Ideas for the New Design
I want to suggest a couple of tweaks to the new Acrobat UI design that I want to see incorporated soon. First, I would like to see the placements of the tool and sidebars reversed; as an English language user, I feel it is more intuitive to make the most frequently used options on the sidebar near the beginning of the document, on the left side of the screen. Secondly, I would love to see the bug altering my preferences for documents every time I close the app and launch it again removed. It is very frustrating in light of how efficient the older version of Acrobat was at retaining my preferences every time I used the app. Finally, I want to express my appreciation for the team behind the new design and clarify that all my suggestions are not meant as personal attacks on their persons or their hard work.

We appreciate your valuable feedback!
We acknowledge that the new Acrobat represents a notable change, however we hope that as you get familiar with the new interface, you can be more productive & get more out of Acrobat.
Keeping in mind the user’s tendency to scan items from left to right, we positioned the megaverbs and all PDF-related tools in the actionable area towards the left side of the document, and grouped supporting tools such as navigation, zoom controls, page information, and comments to the right. This allows us to be flexible with our framework to create different experiences on various screens
Moreover, you can take help of below documents in order to better understand & navigate through the new UI
Additionally, can you please point out which Preferences are you facing issue with in the New UI and we will look into that.
Thank you once again for your feedback, and do look forward to our upcoming releases !
