Known Issues with Adobe Reader 8.1.2
Earlier we had maintained a Known Issues page for Reader 8.1.1 and got overwhelming response and feedback on that – it was a great success because that page provided a platform for both us (the developers of the product) and you (the users) to share ideas and feedback. The results of keeping that page was that we were able to tackle and fix issues faster, and you were able to report any new issues quickly.
This page attempts to do the same thing, for Reader 8.1.2. This page will be updated regularly with new Known Issues in this release. Note that a “Known Issue” listed on this page is one that has been confirmed to be a bug in this release by Adobe testers and has been logged in our internal bug tracking system. These issues are our highest priority and we try to fix them by the next patch or major release.
So please keep your feedback coming in as it has been so far and help us improve this product! You can post your feedback either on this page or on the User-to-user forums and we’ll see to it that we resolve your issue.
