Android comment menu

I like to read and mark up PDFs using my tablet (Galaxy Tab S6 Lite, Android 14). Recently, I see that Adobe has "helpfully" put a menu at the bottom of the screen, but actually, each icon brings up a sub-menu for Comment, Highlight, Draw, Text, Fill & sign … (I'm using version 24.5.0.33694.)

 

I frequently switch between the comment, underline, highlight, and drawing tools, so it's a constant annoyance to have to go back and forth between sub-menus to do this. And due to latency, I'm frequently closing the file by accident, since the check mark to exit the sub-menu is right where the exit arrow is.

 

Overall, this makes using Acrobat Reader a frustrating and aggravating experience.

 

Does anyone know how to customize the menu at the bottom of the screen to have just the tools I frequently use and get rid of the sub-menus? 

 

If I can't find a solution to this (or if Adobe doesn't fix this), I'm also open to suggestions of other apps I could use instead.

Hi @Zach31735557pxxf,

 

Hope you are doing well. Thanks for writing in!

 

Would you mind sharing a screen recording video while describing the areas you are referring to?

This will help me take this up with the team for further discussions.

 

Thanks,
Souvik

Hello Souvik,

 

I've attached a recording, but I didn't experience any latency just now. Still, you can see how switching between highlighting and drawing requires going back to different sub-menus by first hitting the check mark in the upper left corner of the screen – where the back arrow is also located, which exits out of the file.
