My Adobe Acrobat Reader recently updated (19.008.20071) and has this absurd new setting that automatically opens a pop up note when I highlight something in the text.
I tried to uncheck the "Automatically open comment pop-ups for comments other than notes" box and it DOES NOT WORK even after restarting computer.
I tried to repair the program and not worked even after restarting computer.
The same is happening for underline and other tools that I use frequently.
The only solution that I already have is to use highlight as a quick tool, not in comment tool bar. Then this annoying pop ups just don't show up. But THIS IS FAR NOT an appropriate or final solution.
Moreover, there were also some new bugs when highlighting. Some ghosts images appeared and didn't went way when the screen updated.
That is so pathetic that I can't imagine how can someone that programmed this could put a pop up as default. This program is used by students world wide that have to read hundreds of pdf pages, highlight important parts of it and done! With NO interruption with pop ups in EACH highlight, that covers part of the text that comes next.
I have deadlines to deal with, if you don't correct this problem in maybe 2 days, I guess I must abandone Adobe and try an other app.
Thanks for the attention,
This is the WINNER! Thank you! After I unchecked all the boxes (didn't need them anyway), this worked. Just doing the various check box suggestions inb the earlier comments did not work.
It sure was difficult to find this tip. Virtually no search terms uncovered the solution. Blue popup tips have been showing up all over the place in Acrobat Pro DC (build 19.21.20049.354971), and I don't even use Commenting (ever), much less have it open. Thank you, aguilayserpiente! I agree with your frustration over Adobe's presumptions, though it is far easier to catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.
Thanks! and you're right 🙂
