Thanks in advance for any support.
I had Adobe Acrobat Pro installed on my old work laptop last year, and it looked like the first attached image, called old version. It looks more like your traditional installed program with the menu bar.
My IT department* just installed Adobe Acrobat Pro on my new laptop, and it looks like this, see image attached called new version. This gives more of an online vibe which I'm not keen on, and no menu bar.
Is this how it should be? Did Adobe redesign it? I preferred the old version. Maybe people familiar with the 'new version' can tell me if this is a good thing and I just need to get used to this drastic new layout. Am I missing any features from the old version?
Many thanks in advance for any help that can be affored to me.
*I'm asking this forum because I don't think my IT department knows much about Adobe Acrobat, only how to install the programme so they won't be able to answer my query.
You can switch to the old version:
How rude of me not to reply, many thanks for your help with this, much appreciated. Paul.
Thank you thank you! the new layout had me totally lost!!!
I agree, thanks and I also was lost with the new layout!
You just saved my sanity - at least for today 🙂 Much appreciated advice!
Thank you bro. It ws a great help. I log in to adobe after years to say thanks to you .
Thank you so much Bernd Alheit for your answer. I followed your instruction, and at the touch of a button I disabled the new version. Now I am back in business working efficiently in Adobe Acrobat Pro old version, and not having to struggle to get to grips with the new version. I am very grateful to you.
OMG you are a life saver!
Life saver! Our entire staff thanks you!!
Not all heroes wear capes.. thank you SO much. The new layout was doing my head in.
life saver!!! thank you so much
Thank you, Berndt! I have spent 20 minutes trying to figure this out. I HATE the new UI! Adobe, I'll be happy to join your next beta program!
Thank you so very much!! Can't stand the new look! It is not intuitive at all.
Thank you this was very helpful.
The new layout is absolutely horrible and labor intensive trying to use anything. Thank goodness there is a disable button to bring back the old User Friendly layout where averything is available in front of you and customizable. The new layout makes no sense.
Adobe, leave what works well alone.
it is just so horrible
I recently started using Adobe Acrobat, and my layout was the new layout since it was recently installed. After using it for a while... I needed an IT manager to change something with the software. The IT manager took remote desktop control of my screen, opened up Adobe Acrobat, changed it to the old layout before doing software changes, and then finished doing the software changes he needed to do for me. And I thought, "Disable new Acrobat?" And so I tried out the old layout (which I've never seen before). And I liked it soooooo much more than the previous layout I had been using till that point! Even though I began using Adobe Acrobat with the new layout, I still liked the old layout way better!
Thank goodness someone asked this question! It was driving me insane. Feels like everything is completely backwards and so lost on where everything is.
Adobe, here's an idea. If you are goingt to change the layout of your program, how about adding in a feature that allows us to move the tool bars and such around so that each user can set it up the way we like it. Being a right handed person, the layout makes it completely uncomfortable and like I should be using my left hand to control my mouse. Completely counter-intuitive.
I'm so glad you asked this question. I had been persevering, trying to get used to the new format but it's just horrid. I'm so glad that you can revert to the old format.
I agree as well. This is a horrible design, and thank God you can go back to the orginial GUI. Please keep this layout option forever. Or atleast have a layout section that user's can switch from. For example, the old layout, new layout, and future new layout. Thanks!!
Just here to say the new version is absolutely awful.
