Please provide a Preference to condense the Comments panel
I often deal with PDFs with hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of edits. The Comments panel in Acrobat DC includes way too much blank space, including a title line ("Strikethrough Text", "Highlighted Text", etc.) and needlessly provides a default "Type your reply..." area for every comment. This isn't Facebook (meaning, replies aren't always necessary). Please provide preferences that allow comments to appear in more compact form, as they did with Acrobat X or Acrobat 11.

Yes, please! I'm a book editor and proofreader, and when you get more than a few comments (always; like the OP, in my documents it's often in the high hundreds or into the thousands), dealing with all that extra junk in the comments pane is tedious. At least give us some control over what shows and what doesn't. (And those page number dividers are also kind of useless, given that when you have front matter and restart the page numbering on the first page of the guts of the book, they never match the actual page number.)

I wish I could go back to the previous version for the same reason as Kelly Vaughn, and because all the text and icons on the screen are so large. 'Sup wit dat?

YES!! I use Acrobat 9 every day still because the comments pane is so much more compact.
