  1. The search functionality of Adobe reader behaves weirdly. Attaching a small sample for reference.

    Open the attached pdf
    Search for HELLOWORLD
    Although there are 7 occurrences of the text of page, but on pressing enter for searching all occurrences it only highlights 4.
    Somehow, it is clubbing some occurrences under one

  2. You've provided toolbars at the top since the pdf reader existed. Now they are on the side and we cannot move them in this, the era of customization. Who thought this was a good idea?

  3. The "new" Acrobat Reader freezes a vertical tool bar in the upper left region. This is an annoying pain in the neck What a bad idea. I had to go back to the "old". Please allow the user to put this tool bar wherever they want.

  4. [Shift + mouse wheel down/up] should scroll pages faster than regular. Add adjustment slider for selecting faster speed in settings.

    Also, [CTRL + shift + mouse wheel down/up] should zoom in and out faster.

    This should needs to be added to all applications.

  5. Scrolling a document should as smooth as scrolling a webpage in any browser on Windows. Or should at least work as the Mac counterpart

  6. When in "Zoom to Page Level" view the Page Down and Page Up must go exactly one page. Currently in Adobe Reader 2023.001.20143 it is roughly 97% of page height. It was good in Adobe Reader XI.

  8. hide the "all tools" toolbar by default. this toolbar is only needed sometimes. this feature is enabled for the exception instead of the rule. since it takes up one-third of the display window and is on the left, it is distracting. when it was on the right, it wasn't as distracting. when viewing many pdfs over the course of the day, having to give up one third of the screen to a useless toolbar is frustrating.

  9. Recently was editing a document in the "new" adobe reader and was incredibly frustrated that I couldn't find basic buttons like "undo" or "scroll view" or whatever I need to select some text and delete the highlighting. VERY frustrating.

  10. Sometimes after 2021, the 2nd row of toolbars were removed and seemingly replaced by QuickTools. However QuickTools, albeit it's name, is less proficient than having the second row of tools available, in sight, and ready to be clicked.

    Specifically, all I'm asking for is to bring back what was taken away just so that its inclusion can be set by the user. Personally, I'm on the side of a person who uses Adobe Acrobat Pro to edit documents and find that for the number of tools I use often, they're not as quickly accessible when having to click on a…

  11. The tools pane is large and must be closed every time I open Adobe. Please provide an option to close the tools pane so it is remembered by default

  12. In german version of Acrobat Reader, Version 2023.001.20143, but also in many earlier version, when opening the recent file dialog with "File -> Show all recent files" (in German: "Datei -> Alle zuletzt verwendeten Dateien anzeigen...") and selecting the check buttons of 2 or more files, a small sub-dialog opens on the right (as shown in the attached image). It says there "Offen" for "Open", but this is the imperative form of the verb, which must be "Öffnen" in German.

  13. Open two pdf files.
    While viewing the second pdf file, click on Window->New Window to request the second pdf be opened in it's own separate window.
    Now viewing the second, separate window causes both Acrobat Reader windows to crash and the app closes off. version shown in the image saved
    This used to work without any issues in previous versions of AR, being able to see different pdfs in separate windows.

  14. Teilweise werden Din A4-Dokumente nicht mit den richtigen Dimensionen (zu groß) vom Reader definiert und lassen sich deshalb von einem drucker mit Din A4-Papier nicht drucken. Abhilfe (bei mir) ist nutzung eines anderen Readers, der diesen Bug nicht hat.
    Es wäre fein, wenn Adobe-Reader die Maasse eines DinA4-Dokumentes kennen würde oder wenn diese zumindest munuell korrekt im reader eingegeben und gespeichert werden könnten.

  15. When cropping a pdf in Adobe Acrobat Pro you can hover over the "crop" option and a yellow window appears. There it says "Buschneiden" which is not correct. Maybe you wanted to say "Beschneiden" or "Zuschneiden", which would both be correct. Just wanted to point it out! Thanks :)

  17. PDFs are used often as presentations in place of PowerPoints, however there is no presenter view. Presenters have to awkwardly drag the window to an extended display or mirror their display to the projector. This affects 10's of thousands of presenters annually (at least).

    Solution give us a presenter view. Or at least give us the option to display on secondary display by default (current display options don't work).

  18. Now all of the sudden, every time I open a PDF, on the top left there is a small box that says "Properties" and underneath, "No current selection."

  19. Version 2023.001.20064 64-bit Windows 10.

    Copying text from a document that's opened in protected mode causes an error box to appear with "Bad parameter". The OK button on the box needs to be clicked to make the box go away. The copied text still appears on the Windows clipboard as expected.

    I found a post on the forums describing this bug dating from 2018 - that's five years ago: https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-reader-discussions/acrobat-reader-dc-quot-bad-parameter-quot-when-trying-to-copy-text/td-p/10136457

  20. Environment
    Windows10 or 11 (Japanese)

    The "type" of PDF file in the popup that appears when the cursor is moved over the file in Explorer is missing the "Acroba書類" with a "t". This is very weird and needs to be fixed.

    Steps to reproduce the issue

    1. save the PDF file in Explorer or on the desktop
    2. Move the mouse pointer over the PDF file icon.
    3. A pop-up window opens and shows various information, but the "Type" item is "Acroba書類".

    Expected result
    AcrobatReader" is displayed as "Acrobat書類" as well as Acrobat Pro.

    Observed result
    On a PC with only Acrobat Reader…
