  2. Arrow Key Scrolling Incrementation Consistency

    So I have noticed that the arrow key scrolling when using the hand tool has somewhat inconsistent increment sizes. If I press the up or down arrow key once the distance scrolled is about half a line. If I hold down an arrow key to begin the fast scrolling, then let go and continue pressing the arrow keys rapidly, the increment is more like a line and a half.

    I find this inconsistency extremely annoying, especially since the fast scrolling is redundant because of the page jumping that is achievable with the left and right arrow keys, and that the…

  3. Upto spelled incorrectly on Toner saved message

    In Adobe Reader DC version 2021.001.20145 on Windows 10 a message box pops up about percentage of Toner saved. "Upto 15% of Toner has been saved while printing this PDF". The word "Upto" is missing a space.

  6. Mouse/cursor changes in reader window to a specific Reader mouse/cursor

    ... and I am not referring to the distinction between hand and select tool. I am referring to another problem:

    I have set my own cursor scheme for Windows (Lefty Scheme) in Windows system settings. Every application accepts that but Adobe Reader. Whenever using the reader the mouse changes from a white arrow pointing to the upper right corner (lefty scheme) to a black arrow pointing to the upper left corner.

    How can I change this? I want the Reader to use the Windows System setting.

    I am using Windows 10 Pro 64 Bit, Version 1709, OS Buils 16299.431 and…

  7. Would like to remove the editing toolbar from opening with every document

    Recently it appears that a "feature" was added to Reader DC such that whenever you open a PDF, the editing toolbar with a button to click for a free 7 day trial of Acrobat, which looks ugly and unprofessional. The client would have to click an arrow to the right to move it out of the way, or go into View-Read Mode to see the uncluttered document. Or use full screen which is unwieldy.

  8. Replicate the Adobe Acrobat Internet Explorer extensions over to Microsoft Edge Chromium

    Most people are moving to Microsoft Edge Chromium and within our company we plan to move to this browser as a default.
    These new chromium browsers don't support Active x and OBH's.

    Currently the Adobe Extension from the Chrome Web Store seems to be the only Extension Solution to open PDF's from Edge Browsers but all this does is open the document in the installed Application and not within the existing Frame, as the Extension previously would.

  10. Hand tool on touchscreen suggestions

    Hello,

    It would be nice to have the hand tool navigation on touchscreens include options for continuous pinch zoom (at the time of writing, the app zooms in steps) and momentum scrolling.

    These features already work using a MacBook touchpad (for example).

    Kind regards.

  11. Opening a PDF in a Windows virtual desktop should open an instance of Acrobat in the current virtual desktop

    With the introduction of virtual desktops in Windows 10, some users such as myself have multiple projects going on simultaneously. The virtual desktop feature greatly aids compartmentalization in this aspect.

    Let us say I am working in a virtual desktop called vd3 for instance, and I do not currently have an instance of Acrobat running on vd3. Now I open a PDF file and there is already an instance of Acrobat running on a different virtual desktop, say vd1. Now, instead of opening a new instance of Acrobat in vd3, Windows forces a switch to vd1 and opens my PDF…

  12. Fix Issue: Adobe MIP Plugin checks for an Azure AD account and this causes an error to display for consumers (non-business users)

    If a company uses MIP to protect a PDF file and sends that file to an external consumer's (a user at an @gmail.com, @yahoo.com, @hotmail.com, etc) email address, that user experiences an error when attempting to open the protected document as the Adobe MIP Plugin tries to log the user into the Adobe Inc Azure Active Directory and fails.

    While the user can then dismiss the error message and still consume the content, this should be transparent and align with the experience of opening an MIP-protected Office document in the same scenario.

  13. Create an option in UI to incorporate an option to retain multiple files opened in the software with a single click

    I work with many files in Acrobat Reader, like 5 files, the same files for days together. I would love to have an option where I can make Acrobat remember the files that I opened in the last session and restore the same with a single click (like that we get "Restore" when the program crashes and we open in just after that. This is simple but saves a lot of time from user end.

  14. "highlight current bookmark" does not work any more

    When the above option is selected the hightlighting of the current bookmark should follow the reading, i.e. the hightlighted bookmark should be synchronous to the currently read text. This was the case in former Readers but does not work any more.

  15. system menu from taskbar issue

    Using Reader DC 2021.001.20145 on Windows 10 (20H2) in Desktop mode (tablet mode off).

    When accessing system menu (restore, move, size, minimize, maximize, close) by clicking icon in upper left of window, the menu items work fine. But when accessing the same menu from the taskbar (hover, wait for popup, right-click on pop-up), the functions are ignored (minimize, move, size), act differently (close), or act strangely (maximize).

  17. Very specific issue with Adobe Reader on a Mac

    I am a professor of Ancient Greek, and use many documents that use polytonic Greek fonts. For some reason, when I copy-paste from PDFs opened in Adobe Reader on a Mac (no problems on a PC!), one particular character doesn't get copies (ἀ). Many similar characters are just fine (e.g. ἁ, ᾶ, ά, ἂ etc). When I open the same files with other programs/browsers on the Mac, there are no issues. I know this is hyperspecific, but I wanted to bring it to your attention.

  18. Doesn't copy accented greek letter

    Reader highlights, but doesn't copy the accented Greek alpha with smooth breathing in text:


    GREEK SMALL LETTER ALPHA WITH PSILI
    Unicode: U+1F00, UTF-8: E1 BC 80

    pdftotext reads it just fine, as does MacOS PDF reading system.

    Example PDF: https://geoffreysteadman.files.wordpress.com/2014/09/platosymp-sept14.pdf

    letter on several pages including p. 22.
