  2. 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).

  3. 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."

  4. 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

  5. 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…

  6. Identical to the mobile app, please provide the Night mode. Existing accessibility option to replace colors is not the same. I see this has been asked for years. Such a simple feature, I'm a developer if you let me sign an NDA and work on this I'll do it for free. Why can't I use my Surface to read books at night like I do with my iPad?

  7. Set Page number for PDF thumbnail preview.

    Adobe PDF thumbnails in windows explorer preview the first page of a PDF. Can this be adapted so a particular page of the document is the thumbnail preview rather than page 1. Could this be done whilst creating the PDF? forexample in indesign when exporting the file.

  8. The function of the "Enable Scrolling" button is exactly parallel to the function of the "Two Page Scrolling" menu option, so why not call it "Single Page Scrolling"?

    I always assumed that "Enable Scrolling" changes whichever view you are in (single or two-page) to scrolling in that same view (whereas "Two Page Scrolling" changes the view and toggles scrolling at the same time.) But "Enable Scrolling" does change the view to single-page as it toggles scrolling on. So I don't have to click "Single Page View" and then click "Enable Scrolling" when the "Enable Scrolling" button does both. Labeling it…

  9. しおりで現在のページを確認したい時に、「現在のしおりを展開」でも良いのですが、しおりの色がはっきり変わるとさらに良いです。
    現状、しおりの色が薄いグレー→ちょっとだけ濃いグレーに変わって、現在のページ位置を示してくれているようですが、非常にわかりにくいです。
    テレワークが増えて大量のPDFを扱う機会が増えたため、分かりやすい色に変わってくれると、作業効率が大幅にupすると思います!

  11. To reproduce: Open any large document (e.g. 10 page document). Try to resize the window.

    Version: 22.3.20282.0 (and every other version I've ever tried)

    OS: Windows 10

    Expected result: Window resizes smoothly

    Observed result: Window size updates about once per second (giving a slow stutter effect) and lags behind the mouse.

  12. Steps to reproduce:

    1. Open any PDF document in the Acrobat Reader DC on Windows (my version 2021.001.20138)

    2. Change the following (I do it for every single document, that should be the default):
      View -> Page Display -> Single Page View
      View -> Zoom -> Zoom to Page Level
      View -> Read Mode
      View -> Show/Hide -> Menu Bar

    3. Resize the window so that the page takes up precisely 100% of the window area, there are no blank margins around the page.

    4. Close the window

    5. Open the same document again

    Expected behaviour:
    Window size should be remembered. When you apply all…

  14. After the update from version 22.002.20191 to version 22.003.20258, we've detected an issue with the new Microsoft Purview Information Protection plug-in.

    It can happen, that Adobe Acrobat Reader DC crashes, if a MIP protected PDF file shall be opened. In this case the opening process hangs and Reader DC doesn't react any longer and you have to terminate the app.

    This happens, because the cached account information for MIP are obviously unusable (e.g. corrupt or invalid). The only solution currently is, to clear the cache via the "Clear remembered account information" button.

    But many standard users aren't aware of this…

  15. Desktop as a Service (DaaS) is a virtual desktop architecture that runs in the cloud and gives customers controlled desktops. In its most basic form, a Virtual Desktop Infrastructure's back-end infrastructure is hosted by a third party company (VDI). On servers housed in the data centre of the cloud service provider, virtual desktops are built and run. Since the complete infrastructure is housed in the cloud, the service provider really takes care of all required support, including but not limited to storage and network-related issues.

    Through their cloud-based network, the Desktop as a Service or DaaS provider in this case…

  16. Telecommuting is much of the time something worth being thankful for and one thing you can do inside the long haul, not simply in that frame of mind of the Covid calamity. Yet, you've in any case gotten to hold up great network protection propensities and keep up with your pc and information secure from untouchables. Adhere to the guidelines of your IT bunch and pose inquiries on the off chance that you feel a little skeptical. That implies utilizing all security processes like secure logins, substantial tokens, and getting your PC assuming you leave it unattended. Get to be…

  19. Adobe reader has been around for a long time, and lots of people have commented on public fora that its compatibility with Dragon NaturallySpeaking is extremely poor. This software is used by vast numbers of people with disabilities worldwide to improve their access to digital technology, and you really should make an effort to make your software compatible with it.

  20. (SYSTEM AND SPECS: Macbook Air M1 (2020), Apple M1, macOS Monterey 12.5, Acrobat Reader DC 2021.001.20169)

    When scrolling whilst in Fill & Sign mode the document screen seems to "glitch" or "tear" periodically when scrolling vertically through a document that is being filled.

    Attached is a screenshot and a video showing this behaviour.
