I have this issue too! It's infuriating. Another duplicative step to perform the same task I was able to perform in older versions of acrobat with ease. On previous versions you just hit the email icon and a new message in Mac Mail or Outlook (depending on your configuration) automatically opened and was ready to send.
Now a toolbar opens, I have to select an option, and then click something else. Dumb dumb dumb and likely just another douchey ploy to ****** folks into sending via Adobe's cloud even though that's so completely unnecessary and is a security issue in some cases. One of many interface downgrades from older versions.
The other issue is that in older versions you could tell acrobat that you wanted new docs to open with the pages pane (on the left) open by default. We do a lot in that pane and now it's another 2? 3? clicks every damned time one opens or re-opens a document. Another frustrating time sink. One really wonders who Adobe has in mind when they make these changes. My guess is the cloud brats who don't actually do any work using these products. Not actual admins and paralegals who have to live with this abject annoyance on an hour to hour basis.
Please consider actual workflows and correct these mis-steps in a future release.
We are really trying to switch to Bluebeam because of this.
