Permanently hide Navigation Pane
Adobe, please give users the option to permanently hide the Navigation Pane. I have to click the arrow on every single doc I open in order to hide it! Give me a simple option to disable that stupid pane. Do a google search on this and you'll find countless users asking for the same thing...since the last 5 years. Fix it already!

You realize you application completely deadlocks my machine each time I have to open 300 meg 300 page Arch E documents for reviewing our 300,000 sqft building renovations/new buildings. Deadlocks for 10-15 minutes sometimes as you bookmark up/or thumbnail up every stud and wire in a 300,000 square foot building, each light, each sprinkler head, each motor, each receptacle, each datajack, each ceiling tile, each a/c register and return grill, each light switch, each panelboard, each smoke detector, each pull station, each pipe, each sink, each toilet, each door, EVERY SINGLE PIECE OF A 200-300,000 SQFT BUILDING. Why this feature was added is ridiculous, you obviously couldn't care less of the poor professionals using your software as you couldn't care less to allow us to simply completely disable the navigation pane. The best part is when I open the wrong volume of a 3-4 part set of 3-500 meg pdfs and find I need to deadlock the machine again to open the right 300 page volume, because of course it takes 1000 pages of 3'x4' drawings to document a building these days. So it appears the permanent fix is to stop using your software. I'm ok with that. It is fortunate for us the PDF is not owned by Adobe, but is instead a standardized format.
Every option I have seen to permanently hide the navigation pane has been by document. I would like this pane to remain closed regardless of whether the document has bookmarks or not. I do not want to click on the arrow for each and every time I open a document. This is not practical when opening/closing 50-100 documents per session. I need to see the entire document and not what Adobe thinks is important to them.

I also hate this. I stopped using Acrobat at home because of this. I have asked at work if we can find an alternate to Acrobat. Stop trying to fix something that was never broken.
