Dear all,

last week (without changing anything on my system) DC Reader 2015.016.20041 started to display a black square when I selected the arrow to mark text. Looks like this:

Browsing Adobe’s forums it was clear that I’m not alone. The solution from Adobe’s support:
  1. Set Windows explorer to show hidden files.
  2. Navigate to local appdata folder, e.g.,
    C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\Adobe\Acrobat\DC
  3. Delete the file IconCacheRdr.dat
  4. Launch Reader.
Helped for my local PDFs but not for ones displayed in the browser. Hence:
  1. Purge your browser’s cache.
  2. Close and launch again.

Cheers,
Helmut Schütz
