  2. Pdf should have time bound password facility for data privacy and security

    Hello,

    This is Ankit. I am working as a project manager - mechanical design for complete project proposal of design and development of machines.

    For our project requirements, we need to send our design and manufacturing drawings to different vendors/ manufacturers.

    Id in pdf we can develop such security facility, such that the PDFs that we send to any vendor/manufacturers, those PDFs must have password protected and the password must…

  7. Add a View/View Rotate 180 Degrees button.

  9. Reader DC embedded in IE (Win10) cannot launch print dialog. (2004 issue)

    For all of the machines in my Win 10 2004 test group, the Reader plugin for IE (AcroPDF64.dll) has lost the ability to start the print dialog, either from the handy button in the border UI, the drop down menu, or Ctrl+P. In all cases nothing happens. There are a variety of versions on the affected machines but most of them are quite current (20.9.20063 and ...65). The problem is restricted to IE (11 I have no other versions to check) and the new windows 10 2004 feature build.
    If you're interested in any other data I can provide on…

  11. A dictionary (online/offline) feature

    I read a lot of research articles. And, I am pretty sure we all know how academic jargon can be exacerbated sometimes. Having an offline/online dictionary would be a great deal. Imagine if I can just double click/tap on a word and then the definition pops up! It can be a pain to switch from the Reader to a Browser at times for a definition.

  13. BUG: Can no longer close Reader window with COMMAND-W

    Until recently, you could close the Adobe Reader window (the one showing Recent, Starred, Scans, etc down the left side) with COMMAND-W. While you can still use COMMAND-W to close a PDF file, inexplicably this function no longer works with the Adobe Reader window. In workflow this is ridiculously annoying; I hit COMMAND-W to close my PDF window but then I have to go hunting for the CLOSE button to click on for the Adobe Reader window. At least, I am assuming this is a bug; I can't imagine someone purposefully enabling this highly obnoxious and laborious "feature" into the…

  14. Fix read mode to NOT go to full screen mode to have only the document content visible in a window. You should have separate full screen mode

    I need to read a PDF while using others apps at the SAME TIME; Reading the documentation of the other program from a PDF file.

    I don't need toolbars. I dont' need status bars. I don't need menu bars.

    I can press ctrl-f If I want to search for something, I can press ctrl-p if I want to print the document. I don't need a buttons or search bars for those to be constantly visible.

    If I need to use ANY other functionality, I can right-click and all that functionality could be put into that right-click menu.

    I ONLY WANT…

  15. File paths containing spaces are not remembered by Save As in Reader

    I save certain PDF files to my Windows (10) Start Menu, usually in folders which, like "Start Menu", contain at least one space in their name.

    The list of folders to which previous files have been saved apparently refuses to remember such folders, forcing me to copy-and-paste the applicable name /every/ time I want to save something there.

    A folder name that does not contain any spaces, is remembered as usual.

  16. Allow the clicking of the mouse wheel to enable scrolling via the mouse.

    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.

  17. F2 should not open web help

    The key to open help is F1. It should not also be F2. I was using F2 for Discord/Push-to-talk, and now Acrobat Reader DC opens a web page every time.

    Please restore the behaviour of the previous version of Acrobat Reader DC.

  18. Make Acrobat Reader to reopen all documents previously opened before

    Because I have to work many times on a multitude of opened pdf files that I need to keep open for days in a row, I think a feature to restore previous session of opened documents (just like Firefox or Google Chrome) would be really helpful!

    Hi,

    Thanks for reaching out to us for you conerns.

    We already have it implemented in Reader.
    Do “File” → “Reopen PDFs from last session.” And that should restore all the pdfs that were present in you last session at the time of Quiting the application.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks
    Ayush Jain

  19. Copy html into password box

    Please allow the ability to copy and paste html into the password box for a PDF document.

    Most users copy and paste the password from an email, which will be in html format.

    But the password box only accepts plain text so you can't copy and paste it from an email. You have to paste it first into a text file, and then copy and paste it from there which is just more time consuming than necessary.

  20. hide Standard DC features

    Can you please hide the Acrobat Standard features, or allow the user to hide them.

    I appreciate you want to encourage users to purchase the license for Standard DC, but it is mis-leading showing the features on the right side of Reader DC if you can't even use them.

    Having the option to hide these features from Reader DC would be good
