  1. Can not add Thai comment

    This current version of Adobe Reader can not add a Thai language comment. When I start typing, it freezes a bit and terminates. It happens every time.

  3. I bought a computer ,I pay to use the internet . I can't read a news item without paying .

    The computer is useless as it's xp. I get advertising all the time. I will soon have to pay to see the screen . billionaires squeeze you dry. How much more do these big companies want. Why don't they REDUCE THEIR PRICES. instead of giving billions to charity.
    WHAT ABOUT us. ? Oh of course you're too busy isolating on your Abu Darbi island.

  4. Unable to terminate shared links to document. security risk

    When sharing a document, there is no ability to terminate the shared link, so it stays available forever

    This is high security risk

    I will likely have to close my bank account now

    Please add feature to terminate shared document links for security reasons

  5. Keyboard shortcut for fill & sign

    Please add a keyboard shortcut for fill & sign! Adding this speeds up the process for signature on PDF documents for confirming invoices on the logistics/business side of things.

    It doesn't take much effort to add the option for custom keyboard shortcuts too if you can add this to the paid Acrobat version.

  6. Need to test and support Adobe Reader DC on Amazon Workspaces

    Please look into testing and supporting Adobe Reader DC (as well as Acrobat DC) on an Amazon Workspace. We use AWS with a good number of our user population and need to be able to get support with this environment. With DC being a cloud based system, I would expect that virtual workstations would be a supported environment. It is all in the "cloud."

  7. Version 2019 of Reader has display issues that you don't see in 2020 or Pro

    A client organisation (and I imagine many, many other people) are running on version 2019 of Reader.
    Unfortunately v2019 has display issues and can add what look like black or yellow felt tip dots and lines at areas where effects overlap.
    They are not seen in Pro or in v2020 or in v2015 of Reader. Just v2019. So what we see in our pdfs, is not what our clients or their audience might be seeing. So every user of Adobe CC is exposed. Our work might not look the way we intend if a viewer is using v2019of Reader. And…

  8. The download site seems suspicious. The use of Times Roman made me think it was a fake site and made me very reluctant to download and insta

    Standardise the appearance to match the rest of the Adobe family.
    The Step 1 Operating System list is hard to understand and I battled to find my Mac OS. The install took ages and has now hung twice without managing to install. Overall, the experience is unsettling and worrying.

  9. PKI signing under macOS Big Sur (11.01) doesn't not work

    PDF digital signature using PKI card reader or stored soft token does not work. It seems like adobe reader dc (2020.013.20074) does not detect the card reader. I can also configure a soft token, but cannot choose the soft token to be used as digital signature.

  11. AIP-encrypted PDF files may not open

    Hello.
    I installed the AIP plugin on Acrobat Reader DC(version: 2020.013.20066) and now I can view labeled PDFs.

    However, if you open the PDF file many times, it may not open properly.

    This is an excerpt from mip_sdk.miplog at that time.

  13. Adobe Reader bug when using Fill & Sign function

    We are using Adobe 2020.013.20066 and all our team experience the same bug. When entering a text block using Fill & Sign; the entered text not only appears on the page where it was originally entered but it then 'appears' on random page throughout the document.

    Attached example shows screenshots from a document pasted into a word file.

    More examples on the Adobe's forum: https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-reader/bug-in-adobe-reader-when-entering-text-field/m-p/11647598?page=1#M73751

    This bug surely needs to be fixed.

  14. Disable "Who Needs to Fill and Sign"

    I open hundreds of PDF's a day and having to click who needs to fill and sign is unbearable. Please make an update where we can disable it, I'm literally looking into buying a different program, that's how difficult this has made my work life.

  15. Save PDF's to a topic (Like chrome groups)

    Lets you open a set of PDF's with one click of a button.
    You can add PDF's to this 'topic' or 'bookmark folder' allowing you to open every PDF you had been using for a certain task.

    E.G: Add all lecture notes from a subject to a topic. Open all of them with one click.

  16. Enable adding "Open...[file]" as icon/command to Quick Tools toolbar

    Allow/enable Adobe Acrobat Reader DC to add the "Open...[file]" command to the Quick Tools toolbar.

    I am using the most recent version of Adobe Acrobat Reader DC as of today 12/1/2020: 2020.013.20064.12623.
    When you are constantly opening files, it becomes very tedious to constantly be required to click on the File menu and then select Open... to open files. An Open... command icon is a standard quick command on most other software I have seen. I am surprised and disappointed that no one thought of this or made this a standard command icon on this toolbar. In fact, there are…

  18. translation error in german version

    As a suggestion of Improvement, I just want to let you know there is a translation error in the german version. "Working on it" when searching in a large document doesn't translate to "Daran arbeiten..:" in this context. It has no meaning. You should consider renaming it to something like "In Arbeit"...
