  1. 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!

  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. 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.

  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  15. BUG: Adobe AR DC 2020.009.20074 - Inconsistent Error Converting PDF to Excel

    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.

  16. Allow options to show dimensions in feet and inches rather than just inches.

    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.

  19. New Adobe Reader Function Freeze Panes ?

    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…

  20. Why is this still an issue?

    Jo commented · July 09, 2018 03:41 · Flag as inappropriate
    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…
