...with double-clicking a PDF, dragging the PDF onto the app icon and/or clicking on the Dock icon. My iMac is 1 year old and completely up to (OS and software) date. It's ONLY Acrobat that fails to launch using these standard methods.
Is this happening even after uninstalling and reinstalling Acrobat?
Thank you for reaching out and sorry for the trouble.

Try the remove the application using the cleaner tool (https://helpx.adobe.com/creative-cloud/kb/cc-cleaner-tool-installation-problems.html) and reboot the Mac. Then install Acrobat directly from this link: https://helpx.adobe.com/download-install/kb/download-install-acrobat-subscription.html.
