  1. Please remove the "+ Create" button from the taskbar of Adobe Reader. It is too easy to incorrectly click on this button and annoyingly then takes time for the program to generate a blank page.

  2. New layout of Adobe Reader is utterly counterproductive, and makes everyday use of Adobe Reader much slower and confusing.
    I, as well as many other users I know, am using Bookmarks and Pages in at least 95% of times when I use Reader. Therefore, they should be placed on the left, where they are expected to be (it is simply a standard for similar "master-detail" situations).
    Also, primary tools, like paging, zoom-in and -out, are placed in a bottom-right corner, just like they were hiding?! But these are the basic tools, and they must be placed centrally, either on top…

  3. Have experienced an issue where when you click on the Properties button on the Print window, the Properties window is unclickable. This was raised by one of our users who had experienced this on multiple computers we had provided them over the years.

    Initially thought it was a printer driver issue, but I was able to replicate this on multiple different printer brands with different drivers (including the latest). Mainly tested with Konica and HP printers. This could be reproduced on different computers running Windows 10.

    To replicate, you have to click on the Properties a number of times and…

  4. an option to export pdf in txt files to be used in AI, for asking and for summarizing.
    When exporting ask the maximum number of tokens(words) per each file, because there is a maximum number of words in each file when uploading to ai, so adobe exports in several files so you can upload in services like keymate.ai, you could check keymate.ai, to understand clearly the requiriments.
    exporting a clean file whenever possible, without page number, headers, etc.

  5. There is a malfunction with the read out loud feature. It stops reading if it reached hyperlinked text or italics. In the attached doc, you can confirm that the read out loud feature will stop both on the second and third paragraphs when it reaches the hyperlinked text, as well as when the word DEI is italicized and bolded. It either stops or skips to the next page. This needs to be fixed and does not meet accessibility standards.

  6. I want to simply click then release the mouse wheel and then be able to scroll up and down, say, a 60 page document at the exact speed I wish, stopping and starting as I wish, simply by then moving the mouse on the mat up and down, no further button pressing required, no further clicking required. This is a standard, indispensably brilliant functionality I use on every single web page I visit, Word document or Email I read, it is only Adobe reader which does not have this basic mouse functionality, other PDF readers all have it as well,…

  7. To reproduce the issue:
    * Open any PDF;
    * Choose "Print" and select as printer "Microsoft Print to PDF";
    * Press the "Print" button;
    * Now Windows asks where to save the PDF file (Save Printoutput as);
    * Now press Cancel to cancel this window (for instance because this Microsoft Print to PDF was still active from a previous print, and now you wanted to print to a real device instead);
    * You get a message that the document couldn't get printed. Press "Close";
    * Now you get a message that an error occured during printing of the document. Press…

  9. Add Option to remove tool panes by default at startup. They are far to big and take up ridiculous amount of space,As well as having to constantly minimize them.
    This is a MAJOR problem in Landscape Mode

  11. All Tools automatically opens when a pdf is opened. Meaning to read it in full view you have to close it every time. This is extremely annoying and makes me not want to use pdfs as much. There should be a setting to have it closed by default. And the "Remember current state of Tools Pane" has no effect, seems to be a bug.

  12. Dear Adobe,

    I have been a user of Adobe Acrobat for many years. I have used the application to read, create, and edit PDF documents on my personal computer and mobile device.

    Overall, I am satisfied with the application, but I have an important complaint that I would like to bring to your attention.

    There is no option to set the reading mode as default in Adobe Acrobat. This means that every time I open a new PDF document, I have to manually disable the tools and options that I do not need.

    This situation is very frustrating, as it…

  13. Effectively, there are now 4 tool bars in Adobe Reader - one on each side of the document screen and two on top. While the loss of document space is not significant in general consider how even those minor losses affect users on laptops (varying screen sizes) and tablets. We have no option to dock and undock the floating tool bar with the rest of the tool icons on the second ribbon on the top. We also can't hide nor close the options list on the right-hand side of the screen although all these options are also available under editing…

  14. After the latest updates, Adobe Reader won't allow me to quickly scroll through pages using the arrows after zooming in/out with the shortcut ("ctrl" + "+" or "ctrl" + "-"). I must wait until the "zoom panel" is hidden before scrolling with the arrows once again. That makes me wait to long to scroll the page without using the mouse. So I please ask you to revert that. Please, make the focus stay on the page, not on the "zoom panel", after zooming in/out using shortcuts.

  15. There should be an option to open files/adobe with Tools and Bookmarks NOT enabled. It is very annoying and inefficient to close those 2 windows every time i open Adobe to read a PDF. See pic of how files open by default, not very useful to see the document contents with a smaller window/screen without closing the undesired left/right bars.

  16. I need to send out multiple documents at one go for signature. But today I heard that this feature had been disabled for all Adobe sign users on the latest version.

    I think this is a good, convenient, and hassle-free feature that must be added in.
    It really saves us a lot of effort.

    Please have this feature back on as soon as possible.

  17. As a writer, I like Adobe Acrobat very much. It allows me to digitally display magazine articles as accurately as in print.
    But the problem for me, and other writers I would guess, is in displaying articles in an online portfolio. While I can set the "view" as 2-page continuous in Acrobat, once my PDF is posted on a webpage in PDF viewer, it goes back to 1-page view. I contacted Adobe support, and was told there is no option to make it a 2-page view.

    When these articles are first published in print, many times a feature article will…

  20. Helping to organize favorites, some type of grouping, would be very useful.

    Folders would be a neutral way, stacks are fine as well. Any creative solution which helps to group different PDFs to keep them organized on quickly accessible would help.
