    "In continuation of my December 2020 comment, I am in favor of multiple tool bars, but I have worked around in a different way. In white area of toolbar, right click, in drop down list click customize quick tools. Select a feature you want, and add using +. On the tool bar ... when clicked shows your selected features. Clicking a feature will bring up corresponding tool bar for use. it would be nice to have customized tool bar, but this is better than nothing. I am not cheering Adobe for making us look for work around, but we have to adapt what we got."

    Yes - you are correct - however the main problem is that the "share" button, the "provide feedback" button, the "help" button, the "notifications" and the "profile and settings" button CANNOT be hidden.

    What's worse - adobe chooses not to refer to these as being "in" the toolbar - so if you ask how to get these off - they simply refer you to the process you state - which is of corse not to address the issue at all.

    If we could "hide" these 5 fu<k!ng useless buttons, Adobe would be far more user-friendly - and able to share a screen with other applications without hiding the toolbar option that we DO use......

    ... but as adobe is full of non-thinking half-wits who blatantly CHOOSE to ignore simple customer comments and feedback - we are stuck with whatever some incompetant has decided we HAVE to pretend is a "feature"..........

    There is also the added problems of people using the forms differently than how you want them to.

    For instance - I use Acrobat to draw up forms to get information from clients.

    I prefer that my client email these completed forms back to me - not through adobe cloud or google cloud or whatever - I need a direct record of communications with my clients (as stipulated by Law in my industry) and email is the best way to do this.

    However the "share" button is unfortunately visible on EVERY document.
    ...meaning i very opten have to get them to send it to me again.

    If I'm not going to use something, or if I do not want "features" used - I should be able to hide them.

    It just is NOT a hard ask.
    It just is NOT a hard thing to make them "hide-able"
    It WAS a stupid decision to make them "un-hide-able"

    The DESIGN FAULT where the user has no ability to REMOVE the following "garbage icons":

    the "share" button,
    the "feedback" button,
    the "learn adobe" button,
    the "notifications" button and
    the "Profile/settings" button.

    This is regardless whether these icons are big and blue or smaller and grey.

    It should not be "confusing" or need explanation -
    Making an icon smaller and/or changing it's colour does NOT REMOVE it.
    Making an icon smaller and/or changing it's colour does NOT RESOLVE this design fault.

    Doing nothing, but saying that you did, does not magically make something happen.

    Yes, would be great if the main toolbar allows hiding of Home, Tools, Document, Share, Provide feedback, Help, Notifications buttons (that's 7 buttons I almost never used). to have more space for the tools. I wish it didn't hide the zoom buttons and zoom number dropdown as the window gets smaller (I often work with multiple windows next to each other). Yes, the other (hovering) toolbar has that function, but I don't like it hiding my document, and appearing and disappearing.


    Adobe seem to think you are not allowed to use any other application while you have "their's open......

    What contempt.
    It does NOT address the topic.

    The topic is to be able to remove "share", "feedback", "Learn Adobe", "Notifications" and "Profile and settings" if we wish to.

    These (NEVER USED) options use up too much space and DO NOT BELONG where they are.

    Repeatedly telling us about other things simply show a complete lack of professionalism at best.
