  6. I have encountered a bug in Acrobat Reader DC that is related to encoding of ECDSA digital signatures. The signature is composed of two numbers. It seems that when the highest bit of those numbers is set it is not padded with zero to make sure that the number is treated as positive integer. Instead it is treated as a negative integer. Adobe itself treats those signatures as valid, but other software refuses to accept them. Our nationwide eID uses ECC, so this bug impacts a large number of users. I can provide test file with valid and invalid signatures…

    1. Brief description: Translation bug.

    2. Steps to reproduce:

      On a Portuguese language installation:

      i. Create an appearance for a certificate-based signature, as described on the link bellow:

      https://helpx.adobe.com/br/acrobat/using/certificate-based-signatures.html?mv=product#create_the_appearance_of_a_certificate_based_signature

      ii. Make sure to include the date in the signature text.

    3. Environment: Windows 10, Acrobat Reader DC - version 20.9.20067.384717 (Portugues)

    4. Expected result: Signature appearance should contain the text "Data" (The correct Portuguese translation for "Date"), followed by the date.

    5. Observed result: Signature appearance contains the text "Dados". See attached screenshot.

  7. 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…

  9. 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.

  11. In todays world, many browsers now have built-in PDF viewers to help deal with end of browser plugins and the rise of HTML 5 and mobile apps. Can you please consider eliminating browser plugin for Adobe Reader DC and make Adobe Reader a Mac and Windows App store app as quickly as possible to modernize pdf experience and introduce adobe Scan app which uploads scanned document from iPhone directly to mac or windows PC as well.

    As many websites are going HTML 5 and browser plugin support is being reduced, we need to see adobe acrobat reader app converted from…

  12. As of the latest update (2020.009.20065), when a user clicks on the submit button in a form it asks for their login credentials and after they receive an error. In prior versions of Reader DC, a user would put in their credentials and the form would be submitted. Now, after update 20065, the user puts in their credentials they get the following error message. "An error occurred during the submit process. Authorization is required for this network service" and the form is not submitted.

  13. 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…

  15. 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…

  17. 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.

  18. After latest update to Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, the option to print on both sides disappeared. Had to edit the registry to prevent automatic updates (how are naive users supposed to cope?).
