  2. windows 10 64bit with 20H2 update. fully updated.

    go to preferences > security (enhanced) > enable protected view for ALL Files & run in appcontainer.

    i downloaded a pdf from my bank with my card statements and double clicked it.
    i opened the search box and tried to search for something, clicking somewhere in the app window, freezes the entire app and won't respond and must be forced closed.

    this behavior has never happened even on older v11 versions with protected view enabled.

    the app shouldn't freeze when searching with protected view enabled.

  4. The Reader app (all platforms) should be more generalized to allow "reading" of both EPUB or PDF documents.

    Similarly, we should be able to embed an EPUB into a PDF file. (PDF has a robust method that allows it to embed other file formats.)

    Then, we should have a switch in Reader that would let a user to switch from PDF to reflowable EPUB and back again.

    While I understand that Adobe is investing heavily in Liquid Mode, this EPUB method would be far more reliable for people who need to control the design of both static and reflowable modes.

  6. For the last few days, if I have more than a page of recent documents, when I open Adobe Reader, it immediately becomes unresponsive.

    I then have to open Adobe Reader by double clicking on a PDF document and clear the recent document list. Opening Adobe Reader this way means that it doesn't try to load the thumbnails for the recent documents, which is what I assume is the problem. Adobe Reader will then open correctly until the recent files list gets too big.

    As a workaround, I have just set the "Documents in recently used list" to 10 which…

  7. As a result of COVID, we are now forced to have virtual tribunal hearings and present testimony in PDF via screen sharing.

    Witnesses often have to point out something in an exhibit - a sentence or paragraph or a point on a map and it is difficult for viewers to see the hand tool because it is too smaller to be easily visible and may not have sufficient contrast with document colors to stand out.

    At in-person hearings, it was possible for a witness to stand up a point with their hand to an item on the main display screen…

    1. Brief title:
      Jump to specific page in pdf document via URL (browser extensions)

    2. Description of desired feature:
      When doing research for university, I often open many tabs at once. Sometimes books in pdf document form from my local file system. When closing google chrome and reopening on the other day, the document opens up at the first page. It would be nice if a) the document keeps its position when closing the browser and reopening, or b) via an #[pagenumber] at the end of the URI in the browser I can navigate to specific pages, especially on browser reopening -…

  9. 1) Don't pull info from Google to log me in. It automatically used the info from the wrong email account and it took forever to find the logout button (the symbol for my name/account info was not one I chose, it looked like a tiny pie chart).
    2) Make it affordable. $180 a year just to be able to edit documents is pretty steep. $25 a year....ok, I can see that. I expected to have full use of the system for that. I's even pay $50 per year. Maybe have multiple tiers for membership?
    3) Change the wording on your…

  10. please add and allow the cursor to change. I am visually impaired and have enlarged Window mouse pointer. When mouse pointer gets into the Reader, it "disappeared" and was so small and hard to follow!

  15. Acorbat Reader DC displays pages with unsightly white borders, including down the middle of any matter spanning page spreads, such as photographs.

    Also, I would like to be able to choose a custom background color, and hide all the toolbars, buttons, tabs and whatnot.

  16. As stated in the title, whenever Adobe Reader is opened and full screen (maximized) with the green button on a MacBook and a second screen is connected, suddenly the Adobe app get's minimized whenever the second screen is opened. The app button has to be found and clicked in the dock and then put on full screen again, to have it enlarged and appearing on the screen.

    If this bug could be fixed, it would be great!

  17. The popup doesnt contain a closing button, only an "OK" button, and pressing the Esc key does not close it, I believe for this kind of messages it is industry standard to close it with Esc key, as there are no other options, no repercussion and is meerly informative.

  18. I have no idea why interactive PDFs are no longer viewable with acrobat. Which is very annoying and stupid. Whenever I am trying to view an interactive element of the PDF, acrobat just tells me it is connecting and then suddenly closed the whole document (aka crashing). I don't understand why we are paying so much for adobe when they could not simply do their job. Very frustrating indeed. Worst user experience ever.

  19. Hello,
    After going through all options, I haven't found one feature I really desire. I would love to print brooklet, however, there is no option for manual duplex printing.
    Ex. after choosing brooklet, there is no option to choose it. The only way is the manual printing, ex/ 1 and 68, manual pages flip in the printer, 2-67... new page :)

    Would it be ever possible to print brooklet both-sided for printers not supporting automatic duplex?

    Looking to hear back from you guys and I believe you would add this feature in future realeases :)
