When commenting on files, I frequently switch between "add comment" "replace selected text" "cross out" and other tools. Now that tools are arbitrarily grouped together, it takes wastes time getting to the tool I need, especially if I have a document where I'm making thousands of comments.
Please make the toolbar customizable as the new changes render the program much less functional. I'll be finding a new commenting program if this isn't fixed.
Also, the toolbar should be at the top to make it much easier to reach. Please hire a UX person before making changes in the future.
Yes, please reorganize the tools so that meaningful and user-friendly work with Acrobat is possible again.
I fully agree, we have several hundred people working with the commenting tools at our company, and having the new UI active is a complete waste of productivity. We have recommended to each and every one to deactivate this "New Acrobat Experience", and if this gets mandatory will definitely move away from using Acrobat (Reader and Pro versions) at all.
