  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. Error printing form or second page blank

    Filled PDF form cannot be printed on most systems, on some systems the second page prints blank.
    Works fine when using Edge or Chrome as PDF viewer. This is on Windows 10 and 8

  4. 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.

  5. Bug introduced in latest Adobe Acrobat Reader DC - no option for duplex printing

    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?).

  9. 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.

  10. Formidable

    J’ai mis formidable et ça passe comme par miracle et pas résiliation impossible
    La malhonnêteté est au rendez vous . Comme beaucoup d’autres je ne peux résilier mon abonnement gratuit d’une semaine et demain date limite je vais être facture de 10,99€.
    Je vous préviens : si vous le faites ( et j’enregistre ce texte) je porte plainte pas pour moi seulement mais aussi pour les autres .
    Vous avez l’obligation de fournir les outils de résiliation en temps et en heure et pas après nous avoir arnaqué.
    Dépêchez vous de satisfaire cette requête .

  11. 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

  12. BugFix cpu usage

    since 2020 versions (this bug still persists in all updates until now) of acrobat reader dc for windows it happens that suddenly the application process requires a huge amount of cpu for no apparent reason and it won't stop until the program is closed

  13. there should be a way to set a default paper size for your printer in Acrobat Reader DC

    For some reason, Acrobat Reader DC assumes that all .pdf files will need to print on A4 paper. My printer is configured for Letterhead (8.5X11). I can reset the size when printing but should not need to do so. I'm fairly certain that none of the institutions sending me .pdf files are using A4 as they are located in Canada and Canada is still using Imperial sizes to maintain compatibility with the USA.

  14. remove the reply box from a comment

    Can you remove the reply box from a comment box, it gets in the way of the comment itself. Have the reply bit as part of the right hand side pane and not on the comment box itself

  15. 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.

  16. 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

  17. HowTo collapse bookmarks should be discoverable in the UI

    There are keyboard shortcuts to collapse bookmarks.
    These shortcuts should be discoverable in the UI.
    For example, the context menu for bookmarks should have the command, with the keyboard shortcut displayed next to it.

    I had to do a google search to find the keyboard shortcuts explained in a user forum:
    https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/expand-collapse-all-the-bookmarks-in-a-pdf-file/td-p/2372796/page/3?page=1

  18. Bug: Ctrl-H (Read Mode), Ctrl-0 (Zoom to Page), ..., Esc (exit full screen mode) FREEZE

    The sequence of UI actions below causes a repeatable freeze for me.

    (Acrobat Reader DC Continuous Release 2020.006.20042
    Windows 10 Home version 1909 build 18363.815)


    1. Open a pdf

    2. Ctrl-H (Read Mode) [use full height of screen]

    3. Ctrl-0 (Zoom to page) [that's a zero, not a letter]

    4. (optional): read document

    5. Esc (leave full-screen mode)

    Expect: exits full screen view, restore document in pane with bookmark sidebar

    Actual: exits full screen view, but freezes. Window still occupies full screen. Content areas are BLACK. Menubar and tabs reappear, but tabs are unresponsive. Right sidebar border appears, but not left sidebar.

    Workaround: after freeze,…

  19. Improve Page Display > Two Page View

    Please review and consider improving Two Page View to make easily readable and navigable when moving from page to page or view to view.

    Currently the fonts look compressed and readability is less than optimum.
