Update causes inefficient editing
The new update created inefficiencies for those of us up primarily use Adobe Reader for notating edits. The old tools allowed for highlight-and-type or click-and-type text replacement or insertion and the new version makes you select the tool and then the text/placement EACH time.
The "replace text" tool isn't even in the quick tools when text is initially highlighted. Personally, I'm very unhappy with the commenting updates and think the old functionality was MUCH better.
I could not agree more with you.
We're employing more than a hundred freelance editors who rely on the commenting tools for annotating text in our projects, and the new UI is much worse especially regarding text replacement and insertion. This is an efficiency killer for everyone who uses the commenting tools even in a semi-professional way.
