Toolbar too large after update

After the latest update, the tool bar and the 'Tools, sign, comments' section have become too large and occupy nearly 30% of the screen. The default display size is 150% on my PC, but still this is the first time I'm facing this issue. I did not come across any settings in the preferences area to correct this issue. Any suggestions?

Hi,

It seems like the UI has switched to 200%. You can fix it by following steps posted in this thread:

Opened AR today font size in super small, went to "preferences" and so on, did changes, nothing work...

I hope this helps.

Best,

Luc

No, it has nothing to do with UI scaling. Adobe has made the toolbar icons and text ridiculously large so that you can only fit a few custom tool icons on the line before it moves into the three dot sub menu. Is there any way to adjust this? Really, the text and icons should be half the size they are (or less) right now.

Perhaps you could share a screen shot. Please don't try to email it.

I'm having the same issue. Trying to share a screen shot but selecting 'Insert Photos' does nothing for me for some reason. My productivity and hope of meeting my deadline are now dead ;(

 

Thanks for the update Adobe!

Were you running Acrobat DC before, and the icons and stuff were a reasonable size? Or were you running an earlier version like XI/X?

Acrobat XI Standard is currently being run for every employee and we have a standard quick tools set for everyone listing 15 of the critical options each person needs: Rotate pages, highlight, watermark, stamp, crop, insert page, insert text, strike through, form, etc. Those icons all fit. Now with the exact same screen width, we are limited to 4 buttons.

So we are searching for one of the following options for implementation of Acrobat DC:

  1. Make the icons and/or text on the quick tools bar smaller.
  2. Hide the unnecessary items on the quick tools bar to make additional room. (Account name should not be on there, for example.)
  3. Create a second row for the quick tools bar.

Thank you!

Hello:

I have the same issue.   When I snap my Aggrobat DC to the side of my monitor, most of my useful buttons disappear and so does my efficiency.   I'm posting a comment in the hopes I'll get a notice when a fix is sent out. 

Good luck and happy days.
