We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
Recently, blue popup "tips" have started to appear in Acrobat. Unless dismissed, they hang around, and do not time out. This is hugely annoying thing for a program to do.
Is there anything I can do to stop them forever?
You can turn them off in preferences.
That doesn't work. I still get these annoying popups! What a waste of time trying to solve this!!!!!!!
Hello, I hate these annoying blue tips that pop up every time I edit a PDF. However, turning off the button in preferences that you show does not stop this from occuring. Is there another solution? Thanks!
I also have this problem. It's so annoying. With every new version Adobe puts new nasty things in the software.
The "General" settings page is now so big that it won't fit the screen of Full HD resolution (24" monitor) anymore.
Thank you for posting!
I did what was suggested but still have these insesant popups every time I open up a PDF.
I have the same problem.
For the record, I recently got a new iMac and did not use Migration Assistant or any other process to transfer my apps and files to the new computer. I installed fresh versions of all my apps, including the Creative Cloud app, which I used to manage installation of my Adobe apps.
One of the first things I did was turn off "Show me messages" as illustrated in the screen shot above.
Contextual tips continue to appear regularly.
When did I set up my new iMac? Five months ago. This is far more than enough time for the app to "settle down" and stop interrupting my workflow.
What is there about the word "Pro" that suggests seasoned users need contant "did you know" or "why don't you try" messages destroying their ability to get real work done?
Please, Adobe, help us. I do love your products, believe it or not. But I don't love this annoyance.
Thank you for listening to this rant.
Doesn't work, so annoying. Please someone figure out how to turn these off.
If you are comfortable with registry edits, you should look at https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/PrefRef/Windows/index.html
Go to Hive --> FeatureLockdown --> Context menus, tips, tools
You'll find the registry setting for disabling the help tips
Remember to always backup our current registry settings before making changes!
Seriously? Edit the registry? That is a horrible solution and just plan laziness from Adobe. Fix the problem and make these annoying tool tips something the user can turn off themselves. For the record, I have unchecked "Show me messages when I launch Adobe Acrobat" and am still getting them.
*turn off themselves from within the application.
Uncheck the box in Prefences/Accessibility/"Enable assistive technology support"
Thanks for the suggestion, kmpowell. I did that eight months ago when I reinstalled macOS and Adobe Acrobat Professional.
Sadly, it did nothing to solve the problem.
Same! I had to send myself a PDF through the Share feature to stop it from appearing everytime I opened up a PDF.
adobe is crap amatuer designers stop DEFAULTING POPUPS IN THE INTERFACE
NO ONE WANTS YOUR TIPS GET A REAL DESIGN JOB
Wow, sc00bz. I can't imagine how meaningful the Adobe developers will find your post.
If anything can make them reconsider their decisions and do what we've all been asking for in this thread, it's statements like yours that will do the trick.
Thanks for your insights, and have a good day.
Your welcome SIMP!
Wow...do you feel better? Do you feel like a big strong man now?
Only teenage incels call people "simp." Plus, you're illiterate.
The "correct answer" is not correct. It does nothing to stop these awful popups. None of the other suggestions work either and I will not be tinkering with my registry over this nonsense. For the love of all that is decent in the world, let me turn these unhelpfull, intrusive and obnoxios popups off.
