Viewing Comments and Bookmarks Simultaneously

I'm a student and I previously used Adobe Creative Cloud through my university. They discontinued this service this year, so I decided to use Adobe's student discounts to maintain creative cloud because I really do love the tools it offers. However, upon installation of the updated Adobe Acrobat Pro, I can no longer view bookmarks and comments at the same time. I used to see Bookmarks on the left of the application, the document in the middle, and then comments on the right. This was particularly useful for me as I often read multi-chapter books that I used the bookmarks for and then annotate with the comments. Now, my new version only displays bookmarks and comments on the right of the screen. There's no option to see them both simultaneously, which makes navigating the document quite frustrating. Is there a way to change preferences to allow me to view these the way I want to?

No. To go back to the old UI click the Options button at the top left corner (Windows) or open the View menu (Mac) and select Disable New Acrobat.

I'm not seeing "Disable New Acrobat" as an option.

It doesn't seem to be an issue anymore, but I'm confused as to why. In searching for the "Disable New Acrobat" option, I just opened my acrobat reader app to see if there were differences across the different Adobe apps I use and that one was "normal" (aka old Adobe), but then the app I usually use suddenly reverted without even needing to restart. But I have literally no clue how that happened because I didn't select anything to change. But at the very least I can see bookmarks and comments at the same time now, which is the bare minimum of usefulness and should never be changed.

Im a CPA, I 100% agree, I look at the bookkmarks on the left and the comments on the right.  I also use an add on, tic tie calculate and I need to show the calculation in the comment section on the right and have access to the bookmark to navigate the document and review the calculations.  I cannot work as effeciently if I dont see comments and bookmarks simultaneously.  

I also noticed that it was easier in the previous version to scroll down, up, or zoom in. out.  

I m not sure what problems this new version resolved, but for me, I cannot use it as is.  I m going back to the old version.
