    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.

  2. 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.

  3. this.media and this.pageWindowRect undefined intermittently

    I am using the Adobe Reader Javascript API and trying to access the this.pageWindowRect variable. I've found from various forum posts that this has to be 'enabled' by accessing this.media first.

    This works most of the time, but intermittently on certain computers, I find that both this.media and this.pageWindowRect are undefined.

    It is difficult to reproduce this exactly: sometimes it seems to work fine, and sometimes they seem to stay undefined. I've tried delaying my code - in case things are taking a while to load - and running the code from a document-level script, a button, and the console.…

  4. Acrobat Reader DC - latest update for Win 10 2004 locks up

    Execute most recent AR DC (32-bit), click on any of the recently opened PDF files from list, file opens and content displays, then AR DC locks up, requiring use of Task Manager to kill it.
    Error message shows in popup window:

    Hi,

    Sorry to hear about the issue you are facing.
    1) Have you applied a latest patch of Win10-2004 after which you are facing this issue ?

    2) Could you confirm me the current version of Acrobat Reader DC that you have ?

    3) Could you please do Help → Repair Installation and see if it fixes the issue ?

    Thanks

  6. Have the feature to change the navigation pane from the left side to the right side of the screen.

    The idea is to be able to change the position of the navigation pane from
    the left side to the the right side of the screen.

    This would be useful when making presentations and using the thumbnail view to advance pages forward instead of scrolling which can sometimes be difficult to control.

  7. add copy link location to adobe reader DC

    (i guess someone asked long time ago. but seems buried alive)
    add "copy link location" to adobe reader DC, when right click over a link in a pdf.
    why? this is a standard feature in most 2020 windows applicatoin. if adobe does not do it, i go somewhere else. adobe reader dc is not the only pdf reader in the world.

  8. Reader DC freezes after some seconds

    I installed the latest version Reader DC on a Windows 7 64-bit pc, fater the old version freezed after some seconds. But the result is always the same, the new installation always freeze after few seconds.
    I tryed a new installation from scratch, restarted many times, disinstalled DC some times, used the Acrobat Cleaner tool, tryed to correct the installation, but nothing worked, DC always freezes and I have to kill it.
    The dump files below were collected at the same time (there were two AcroRd32.exe processes running at the same time, I do not know if this is normal).

  9. Allow open PDFs directly in/from SharePoint

    Need to allow users to open PDFs directly in/from SharePoint, and digitally sign/save directly back to SharePoint. This would mimic other office document behavior. Without this feature, we will be forced to abandon Adobe PDFs for digital signature requirements. Requiring users to download, sign, and upload (vice just sign) does not cut it.

  10. Ctrl home displays hidden side bar & bookmark bar - MOST ANNOYING

    It is already extremely annoying to hide elements in Acrobat.

    For reasons only known to your idiot design team, you persist in the view that the UI MUST BE RESET ON EVERY DOCUMENT LOAD.

    I read > 30 PDFs in a DAY. FOR EVERY ONE, I have to hide elements of the UI (typically the left side). EVERY F*** PDF.

    Today I find that hitting Ctrl-Home re-displays the full left bar.
    WHY.
    WHO THINKS THIS IS A GREAT IDEA - Lets re-purpose a standard document navigation key into a UI state change.
    PG UP to the top page does the…

  13. Create a robust student/worksheet mode for surfaceable/easy-to-use student tools with zero data loss

    In this era of online/distance learning, never has it been so clear that Adobe Acrobat Reader is sorely inadequate for everyday use for students. The PDF format has long been used by teachers for worksheets, but ironically only to print them out. Now that everything is digital, most routine worksheets in PDF format are not easily editable or annotatable for students to fill them out and return them! This is the moment the PDF format has been waiting for its whole existence, and it is coming up short. In practice, even when PDFs set up as fillable forms, they are…

  14. Allow opening several PDFs in several windows - not in tabs - by default.

    I know that a lot of programs are switching towards a tab-based structure when opening several files at a time. But it sometimes is very handy to be able to open several PDFs in several windows. I know that this is possible by rightclicking the file etc., but I miss a setting that opens PDFs be default in a new window - and not in a new tab.

    Can there be some kind of "setting" that says:
    O - open PDFs in new tabs
    X - open PDFs in new windows

  15. 4 pages view

    should have more pages view example 4 or 6 pages per view as some users use big screen and they can easily fit them using this feature instead of trying to use the zoom function.
    and perhaps to make the toolbar icons fit exactly and not have so much borders size

  19. Please add Adobe Scan to Surface Pro (X)

    Dear Adobe team, please add adobe scan to Microsoft Surface Pro (X).

    At the moment, in order to use Adobe scan, you need to use your cell phone and then upload the scan to the cloud.

    On the one hand this is very time consuming, on the other hand it requires an active internet connection, which cannot always be guaranteed, especially when you are not at home.

    With an integration of Adobe Scan on Surface Pro (X), you could make very fast professional scans offline.

    I know that you have added Adobe Scan to the iPad, which could be compared…
