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?

Speaking of simps...

It's YOU'RE welcome, not your welcome.

In my years of experience as an editor for a Chicago publishing house, I've found that most simps have, at best, a tenuous grasp of the concept of written communication.

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.

The same thing happened in Dreamweaver and I just uninstalled it. I might need to do the same for Acrobat because this is so frustrating and it seems like Adobe never listens to customer feedback.

Does anyone know of an alternative PDF reader?

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.

For anyone who finds this via google this solution still seems to be working as of 12/14/2023.

Adobe you should be ashamed, this has been an ongoing problem for YEARS now.

I found this after being annoyed by the constant popups. I've used adobe acrobat professionally for 10-20 years and personally for longer.


If Adobe doesn't stop being anti-consumer, it's users who are not just home users but also enterprise users will complain enough to their IT team that they'll consider competitive products. Already, I've seen one alternative product mentioned and some users have that software installed where I work. In my company we've discussed moving to a single product solution company wide and Adobe has been the common solution but it's not guaranteed especially if they don't listen to their user base. This would represent 500+ users. Acrobat is one piece of the software package but it may be a matter of time as people wake up to the lack of support and anti-consumer decisions being made. A company of my size has a marketing department with all of the software included with that. While this may seem like a small drop in the overall bucket, I can imagine many other businesses will follow suit when public opinion becomes more commonplace with a negative tone.


As for, gregg4gia : you're responding to a frustrated user who is sick and tired of dumb decisions being made with UI by Adobe. This is a support community not an argument community. Let's try to keep on track. If someone is venting/ranting but on topic, just ignore it. There's no reason to draw away from the argument and muddy the waters with unhelpful commentary. If it offends you enough you can always report the comment.

Problem Solved:
Our company solved the annoying Blue Bubble Tip problem by switching to Bluebeam Revu. As Adobe licenses expire, we migrate those employees to Bluebeam Revu. Solely because of this one aggravating "feature" we are heading elsewhere. Good job Adobe.

I just canceled my acrobat subscription. Between the annoying pop ups and a program that lags at every pdf I open, sometimes for 4-5 minutes, I've had enough. I have access to Revu through work and I plan to use that for the forseeable future. Adios Acrobat.
