Did they break the ability to, on a mac, drag the icon of an open pdf to move, copy, attach the file

I just updated Acrobat and ugh they moved everything around. What I immediately went "oh no" about is that there is no icon, or as more recently, ability to click hold on the file name to grab the file and drag it into my email to attach the file.  I would love it if someone told me I was wrong and explained what I'm missing!

 

For the past um... years I've saved my proofs checking the open pdf box, review the pdf and add sign for approval or security features as needed then click and dragged from the file name into the proper email conversation in the companies gmail. I don't know this would work on a Windows OS but it has been a great time saver on my Mac. I do NOT want to click the stupid email icon in the corner to have it open ANOTHER tab of my email in my web browser and attach it to ANOTHER draft out of the current conversation thread.

 

The closest thing I've found so far is that I can right click to get it to pop open ANOTHER finder tab with the location of my proof pdf. At least that is useful even if it is yet one more (previously unnecessary) step.  I've got ADHD and when I get distracted or need to switch clients, I go back through my open finder windows to figure out what I was working on before the job I just editied.  That the new "Adobe preferred" workflow seems to be open more finder or webbrowser tabs that I'll need to remember to also close is really bothering me right now.

I agree with you totally and can't find a solution to have the icons back so you can drag and drop as you used to be able. Closest thing is "right click" -> "Reveal in Finder" but this is only if its saved. If you're opening from your email it won't have that open and then you have to save somewhere to then drag back. Totally changes my (and obviously your) work flow.

I have the same frustration! There's another thread posing this same discussion point. Still no resolution.
