  1. Can't open more than 1 file at a time

    Clients with Windows 10 1809 or more (or Win2019) trying to access a PDF via a DFS that is stored on a Windows server 2019 server are not able to open more than 1 pdf.

    Can this please be fixed as Windows Sever 2019 is being used more widely.

  2. 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

  3. Bug: Adobe Reader "save" prompts "save-as"

    I am having an issue when saving documents in Adobe Reader, when I hit "save" it prompts a "save-as" box every time which required me to navigate to the document to save it. This is happening for me on windows 10. I've uninstalled and re-installed the program and am getting the same issue. Thanks

  4. 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,…

  5. 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.

  7. Bug: Adobe Reader 2020.006.20034 - Incorrect service name for DDE communication

    The issue exists in all Adobe Reader versions released in 2020.

    To establish DDE communication with Adobe Reader, a client needs to know DDE service name. It can be read from the following entry in Windows registry:
    Computer\HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\acrobat\shell\open\ddeexec\application
    This entry is created/updated during Adobe Reader installation.
    Adobe Reader 2020.006.20034 saves the following value to this entry: "AcroViewR19". Our application reads this value and tries to establish DDE connections with Adobe Reader. However, DDE connection fails when "AcroViewR19" is used as service name. When the registry value is corrected to “AcroViewR20” – DDE connection successfully establishes. Any update of…

  8. Split View Ability

    It would be very useful if there was a split view feature where you could view two sections of the same document at once. Just like some text editors where you can grab a control at the top or bottom of the vertical scroll bar and pull it to make two views. Saves a bunch of time when looking at documents like datasheets, specifications, etc.

  15. Adobe Sign should be included in Reader and free

    I love the idea of a paper free world, and Adobe Sign might help so much to it. It could mean the end of printing documents to just sign and file them. I don’t get how come the Adobe managers have not realized of the great opportunity that lays out in front of them. An opportunity to make this product viral and as popular as the reader. Even more, making Acrobat Pro free, too. Now, it’s the perfect time for it when the world is under a lockdown and strongly needs great tools to produce documents and sign them. Please,…

    In other pdf's, the selection tool is working fine.
    but in this pdf file, whenever I am trying to select the text or highlight the text, it will highlight or select text in between lines space.

  17. Allow selective print of tiles from Poster print / Tiled print

    When printing a "Poster" or tiled printout, where the PDF is not scaled but is printed on multiple sheets, one should be able to selectibely only print certain sheets. This is useful, for example, if you have a 15 or 20 sheet print of some architectural plans (or any large file) and you have a printer error with 2 pages to go. Now you have to re-print everything, which could take an hour or more depending on printer, and is a waste of energy, ink, an paper and harms the environment. Another use of such functionality is if I need…

  18. (The free version) On macOS you should NOT break normal system behaviors like "Print to PDF".

    That is a system behavior and is expected of all apps on macOS. "Print to PDF" is NOT a creative function, but an output function. It would be useful for getting around bugs etc, related to printing.

  19. I am trying to print a single page of my PDF. I ask it to print page 2, and it prints page 12.

    When a single page or range of pages is printed, print the correct page(s). I was trying to print page 2 of my PDF, and page 12 printed.

    I got around it by going to page 2 and printing current page.
