make adobe reader automatically start in comment mode

I mark many students' pdf scripts in a day.

For every file I open, I have to tell Reader to open the wide comment pane and click on the comment icon in an otherwise empty (space consuming) task bar.

How do I open, automatically, a pdf file without the comment pane and the task bar but with the commenting function activated?  And reverse the perverse change to make ESC destroy my comment.

Do the people who continually make so-called "improvements" never consider the damage they are wreaking?

Hi @CVHManchester 

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble caused.

How do I open, automatically, a pdf file without the comment pane and the task bar but with the commenting function activated?  And reverse the perverse change to make ESC destroy my comment.

 

To close the comment pane permanently, you can change the following preferences setting under commenting.

Acrobat>Edit>Preferences>Commenting> change setting under Viewing Comments>OK

About the second part, the taskbar but the commenting function activated is something not possible.

 

Thanks,

Akanchha
