Snapshot has been moved to unified File menu -> Undo, Redo & More -> Take a snapshot.

Such a radical change in UI should have been accompanied by documentation update. But the documentation still refers to old ways.

How can the snapshot tool be docked so that it is easily accessable?

 

Please help,

Alternatively, you can disable the new UI, via the same menu. Click on "Disable new Acrobat Reader".

Thanks, I was looking for a way to disable the new layout.
I thinks it’s very counterproductive to switch things around (thumbnails on the right and tools on the left) just for the sake of trying to make it look new.

Can't agree with you more! Change for the sake of change, an office full of people trying to justify their existence so they don't get laid off next...

Did anyone find how to add the snapshop button to the toolbar to make it easily available like before (icon below)?

Thanks for the information. Finally found the thing. But still cannot have it pinned to the toolbar or whatever it is called.

Thank you! We use this feature almost daily at our firm. Wish Adobe would make ALL commands capable to dock on the custom tool bar.

The "Take a Snapshot" tool should have never been moved to the Menu, in an obsecure titled section" Undo, Redo & More".   The folks at Adobe have lost their minds.

There's a new feature under Menu>View>Disable New Acrobat that I find particularly useful.  Restart Acrobat then right click on your toolbar (Just to the left of the Page Up and Page Down arrows) and under Show Edit Tools check "Take a Snapshot".  This will put it back where it belongs.  I was going to show screenshots, but once New Acrobat is disabled, it seems the option to enable it is gone on mine.  Perhaps this was due to the Acrobat team's insight that no one would ever want to go back to that crap....

Actually you can enable it back from View -> Enable new Acrobat Reader. I am not sure why you want to use that crappy UI though.

Why would they choose to hide one of its most widely used features in an Undo, Redo & More submenu?... This is crazy...

Main triple bar dropdown .... Disable New Adobe 
Gets us back to the Toolbar (with the TAKE SNAPSHOT feature). 
That's my workaround... for now. 
Not sure how to revert to begin using the New version again, but not in a hurry.

From Adobe Acrobat Pro (64-bit) old version
To return to using the New version:  View dropdown | Enable New Version
May be awhile until I do so.  Just an FYI for others.

I have been doing the exact same thing - doing a search to bring up the "take a snapshot" tool.  So extremely inconvenient!  It also needs to have an option to pin to the toolbar.

Thanks so much for that! But where is the support? You press Help, you get instructions for an old interface. This is basic stuff - we were getting it right in 90s when I used to write help! How can Adobe be so useless?
