Scrolling in Acrobat has been incredibly frustrating but I've found a solution that works for me. I've had an issue with Acrobat DC for years now and I've spent a great deal of time trying to address it. Scrolling with a mouse wheel is extremely frustrating. One tiny bump scrolls down almost an entire page. I've tried the following solutions:

 

Preferences/Page Display/Page Layout: 'Single Page Continuous'
View/Page Display/Enable Scrolling

Interestingly, 'View/Page Display/Single Page' made the scroll rate manageable, but the transition between pages made some documents unreadable.

 

I FOUND A FIX! I use a Logitech mouse and got tired of their bloated software so I tried a new mouse management software called Mac Mouse Fix. An added bonus is that it's compatible with Apple Universal Control, which Logitech Options is not. With Mac Mouse Fix, I was able to add app specific settings for Acrobat to disable 'Smooth Scrolling'. With that, Acrobat scrolls like just about any other app I use. The smooth scrolling setting might not be universal to Mac Mouse Fix, but I couldn't find it in Logitech Options, Acrobat settings, or macOS settings. I hope some of you find this helpful.

 

TLDR; If you can find and disable a 'smooth scrolling' setting for your mouse in Acrobat, it might fix your scrolling issues.

Thanks for this! 

If you have a logitech mouse and use LogiOptions+ there is a smooth scrolling option available.  The key is, when you setup Point and Scroll for the mouse, you need to add Adobe Acrobat as the application instead of just using "Global Settings".
