  1. Fix Issue: Protected Mode prevents 3D PDF rendering hardware acceleration with NVidia graphics

    If using a PC with NVidia graphic cards, hardware acceleration is automatically deactivated if protected mode on startup is active. This slows down 3D PDFs significantly.

    Deactivating Protected Mode on Startup allows for hardware acceleration again.

  2. Acrobat Reader unable to access files via junction reparse points

    Acrobat Reader is unable to correctly interpret some mountpoint reparse points (junctions). In practical terms: Acrobat Reader is unable to access PDF files from file systems mounted as directories and this is the root cause of the problem.

    Junctions are special symbolic links that are used in many scenarios; an important one is when a file system is mounted as a directory rather than a regular drive. Junctions contain 2 paths: a “substitute” path which must be a path in the NTOS namespace (not a Win32 path) and a “print” path, which is to be used for display to…

  3. Build in an EPUB Reader and Allow for EPUB Embedding

    The Reader app (all platforms) should be more generalized to allow "reading" of both EPUB or PDF documents.

    Similarly, we should be able to embed an EPUB into a PDF file. (PDF has a robust method that allows it to embed other file formats.)

    Then, we should have a switch in Reader that would let a user to switch from PDF to reflowable EPUB and back again.

    While I understand that Adobe is investing heavily in Liquid Mode, this EPUB method would be far more reliable for people who need to control the design of both static and reflowable modes.

  4. Fix Multi-PDF issue from Win2019 DFS share to Win10 clients..... please.

    The DFS bug has shown it's head again. Win 2019 servers offering DFS fileshares to Win10 clients will no longer allow multiple PDFs to be opened from the OS interface, because of Protected Mode.

    Any other combination works fine (non-Win2019, non-Win10, non-DFS shares, disable Protected Mode).

    Now that the vastly popular Win 2008r2 is out of support, many more organizations are upgrading to Win 2019. Disabling Protected Mode via registry GPO is a poor workaround.

    Please fix!

  5. Allow for selective sync on libraries

    The request is to allow for selective sync on libraries because the creative cloud is taking up too much space and storage on my computer and a lot of my libraries do not need direct access at this time.

  6. Stop seizing control of default apps on my computer.

    I have a legal copy of Acrobat Pro X (Creative Suite) that I love (I use it over Creative Cloud supplied by my employer). PROBLEM: I cannot have Reader DC (needed for shared forms sent to me occasionally) installed at the same time as it always acts as default app even though the Windows 10 default app still lists Acrobat Pro. This is as infuriating as when Edge automatically changes this every time there is a Windows update. I already own Finereader 15 that does everything Acrobat does and more and does not require a monthly subscription. You lost a…

  8. Read Out Loud Function - highlight words or phrases as it is reading

    The Read Out Loud function really needs to be updated so that it works better for individuals with reading difficulties, such as dyslexia. If they want this aspect of adobe to work well and actually benefit many of those who need it, it should highlight words and phrases as it is reading so that is easier to follow when reading, and know where in the text the reader is.

    This will make the product a lot more accessible to people with dyslexia, dyspraxia or the likes.

  9. Read Mode default

    I was asked to create a document in such a way that when it gets passed along it opens in Read Mode instead of with the comment, fill &sign and more tools panel open. Apparently that can't be done.

  11. An error occurs when printing with the command ( Acrobat Reader DC ver.20.012.20041 ).

    Since then, the following error message appears when printing with the command.

    Adobe Acrobat Reader DC has stopped working
    The program did not work properly due to a problem.

    The program will close and Windows will notify you if there is a solution

    Printing is done just by issuing a message.

    The command I am using is:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroRd32.exe" /n /p /h "<PDF file path>"

    The execution environment is as follows.

  12. Enable access to files in long folder paths (longer than 255 characters)

    AR is unable to open files where the file and folder path exceeds 255 characters. To accommodate this we have had to replace it with a competitor's software.

  13. Move Adobe Reader to App store model

    In todays world, many browsers now have built-in PDF viewers to help deal with end of browser plugins and the rise of HTML 5 and mobile apps. Can you please consider eliminating browser plugin for Adobe Reader DC and make Adobe Reader a Mac and Windows App store app as quickly as possible to modernize pdf experience and introduce adobe Scan app which uploads scanned document from iPhone directly to mac or windows PC as well.

    As many websites are going HTML 5 and browser plugin support is being reduced, we need to see adobe acrobat reader app converted from…

  14. Bug: Adobe Reader "save" prompts "save-as"

    I am having an issue when saving documents in Adobe Reader, when I hit "save" it prompts a "save-as" box every time which required me to navigate to the document to save it. This is happening for me on windows 10. I've uninstalled and re-installed the program and am getting the same issue. Thanks
