Can you imagine if other crazy application developers started stacking other sidebars alongside the windows scroll bar because they thought their toolbars were most important? You'd really have to be careful while doing simple operations like scrolling. Evidently Acrobat thinks they are the most important, and doesn't listen to simple, obvious, and clearly helpful suggestions on product improvement!
try67, that option, to disable-right-hand-pane-in-acrobat-reader, is not available on my Acrobat 2017 Professional version. The problem, however, is the placement of the collapsed tools selection bar immediately next to the scroll bar, instead of across the top, or a hidden preference, that most other bars, including toolbars, have as a feature. The position of the tools selection bar is too prone to a user accidentally selecting it while trying to scroll. It is clearly visible as TOOLS in the header "ribbon" selection bar at the top of the screen. I really do not need the duplicative tools selection toolbar on the right odf the screen. Duplicative, irritating, and not useful.
I am using 2017 Release (Classic) Version 2017.011.3066. I know how and can collapse the tools pane, but the tools pane selector bar is adjacent to the scroll bar. When a use tries to scroll in a document, the tools pane opens too often because the tools pane selector bar is adjacent to the scroll bar, in a position completely unique to all Windows-based applications. It is too easy to accidentally select the tool pane selector bar instead of the scroll bar.Anonymous shared this idea ·
