I open a document this morning and was faced with the new Adobe Acrobat screen.
It FRIGGIN' SUCKS!
The 'old' screen is completely functional for my needs, and works exactly as I need it to. Luckily after a bit of searching, I found an option to switch off the 'new adobe', but when open the program the first thing is another popup asking if I want to try the new Adobe!
How can I stop seeing this popup, and how can I assure I'm not forced in the future to use this program, like an auto update, etc.?
Adobe used to be about supporting people's creativity. Now it's about being flashy and selling us more crap
Adobe, quit trying to sell us crap, and force us to use updates when we don't want to!
its not good... made it harder to use, and buggy... learn from apple.. less changes, more stable
Go to Menu and on the drop down menu there is a "disable new adobe" feature.
THANK YOU! I've been struggling every day since the update. What a dud, truly suprised they considered it an update.
Thank you again.
You are a life saver
Thank god I'm not the only one having this issue and thanks for the resolution. I can't believe they paid people and spent time on making something that worked just fine - and flushed it down the toilet for this new garbage.
stunning how they could mess up their product so badly! I hate it now and wish I had an alternative to Adobe. Unusable
Thank you for the tip turning off the "New Adobe The previous version of Acrobat found to be buggy ("hand" scrolling difficult to select among other anoyances) Found the new version unuseable. The 2 New versions a steep regression. Hard to beleive any beta testing to the general public was prefromed before release.
Perhaps this was designed in a vacuum? This program is unusable.
Have to agree 100%. The new Adobe Acrobate is AWFUL. Did Adobe ever think to try a test run or a Beta so people could give feedback? Or do they just go off half-cocked and decide everyone will love it? I'm also getting ad ppages FORCING me to try Adobe esignatures. This is completely unethical and a huge disappointment from a company I have relied on to be genuine and quality based for a decade. Might have to find an alternative if this is how Adobe does business now. Did they sell to Elon Musk??
Adobe Acrobat Pro is terrible. They charge $19.99 a month and the program keeps getting worse & worse. Every update causes issues and half the time the files you save in Adobe end up corrupted. Used to be a great product but really a flawed program. Go back to the way it was and stop these constant updates and unreliability.
The people who designed the new Acrobat and the people who accept the design have no design intuition. The functionality and availability of the most frequently used tools in Acrobat are a disaster.
