/ animation while reading

    Scrolling or viewing pages should also have an option of viewing with a flipping animation. Many pdfs are huge files to read and an animation effect like this would make the reading experience more natural and smooth.

  9. Dismissing Notifications

    Once signed in to adobe creative cloud and viewing notifications through clicking on the bell symbol - you are only able to dismiss certain notifications. For example you are unable to dismiss or delete notifications regarding the deactivation of fonts from font pack resulting in a long backlog of notifications you can't get rid of.

  10. Making removing of an open pdf-file more convenient

    Hi, I have a question about Acrobat Reader, wenn I have an open pdf-file and want to remove it form the folder on my computer, I get the message that removing is not possible because the file is opened. Would it be possible to add an option "Close and remove". This happens to me a lot during my working day and this solution would be very convenient for me.

  12. Improve support for read-aloud

    I find read-aloud a a very useful feature as it allows use of an additional sense of hearing for absorb the content of a document. I suggest following features
    1. Configuration to ignore figures, listing and side bars
    2. Support for other languages. As of now my version of Acrobat reader can not read Hindi (Indian language).

    Thanks

  14. Error when fax with "sharp mx-m266n fax"

    When faxing a 2 page pdf.
    When "Print" > select printer "sharp mx-m266n fax", it shows correct at abode preview. But at the preview of the fax driver, both page shows the content of page 1. And the receiver of the fax receives 2 copies of page1.

    Tested normal on Chrome and PDF Architect 7. However, also failed on some other PDF readers.

    Please advise.

  15. ctrl + del and ctrl + backspace on fillable forms do the same thing

    When filling in boxes on a pdf, ctrl+del and ctrl+backspace do the same thing. Ctrl+backspace should delete the previous word, but it deletes the next word instead. In other places, ctrl+backspace functions properly.

  17. Preview Pane speed

    Under a Windows 10 environment, when navigating a folder with the Preview Pane enabled, the time for the preview pane to populate is greatly increased. Under Windows 7, the preview pane was immediate and crisp. Windows 10, however, the preview pane takes (literally) over a full second to populate, during which time you also cannot click or down arrow to the next file until it displays. I've duplicated this issue on multiple PC's. The thumbnails show immediately, but the preview pane seems to have to actually load each file--every time. Even bouncing back and forth between two files takes over…

  18. OCSP uses HTTPS even when OCSP URL specifies HTTP

    Recently we have noticed certificate revocation checking failures with the latest version of Acrobat Reader DC.

    In the Department of Defense, the OCSP URLs in the DOD PKI are "http://ocsp.disa.mil". These servers work. But they do not respond on the SSL-enabled port (https). But when we try to verify signatures with Acrobat DC, we get connection failures. Network tracing has revealed that even though the URLs in the certificate specify http, Adobe Reader is trying to connect to the https port, and this gets timeouts.

    Environment: MacOS X
    Steps to reproduce: Get a certificate that has an OCSP URL…

  19. Incorrect DDEEXEC value for Adobe Reader DC 2020.006.20034

    The DDEEXEC value is not being updated after the Adobe Reader DC update to version 2020.006.2034.

    The value remained at AcroViewR19 and needs to be AcroViewR20

  20. share multiple pdf in documentcloud.adobe.com or Adobe Reader DC

    I need for the service you have provided me for many years to be fixed immediately. I need to be able to send multiple pdf files and pictures at the same time in one link. Please email me as soon as this feature is available again. In the meantime I will be looking at other software providers to fill my needs.

    Sincerely,
    Susan Hatfield
