This might work if you have an overflow button.  What happens if you don't have 1?

For devices not containing the overflow button, such as some Samsung devices, all the operations performed using the overflow button are provided by the Hardware menu button.

all my PDF's are gone, only one new download shows when I click the "floating action" thing, and then in "settings" or "display advanced devices", NOTHING shows. I can't find or access ANY of my old PDF files. Thanks a bunch for taking all my work idiots. Just give us our "document" tab back. ALL my working PDF's are gone - IDIOTS. I did not even ASK for an update - Adobe just decided I needed it!!!

What is the device and Android version that you are using? Could you send a screenshot of the screen which comes after tapping on the Floating action button? Do you observe an 'Internal Storage' tab? All your PDFs are still present on your device and you can open them from the Internal storage. Please let us know if you still encounter some issue.

Thanks.

what I had to do was to go to my BACK UP COPIES on my desktop. Put all the PDF files in a folder, load the folder on a SD card. Insert the SD card in  my tablet/ phone/device. Open "Reader DC", click the RED floating search button thing in the lower right. Find the SD card in the menu somewhere. Find the PDF folder you loaded. THEN, click on one PDF file at a time, and when prompted to "create a local file", click yes or OK, whatever. Now each file SHOULD appear under the "recent" tab. Unless of course you want to put everything on "the cloud".

Why do ALL the suggestions by the moderator end up linking back here? Some of us do not WANT or NEED the "cloud". Why must you force us to it? I was just getting a feel for actually doing something on my tablet, now this. I think I'll go back to books, paper & pencils!!!

The "Internal Storage" button is easy enough to find. The problem is that the one folder that is missing is the "Adobe" folder that was the default storage folder in the previous version. I had created several sub-folders in there to manage all of my documents. Now I can find every folder on my device except for the ones I need.

The 'Adobe Reader' folder as well as the new default 'Adobe Acrobat' folder can be accessed in the 'Downloads' folder of your internal storage.

The problem is that it takes very long to find the documents and you have to go back every time you need to open another file.

It used to be a good App, so it is really sad the way it was downgraded

Once you click on internal storage click download and adobe file is in there with old document that would've been in my saved documents. Worked on my s5 hopefully it helps somebody else. I still haven't figured out how to add more PDF to a file tho on this new version any help would be useful..

but shouldn't a 'new & improved' product retain all it's original functionality PLUS added time/work saving features? The new "Reader" ADDS more steps/ clicks, scrolling thru menus & disabled some very useful functions. NOW I fully embrace certain 'conspiracy' theories that involve 'the cloud' and 'herding sheeple' !!!
