Hi

 

Recently, blue popup "tips" have started to appear in Acrobat. Unless dismissed, they hang around, and do not time out. This is hugely annoying thing for a program to do.

 

Is there anything I can do to stop them forever?

Hello, I hate these annoying blue tips that pop up every time I edit a PDF.  However, turning off the button in preferences that you show does not stop this from occuring.  Is there another solution?  Thanks!

I also have this problem. It's so annoying. With every new version Adobe puts new nasty things in the software.

The "General" settings page is now so big that it won't fit the screen of Full HD resolution (24" monitor) anymore.

I have the same problem.  
  
For the record, I recently got a new iMac and did not use Migration Assistant or any other process to transfer my apps and files to the new computer. I installed fresh versions of all my apps, including the Creative Cloud app, which I used to manage installation of my Adobe apps.  
  
One of the first things I did was turn off "Show me messages" as illustrated in the screen shot above.  
  
Contextual tips continue to appear regularly.  
  
When did I set up my new iMac? Five months ago. This is far more than enough time for the app to "settle down" and stop interrupting my workflow.  
  
What is there about the word "Pro" that suggests seasoned users need contant "did you know" or "why don't you try" messages destroying their ability to get real work done?  
  
Please, Adobe, help us. I do love your products, believe it or not. But I don't love this annoyance.  
  
Thank you for listening to this rant.

If you are comfortable with registry edits, you should look at https://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/PrefRef/Windows/index.html

Go to Hive --> FeatureLockdown --> Context menus, tips, tools

You'll find the registry setting for disabling the help tips

Remember to always backup our current registry settings before making changes!

Seriously? Edit the registry? That is a horrible solution and just plan laziness from Adobe. Fix the problem and make these annoying tool tips something the user can turn off themselves. For the record, I have unchecked "Show me messages when I launch Adobe Acrobat" and am still getting them.
