Ability to add more toolbars
It was very cool in early versions that it was possible to add more toolbars. Its annoying that the space is limited for the extra tools I want to add into the tool bar.
I would like to ask for adding the ability to add a new-line/toolbar so all the tools I add can be visible without need to expand a menu by clicking on the dots at the right side.

DC team - do you ever do UX testing? If not, contact me. I have a lab with all the equipment. I'll even do it for free.
Why would we need to compromise? Computers, since like 1970, have been able to have different settings for different users. Photoshop and Illustrator have fabulous UIs. Acrobat used to work fine. Now it is like they really, really, really want to **** of power users. I mean, PitStop pro, which is basically just a menu add on, costs all most as much as the entire Creative Cloud just so people can use the **** program. I keep getting stupid new features like signing and text recognition, which I don't need. I just need menus that work and stay where I put them.

A compromise would be to add … - three dots in primary tool bar to add the feature we want. This is important when using 13” screen, or split screen. Similarly, ability to move documents with a dialog box showing original page number and desired or update page number would be extremely helpful for large number of pages. This will allow us to see the page being moved correctly. This is not the case with organize pages or scrolling. Scrolling helps, but on extended scroll freeze is experienced. All these features discontinued after acrobat xi. We may have to explore other options after being loyal from version iv.
I know I'm late to the problem, however I'm updating from Pro XI which is no longer supported, to pro DC.
I use a number of tools, and I desperately wish to save time by having two rows of toolbars instead of being limited to just one.
as I've see posts on this issue going back several years, isn't there anyone at Adobe who can help us?
Just went across to acrobat 2020 Pro and can see myself stepping back 70%in productivity due to the insane toolbar Issue. This issue seems to have been going on for years.
If i dont get a positive response from adobe im going back to a version that supported double toolbars, coloured and NOT RIDICULOUSLY LARGE !@!!!
OMG, I just got Pro DC. Please please please ... can we have at least two rows of toolbars? I cannot customize with these super huge icons. I am used to have EVERYTHING I need on the two top rows. Why change that?
Please enable us to organize the toolbars in two rows.
One row is disgusting.

Toolbar Icons are insanely large. Unable to modify or alter in any way (I've reviewed forums for info, and when I follow steps in "Preferences>General>Scale for screen resolution..." there are no options for me on any of my Windows 10 machines. It's like, cartoonishly large and very distracting.
this is ridiculous, I wont spend hours to customize this **** new interface.
i'm back to acrobat pro 9.

To the team and responsible who validated that – those who decided to condense the tools bar display – I really don't understand such decision – with a so massive "TOOLS" tab to scroll as an alternative. Making client contributing to the cloud service does cannot be imposed to him/her to have a big blue "sharing" button that wipes out all other legitimate tools to have their display at front of the tool bar, at their will. In my opinion this is too much big TAB... for too less ergonomy at the end.

I agree! Let me customize my preferences to show two rows of tools so I can customize what I want at my fingertips!
I sure was hoping to find a solution to this very issue. The amount of extra time I have to spend on every single click vs only one click. It's absolutely insane.
I very much agree with this, and came to give feedback just for this reason. Even allowing one toolbar to span multiple rows (so that you can still find everything quickly when in a smaller window) would be great.
I had a dream that I came to work and when I opened Acrobat, ALL my old toolbars were back!! I almost started crying I was so happy!!!
Then I woke up and realized it was just a dream, and that I only have one row of tool bars, and the rest just collapse into three dots.
Then I really started crying!!!
Why is the toolbars functionality so bad in Acrobat DC??? I have to click all over the place just to get basic things done. Big Step BACKWARDS!!
WOW - I just had an update to pro 2017 and i'm thinking 'where is everything'. you're all voicing problems that I have come across. a big step backwards from 2010 in some very basic areas. my productivity has dropped drastically. what took 1 click to accomplish now takes 3-4 clicks

1. Reduce icon size in tool bar by 50%
2. Enable scrolling by default and not the single page view.
@ DavidDavies: You are correct; those three options are available, however, the little icon which is listed under "File, Open" (Ctrl+O) would be most convenient to be able to swap out for the default Open Icon which only opens the recent files used list. The Ctrl+O option (icon) opens the file explorer, which some may find more convenient, depending on the user's file needs.
I would like to be able to customize the floating toolbar to include page up and down.
Bring the older version toolbars back!!!!!
