I disagree with removing the side toolbar.... but I agree if there are scroll bar issues.
My main issue.... with the new Wide Screen Display Monitors.... there is more room on the sides of the monitor for this toolbar.... and Less room at the top and bottom of the Monitor.
I just upgraded from Pro XI to Pro DC 2017.... The toolbar is on the right... but the functions for the toolbar are in a ribbon across the top. You have to click in two different places to use the function.
Whereas.... in the old Pro XI.... the toolbar on the right side had Dropdown arrows to get to the Functions of the toolbars.
With this ribbon across the top... it takes up room at the top and bottom and reduces the document window viewing size.

Totally agree!!!! Corporate user here. I use Acrobat Pro to automatically place Watermarks on PDF files generated from AutoCAD drawings. Just got a new computer and had to upgrade from AB Pro XI to AB Pro DC 2017.
I hate the toolbars in Pro DC. In the old XI... the toolbars and their functions were nicely placed down the right had side... where you could expand to the functions with dropdown arrow.
Now... the toolbar is still on the right hand side... but the functions are across the top of the page on a ribbon. Now to use them... you have to go from one location to another to click on features... whereas before... they were right there together.
Also... with the new age of Wide Screen Monitors.... You have tons of room on the sides of the screen... and nothing on the top and bottom. Why would they move stuff to the top or bottom of the screen... when viewing your document size is reduced by ribbons.
Just common sense tells you to use the side of the monitors for these types of things.
Why do these developers thing their improvements help functionality. When you have a good thing going... leave it alone!!!!!!!!!
