Since this update, anytime I want to send a document it opens the share window and I have to go through 3 extra steps to get the document to attach to an email instead of sharing.  Please tell me there is a way around that and to set it to default that when I click the envelope it will let me set up to default to attach to an email.  I'm not finding it in any of the preferences.

I've just created a free tool that brings back the command to send the file with a single click...

You can find it here: Custom-made Adobe Scripts: Acrobat / Reader 2019 - Quick File Send Button (FREE)

Hi Arvind,

 

I don't have admin credentials. Is there any way I can change the file registry manually? Thanks.

 

Regards,

Massimiliano

I have this issue too. Can't believe something as simple as an email button has been so overengineered. Give me an email with a paperclip icon and one with a chain link, if they want us to be able to do both, but I want to just click the attach to email button and the email opens up with the file attached. No extra clicks! Seems like I'm overreacting, but when you have to do a lot of emailing of PDF files, any bump in the road is a real annoyance.

This won't work for me. My office has blocked me from installing any software on my computer without admin credentials.
