STOP WITH ALL THE UNECESSARY CHANGES!!
For hecks sake... what bright spark decided to change to everything on the user screen in Acrobat . Talk about pulling up a workflow with this sort of change! Do you realise what this does to entire organisations. I should be billing you for lost productivity due to this rubbish.
There are things everywhere. Left Right, a fixed panel on the left I can't seem to get rid of and all this right in the middle of a major multi million dollar event planning and roll out.
At least when you bought software outright you knew when you sat down each morning things would just work. Now from one day to the next with all these ridiculous and continuous updates thrust upon us you are making all your users lives more difficult.
Why not simply launch updates - that are actually thoroughly tested before posting - every 6 months. I'm not paid to do your testing. Stop being lazy and expecting your customers to highlight where all the issues are. Why not have a Beta testing subscription to people who use and have time to muck about with this stuff, whereby you reduce their monthly subscriptions to half in exchange for the knowledge and proofing of your software.

Hi, Thank you for your insightful comments. We're always looking for ways to improve Acrobat, so we value the time and effort you took to provide us with your comment.
The Quick tools bar on the left is to provide easy access to tools. Additionally, you can add more tools by customizing it. You will soon be able to drag the floating quick tools bar anywhere within the viewer and place it where ever you want.
We have done extensive research, testing, and iterative refinement to the new layout. In the enhanced version, we've maintained a keen awareness of the tools our users are accustomed to. These tools retain their familiar functionalities and workflows designed to work as seamlessly as they did in the older version.
We recognize that the new Acrobat represents a significant shift, but we hope that as you become accustomed to the new interface, you will be able to use Acrobat more effectively and get more out of it.
Please be assured that we have been actively considering the suggestions made by this community and will implement them as soon as possible into our forthcoming versions.
Do look forward to our upcoming releases!
