  1. Make fit width the absolutely default zoom

    I could never get the default zoom to be "fit width", even making the settings in multiple places in Preferences (Accessibility, Documents, Page Display). I'm finally fed up with Adobe Acrobat. It's so frustrating to click on a page on the bookmark, and having to adjust the zoom level EVERY SINGLE TIME. I found that Foxit allows me to make AND KEEP the selection of fit width.

  2. Ability to edit how equations are read aloud

    Allowing a person to go through and edit how some text is read aloud, for example equations. Instead of being read literally, letting a person select or highlight the equation and enter in what it means in natural language.

    Example: A{p(t), q(t)} is currently read as "A p t q t" when, in the context of the book, it should be "Some function, A, of the momenta and spatial phase space coordinates".

    I don't see a way something very context-dependent could be programmed in, so having a way for the reader to manually change how the equation is interpreted and…

  4. session saver

    When having multiple tabs open from diferent PDF documents, would be nice to have to option to save current session to close the program and be able to reopen as left in the previous state. Sometimes Windows is requiring a restart for updates and you don´t want to loose all the documents open for the next day.

  5. Get rid of 7-days trial pop up when using context menu

    As explained in this post (https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-reader-discussions/get-rid-of-7-day-trial-after-rotate-from-context-menu-within-plug-in/m-p/12897117#M90403), we'd like to get rid of the pop up when a user clicks on the rotate buttons in the context menu.
    In the base Adobe Reader it is possible to use other menu's, but when another piece of software uses the plug in, these menu's aren't available and users are left with either the rotate buttons which generate the pop up, or the only option Rotate to the right.
    Please let the rotate buttons in the context menu act without the advert for the 7-day trial.
    TIA!

  7. Toolbar button for Rotate (Quick Tools) suggests paid feature, really?!?

    Look, I get it. Reader DC is a free product Adobe would love to sell paid products/services. That's absolutely fine. But placing a toolbar button that suggests a basic feature such as rotate view may require the paid version/subscription is disingenuous at best. Seems a bit deceptive when it gets down to it. Not a fan Adobe!

  8. Make it easy to set UI preferences

    Would be nice to have a check box to say 'this is the way I want my UI setup', a la Microsoft File Explorer (use this view for all folders).
    The preferences as they are , are too complex
    Let the user set the window the way they want
    Then record that in the prefs with a single check box

  10. Hovering Reference Window of Images or Text Section upon click for temp reference while reading associated Text or Comparing Text/Images

    Mostly there are many documentations which associates lot of text info referring a specific Image or Diagram. While reading the text, it always required to imagine the diagram if it is in another page and having a window side by side when clicked on this image to use it for referring while reading the following text or comparing other diagrams could be very useful to many industries.

  11. Ensure interactive features of a PDF document works when being viewed through a browser

    This issue happens with keyboard-only and screen reader users.

    When exporting, saving or publishing a document as a PDF, the interactive features within that document (such as hyperlinks) don't work when the PDF is viewed in a browser (any browser). The only way an interactive PDF works as intended is when it is opened with Acrobat Reader.

    There must be an issue between the interactivity within a PDF and how browsers render that PDF document for accessibility. Can this be fixed so it doesn't matter whether a user has Acrobat or uses a browser to view a PDF and interact…

  12. Right-click search (Google, Bing or whatever...)

    Many times, I am confronted with a text string that needs a search (I generally use Google) and from within Acrobat I must select and copy the text, then go to the browser and search. I know it sounds fundamentally lazy...but these steps if repeated over and over take time. From the Chrome browser, we can select and then right-click text and "Search in Google" is an option. Acrobat is a much richer environment for working with the PDF but then the constant charade (for instance in a legal document with citations) of select, copy, open the browser, open or…

  14. Adobe Reader should be integrated with Microsoft Edge Chromium like with Internet Explorer

    Any chance that Adobe Reader will be integrated with Microsoft Edge Chromium in a similar way Adobe Reader is integrated with Internet Explorer 11 via ActiveX? Users opening pdf in IE are not even aware they see Adobe with plenty of features. ActiveX is legacy technology and not supported by modern browsers but maybe Adobe plans some deeper integration with Microsoft? I'm working in corporate environment with 70 housand users and received feedback that Microsoft Edge built-in pdf reader cannot open many pdf-s created in Adobe products.So in Edge browser there is option to redirect PDF to Adobe reader by…

  16. Fix Pan mouse option

    When using the Pan mouse function, the mouse often selects text/images rather than panning. There is already a Select mouse option, when using Pan, you should not be able to select text as that's not what you're attempting to do.

  18. Make the prompt to save the PDF optional

    Have an option or a call switch that can be made so that when a file loads it can simply close the file and not save it if the ADOBE is closed?

    We print labels and the user does not want to save the labels - merely print them so they would like to be able to see the labels and print then and then close the Adobe and not have to cancel the save.

  19. BUG: It is not possible to close the pop up and quit the application

    By Editing PDF fields in Adobe Acrobat DC user has to be logged in. By on click on edit, it opens the popup for "7 days test period". This pop up you can't close or you can't quit the application.

    Software:
    Adobe Acrobat Reader DC Version 2021.007.20099

    Hardware:
    Architecture: x86_64
    Processor: Intel
    Build: 21.7.20099.455081
    AGM: 4.30.111
    CoolType: 6.0.0
    JP2K: 2.0.2.49666

    Also, the webpage and the registration process is fully with bugs. I have the feeling, the Adobe lost the quality.
