Who designed the new interface? Not someone who uses it for office work.
Adobe Pro is for PROFESSIONALS, but the new interface has been designed by some art student with no sense for FUNCTIONALITY. For a desktop/laptop user (most offices): The menus need to be in one/logical place, not distributed in three directions. The buttons need to be larger and legible. The one good new feature is the ability to customize menus. Keep that. Junk everything else and let's go back to getting our work done. We don't need this silliness. As has been said by others, this new interface sucks.

I don't understand why they changed the interface. The previous interface was very easy to understand. This new one looks just terrible and it takes away the whole user friendliness.

Could not agree more!! What happened to the previous version? It's practically impossible to edit files. Changing a background color of a text box is impossible!!! Awafull!!
