  1. When I launch READER, which is FREE, I get a Login dialog box that CANT BE CLOSED. There is no Cancel, no Exit, no other button to click that lets me exit the dialog box. The box will not close upon OS closure (clicking the X). The only way to exit is to Force Quit Reader.

  3. Microsoft Access Cloud:

    For over twenty years, Microsoft Access Database has been one of the leading relational databases used by modern enterprises, a critical part of Office and Microsoft 365. It is a pioneer in low-code, no code database solution development. However, with the emergence of the cloud, Access customers tell us they need more hybrid solutions that keep the value and ease of use of Access with the value and flexibility of cloud-based storage and development platforms.

    One of the most requested capabilities Access users ask for is the ability…

  4. When I click on a line of text in a PDF the result is text and other graphical elements getting scrambled with weird coloured glitches. I provide two examples using two different PDFs. The issues goes away if I scroll down the document and then return on the same page.

  6. On December 16 2021 Acrobat DC was updated on my PC.
    I have the Dutch version of the application.
    After this update the rightclick contextmenu suddenly contains the letters 'w' and 'o' twice.
    Check the screenshot below.

  7. Steps to reproduce:
    1. Install Acrobat Reader 64bits on Windows
    2. Install any 3rdPargy Acrobat Reader plug-in, e.g. the "BasicPlugin" from Acrobat SDK samples
    3. Launch Acrobat Reader 64bits
    4. Acrobat Reader 64bits was launched, but after 3~4 seconds, Application crashed.

    Notes:
    * Only an issue on Windows
    * Only an issue on Acrobat Reader 64bits.
    * Not an issue for Acrobat Reader 32bits
    * Not an issue for Acrobat DC 64bits
    * This can be simply reproduced by using the "BasicPlugin" sample that comes with Acrobat SDK

    Please consider fixing the crash.

  8. The copy paste function doesn't work with words that contain letters with accents on my Mac running Big Sur. Letters with accents paste as a space. It doesn't matter where I paste the text. The result is the same. This is a real problem for people using languages with a lot of accents. I'm able to open the same PDF using Preview and copy/paste the same text and see all the letters.

    I opened another PDF that was created years ago with accented letters. The copy/paste worked in my browser and in Preview. I had the same problem when copying/pasting…

  9. Let me repeat honestly because I am exasperated by Adobe's incompetence:
    After decades, when Acrobat Reader starts, it still has not figured out how to reopen pdf files at the right page!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How do you justify this BIG problem after so many years of having created Adobe Reader?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi,

    Thanks for reaching out to us for your query.
    This feature is already available in Acrobat Reader. Here is how you can turn that on.

    1) Go to Edit → Preferences → “Documents” Tab
    2) Select the checkbox for “Restore last view settings when reopening documents”

    This preference will make sure that your Acrobat reader remembers the last view of the pdf when it was closed and reopened.

    Hope it helps ?

    Thanks
    Ayush Jain

  10. I use acrobat for work and use it mostly for map prints I have to add notes and add lines. So I use the connected line tools from the comment section to draw the lines from certain points on the map print but I don't really like it because it sometimes makes it hard to get to one point to the next when I have the map print zoomed in . I can't scroll to get to the next point when using the connected lines tool. It's frustrating, so I would like there to be a pen tool like in…

  11. Adobe should have a feature to assign different passwords to different PDF file in one go.

    Also a feature to send / share this multiple files to their individual recipient in one go.

  15. When an image copied from one PDF and pasted to another PDF, it always got pasted in place and with the same size. However, now what happens is: 1) the pasted image position is always in the centre of page. 2) the image is smaller in size, then when I scale it to be bigger, the quality is very pixelated.

    This issue never happened before. I've always used the same Acrobat.

    Please fix this ASAP!! It is very annoying. Thank you

  16. Olá 👋😃

    Eu gostaria de sugerir uma ferramenta: tradutor de idiomas. Ou dicionário de língua estrangeira.

    A ferramenta poderia estar dísponível também na opção ACESSIBILIDADES (assistente de leitura)

    Acho estranho essa ferramenta não existir no Adobe Reader, pois já existem ferramentas como tradutor de texto, leitura de voz, entre outras (utilizadas pelo google, por exemplo).

    Isso facilitaria a leitura de artigo, resumo e texto em seu idioma original.

    Abraço,

    Ketti Maria

  17. Dear leader, hello, I reported 17 stack exhaustion vulnerabilities to Adobe's security department through hackerone. This type of vulnerabilities have always been given cve numbers and thank you(e.g. CVE-2020-3753/CVE-2020-3756/CVE-2020-9611/CVE-2020-9702/CVE-2020-9703/CVE-2017-16419), but your security department notified me that these 17 bugs that I reported will not be given cve numbers and acknowledgements, I think it is unfair to me. And these 16 vulnerabilities did have an impact on your products, I also made contributions, I deserve the cve number and acknowledgements. Thanks.

  18. ... and I am not referring to the distinction between hand and select tool. I am referring to another problem:

    I have set my own cursor scheme for Windows (Lefty Scheme) in Windows system settings. Every application accepts that but Adobe Reader. Whenever using the reader the mouse changes from a white arrow pointing to the upper right corner (lefty scheme) to a black arrow pointing to the upper left corner.

    How can I change this? I want the Reader to use the Windows System setting.

    I am using Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit, Version 1709, OS Buils 16299.431 and…

  19. With the introduction of virtual desktops in Windows 10, some users such as myself have multiple projects going on simultaneously. The virtual desktop feature greatly aids compartmentalization in this aspect.

    Let us say I am working in a virtual desktop called vd3 for instance, and I do not currently have an instance of Acrobat running on vd3. Now I open a PDF file and there is already an instance of Acrobat running on a different virtual desktop, say vd1. Now, instead of opening a new instance of Acrobat in vd3, Windows forces a switch to vd1 and opens my PDF…

  20. When creating a new document, i.e. printing to Adobe or converting a document I'm getting the correct number of pages, however blank/grey pages. Can see older/existing documents.
