  2. New design is TERRIBLE. Where is the ribbon? Where are the display tools.

  3. My Acrobat Pro DC opens automatically when I boot my Mac.
    Each time I have to close the annoying start-up screen where the last documents are displayed. I don’t need it! Please provide an option again to disable this feature as it where in past versions of Acrobat. Thank you.

  4. I'd like to revert to the previous version of Acrobat - the new version is NOT better - more confusing!

  6. What users need in the new interface...

    Fellow users, please add or vote up the features that are most critical for you.
    (Interface-related only, not new features or utilities.)

    ONE:
    A totally customizable set of toolbars — left, right, top, and bottom of the application window, and also on a side monitor.

    — User determines which toolbars are visible.

    — User can dock or float them anywhere, including on a second monitor that's outside the application window.

    — User chooses which tools are in each toolbar.

    — User chooses whether each tool/utility is represented as an icon only, icon +…

  7. Using: Acrobat Pro DC

    Request: Ability to set a global setting that hides the bookmarks panel whenever a new PDF is opened, as opposed to having to navigate to the initial view settings for each file and then save it.

    Reason: I open a lot of PDF files from emails, as I'm sure thousands of other people do, with no intention of saving it in that instance. Or files from the internet, again with no intention of saving it. This is to VIEW the file and find content relevant to the task in hand. Having the bookmarks panel occupy a…

  8. I almost got a heart attack. I was working on a pdf, then I opened a new document and the Acrobat interface was completely different.

    I use Acrobat every day and the new interface is too different from the old one. Tools are difficult to find because they have been placed somewhere else.

    I definitely don't have time to learn how to use a new software. I didn't not appreciate to be face to this suddent change without any warning.

    It would be better to give user the option to customize the left and right pannels. If it's already possible,…

  9. The latest page layout is so confusing. Why did you do this to us?! It's one thing to update looks and add/subtract features. But you swapped sides. Now all editing tools are on the left and navigation (bookmarks etc.) are on the right. Why do this? That just slows us down and confuses us when we are used to it being editing on the right and navigation on the left. There doesn't seem to be a purpose in swapping them except to torment us. Perhaps you can add a preference in settings where we can make the layout as we…

  10. Congratulations on complicating something that should be really straight forward. At least make everything editable, so I can keep the buttons I use more as shortcuts. The pages navigator and zoom being on the right side is just plain stupid.

  11. DC Pro is very flash with some nice fearures. However, It is extremely frsutrating that it is not possible to open more than one tool bar at a time. For example - it is not unusual to want to edit AND comment - as this requires two tool bars for access to the different tools, there is a slow and annoying requirement to close and open tool bars when trying to edit and comment on work . Please consider reviewing. This was so much more efficient in Acrobat 10. thanks

  12. PLEASE....please.....don't ever disable or fail to support the "Disable New Acrobat" in View. The new interface is awful and there is no real support for it. Took me a half-hour to figure out "find and replace" and still didn't get it to work well. Stamps are in a bad place.

    All ok as long as this isn't forced on us until a LARGE volume of help and online answers to questions builds up...like in 2026.

  14. New layout for Adobe is horrible!
    Why did Adobe change something that wasn't broken?
    All of the icons/buttons used to be along the top ribbon of the screen and now there's some on the left, some on the right and some on the top. And now I can't even find some (for example insert text box and take a snapshot) that I use constantly.
    I had everything customized as I use Adobe constantly in my job and now this is causing me a lot of unnecessary stress.
    Adobe should offer their customers the option of reverting back to the old…

  16. Please create a functionality to save all tabs with one click. Currently we need to go through every tab to save them. And while at it, close all and print all -functions would come handy too.

  17. Please revert back the icon color of Acrobat Standard DC to red or any other color but black. The black color has poor visibility and not eye friendly.

    Request to take it on priory basis if possible as its slow down working speed as we loose the visibility of the icon on taskbar

  18. What have you done to my ADobe viewer?
    It just changed in the middle of the day!
    I dont know how to use this "new" version
    Whoever thought of this is terrible idea
    Now i have to try and figure out all new way to do the PDFs
    Please put it back to NORMAL!!!
    I can;t find anything.
    If its not broken, why are you trying to "fix" it?

  19. My Idea is this: stop wasting precious developer time fixing things that AREN'T BROKEN! Geez, who wants to learn an all-new interface in in order to do the same work they've always done? Geez, you people have lost touch with reality. Software is supposed to support the users, making their productivity higher, and easier. Changfing interfaces does not do that Thank God someone was smart enough to include a Disable option! But you should have saved your energy for something important. Because all that time and effort making a less useable interface for me was a complete waste. Blind users…

  20. Th new userinterface is all over the place. We have a big grey unused border at the right and some random icons and tools at the left. It's not possible to move te tools from the left to the right, so theres always a toolbox above the pdf I want to read, while the right border is half empty. This is horrible, non-efficient and really annoying while reading.
