Hi,

Adobe has made a new look for Acrobat. And now I need the undo button on the Ribbon.

The only way I can is ctrl+z (but it is a touch screen I have without a keyboard.)

and On the menu: Menu > Undo, redo & more > Undo.

Please help me to get the button back in the new Adobe look.

So what you are saying is that, instead of having that one button we could quickly click to undo, we now have to click a menu, then click on the sub menu , then click on the approriate selection. well...that doesn't seem user friendly at all.  ???

Not understanding this logic at all...

Hi All!

 

We appreciate your valuable feedback! We're always looking for ways to make Acrobat better, and we appreciate the time and effort you have taken to share your feedback with us.

We acknowledge that the new Acrobat represents a notable change, however we hope that as you get familiar with the new interface, you are able to be more productive & get more out of Acrobat. With the new interface, we aim to:

 

  1. Provide a simplified viewing experience that helps reduce clutter & optimise it for most used PDF actions that are relevant while viewing a document.
  2. Easily allow users to discover PDF tools they need by ensuring tools are intuitively grouped and a click away,
    • For example, all tools that allow content, page & file level edits can be found under one action-based verb called “Edit”; tools that allow converting files to & from PDFs can be found under “Convert”; tools that allow filling & signing documents or requesting signatures from others under “Sign”.
  3. Most importantly, the new interface enables users to effortlessly move between different PDF tools to complete their document related tasks.
  • For example, someone viewing comments in a PDF should also be able to easily edit the text of it without interrupting their workflow.
  • A user can seamlessly perform page level edits such as reordering, inserting, extracting, rotating or deleting pages while editing content and/or commenting on the file.

 

Rest assured, we have been actively listening to the feedback from this community to swiftly incorporate them into our upcoming releases, few of which are as below: 

 

1.    Lack of an ability to customise the user interface.

  • Users will soon be able to drag the floating quick tools bar anywhere within the viewer to prevent overlap with the top left of the document.
  • Ability to pin commonly used tools for easy access

2.    Discoverability of certain top user actions & tools

  • Easy access to undo & redo on the top bar.
  • Easy access to all page display, navigation & zoom tools such as 2 page view, 2 page with scrolling, marquee & dynamic zoom etc, from the bottom right menu.
  • Improved discovery of common file level actions such as Save As, Print, Protect using password from the Menu.

3.    Bugs, performance & stability issues:

  • Fixed several crashers and bugs, and continue to address these issues with the highest priority.

 

A point to note is that as we made these changes in the interface, we have ensured all tools & features that are currently supported, retain their familiar functionalities and workflows as they did in the previous version. We are proactively addressing any gaps or issues reported by users related to any break in current workflows.

 

We will follow up on this response with a detailed article explaining the changes, a guide to help familiarise you to the new interface, along with regular updates on upcoming changes.

 

Thank you once again for your feedback and do look forward to our upcoming releases!

 

~Anand Sri.

Undo button please.  I still havent found it. Talk about a break in workfllow.  I haven' t worked on my doc in 10 mins because I can't find the undo button and my head is about to explode.  How in the world does burying oft used buttons deep in menu's enhance workflow?  Fell like I'm in the Twilight Zone being gaslighted by evil overlords.  We bought your stuff, can you please not now make it unusable? Please?

What you're describing I'm not seeing.  Maybe I need more sleep or something.  Where is the undo button?  I hope I'm just having a bad dream.  20 minutes now..  Trying to find the redo button for 20 minutes.  Tick Tick Tick Dammit

Nothing about the update "reains the familiar functionalites and workflows"- the most common tools are buried in submenus, nothing is intuitive. Ready to move to a different platform altogether.

Completely tone deaf.  No, I won't get used to it.  I hate it.  The new UI is less useful.

Just because you 'revamp' something, doesnt't mean it's simplify or optimized.  This new layout is poorly concieved and obnoxious; changes like this cause people to lose faith in your product. I'm now needing to research better alternatives to Adobe; rash changes like this make only cause people to distrust an organization/software platform.

I grew with you :hundred_points: %. I lost trust in the product as well. Such a simple feature that should be easily available is now hidden to make our life more difficult. It's like a slap on the face!

Bring back the undo button at the top of the menu bar. To bury this function in a menu is a BAD DESIGN. The undo button is one of the most used functions in many programs. It should be quick and easy to access. Please fix.
