  1. As a result of COVID, we are now forced to have virtual tribunal hearings and present testimony in PDF via screen sharing.

    Witnesses often have to point out something in an exhibit - a sentence or paragraph or a point on a map and it is difficult for viewers to see the hand tool because it is too smaller to be easily visible and may not have sufficient contrast with document colors to stand out.

    At in-person hearings, it was possible for a witness to stand up a point with their hand to an item on the main display screen…

  4. Acorbat Reader DC displays pages with unsightly white borders, including down the middle of any matter spanning page spreads, such as photographs.

    Also, I would like to be able to choose a custom background color, and hide all the toolbars, buttons, tabs and whatnot.

  6. I have multiple pdf tabs that I have open and edit. It would be more efficient to be able to save them all at once instead of going through each tab and saving them individually.

  7. Acrobat Reader DC changes the mouse pointer into its own scheme. Not talking about the specific tools, just the standard mouse when hovering over the Acrobat window.
    I don't have the best vision, so I have my Windows mouse pointer set to be very visible, or I will lose track of it on the screen. But when using Acrobat, I lose track of the pointer, because Acrobat INSISTS that I don't get to use my custom pointer, but rather use the virtually invisible Acrobat default.
    Why would Acrobat need to change the pointer? I get it for specific tools, like…

  8. I’m still baffled that the default scrolling for pages in Adobe Reader has the reader smoothly scrolling down the page, bringing the text up to eye level (no one reads down a page any more unless it’s a physical book) only to have it jump to the top of the next page as soon as the bottom of the page is in view on the screen. This results in interrupted reading and endless and annoying backwards scrolling to get back to where the reader was. I know this can be changed in the settings, but why isn’t it the default?…

  10. I have the PDF view on my other monitor, not the laptops. When a dialog box comes up (search: no more instances) it ALWAYS goes to the laptop screen and is hidden. And of course it is model, so I need to find the stupid thing and press OK (another design friggen issue!)

    To do this, I have to go down to my task bar, on the PDF viewer icon, right click to show all windows, and then finally the model dialog box pops up, on the laptop screen, not where the other window is.

    PLEASE FIX!

  12. At the moment, endnotes in pdfs are hyperlinked to the endnote page, but there is no "round-trip" backlink from the endnote entry number back to the point of origin in text - as there is in epub documents.
    This would be a very useful feature!

  13. I've found in using Acrobat Reader DC with an account for Mac OS X that when you open the application and are prompted for a password, you cannot click the Quit option (among others) in the application menu in the toolbar nor can you click the red X button in the upper left of the main application. You can't even close out Reader by right clicking in the dock and selecting Quit, something about the authentication form completely blocks other interaction with the application. Neither can you click the X in the authentication form. It is active, which is very…

  14. I know that a lot of programs are switching towards a tab-based structure when opening several files at a time. But it sometimes is very handy to be able to open several PDFs in several windows. I know that this is possible by rightclicking the file etc., but I miss a setting that opens PDFs be default in a new window - and not in a new tab.

    Can there be some kind of "setting" that says:
    O - open PDFs in new tabs
    X - open PDFs in new windows

  15. With all the programs I have tested I can click my mouse wheel and enable scrolling by moving my mouse. With Adobe Reader when I click the mouse wheel a hand icon appears with four arrows. As long as I hold the mouse wheel down I can scroll the document. What I am asking for is that the program have the feature so that I can release the mouse wheel and be able to scroll. With other programs this works until I depress a button, move the mouse wheel, or click the mouse wheel which resets the mouse scroll.

  16. I have to work with PDFs a lot and I have to deal with them via browser. For the past years I haven't had any problems with using the browser PDF-viewer, but as of recently the option to do a quick google search in a new tab when highlighting text within a document and right-clicking on it is no longer available. There is 'copy', 'print', 'rotate', 'save as' but not the 'search the web for [highlighted text]' which was so very helpful and useful for me. Please, consider making it available again since I can hardly imagine how anyone would…

  20. Restore the simple, clean layout of Reader 11, at least as an option, for those of us simple needs. I want a simple document reader, not an editor. Thank you.
