  1. The sequence of UI actions below causes a repeatable freeze for me.

    (Acrobat Reader DC Continuous Release 2020.006.20042
    Windows 10 Home version 1909 build 18363.815)

    1. Open a pdf
    2. Ctrl-H (Read Mode) [use full height of screen]
    3. Ctrl-0 (Zoom to page) [that's a zero, not a letter]
    4. (optional): read document
    5. Esc (leave full-screen mode)

    Expect: exits full screen view, restore document in pane with bookmark sidebar

    Actual: exits full screen view, but freezes. Window still occupies full screen. Content areas are BLACK. Menubar and tabs reappear, but tabs are unresponsive. Right sidebar border appears, but not left sidebar.

    Workaround: after freeze,…

  2. Please review and consider improving Two Page View to make easily readable and navigable when moving from page to page or view to view.

    Currently the fonts look compressed and readability is less than optimum.

  4. The issue exists in all Adobe Reader versions released in 2020.

    To establish DDE communication with Adobe Reader, a client needs to know DDE service name. It can be read from the following entry in Windows registry:
    Computer\HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\acrobat\shell\open\ddeexec\application
    This entry is created/updated during Adobe Reader installation.
    Adobe Reader 2020.006.20034 saves the following value to this entry: "AcroViewR19". Our application reads this value and tries to establish DDE connections with Adobe Reader. However, DDE connection fails when "AcroViewR19" is used as service name. When the registry value is corrected to “AcroViewR20” – DDE connection successfully establishes. Any update of…

  5. It would be very useful if there was a split view feature where you could view two sections of the same document at once. Just like some text editors where you can grab a control at the top or bottom of the vertical scroll bar and pull it to make two views. Saves a bunch of time when looking at documents like datasheets, specifications, etc.

  8. In other pdf's, the selection tool is working fine.
    but in this pdf file, whenever I am trying to select the text or highlight the text, it will highlight or select text in between lines space.
    I have attached the screenshot in attachments.

  9. When printing a "Poster" or tiled printout, where the PDF is not scaled but is printed on multiple sheets, one should be able to selectibely only print certain sheets. This is useful, for example, if you have a 15 or 20 sheet print of some architectural plans (or any large file) and you have a printer error with 2 pages to go. Now you have to re-print everything, which could take an hour or more depending on printer, and is a waste of energy, ink, an paper and harms the environment. Another use of such functionality is if I need…

  10. That is a system behavior and is expected of all apps on macOS. "Print to PDF" is NOT a creative function, but an output function. It would be useful for getting around bugs etc, related to printing.

  11. When a single page or range of pages is printed, print the correct page(s). I was trying to print page 2 of my PDF, and page 12 printed.

    I got around it by going to page 2 and printing current page.

  13. When a mouse hovers over a sticky note, its content should normally be displayed in a popup.

    However, whether it will actually appear depends on the direction from where the mouse approaches the sticky note.

    See the video for an illustration: https://youtu.be/3RXThFqGhDY.

    I suggest that the content be displayed no matter how a user moves the mouse onto the note.

  14. Currently, when I use Adobe Acrobat to access a pdf on my Google Drive and comment on the pdf, saving the file to my Google Drive will sometimes create a new file inside my Google Drive instead of overwriting the original. Then I will have two files like "original.pdf" and "original (Conflicted Copy date and time).pdf)" Even when I go out of my way to click "Save As.." and overwrite the file in my Google Drive with the original name, Adobe will still save the pdf as a separate file called "Conflicted Copy." There needs to be a better way…

  15. I'm an occasional user that only needs some of the premium features in Reader once in a while. An example would be adding or removing pages. $13.49 per month is absolute robbery. Instead, I use free programs when needed. Why not offer reasonable pricing plans, with annual payment options that non-commercial users can afford. Adobe thinking seems to be they'd rather have 100% of $0, rather than price it reasonably and add millions of new paying subscribers. Adobe is the best product; why not price it cheap and drive the copycats out of the market.

  16. I saved a 3D-PMI file into PDF file format. When I use my desk computer with NVIDIA Quadro K2200 to view the notes in PDF, the item selected cannot highlight in red. But if I use my laptop with Intel integrated graphics card, the item selected can highlight. How this Issue happens? I have updated my driver already and my DirectX version is 12.0. All settings in AdobeReader are the same.
    Could you tell me how to solver this problem?

  19. When I click on "search for new updates" on my acrobat reader on my windows laptop surface laptop 3, there appears a new window where acrobat checks whether there are new updates, but this window is blurred. You have to adjust your programm script so that acrobat reader can handle this situation. I think it has something to do with the windows scaling function. I have set the scaling as recommended on 150% on my laptop. If acrobat would be programmed correctly this shouldnt matter. Please fix this. As you can see in the attachment its badly blurred.

  20. I keep getting scans from teachers of things that i am supposed to read but they scan them with the book open and it is super obnoxious to read. I am trying to figure out how to split the pages in half but the split function seems to split by pages not literally split the PDF in half by OCR ing the page and seeing the middle where the crease is separate. Its weird that the adobe scan app for my phone is better than acrobat dc
