i have the latest 2018 iPad Pro with gen 2 pencil, my issue is that i cannot seem to use it with acrobat which is so frustrating. There are apps that help but are not very good. I saw an older post that said hold your finger down on a blank area and “freehand” would appear. I don’t get that, only “select all“ or ”copy”  

Please help, without this function my uses for the iPad are almost nil.

Thanks

Hi darrynstephenRSA,

As per the issue description mentioned above, you are unable to use apple pencil in acrobat reader on your ipad, is that correct?

Tap pen icon in the bottom-right>comment

Tap pencil icon( in the top bar) and check if that brings freehand tool.

Refer: Working with PDF — Acrobat Reader Mobile App

Let us know if you need any help.

Hi there,

I have a similar issue.  I have 2 documents saved to Adobe Reader on my iPad Pro.  When I open the first PDF I can see the pencil icon in the lower-right corner and I can tap on it to see the usual Pencil menu, select the color, etc.  However when I open the second PDF I don't see the blue pencil icon in the lower-right corner so I can't use the pencil to draw.  Why might I see the blue icon for pencil drawing in one document but not in the other?

Hello,

 

I am also having issues with not being able to edit PDFs since updatig to 19.12.00. The blue pencil option only exists on the Welcome PDF that comes pre-installed on the app. See the below screenshot of one of the PDFs I am trying to edit with the Pencil:
