Full Tools, Menu customisation
Acrobat DC wastes so much screen space in non-customisable areas - It is common to 'snap' the Acrobat Application to Half-Screen - but doing so hides many menu Tools, but ALWAYS leaves 'Home, Tools, Document & then The Login Name. - These are rarely (never) used.
Please allow them to be Hidden, Or return Menu/Tool icons to a 'normal' design/style as used in the previous 10 versions of Acrobat.
'PRO' does not = Tablet user.
Please make the icon size smaller or give users the option to make it smaller.
LET US DECIDE IF WE WANT TO SEE THE RECENT FILE MENU AND TURN IT OFF!!!!!

Interface is clunky and difficult to navigate. Full support of menu customization including ability to create user defined keyboard shortcuts and workspaces would be a huge improvement.

You can delete all recent files by clicking on 'Clear Recent Files' button at the bottom in 'Recent tab'

Hide the list of recent files when I launch Acrobat Pro DC

I have been searching for an option to permanently hide the tools pane that always pops up on the right side of the screen upon opening Acrobat Pro DC. After reading various blogs I see that it is apparently not possible to remove this from appearing, so I will have to manually hide it EVERY SINGLE TIME the program is opened. How annoying is that? Please include an option to disable this pane with the next update. I most often just need to use Acrobat for viewing documents, and rarely/never use any of the options in the Tools pane that take up such a large part of the default reading screen.

I find the user interface of Acrobat Pro DC to be intrusive and inefficient, especially the home screen which takes over the screen. I've installed DC three times since it came out, and each time I've deleted it within an hour because using it is so painful. One feature I use a lot is commenting, and commenting in DC is almost unusable. Perhaps if choosing the old interface were an option, then I might be able to upgrade. Until then, nope.

In addition, please allow customisation of the headings. I look for:
- "Pages" not "Organize Pages" (or "Page Organization" if you must)
- "Media" not "Rich Media"
- "Forms" not "Prepare Form"
I can't intuitively find anything in the new interface - the search tools works well, but if I'm having to use it to find everything the interface has failed.
I have been using Adobe products for 20+ years, and I am very irritated at the direction they are going. Why should I have to wait 1-5 seconds for a "home" screen to open; why do I have to FIND the tools I need, when the last iteration (sidebar tools, easily accessed) was so simple, so quick? And if the window is not full-screen, I have to click to access the icons in the toolbar because they are so large. I am a professional and work on a laptop. If you want to create an iPad-loving version, sell it as such.
Specifically on the toolbar customization, the search box should be able to be added (not just the find icon)
