Update Features Optional
I understand that some new features come from users that want these features however making them mandatory for everyone is not great.
It would be great if Adobe got smart about the Updates and had a pop up that could be accessed any time after an update which allowed a user to switch new features either on or off. That way we the user can control how the software works and if done correctly Adobe could build it so they get reports back and even feed back on why something is switched off or on to enhance the software in the future. This would make the users happy and allow Adobe to see how many users adopt some new features, and if the switch on/off should be permanently built into the options in the next release.

Making new features optional would be great! Some new features are not requested by the users, but by an internal development team and are an impedement to a user that has many years of experience with the product - or maybe someone just learned all the steps do do something. The reporting would be great to inform management that a certain feature is widely used or that the man years of coding was a waste. How the good and poor paths were chosen would be valuable to see how the end result happened.
