  2. Add more Page Display options

    With the new widescreen and big monitors sometimes a maximum of 2 pages side by side doesn´t take advantage of the screen size. Adding the option to view 3 pages or even 4 pages horizontally would greatly improve workflow.

  3. Issue with Adobe reader in Originate loans (DLO- Fiserv)

    Originate loans (OL) is a .Net based Digital loan origination solution suite
    The software uses active PDF documents for form generation on loan applications
    The editable PDF documents containing mapped PDF fields are uploaded into the software and these documents (forms) are populated with loan application data from the software.
    The filled forms are stored in DB in encoded varbinary format.
    The application UI presents links to each document on a loan app.
    On clicking this link, the document is opened in a PDF viewer. (varbinary stream is decoded and response is flushed by the app to IE PDF viewer) …

  4. Regarding the Adobe Sign document prep: it would be good to be able to "Go Back" to previous screens to edit, i.e. the email message

  7. Adobe's default line spacing is set to 1.20, which is uncommon in documents. Change default to Single spacing 1.0 atleast make it an option!

    Adobe's default line spacing is set to 1.20, which is uncommon in documents. Change default to Single spacing 1.0 or at least make it an option! This would be much more helpful instead of having to change it EVERY time I type a document which is so irritating and takes up a lot of valuable time. Please update the software so that the user can select the DEFAULT line spacing.

  8. BUG: Adobe AR DC 2020.009.20074 - Inconsistent Error Converting PDF to Excel

    Windows Adobe Acrobat Reader DC 2020.009.20074 inconsistently fails to convert our PDF data to a viable Excel file. When it fails instead of creating an All-Borders grid around the data, it will create a Picture of the border box and clump the data together in a jumble below.

    As we use macro's to manipulate the converted data, this obviously presents a problem to us.

    We have captured some files during the conversion process, and made a Word conversion of our data to check it - and what we found makes us wonder where this may be coming from.

  9. Allow options to show dimensions in feet and inches rather than just inches.

    I work with floor plans all the time and it bugs me that when all I need to do is a simple area measurement of feet and inches I have to settle for an area of just inches. I would like to have the option to at least pick how I want my measurements to appear on my document for more efficient measuring.

  10. show list of text higlighted

    Please, make a side tool to show list of text higlighted ( when we can read the text highlighted too ). it would be great if this list was ordered by pages and show page and chapter.

    This option would permit me study better documents with highlighted text and comments... it would be perfect.

  11. Don't copy formatting when copy/pasting into comments

    When copy/pasting text into comments it appears that formatting is kept. This means, for example, if you have dark mode on and you copy some text and paste it in a comment, the text will be white when in comment edit view. When the comment view view is active and in the main reader this extra formatting is suppressed (so the text is black).
    Because the formatting is suppressed for display and cannot be edited in the comment editor, it should not be kept in the comment editor at all.

  13. Possible Bug: with Libre Office Writer 6.3 and later created Forms dont work properly

    In a 2 page form the Textboxes and Options dont work when filling out with the current version of Acrobat Reader DC.
    The Problem only occurs with forms created with Libre Office 6.3 and later versions.
    The problem only occurs in Acrobat Reader.
    Edge and Chrome can open and fill the form properly.

    The issue is either a Reader or a Writer issue, therefore a possible Bug was reported there as well: https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=134813

    Attached is a not properly working form

  15. Enable scroll function on multiple tabs (open documents)

    When I open multiple documents in Arobat Reader DC, each document appears in its own tab. But if I open as much documents, as they don't fit in the bar, there appear two arrow buttons (left and right) for to move the bar and show wether the first, or the last document.

    But clicking on the arrows to be able to click on a tab of the document you want to show can be boring and become uncomfortable. It would be nice to on mouse over the tab bar, activate a scroll function, so you would be able to use…

  17. Prevent home page from displaying after closing PDF document

    The subject line says it all. Just another thing to close. Not the end of the world. Just an ongoing annoyance. Thanks.

  19. My Android Reader can invert the display (white text on dark BG). Can the Desktop app do the same, easy on the eyes?

    In mobile Reader App, I can change the display to Night Mode (inverted color, white text on dark BG). Can I do the same in desktop Acrobat DC?
    Please make it so.

  20. New Adobe Reader Function Freeze Panes ?

    Dear Adobe Team,

    could you add a function / command inside the view menu of the free adobe reader that works similar to the function 'freeze panes' in Microsoft Excel.
    That would allow to freeze headings/captions if you use the pdf reader for presentations of management reports etc.
    This could be useful in video conferences as well when you only can present a section of the full report.
    If this would work for picture, text and table objects would be nice.

    Unfortunately I have not seen such a function in a pdf reader before.

    I do not know if this…
