Adobe Reader has a "Reading Mode" that is very nice for reading books and other documents but unfortunately, it hides the status bar on my Essential Phone.

This phone has a notch so when the status bar is hidden, instead of disappearing completely, it becomes blank instead. I'd rather see my notifications and especially the clock at all times.

I tried with adb:

settings put global policy_control immersive.status=-com.adobe.reader

but it still didn't force it, the status area remains blank :(

Is there some sort of other adb command that can override this application control to show the notification area as usual, around the notch?
