This is the worst update
Today's update is horrible -- it's a big, ugly mess. I can't find anything, the icons are tiny and all of my settings are gone. Please change it back and stop resetting settings with each update.
Users -- go to File and then down to "Turn off New Adobe" to get rid of the new, horrible layout
THANK YOU FOR THIS COMMENT!! New interface sucks. Made me so miserable.

Agree with all the others about how unusable this is. Couldn't put the print on the toolbar and it was moved all the way to the right and tiny.
couldn't move the tool shortcuts to the top.
When opening the toolbar and trying to get back from edit so I could see without the boxes, it closed the all tools. Couldn't figure out how to get back to a plain document without doing that.
Please do not force us to the new interface.
Seriously, what were theythinking? UI is awful and they took away basic features (i.e., Alt keys no longer work).
Please don't ever force us to update to this new UI Adobe.
Thank you, good person, for sharing how to turn off this abomination.

We appreciate your valuable feedback. Few notable glitches that caught our attention is Tiny Icons and loss of customization.
You can resize your New Acrobat all at once from Hamburger menu > View > Display Size > Small/Standard/Large.
To retain the customization, Please Hamburger menu > Preferences > Documents > "Restore last view settings when reopening the documents".

We appreciate your valuable feedback! We're always looking for ways to make Acrobat better, and we appreciate the time and effort you have taken to share your feedback with us.
We acknowledge that the new Acrobat represents a notable change, however we hope that as you get familiar with the new interface, you are able to be more productive & get more out of Acrobat.
With the new interface we aim to
1.Provide a simplified viewing experience that helps reduce clutter & optimise it for most used PDF actions that are relevant while viewing a document.
2. Easily allow users to discover PDF tools they need by ensuring tools are intuitively grouped and a click away,
**For example, all tools that allow content, page & file level edits can be found under one action based verb called “Edit”; tools that allow converting files to & from PDFs can be found under “Convert”; tools that allow filling & signing documents or requesting signatures from others under “Sign”.
3. Most importantly, the new interface enables users to effortlessly move between different PDF tools to complete their document related tasks
**For example, someone viewing comments in a PDF should also be able to easily edit the text of it without interrupting their workflow
**A user can seamlessly perform page level edits such as reordering, inserting, extracting, rotating or deleting pages while editing content and/or commenting on the file
We would also like to highlight that we have exhaustively tested these changes with users over the past 12 months, keenly monitoring user behaviour & addressing top user issues before gradually rolling out the new interface to the Acrobat user base
A point to note is that as we made these changes in the interface, we have ensured all tools & features that are currently supported, retain their familiar functionalities and workflows as they did in the previous version. We are proactively addressing any gaps or issues reported by users related to any break in current workflows.
We will follow up on this response with a detailed blog post explaining the changes, a guide to help familiarise you to the new interface, along with regular updates on upcoming changes.
Thank you once again for your feedback, and do look forward to our upcoming releases !
