Basic "Go to a page" links don't work in mobile apps

I have a variety of PDFs with "go to a page" links that only function on the desktop. These are added in Acrobat Pro DC with both link and form (button) options. None work with the Acrobat Reader on the iOS. Oddly enough launched as a "recent document " from the iPad home bar or with an alternate reader (Good Reader) the PDFs all perform correctly. These are not links to web pages, external docs only pages inside of the PDF itself. Is there a security toggle I'm missing?

Hi gatz​,

We just released Acrobat 18.10.00 to the App Store on October 14.

This release addresses the link problem that you have experienced. Please let us know if Acrobat 18.10.00 works for you.

Thank you for your patience.

The Android version does not have the bug. The pdf reader built into Dropbox works on the ipad.

Hi gatz​,

Thank you for reporting the problem with hyperlinks.

The problem was introduced in Acrobat 18.09.13 for iOS (not for Android).

We are currently working on a fix for the problem.  We plan to release the fix in the near future.

Sorry for the inconvenience.
