  1. I am annoyed and distracted by the constant prompts to use Adobe's Generative AI feature. I do not want this feature. I have disabled the feature. But I still see a brightly colored button advertising it every time I open Adobe. What is worse, when I try to do a simple search, I get another prompt encouraging me to use Generative AI. I already pay $20/month for Acrobat. I should not have view ads on software I am paying for. But Adobe repeatedly forces me to view what is essentially an ad for an feature I do not want. It's…

  2. Allow admins to disable Generative AI from the admin portal. It is absolutely ridiculous to release anything related to LLM without an option to disable it across users.

  3. Give an option to remove AI from toolbar and/or to turn off pop-up/tip to users instead of having to rely on admin. It's distracting. At least put an x so we can dismiss the pop-up.

    Alternatively, change the color so it isn't so distracting that it causes productivity loss.

    I'm at a loss why Adobe would roll that out as a non-optional visual trespass.

  4. Get that damned AI Assistant button OFF the top of my screen! It keeps popping up right over top of the scroll bar, making it impossible to quickly advance through the first page of a document -- right when all the introductory material I want to skim past is there. Why can't this thing be removed or disabled? The last thing I need is a summary made by a bot with the intelligence of your average high-schooler. This is the most annoying software add-on since "Clippy".

  5. AI Insanity!

    Provide a verifiable way to completely remove AI Assistant in Adobe Reader. I do not want an AI anything capturing any financial or other privacy related documents and processing them in the cloud, especially in Beta form. Most users will not read to the point of understanding the cloud aspect of this. This is a ridiculous and even dangerous function to offer, promote and even present to the general user.

  6. PLEASE stop making this thing pop up at me. I do not want it. Every time I open a document it bugs me to "summarize" it or give me info on it, but the info it gives is incorrect, wrong, and purely made up. It's a stupid, useless tool built on stolen data. Stop shoving it down my throat. I have no need for a inaccurate summary of anything!! What benefit is that?

  7. Create an update option without AI Assistant. Don’t make us remove it: many of us don’t trust having it on there in the first place.

  8. This whole feature is a distraction. We cannot be so busy that we must now have artificial intelligence helping us with our jobs. The pop-up is always in the way; I can't turn it off no matter what I've tried from the recommendations, including reverting back to the "old" Adobe; the prior version of Acrobat is so old and has been out of use so long, now I'm trying to retrain where to find the simplest tools. I was happily used to using the newer version, until this AI piece was added in. Please get this out of here; it…

  9. Please make the pop ups stop. It's a useless feature for me. I don't want to use it, but instead the app keeps crashing because of the stupid pop up.

  10. Despite having disabled generative AI in the preferences, it is still not possible to remove or hide the generative AI button. It does not help that I am trying to use Acrobat for academic purposes, for which generative AI is against academic integrity.

  11. Disable Generative AI. Aside from the disruptive UX/UI aspect of how Gen AI is being pushed onto users, there is also the fact that a number of your users (myself included) are literally not allowed to use Gen AI in our work. Furthermore, surely Adobe is aware that there are a number of use cases where PDFs very often represent the most sensitive, private and/or confidential documents that people use and work with. Think court documents, legal and contractual agreements, government documents. As a result the last thing users in these contexts want is the sense that Adobe is foisting…

  12. If I want to use these features (and I don't) I'll seek them out. Having to click through distracting dialogue boxes every time I open Acrobat is grating. Please stop using your product to advertise your product.

  14. I very intentionally do not have "Enable generative AI features in Acrobat" checked in my Preferences. For security reasons, I can't use AI in my work, nor do I want to. This appears to be the only place I can indicate my choice not to use Adobe's AI features.

    However, I still have:
    1) a pop-up pushing AI every time I open Adobe;
    2) a bright flashy button at the top of my screen pushing AI;
    3) now when I highlight a word the popup with editing tools ALSO includes an "ask AI assistant" option.

    This is incredibly distracting when…

  15. I am a doctorate researcher writing my thesis on child protection, I also have ADHD. Wanted to use the AI assistant to help with gathering information but due to content restrictions I was unable to do this.

    Understand these are placed for safety reasons, but perhaps have a profession/academic sign up where people can log in with their institution and can use this feature with less restrictions? I work in forensic psychology and know a lot of colleagues who would benefit from this tool but won't be able to use it due to the limited access.

  16. Naturally, I use adobe acrobat reader mainly for reading pdfs. However, with the new update, I find the big bright colourful button in the top right corner very distracting. Acrobat reader is designed mainly for viewing pdfs, so it would make sense for it to have a streamline user interface that puts emphasis on the pdf being viewed. While that is the strategy adopted by most pdf viewers, it seems like acrobat reader took a turn for the worst and decided to sacrifice user interface in order to force AI features that nobody asked for into their users workflow.
    Please,…

  17. Ich muss oft Dokumente einscannen, die natürlich nicht den gewünschten Dateinamen haben. Jedes einzelne Dokument zu öffnen um es dann umbenennen zu können ist unheimlich Zeitaufwändig. Es wäre daher sinnvoll ein Tool zu haben, das den Text erkennt und daraus automatisch einen passenden Dateinamen generiert.

  18. I was thinking of buying acrobat AI assistant these days. but I gave up when I saw that it has serious limitations like 25 MB and 120 pages. this is very strange. because the adobe brand as a PDF creator should not have such a small capacity. My faith and trust in Adobe has been shaken after seeing other PDF AI applications scanning PDF files like 10k pages and 150MB. We expect you to offer the best capacity for the type of file you create. At least 100 MB and 1000 page scanning capacity. You have created great frustration for…
