This monstrosity is unusable garbage
I use Adobe Pro at work. I comment and mark up blueprints for parts in the automotive industry. The update moving the menu items to a side panel was completely needless, and as you did so you removed features or hid them to where they were effectively removed. I can add text but can I change the font or color? Maybe. Can't find it though. Custom stamps to add? Good luck finding them, and when you do get your clicking finger ready. This thing is awful!

I agree with everyone - new update is radically different and significantly slows my work productivity as I need to re-learn how to find & use all the tools I've been using for years.

Your new version (2023.003) is just TERRIBLE. WHY change something that was working well before, and that everyone just KNEW how to use? WHY? What is the purpose of changing the interface just for the change. It is TERRIBLE. It is also very BUGGY, and freezes constantly. WHY purposefully make our lives harder?
