  2. BUG - Filling out a form in AAR - text is white!

    I've never had this issue before -

    I'm filling out a form using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. I cannot get the text, checkmarks, anything to be any color other than white.

    Obviously this is a problem. Help...

  3. 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).

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

  10. implement proper Arabic RTL support for fill and sign tool

    First of the all it's not an IDEA it's a bug. As of the latest version (20.12.20048) Arabic RTL is broken; Even though letters are coming in the right order, they are disconnected. For Hebrew it should be okay since Hebrew letters are not connected.

  12. Permanently keep comment toolbar open in adobe reader dc

    It's very essential more than helpful to stick the comment toolbar always on the menu so that we do not have to open it each time we open a document.

  14. Bug in window resize if view has been rotated

    Acrobat reader DC. Windows 7 x64 desktop.
    Load a PDF (in my case some A1 building plans) into reader.
    Rotate view 90 degrees.
    Now re-size the reader application window by grabbing left or right edge.
    You will see the bug - can't really miss it. Document suddenly reverts 90 degress and stretches then rotates back when you let go.
    Not fatal, just unsightly.

  15. Cannot enter non-English input in form (Fill and Sign)

    Using the latest version of Adobe Reader DC, it seems to be impossible to enter non-English text (in my case, Hebrew) when filling a form. This feature used to work on previous versions of Reader DC (although with RTL issues for hebrew). Copying and pasting does not help either.

    Steps to reproduce: Open a form. Start typing in Hebrew.
    Expected result: Hebrew text appears.
    Observed result: No text appears, cursor does not advance.

    Environment: Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 2020.012.20048 on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit, English and Hebrew keyboards available.

    Adobe Reader DC prints only top part of text lines. View shows complete lines. The problem started a few days ago. Clean up of Adobe and re-installation didn't fix the issue. Drivers are up to date. Manipulation with setup (smooth lines etc) didn't help.

  18. Make changing accounts much easier!

    Make it easier to switch between accounts. It's such a pain in the booty and it's very frustrating I'm trying to change from my school subscription to my personal account. it feels like ten minutes and it should be about 30 seconds. They should make it easier similar to Instagram Hold a button and tap. Hope you agree and vote. Bye

  20. One button is too bad.

    Dear sir/madam,

    I use a lot of PDF files for my job. However, the version I use is 2015.020.20039. Because in recent releases, the buttons "Fit to window width and enable scrolling", "Fit one full page to window" and "View file in read mode" have been turned into one button. I have to open this button on every time. This is an extremely difficult use. Please give us the option of these buttons as single buttons as before. Thank you so much.
