  1. Please add Adobe Scan to Surface Pro (X)

    Dear Adobe team, please add adobe scan to Microsoft Surface Pro (X).

    At the moment, in order to use Adobe scan, you need to use your cell phone and then upload the scan to the cloud.

    On the one hand this is very time consuming, on the other hand it requires an active internet connection, which cannot always be guaranteed, especially when you are not at home.

    With an integration of Adobe Scan on Surface Pro (X), you could make very fast professional scans offline.

    I know that you have added Adobe Scan to the iPad, which could be compared…

  2. Login with multiple Adobe IDs

    Enable multiple IDs to log into Adobe on the same computer at the same time. Ex: one ID for professional use and one for personal use.

  4. Provide Reader with the Same Permission Capabilities Acrobat Has

    When I click to link to a video clip, Acrobat Pro DC asks my permission since it might harm my PC, and it gives me a box to check to say 'No, don't ask me again'. Also, I can go to Edit > Preferences and say 'Always' grant permission for whichever available players are listed. That solves a serious problem for me since my PDFs have over 100 little video clips in them, and readers will hate having to give permission again and again and again. Unfortunately these capabilities exist only in Acrobat, not in Reader. When I click to…

  5. Permit me to configure a background color for searched-for-and-found text

    In some documents, there is by coincidence background colors that are very close to the color that Acrobat uses to enhance the visibility of searched-for text.

    In Acrobat preferences there is no way of changing this background color. For me, searched-for-and-found would be shaded a bright yellow. The default value is nice on a white background, but no use on documents that happen to have a similar (slate blue) color background.

  6. Acrobat lite add-on to Reader

    It would be nice if you could make a more affordable version of Acrobat, or an add-on to the Reader, with just TWO capabilities: merge pdfs and password protect. Users like me do not need to modify pdfs, convert from MS Office, sign, etc. etc. etc. And once or twice a month need to merge or password protect so a monthly fee to Adobe is rediculous for occasional use. If built into Reader, which I'm sure you won't do, that would be very nice of you so that users like me could do the simpler tasks without having to use…

  7. FIX Unable to print mixed letter and legal size using a Mac

    This appears to be an ongoing issue for the past several years and I am still experiencing what so many others have found. There is a problem printing a LARGE (100+) PDF with mixed legal and letter sized pages using Adobe Reader on a Mac with a Brother laser printer.

    I think that Adobe support has not been able to recreate the issue because their test file has only two pages. If they create a 100+ page test file with mixed letter and legal and they should be able to replicate the issue.

    Here is what I have:

  8. Inserting Certificate in Right Aligned mode reverts Date & Time strings

    When creating a new certificate there is the option to "right align" the entries. In the preview it seemed to invert the position of Name and Date/Time fields (which is what I was looking for, actually), and the strings looked good. After having inserted the signature and reviewing the stored document the actual date and time strings read backwards (c.f. screenshot attached: top row "auto" alignment, bottom row "right" alignment).
    While the reverted strings may be a bug, the actual feature request would be to have two options:
    - left / right center alignment of the entries, if you consider…

  9. An error occurs when printing with the command ( Acrobat Reader DC ver.20.012.20041 ).

    Acrobat Reader DC was updated to ver.20.012.20041 the other day.

    Since then, the following error message appears when printing with the command.

    Adobe Acrobat Reader DC has stopped working
    The program did not work properly due to a problem.

    The program will close and Windows will notify you if there is a solution

    Printing is done just by issuing a message.

    The command I am using is:
    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat Reader DC\Reader\AcroRd32.exe" /n /p /h "<PDF file path>"

    The execution environment is as follows.

  12. ******** couldn't save could have lost a day's work stupid POS

    someone already said it Ill say it again **, I just wanted to SAVE. To use the SAVE function which has presumably existed and been replicated successfully on every other word processing program and PDF editor. Nice little gadgets and ads ** *** too bad I CANT SAVE ANYTHING.

    I am using an up-to-date Windows 10 computer.
    When trying to save, a totally blank, white 'save as' prompt appears that does nothing, leaving no choice as far as I could find but to exit without saving. Thank ******

  13. THE NEW ADOBE ACROBAT DOESN'T WORK FOR ME. THE WINDOWS 8 VITAGE OF ACROBAT WORKED GREAT, I COULD SCAN SEVERAL PAGES AND EMAIL THEM WITH ONE

    THE OLDER VERSIONS, I COULD SCAN SEVERAL PAGES AND CLICK ON THE MAIL ICONE AND SEND THEM. NOW I HAVE TO DO A SAVE AS, THEN OPEN UP EMAIL AND SEND. I USED TO BE ABLE TO TYPE TEXT ON A PDF, NOT NOW. WINDOWS 8 WORKED GREAT NOW I HAVE ALL KINDS OF PROBLEMS AND MY COMPUTER RUNS MUCH SLOWER AND IT IS ONLY A YEAR OLD.

  14. Bug: Reader DC v20.012.20041 crashing on open for Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2

    Serveral users in different environments having issues with the August 2020 update. Reader DC no longer works to open PDFs. Uninstall and Reinstall, and repair have not fixed the issue. Issue exists on Windows 8.1 systems and Windows Server 2012 R2. Issue occurs when attempting to open PDFs. On some uninstall and reinstall, tests of opening PDFs are successful, and then start failing again.

  17. RichMedia mp4 playback with Flash disabled not working

    According to:

    https://helpx.adobe.com/uk/acrobat/kb/flash-format-support-in-pdf.html

    "Playback of non-Flash media (excluding *.flv and *.swf) content in PDFs will continue to be supported."

    I tested the sample-formatter-richmedia.pdf file in Acrobat Reader "Continuous Release 2020.009.20074" with Flash disabled and the video was not playable.

  18. auto scroll loop

    Auto scroll and speed choise are great but when the pdf arrives at the end and you want to see it many times you have to go again at the beginning and choose auto scrool.I suggest to implement the feature for the document to automatically loop and play over and over until you decide to stop it. Windows Media player has a repeat feature and power point also.I would like the same for acrobat reader.
    It would be great for educational purposes to repeat the same information until it is memorised.(REPETITION IS THE MOTHER OF RETENTION..)
    It seems from the…

  19. Mais marca textos.

    Adoraria que o Adobe Reader tivesse a opção de utilizar duas cores de realce de texto sem ter que ir em propriedades. Usualmente uso de duas a três cores para realçar meus textos e, se tivesse um ícone com seria bem mais fácil e usual.
    Obrigada!
