Are you still facing this issue?
What is the current version of Adobe Acrobat Reader installed?
I think you may have tried this before, but would you try this again : to grant the Storage permissions to Adobe Acrobat in the phone ‘Settings’(Home Screen —> Settings —> Applications—> Adobe Acrobat —>Permissions —> Storage).
Then restart the device and check again.
Hello Tariq Darren,
I use the Version 16.2
I test your workaround.
But the permission was all ready enable.
I test it to disable and enable and restart my device, but nothing its change
I can only save to the internal SD-Card from the device.
The Adobe Reader App can't write to my 128 GB external microSD Card with exFat Format.
With other Apps I can save when I give the Permission. See the Screenshots above.
Dear Christian S.
Here The Screenshots from my App Settings/ App Permission:
Would you let us know the current version of Andriod OS you are using? And if you have any files available on the external SD card, if you try to comment or annotate the file are you able to save the file?
Hello Tariq Dar,

The Problem is the Adobe Reader App have are only read permissio .
Please fix this bug with a adjustment App in the API
Lock here are the Manual to change the Settings for Developer:
Other Developers are make it the Workaround above. See my Screenshots.
now is this Comment/Bug nearly one year old.
Wy Adobe do not fix the problem?
For example in Adobe Lightroom Mobile for Android was the same problem with save on external SD Card. Some time ago Adobe fix it and work.
1. Edit API with Write Permission for External SD in the App and unlock it general for external Card.
2. Add the Tool from Android for unlock the Write Permission.
The User can select the SD Card and give it the Write Permission.
This is the Standard Workaround for all Apps on Android 5.x, 6.x, 7.x.
All Developers are make it so and this it comfort with the Security Concept from Android.
