pretty much all other Adobe apps (photoshop, illustrator, indesign, etc.) have menus and panels made for productivity and efficiency. I don't know why Acrobat has always had a cra.ppy UI and never managed to catch up. It's like the developer still sees it primarily as a pdf viewer, and not as a creation tool. The tools menus feel like an afterthought.
A few specific points:
1. As many have noted there is a lot of wasted space for large buttons that are almost never used, while buttons that are more useful are hard to get to. For example I never use the Sign In button, while the Feedback button I may use very rarely. These things should be hidden somewhere in the Help menu, not stuck permanently on the menu bars.
2. The current menu bars have too much empty wasted space around and between the buttons, and the buttons themselves are also too big. More buttons should be able to fit in the available bar space.
3. Additional sub-panels shrink the visible pdf area. For example, when I open Enhance Scans, and then click on Recognize Text (in this file), this creates another thick horizontal bar that has only 4 additional buttons and most of the bar is empty. This added bar shrinks the pdf area, so if I’m using say 'fit page', it makes the page even smaller. Most pdf documents are letter sized and are viewed on a widescreens computer monitor, so there is plenty of unused space on both sides of the document but the vertical space should not be abused like that for extra horizontal bars. These extra panels should go to the unused space on the sides.
The current UI is extremely inefficient.
