how to improve adobe acrobat dc
I have been using adobe acrobat pro 9 for over 10 years, and recently I have to switch over to acrobat DC, and find it bizarre.
1. First, the user interface has been completely redesign, not allowing one to switch back to the previous UI.
2. Also, I find the number of key strokes needed to do a simple task, has greatly increase. I do a lot of cut-and-paste with my old acrobat, and it was convenient. With the new DC, after finally figure out how to do it, it involves a lot more key strokes. A regression!
3. The new acrobat does not interface well with other Tex software, like Winedt. One has to close the pdf file generated by Acrobat before
one can run the Tex compiler again. That wasn't the case with the
old Acrobat. In fact, some Tex user community is advocating to stay away from the new Adobe.
While you do strikethrough over any text, you can always click on that annotation and update the comment on the same atrikethrough annot in the popup menu itself.
Let me know for further asks in this

I found another retrogression of the new Adobe Acrobat Pro DC in terms of commenting on a manuscript. Previously, I could insert comment and overstrike with a single key stroke. Now I need two
separate keystrokes: one for overstrike, and the other one for inserting comments.
The new Acrobat DC is definitely less efficient than the old acrobat 9.
I just came across the Discussion group that you shared and seems like updating to the latest version of the Tex and Winedt has solved the problem what user was facing.
Since Tex Winedt is 3rd party which configures to Adobe Acrobat, I request you to kindly share with me some snapshots / Video recording of the exact issue that you get while you use Tex Winedt so that we can then try to simulate the same at our end.
Feel free to share that to me at email@example.com

Do I just post my reply here to Jain?
Now to cut and past, I have to first crop the figue in my pdf file. Then a new pdf file appears, and I have to extract that particular page for which the image is cropped. Then only can I insert it into
other software like Tex. Previously, it was a lot more easier.
You can visit the discussion group below to see problems Tex and Winedt users are having with the new Acrobat.
Thanks for Reaching out to us for your queries.

2) Regarding issues while using Winedt, Can you please share some supporting scripts which you are trying to use in winedt with Acrobat. Since Winedt is a Third Party Entity, It would be highly appreciable if you could please share an Exact Screen Recorded Video of the Steps that you are trying to perform with winedt with the issue of "Closing the file before compilation" .
