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.
This is the worst adobe I've ever used. Functionality hardly exist in this version. Icons are to large on the tool bar and a lot of unnecessary wasted space.
Just spent 10 minutes trying to crop something. It was easy ONCE I FOUND IT. Everything is dumbed down into kindergarten-style icons, and buried in a deep hierarchy of oftentimes nonsensical categories! I have Acrobat 11 at work and treasure it. Hear at home I am forced to curse at DC. Adobe, you have joined Microsoft and several other companies that I will never willingly choose to use.
How can I add zoom to my Toolbar? I use different types of zooms depending on what I am doing.
Seems like nobody on earth likes the new DC version. Am I wrong or should I just use Acrobat XI forever and ever.....?

A lot of users prefer the floating Toolbar to gain screen area.
It should be possible to add more options to it, like one can do to the top Toolbar.
The best of both worlds!

There are too many clicks to customize.
Let me create a custom interface like InDesign and Photoshop do.
Allow EASILY (one-click) hiding the menu items I never use - Share Files, Feedback, Help, Notifications and Profile. They are in my way and block tools I need access to. I do not want to make the window wider or click Options.
Get rid of this wretched "FEEDBACK" icon, which takes up valuable space. Put it on a menu, not on the menu bar for goodness sake!
Please make it possible to delete all tools on tool bar and customize. It is so inconvenient to have unnecessary tools that just take up crucial space when viewing important projects. The question mark, bell and bubble with ... seem like they were just added. WHY???
There are many, many user comments under the Full Tools, Menu Customisation string. No response from Adobe since 2017!
@Anonymous - Spell Checker is under the Edit menu dropdown
Where is spell checker?
The interface is terrible. I can't find anything or do anything I used to do. I think it was designed for a cell phone. Every icon is so large and the font is so big. And it is trying to create its own "windows" looking box as you save files that I despise. I do what I need to in Acrobat and exit as soon as I can.
This in no way addresses the concern.
To be exact - how do we take the following OFF the toolbar:
The "share" button
The "provide feedback" button
The "Learn Adobe Acrobat Pro" button
The "notifications" button
The "Profile and Settings" button.
The above can (or should) be accessed from the menus - removing them from the toolbar frees up space so that other - more important DOCUMENT options can be visible (and easily accessed).
System options are not required for each document - FOR EXAMPLE: for every time I'd be inclined to use the "provide Feedback" button I'd actually have used the "page up" option - say 10,000 times?
Its great that the Big Blue Button has been made a lot smaller but unless easy and simple access to the tools needed via the tool bad is made available again through complete customisation of the bar productivity is being affected which means when we review our program use and productivity we may have to dump Adobe Pro and look for something that will allow us to do our job efficiently.

Here are the steps to customize toolbar-
1. Right click on the toolbar
2. Click on the tool in the submenu
2. Tool will be added in the toolbar
Let me know if you need any further information.

More toolbar customization please!
I understand "forcing your agenda" on people using the free editions but not on the paying customers. The Pros should be able to modify everything to fit their workflow. Please.
I would like to see the Enlarge (+) and Decrease (-) buttons separately on the tool bar. The extra clicking required to enlarge a document - and hope the cursor doesn't slide off the screen and delete the sizing screen - are too many steps. When I want to enlarge something briefly I'd prefer one click and I'm done! Thanks

Adobe doesn't need to reinvent the wheel. They've created fully customizable interfaces for Photoshop, Illustrator, Indesign and other CC programs. Please build us Acrobat Pro CC 2019 with a similar UI and kill DC once and for all. Or watch all your customers switch to Bluebeam.

@Jeff, most of our staff spent a trial period with Bluebeam. All of those users were sad when the 14 days were over. If you've ever compared other image editing software to Photoshop, you know what I mean. If Acrobat Pro is MS Paint, then Bluebeam is Photoshop.
@Paul O'Brian: We are looking at possibly switching to Bluebeam as well I'm going to look at the trial version and see how it compares. do you like it thus far?
Paul O'Brien commented
This thread helped convinced the mgmt that we should switch to Bluebeam this month. Employees everywhere are shedding metaphorical tears of joy.
