  1. Making removing of an open pdf-file more convenient

    Hi, I have a question about Acrobat Reader, wenn I have an open pdf-file and want to remove it form the folder on my computer, I get the message that removing is not possible because the file is opened. Would it be possible to add an option "Close and remove". This happens to me a lot during my working day and this solution would be very convenient for me.

  3. The font changes automatically by filling in the forms and using Polish diacritics

    Reporting a new bug:

    Steps to reproduce the issue:

    -> Open the document / form
    -> Use the "Fill & Sign" tool
    -> Enter any text using Polish diacritics, e.g. Ą, ą, Ć, ć, Ś, ś, Ż, ż, Ź, ź etc.

    Environment:

    -> OS: Windows 10 Pro 1909 (18363.719)
    -> Adobe Acrobar Reader DC Version: Polish (20.006.20034)

    Expected result:

    -> Forms should have a continuous homogeneous formatting. Unfortunately, even different fonts appear in one and the same field. Surprisingly, this problem does not concern German diacritics.

    Observed result:

    -> When filling out the forms, we should ensure that the text…

  5. Improve support for read-aloud

    I find read-aloud a a very useful feature as it allows use of an additional sense of hearing for absorb the content of a document. I suggest following features
    1. Configuration to ignore figures, listing and side bars
    2. Support for other languages. As of now my version of Acrobat reader can not read Hindi (Indian language).

    Thanks

  6. Read Out Loud Function - highlight words or phrases as it is reading

    The Read Out Loud function really needs to be updated so that it works better for individuals with reading difficulties, such as dyslexia. If they want this aspect of adobe to work well and actually benefit many of those who need it, it should highlight words and phrases as it is reading so that is easier to follow when reading, and know where in the text the reader is.

    This will make the product a lot more accessible to people with dyslexia, dyspraxia or the likes.

  7. Feature : reopen last session when launching Adobe Reader

    Allow to reopen all previously opened tabs at once, to restore the session from when we closed Adobe Reader, in a way similar to web navigators for instance

  8. Bad design: Stop forcing mouse pointer in Acrobat Reader

    Acrobat Reader DC changes the mouse pointer into its own scheme. Not talking about the specific tools, just the standard mouse when hovering over the Acrobat window.
    I don't have the best vision, so I have my Windows mouse pointer set to be very visible, or I will lose track of it on the screen. But when using Acrobat, I lose track of the pointer, because Acrobat INSISTS that I don't get to use my custom pointer, but rather use the virtually invisible Acrobat default.
    Why would Acrobat need to change the pointer? I get it for specific tools, like…

  9. Error when fax with "sharp mx-m266n fax"

    When faxing a 2 page pdf.
    When "Print" > select printer "sharp mx-m266n fax", it shows correct at abode preview. But at the preview of the fax driver, both page shows the content of page 1. And the receiver of the fax receives 2 copies of page1.

    Tested normal on Chrome and PDF Architect 7. However, also failed on some other PDF readers.

    Please advise.

  10. ctrl + del and ctrl + backspace on fillable forms do the same thing

    When filling in boxes on a pdf, ctrl+del and ctrl+backspace do the same thing. Ctrl+backspace should delete the previous word, but it deletes the next word instead. In other places, ctrl+backspace functions properly.

  12. Allow the option to add today's date with Fill & Sign.

    I frequently have to sign timesheets that have been scanned on to email. (i.e Flat form without autofull fields) Adding my signature is easy, but I have to type the date out as text. Having an extra button that allows the date to be added, without having to type it would be fantastic.

  13. Preview Pane speed

    Under a Windows 10 environment, when navigating a folder with the Preview Pane enabled, the time for the preview pane to populate is greatly increased. Under Windows 7, the preview pane was immediate and crisp. Windows 10, however, the preview pane takes (literally) over a full second to populate, during which time you also cannot click or down arrow to the next file until it displays. I've duplicated this issue on multiple PC's. The thumbnails show immediately, but the preview pane seems to have to actually load each file--every time. Even bouncing back and forth between two files takes over…

  14. Acrobat Reader DC incorrectly changes ∊ (unicode U+220A) to ε (U+03B5) when copied from a PDF File

    Hi Adobe,

    On Microsoft Windows 10, Acrobat Reader DC 2020.006.20034 incorrectly changes ∊ (unicode U+220A) to ε (U+03B5) when copied from a PDF File and pasted into another program.

    I get this:
    'THIS NOUN' ε 'THAT WORD'

    But, the expected result is:

    'THIS NOUN' ∊ 'THAT WORD'

    Thanks

  15. Fix Issue: Protected Mode prevents 3D PDF rendering hardware acceleration with NVidia graphics

    If using a PC with NVidia graphic cards, hardware acceleration is automatically deactivated if protected mode on startup is active. This slows down 3D PDFs significantly.

    Deactivating Protected Mode on Startup allows for hardware acceleration again.

  16. OCSP uses HTTPS even when OCSP URL specifies HTTP

    Recently we have noticed certificate revocation checking failures with the latest version of Acrobat Reader DC.

    In the Department of Defense, the OCSP URLs in the DOD PKI are "http://ocsp.disa.mil". These servers work. But they do not respond on the SSL-enabled port (https). But when we try to verify signatures with Acrobat DC, we get connection failures. Network tracing has revealed that even though the URLs in the certificate specify http, Adobe Reader is trying to connect to the https port, and this gets timeouts.

    Environment: MacOS X
    Steps to reproduce: Get a certificate that has an OCSP URL…

  17. Incorrect DDEEXEC value for Adobe Reader DC 2020.006.20034

    The DDEEXEC value is not being updated after the Adobe Reader DC update to version 2020.006.2034.

    The value remained at AcroViewR19 and needs to be AcroViewR20

  18. share multiple pdf in documentcloud.adobe.com or Adobe Reader DC

    I need for the service you have provided me for many years to be fixed immediately. I need to be able to send multiple pdf files and pictures at the same time in one link. Please email me as soon as this feature is available again. In the meantime I will be looking at other software providers to fill my needs.

    Sincerely,
    Susan Hatfield

  20. Create a window-in-window which will hold the next image in pdf.

    I want to create a window-in-window which will hold the next image in pdf. This way, if a reader is reading a book or a journal with diagrams, he/she will not have to switch pages just to see the diagram.
