    This was to be expected, Denny.

    Adobe has long turned into a company akin to Boeing, where the only thing that matters is pleasing shareholders instead of working on the product.

    On the other hand, I must say that professionals who to this day still cling to Adobe Acrobat, which has long been degenerating into a disaster, are essentially getting what they deserve.

    The dramatic decline of Adobe Acrobat was obvious ever since Acrobat DC was introduced about a decade ago. Refer to this thread for insight: https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/acrobat-dc-so-horrible-it-s-making-me-want-to-cry/m-p/7112360

    Even back then, Adobe blatantly ignored the disastrous backlash from the professional community and simply continued on their path to turn Acrobat into a ridiculous kindergarten toy.

    So move on, everybody. Nothing to see here anymore. This is flogging a dead horse.

    Guys. That's it. This abomination will never be fixed. Even if the user interface were improved or restored (which it won't), the underlying PDF engine is utterly screwed up, full of bugs and unbearably slow, and has been so for a decade.

    It's over, move on everybody.

    If you search a little, you can even find an older version of Adobe Acrobat Professional that Adobe themselves officially have made available for download free of charge.

    This is a beautifully stable version with normal menus, low memory requirements and high performance, coded by great people who have long since left Adobe and been replaced by jerks from kindergarten.

    I quit using it 10 years ago after this debacle:

    I'm really only here for the spectacle. Sorry to the millions of users who have not yet been able to switch and have to put up with this 𝗗ismal 𝗖rap software every day.

    Yes, unfortunately you will not be able to use the world's best PDF editor if you are stuck on a Mac.

    We can forget that Adobe will be listening to its users, and that things might change one day again for the better. It's too late, no one from the original team that once made Acrobat great is still with them.

    Management is obviously imbecile, product managers and UI designers are morons, as everyone can see by looking at this software.

    Adobe has been following this aberration for almost a decade now, there is no turning back anymore. https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/acrobat-dc-so-horrible-it-s-making-me-want-to-cry/m-p/7112345

    It is time for everyone to move on.

    There is, for example, a company in Canada that has been making the best PDF editor in the world for decades, that is light years ahead in terms of speed, features, ease of use and user interface. And costs about one fifth of Adobe Acrobat "𝗗isastrous 𝗖rap" Plonkfessional. Playdoughial. Faux-passional.

    Everybody realize how even the support has given up on this thread that has hundreds of voices and thousands of views?

    And it's the same with countless similar threads about the abysmal UI and dreadful performance of Acrobat:

    https://bit.ly/Acrobat-Uservoice-Interface
    (that's a short link to the corresponding search result in this forum)

    This also happened almost a decade ago, when the unstoppable, dreadful demise of Adobe Acrobat began with the introduction of the Adobe "𝗗𝗶𝘀𝗺𝗮𝗹 𝗖𝗿𝗮𝗽" DC version:

    Exactly Richard. In this universe, things will continue to only get worse with Adobe Acrobat, as they have for almost a decade now.

    Everyone, don't waste your time trying to get heard here.

    It's over, people. Move on.

    @all, be prepared that the improvement of the user interface will NEVER happen.

    Adobe will inevitably continue to totally and utterly 𝘀𝗰𝗿𝗲𝘄 Acrobat (although hardly imaginable, but wait and see for yourself).

    So, not much to see here for the next 50 years.

    Anyone looking for the world's best PDF software for professionals, look no further than to Tracker Software in Canada.

    In the meantime, lots of entertaining reading material here from thousands of users hating the abysmal childish slow buggy rubbish interface of Adobe Acrobat:

    Yes, and for all the many more years it will take Adobe NOT to fix this, but instead go out of business, you can read the below linked thread for some entertainment. That thread is almost ten years old, and things have only gotten much worse since then, although at the time this was hardly imaginable.

    https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/acrobat-dc-so-horrible-it-s-making-me-want-to-cry/m-p/7112345

    ...and the hundreds of entries here at Uservoice about "Fix the childish ridiculous unusable slow buggy abysmal user interface":

    Folks, none of this will happen because Adobe's shareholders have decided to squeeze maximum money out of every Adobe Reader user.

    That's why each of the estimated 2 billion users of Adobe Reader secretly gets an almost complete version of Adobe Acrobat DC installed, so that they can be constantly bombarded with ads in order to update to Pro at the touch of a button.

    The greedy shareholders of Adobe have done a few lines of math and got a staggering billion dollar sign in their eyes after fantasizing that X percent of the hundreds of millions Average Joes and Plain Janes who use Adobe Reader to read their eBay invoices could be persuaded to subscribe to Pro.

    As Gary Chrysler insightfully wrote elsewhere:

    "Who owns majority of Adobe? This is absolutely crazy! No humans!!!!!
    Largest shareholders include Vanguard Group Inc, BlackRock Inc, State Street Corp, VTSMX - Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund Investor Shares, VFINX - Vanguard 500 Index Fund Investor Shares, Morgan Stanley, Fmr Llc, Geode Capital Management, Llc, Jpmorgan Chase & Co, and Invesco Qqq Trust, Series 1."

    We can all move on, there will be nothing more to see here.
