Can't Disable Tabs in New Acrobat

I'm using the new Acrobat and I don't see the option to open documents in separate windows, instead of tabs, in the Preferences > General section.

Am I missing something?

Hi @nur development 

 

Thanks for reaching out. 

The correct way of changing the document opening setting is to change Acrobat's preference setting. 

What all options do you see under Edit>Preferences>General? Can you share the screenshot of the same?

Isn't it Open documents as new Tabs in the same window available there? If yes, it needs to be unchecked.

You can also navigate Acrobat>Windows>Cascade for a one-time view

 

Thanks,

Akanchha

Can you drag the tabs out of the window?

Yes. But no option to disable as a default.

Can you go to Help > About and give us a screenshot with your version? Also, what is your OS and version?

Thanks for confirming that @nur development 

What if when you disable the new user interface, do you get the option back?

I would rather not switch the interface, but it was working in the old interface.

I had this exact same problem, and the only way to fix it was to disable the new interface. So Adobe is now hosting webpages telling us to unclick the "Open Documents As New Tabs In The Same Window" option, despite the fact that this option no longer exists - e.g. https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/viewing-pdfs-viewing-preferences.html.

 

Can you confirm, at least, that the option to disable the new version will remain in place going forward? I've been using Acrobat for >25 years, I rely on it daily, and the new interface is frustrating and unintuitive.

None of us can confirm Adobe's plans.
