Can't disable annoying tips and tricks popups
Yeah, so you know those "helpful" tips that pop up in little blue boxes when you start the program? Those are annoying. There is nothing in Adobe Acrobat that is not too straightforward to understand, and I do not need help using the program. Please add an option to disable these.
Like Andy K said, I've been getting those too lately. One of the few other things I do with this hold-holding piece of garbage is combine files, I definitely don't need to be made ANY more aware of the feature. It keeps on coming back, every time I open Acrobat. Trying to find a code reference? "Did you know you can combine files?" Trying to print something? Covers the ******' print box.
I already paid for the **** product, y'know? You don't need to sell me anything else.
I think what irritates me the most is that there's no setting to stop this, the only (tentative) solution is a registry modification that I can't even use on a company computer, because the entries are stored somewhere that requires administrative credentials.

For the last few days whenever I open a pdf I get interrupted by a large window inviting be to learn about combining PDFs. WTF? There needs to be an opt-in for this kind of intrusion.
This unwanted in-app advertising/viral activity is intrusive, unwanted and outrageous for a paid piece of software.
Yes, yes, yes! Please add an option to disable this. I really need to concentrate when I'm working and these blue popups tips are about as disruptive as a ringing phone when I'm correcting texts. Who in the world would deem it a good idea to interrupt people while they're working on documents?
I third it. I know how to use Acrobat, I don't need a latter-day Clippy saying "This looks like a form!" and then covering the tools I actually need to get to, or pointing out the neuron-meltingly obvious, like "Click here to add text" because I guarantee you, I know where that icon is, and even if I didn't, it already says "Add Text" next to it.
PLEASE give us a disable option.

Is it my imagination, or have these popups become =more= common of late?
Really, truly, seriously Mr and Ms Adobe, PLEASE add a "disable" option.
I understand that they may indeed be helpful for new users, but they're <expletive deleted> bothersome impediments to the workflow of those of us who have been using Acrobat since—let me see—version 4!

I heartily second this request. I have been using Adobe Acrobat for years, I do not need help with it.
