  1. When Adobe Reader auto-updates, customized icons are reset to default. In my specific case, the "Previous view", "Next view", and "Fit to width" buttons disappear with irritating frequency.

    I see no reason why this behaviour would be intentional, so it must be a bug.

  2. With the new widescreen and big monitors sometimes a maximum of 2 pages side by side doesn´t take advantage of the screen size. Adding the option to view 3 pages or even 4 pages horizontally would greatly improve workflow.

  3. Originate loans (OL) is a .Net based Digital loan origination solution suite
    The software uses active PDF documents for form generation on loan applications
    The editable PDF documents containing mapped PDF fields are uploaded into the software and these documents (forms) are populated with loan application data from the software.
    The filled forms are stored in DB in encoded varbinary format.
    The application UI presents links to each document on a loan app.
    On clicking this link, the document is opened in a PDF viewer. (varbinary stream is decoded and response is flushed by the app to IE PDF viewer)…

  6. Adobe's default line spacing is set to 1.20, which is uncommon in documents. Change default to Single spacing 1.0 or at least make it an option! This would be much more helpful instead of having to change it EVERY time I type a document which is so irritating and takes up a lot of valuable time. Please update the software so that the user can select the DEFAULT line spacing.

  7. Windows Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 2020.009.20074 inconsistently fails to convert our PDF data to a viable Excel file. When it fails instead of creating an All-Borders grid around the data, it will create a Picture of the border box and clump the data together in a jumble below.

    As we use macro's to manipulate the converted data, this obviously presents a problem to us.

    We have captured some files during the conversion process, and made a Word conversion of our data to check it - and what we found makes us wonder where this may be coming from.

  8. I work with floor plans all the time and it bugs me that when all I need to do is a simple area measurement of feet and inches I have to settle for an area of just inches. I would like to have the option to at least pick how I want my measurements to appear on my document for more efficient measuring.

  9. When copy/pasting text into comments it appears that formatting is kept. This means, for example, if you have dark mode on and you copy some text and paste it in a comment, the text will be white when in comment edit view. When the comment view view is active and in the main reader this extra formatting is suppressed (so the text is black).
    Because the formatting is suppressed for display and cannot be edited in the comment editor, it should not be kept in the comment editor at all.

  11. In a 2 page form the Textboxes and Options dont work when filling out with the current version of Acrobat Reader DC.
    The Problem only occurs with forms created with Libre Office 6.3 and later versions.
    The problem only occurs in Acrobat Reader.
    Edge and Chrome can open and fill the form properly.

    The issue is either a Reader or a Writer issue, therefore a possible Bug was reported there as well: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=134813

    Attached is a not properly working form

  13. When I open multiple documents in Arobat Reader DC, each document appears in its own tab. But if I open as much documents, as they don't fit in the bar, there appear two arrow buttons (left and right) for to move the bar and show wether the first, or the last document.

    But clicking on the arrows to be able to click on a tab of the document you want to show can be boring and become uncomfortable. It would be nice to on mouse over the tab bar, activate a scroll function, so you would be able to use…

  14. Dear Adobe Team,

    could you add a function / command inside the view menu of the free adobe reader that works similar to the function 'freeze panes' in Microsoft Excel.
    That would allow to freeze headings/captions if you use the pdf reader for presentations of management reports etc.
    This could be useful in video conferences as well when you only can present a section of the full report.
    If this would work for picture, text and table objects would be nice.

    Unfortunately I have not seen such a function in a pdf reader before.

    I do not know if this…

  15. Environment: Win 10-64/Version 2004/OS Build 19041.330/Dell Inspiron 7000 Series.
    If Chrome extension option is selected, my install fails with Libcef.dll error (see entire error in attached image file). Both optional choices were also deselected.

    With all options deselected, the install runs correctly

    I have the same problem... page 2 prints on a new page even though the print request is for double sided print. From all accounts it seems to be a widespread problem when a document has an odd number of pages. I tried to print just page 1 and 2 of a three page document but it still printed pages 1 and 2 on separate pages! What a waste of paper. This issue seems to be ongoing for some years and I cannot understand why Adobe cannot fix it…

  19. No reaction when trying to open a .pdf file from a network share available under DFS with a previously running .pdf document locally.
    The problem with .pdf files not working properly in correlation with DFS is the Adobe Reader application bug.Bug exist from begin od 2018.Adobe products cannot cope with distributed file systems.The observed bug occurs in WIN SRV 2016 and 2019 systems, and unless it is explicitly stated anywhere that the reason is the change in the SMB authentication method, this is indicated by (logically) the AR logs.this is a link to a thread on this topic https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-reader/can-only-open-1-pdf-at-a-time-from-dfs-server/m-p/10889532?page=3#M62593 The…

  20. When trying to sign a document (with the latest version of DC) (system report below) it will fail and say "The operation failed because Adobe Acrobat encounter an unknown error." From my testing, this only happened when I tried to add a signature on the same page as another fill box. (like a check box or a box where text can be added.) a signature can be added on pages without these elements.
