Hi Peter, I had the same issue as well when I opened pdf drawings from AutoCAD. I solved it by clicking Edit and in the drop down menu click Preferences.In the preferences window unselect Show comments pane when a PDF with comments is opened.

Hi PeterW

 

Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble. As described you want to close the comments bar from opening up everytime you open a PDF file.

 

Are you referring to the comment pane in the right hand of the PDF? If yes, please minimize the comment pane by clicking on the small arrow as shown in the screenshot and then go to Edit (Windows) , Adobe Acrobat (Mac) > Preferences > Documents > Select 'Restore last view setting when re-opening the document' Click OK and check.

Hope this will help, let us know if you are referring to something else.

 

Regards

Amal
