Why on earth would you people make such a drastic and unneccary change to the layout, tool bar locations, interface, icon appearance and formatting all at the same time and leave us absolutely no way to custominze or rearrange anything like we could before?!?!?!?!?!?!

This is the most frustrating and worthless update I have ever experiences in nearly 20 years of active use of this product.  It's like you are begging your customers to give up and switch to BlueBeam or some other software that I hate using but might actually hate less than this ridiculous change.  

I am beyond angry at the thoutht of how many hours, days and weeks of productivity I am about to lose at having to figure out how to navigate this garbage.

I found that not too long after posting my rant.  Glad it's an available option!

You must revert to the Classic UI: https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat-discussions/acrobat-2023-how-to-revert-to-classic-gui-user-in...
Consider the new Acrobat as a beta version, many features are missing or half-implemented.

You are right! It's awful. I'm going to try and see where to change it back. I don't seem to have the Hamburger menu that Thom Parker shows in his screenshot.

Thank you for mentioning BlueBeam. I do not understand why a perfectly good softwar/layout went through the most unnecessary changes ever. I keep getting error messages, it took forever to get my attachments to stop becoming links, and the layout is obsurd. ADOBE - LISTEN TO YOUR CUSTOMERS!
