  1. Horizontal AND Vertical resizing of the text fill

    When adding multiple lines of text, there is an ability to adjust the horizontal spacing (blue circle / double arrows).

    Can you please add the ability to adjust VERTICAL spacing?

  3. Improve UI Customization - Make the comments toolbar stay open automatically no matter what

    In my case, I'm perfectly happy with the way Adobe chose to implement this (I haven't actually tried the upgrade yet - I'm just responding to other comments here). In addition to documents that come to me with comments I need to see, I open plenty of random PDFs that have no comments, and in those cases I wouldn't want the pane to take up space.

    But I suppose if Adobe wants to make everyone happy, in a future upgrade they could expand the setting to be a three-item radio selection instead of a checkbox:
     Show Comments Pane upon opening…

  6. DocumentCloud.Abobe.com Does Not Work In Chrome

    Adobe is using old authentication where Chrome does not allow for pasting/loading sharable PDF links to Chrome -- Firefox still allows this old authentication, so I am only able to edit sharable PDF links in Firefox. Error messages are below:

    A cookie associated with a cross-site resource at http://assets.adobedtm.com/ was set without the SameSite attribute. A future release of Chrome will only deliver cookies with cross-site requests if they are set with SameSite=None and Secure.

  7. Pdf should have time bound password facility for data privacy and security

    Hello,

    This is Ankit. I am working as a project manager - mechanical design for complete project proposal of design and development of machines.

    For our project requirements, we need to send our design and manufacturing drawings to different vendors/ manufacturers.

    Because of data security, thiis drawings we are providing in hard copies instead of soft copies. Ad there is a chance of design copy in case of soft copy provision.

    Id in pdf we can develop such security facility, such that the PDFs that we send to any vendor/manufacturers, those PDFs must have password protected and the password must…

  8. Make it so it can be opened by other people, or make it free to convert into a USABLE format.

    I am trying to use this for my Eagle Project, but that was a bad idea, since no one else can open the files and I can't convert them without spending money on a very basic thing. Now I've got time invested which I would lose if I swapped to another, better product. I understand your business model is to get people with annoying free stuff so they buy the good ones, but hot dang is this especially bad.

  16. Bug: ECDSA signature encoded incorrectly

    I have encountered a bug in Acrobat Reader DC that is related to encoding of ECDSA digital signatures. The signature is composed of two numbers. It seems that when the highest bit of those numbers is set it is not padded with zero to make sure that the number is treated as positive integer. Instead it is treated as a negative integer. Adobe itself treats those signatures as valid, but other software refuses to accept them. Our nationwide eID uses ECC, so this bug impacts a large number of users. I can provide test file with valid and invalid signatures…

  17. Wrong portuguese translation for appearance of a certificate-based signature

    1. Brief description: Translation bug.

    2. Steps to reproduce:

      On a Portuguese language installation:

      i. Create an appearance for a certificate-based signature, as described on the link bellow:

      https://helpx.adobe.com/br/acrobat/using/certificate-based-signatures.html?mv=product#create_the_appearance_of_a_certificate_based_signature

      ii. Make sure to include the date in the signature text.

    3. Environment: Windows 10, Acrobat Reader DC - version 20.9.20067.384717 (Portugues)

    4. Expected result: Signature appearance should contain the text "Data" (The correct Portuguese translation for "Date"), followed by the date.

    5. Observed result: Signature appearance contains the text "Dados". See attached screenshot.

  18. Reader DC embedded in IE (Win10) cannot launch print dialog. (2004 issue)

    For all of the machines in my Win 10 2004 test group, the Reader plugin for IE (AcroPDF64.dll) has lost the ability to start the print dialog, either from the handy button in the border UI, the drop down menu, or Ctrl+P. In all cases nothing happens. There are a variety of versions on the affected machines but most of them are quite current (20.9.20063 and ...65). The problem is restricted to IE (11 I have no other versions to check) and the new windows 10 2004 feature build.
    If you're interested in any other data I can provide on…

  20. A dictionary (online/offline) feature

    I read a lot of research articles. And, I am pretty sure we all know how academic jargon can be exacerbated sometimes. Having an offline/online dictionary would be a great deal. Imagine if I can just double click/tap on a word and then the definition pops up! It can be a pain to switch from the Reader to a Browser at times for a definition.
