Why did you change the tool section, I have to make 3 tomes as many steps now to find all the tools I use to have right on the toolbar?
Allow us to put the tools back on the tool bar without having to click on tools we don't need
You can just add the more frequently tools to the Quick Tools on top. Alternately you can just search for the tool you need in the Search box in Right Hand Panel.
Please let us know if this helps.

Admin: Your "You can 'just' add the more frequently" comment above makes the HUGE assumption that one can find the tools in the first place. I've wasted amazing amounts of time--repeatedly--trying to find tools like, OCR, page view options, highlighting. Eventually I find them, but the user interface in today's Acrobat Pro is the very worst in my 20+ years of using the program.
Why should I have to search? When the XI interface worked fine and is more productive for digital print production. We now edit all pdfs on our one workstation that has XI Pro, and will not be upgrading. In fact the majority vote is to downgrade the one machine that came with DC to XI pro.
