"New Acrobat" - Bookmarks, Thumbnails now forced to right side - Why?

Her All,

Any idea why the designers felt the need to swap the sides where tools appear in the "New Acrobat"? I find it very annoying to be working on a large document and having the bookmarks and thumbnails on the right-hand side and there seems to be no way to get it back to the left. 

 

Why is it that companies like Adobe and Microsoft, etc. feel it is a clever idea to force changes on people for no apparent reason. All this does is make the product feel awkward to use and annoy customers. We have been using Acrobat with bookmarks and thumbnails on the left for a long time and it feels unnatural and weird. 

 

I know if we use it long enough, we will get used to it, but why should we have to? I would understand if there were massive productivity gains for sticking with it, but there isn't, it's a forced change for nothing other than some designer thought it looks good.

 

At least give us an option about what side we want tools on. 

 

I hope someone at Adobe reads this and passes on the feedback.

 

Mick

Yes, I know it is part of the "New Acrobat". My point is, why change the sides tools are on? It adds absolutely nothing to the user experience, nor does it increase productivity. All it does is force the user to get used to tools being on the opposite side of the page/doc they are working on.  

 

I do actually like the fresh new look but find it odd we wouldn't be given an option which side we want the tools on.

Do you mean "Disable New Acrobat" option? Yes, but sooner or later I'm sure that option will disappear.
