Hi

 

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.

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.

How is this marked as solved? I've tried every suggestion in this thread and they still don't work. A full two years later.

This is still a problem... and none of the accepted suggestions work.

I guess it will never be solved, as it appears to me that Adobe's gonna let Acrobat die. Why? Simple answer: no updates since 1.5 years. The last one is from December of 2020. And it's not like users find no bugs and report. This problem here is called an annoyance and there are at least 5 other threads with the same topic, all being marked as solved. Seems that this very annoyance comes in levels of severity. Yours is the highest, other user have had it solved by the suggestions. For me this also went halfway. Means, messages from Adobe keep popping up randomly, as if these messages have a level of importance and some level even overrides that "Show me..." setting. I find these software concepts of today weird. The overall performance becomes worse and worse (Photoshop 22 takes about 30 seconds to start from SSD on an i5 PC), new versions instead of fixing bugs in the old ones, constantly changing the UI to confuse the users,  bloating software with unnecessary features like "Sharing". 

My worst problem with Acrobat: the DDE doesn't work 3 out of 10 times I export a PDF.

Yes, this is fortunately for me only a minor annoyance, but it's strange
that it they are somehow overriding their own settings with this. I've
considered reinstalling because I've noticed some other issues (like it
takes 30-60 seconds for a file to open if I click on it directly), but I
have better things to do with my time. I completely agree with you, they
keep adding all these features that I'll never use and never fixing the
issues with the current versions. I am very close to just not using it at
all and using reader instead and saving my money.

I gather that as of 2022-10-17 there is no solution other than that we now know the annoying blue popups are called "Contextual Tips." This is so Microsoftian that my head is about to explode.

I have created a Notion page with details on how to diable the Context Tips in the registry. As of 11.11.22 @ 7:23 AM this seems to be working. I know it's not the best workaround, but anything to remove this bubbles is helpful for me.

 

Click Here to check out that notion page.

 

If you have more information on this matter pleae comment on the Notion page itself.
