  1. Make continuous scrolling the default, PLEASE!!!

    I’m still baffled that the default scrolling for pages in Adobe Reader has the reader smoothly scrolling down the page, bringing the text up to eye level (no one reads down a page any more unless it’s a physical book) only to have it jump to the top of the next page as soon as the bottom of the page is in view on the screen. This results in interrupted reading and endless and annoying backwards scrolling to get back to where the reader was. I know this can be changed in the settings, but why isn’t it the default?…

  3. Illegible characters on the print instead of the legible original text seen on the screen

    No way to print legible text from the last version of the Acrobat Reader .....20048 (no metter if ENG or CZE version). The reinstalation has not helped. OK print of the document only from th FoxitReader and finaly from the older version of the Acrobat Reader 2019.008.20071.

  4. Magazine leisure view

    Likely to mac Preview, create a Xamp C++ feature that slideshows a presentation in 2 or 4 pages per frame substituing 5s /5s or custom in fullscreen mode that is good for distract reading on Wired, Paris Review, Entertainment Weekly and a myriad more good magazines. Slideshow preview is a trend now in a world where content creation and visuals are ruling the design ecosystem. After Adobe Max conference, I think this feature is a great idea, be sure it enters winning a gold medal and a #1 position on podium for public general disposition and magazine editors worldwide.

  5. No confirmation or undo when deleting signature

    1) Have a Signature
    2) Click the Sign button
    3) Click the little minus button next to your signature
    4) The signature is immediately and irrevocably deleted.

    This also works for Initials.

    Need a confirmation window, or the ability to undo the deletion.

    If I didn't have a scanner handy after accidentally doing this, I would be royally screwed right now.

    (I have not investigated whether this behavior is configurable, but even having this as a default setting seems like a very bad idea)

  7. Allow user to open documents in read mode by default

    Allow users to tick a box in preference so that it becomes possible to open all pdf documents in read mode by default, and revert back to a more complete mode only when needed.

  8. Fix "Install font pack" issue for 2020.012.20048

    Adobe Reader DC updated to Continuous Release 2020.012.20048 (File version 20.012.20048.6926). I open a SCANNED PDF and immediately get error reading:
    A font package is required to correctly display this page. Click "OK" to direct your browser to download the add-on from adobe.com. After installation, you will need to close and re-open the document to correctly view contents dependent on these newly installed fonts.

    I click OK and eventually get directed to: https://supportdownloads.adobe.com/thankyou.jsp?ftpID=6839&fileID=6837

    This page has a "Download Now" button but when clicked does nothing - no download is initiated and I get no warning of a popup being blocked.

  10. BUG: xfa.host.messageBox() fails on forms embedded in IE 11

    Reader DC v2020.012.20048
    Windows 10 10.0.19042 Build 19042, IE 11.572.19041

    PDFs embeddd in IE 11, or using the "Preview PDF" tab in Livecycle designer, no longer show user dialogs triggered using "xha.host.messageBox" or "app.alert". Other "xfa.host" functions still return data. When opening the PDF 'stand alone' everything works as expected.

    Here's an simple example form. The button should show two message dialogs as well as information in a text box. Interestingly the code continues to execute after the calls to xfa.host.messageBox and app.alert, and the text box is correctly populated.

  11. Cursor Default

    Please allow the option for Windows default cursor. It is impossible to find the cursor set that is default in a document. That little Cross cursor gets lost so easily and I have to move mouse from one end to the other until something reacts and lets me know where it is then try to guess its location as I move towards my click.

  15. Book layout view

    Please provide a viewing option that allows the user to see proper reader spreads. (Spreads that don't shift the cover to the left side, so proofers can see actual reader spreads, with odd pages on the right and even pages on the left).

  16. Search Issue

    Just wanted to report a "problem"? When searching through a LONG document (over
    12000 pages), Reader DC gets confused and instead searches for just the first word in a search string (with multiple
    words). Once you start the search, it will hang up and eventually return when it finds the first word in the entered search
    string. If you then reposition back to the start of the document, you can then search for your entered multi-word search
    string and successfully find it.

  18. prompt before print - documents containing disclaimer section

    Quite often we print all the pages of the documents
    But most of the documents (Bank statements/ rental agreements / Utility Bills) carry a section for disclosure / disclaimer which are not needed when making copies.
    if you can prompt the user to proceed with the print or skip the disclosure section may save paper, save trees, save environment.

    Dark Mode. Just like the mobile / android version has. Change documents with white background into dark / black background, and dark text into bright text.
