  1. Bug: Reader Install Win10: If Chrome extension option is selected install fails

    Environment: Win 10-64/Version 2004/OS Build 19041.330/Dell Inspiron 7000 Series.
    If Chrome extension option is selected, my install fails with Libcef.dll error (see entire error in attached image file). Both optional choices were also deselected.

    With all options deselected, the install runs correctly
    The downloaded filename is readerdcenxacrainstall

  2. Why is this still an issue?

    Jo commented · July 09, 2018 03:41 · Flag as inappropriate
    I have the same problem... page 2 prints on a new page even though the print request is for double sided print. From all accounts it seems to be a widespread problem when a document has an odd number of pages. I tried to print just page 1 and 2 of a three page document but it still printed pages 1 and 2 on separate pages! What a waste of paper. This issue seems to be ongoing for some years and I cannot understand why Adobe cannot fix it…

  3. share

    Option to disable "Share" and "Sign in" buttons.

    "Share" is an obvious distraction when trying to read PDFs, since it's a bright blue call-to-action.

  5. I dunno, make it function ? That would help Me.

    after 1.25 hours of wasted time chasing my tail I copied and pasted into Word, then printed, faxed,copied and snail mailed the document in 12 minutes, 1.10 hours faster than Adobe could not email the document to my own email address.

  6. Enable access to files in long folder paths (longer than 255 characters)

    AR is unable to open files where the file and folder path exceeds 255 characters. To accommodate this we have had to replace it with a competitor's software.

  7. FIX Problem security with Adobe Reader WIN10

    No reaction when trying to open a .pdf file from a network share available under DFS with a previously running .pdf document locally.
    The problem with .pdf files not working properly in correlation with DFS is the Adobe Reader application bug.Bug exist from begin od 2018.Adobe products cannot cope with distributed file systems.The observed bug occurs in WIN SRV 2016 and 2019 systems, and unless it is explicitly stated anywhere that the reason is the change in the SMB authentication method, this is indicated by (logically) the AR logs.this is a link to a thread on this topic https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-reader/can-only-open-1-pdf-at-a-time-from-dfs-server/m-p/10889532?page=3#M62593 The…

  8. Fill and sign fails, giving " an unexpected error"

    When trying to sign a document (with the latest version of DC) (system report below) it will fail and say "The operation failed because Adobe Acrobat encounter an unknown error." From my testing, this only happened when I tried to add a signature on the same page as another fill box. (like a check box or a box where text can be added.) a signature can be added on pages without these elements.

  10. Horizontal AND Vertical resizing of the text fill

    When adding multiple lines of text, there is an ability to adjust the horizontal spacing (blue circle / double arrows).

    Can you please add the ability to adjust VERTICAL spacing?

  12. Improve UI Customization - Make the comments toolbar stay open automatically no matter what

    In my case, I'm perfectly happy with the way Adobe chose to implement this (I haven't actually tried the upgrade yet - I'm just responding to other comments here). In addition to documents that come to me with comments I need to see, I open plenty of random PDFs that have no comments, and in those cases I wouldn't want the pane to take up space.

    But I suppose if Adobe wants to make everyone happy, in a future upgrade they could expand the setting to be a three-item radio selection instead of a checkbox:
     Show Comments Pane upon opening…

  15. DocumentCloud.Abobe.com Does Not Work In Chrome

    Adobe is using old authentication where Chrome does not allow for pasting/loading sharable PDF links to Chrome -- Firefox still allows this old authentication, so I am only able to edit sharable PDF links in Firefox. Error messages are below:

    A cookie associated with a cross-site resource at http://assets.adobedtm.com/ was set without the SameSite attribute. A future release of Chrome will only deliver cookies with cross-site requests if they are set with SameSite=None and Secure.

  16. 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.

    Because of data security, thiis drawings we are providing in hard copies instead of soft copies. Ad there is a chance of design copy in case of soft copy provision.

    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…

  17. Make it so it can be opened by other people, or make it free to convert into a USABLE format.

    I am trying to use this for my Eagle Project, but that was a bad idea, since no one else can open the files and I can't convert them without spending money on a very basic thing. Now I've got time invested which I would lose if I swapped to another, better product. I understand your business model is to get people with annoying free stuff so they buy the good ones, but hot dang is this especially bad.
