There was no talk of a workaround before my post and your approach appeared as a solution. Therefore you have been notified to mark the topic accordingly. A simple remark that this is not what you wanted would have been enough.
Regarding the problem a possible solution is to roll back the Adobe Reader (AR) to a version of the 9er series. But since the AR is not the best product to work with (La)TeX editors, it's worth a thought to use another PDF viewer like »Sumatra PDF«. A search in the forum will yield much useful information about its advantages and how to make it work with different editors.

You seem to have difficulties with directions of a moderator to enforce the rules. I recommend to talk less big, read the rules and something about netiquette. It still applies that the topic shall be marked as soon as the problem is solved. And by the way, every board member is allowed to refer you to the rules if necessary.
