Recent Acrobat Pro is losing basic functionality

Hey Acrobat Pro,

Since ~1991 I have been opening and reading PDFs in Acrobat. I want to simply attach to email to send the PDF to someone.

 

New-Interface-Acrobat Pro: "You can't. You have to allow Adobe to upload it to our Cloud, and we will allow you to send an email with a link in it. There is NO other way."

AI Assistant: "I will tell you several wrong ways that are not in current New-Interface-Acrobat Pro. I am completely unaware that the attach to email feature is gone in New-Interface-Adobe Acrobat Pro. Oh, btw, give me money to subscribe to me or else I will not answer you at all."

 

The actual answer? In Preferences > Email Accounts > turn off the checkbox that says: Always Send Files As a Link?

Yes... er, I mean, NO, it ignores this preference setting.

The real actual answer? View menu > Disable New Acrobat. Restart. Make it behave like it used to, and also look like it used to.

 

You gotta be kidding me.

I really want to upvote this.

I would like someone to explain how new Acrobat is useful in any business sense. I know it destroys all efficiency for prepress.

It seems that you need a different login for each feature request forum that is separate from your Adobe account.

adobe.com ≠ indesign.uservoice.com ≠ acrobat.uservoice.com

Do they really want to hear from us?

I do get a prompt when sending files via Outlook, but it's easy enough to turn off, and TBH, I do use on occasion so I can monitor the downloads.

Yes, indeed. Sometimes that is useful.

I'd just like Acrobat to load anywhere near as quickly as it did for years. Now I can open ID and be working on a doc in less time than Acrobat takes to show a first page.

 

I suspect it's all the cloud sh*t; count me among those who wants to be able to opt in or out of nonlocal functionality, as much for all these performance and function issues as anything.

 

Not Adobe, I know, but I can't even save a frakkin' Word 2016 doc any more without having to bypass the cloud options.

I don't really mind if stuff on the left swaps place to stuff on the right. But basic everyday functions like send to email? I have been mystified about font typeface and type size editing, too. It used to be in the right pane, but now where is it? And I find it difficult to discern whether I am in my installed desktop app or the browser version. And where is my document stored? Fundamentals like that have gotten muddy.

I like the Swiss-Army-Knife-ness of Acrobat, but it seems that the two screws that hold its ends together have fallen out.

Some of us hopped off the Acrobat upgrade train ages ago, Version 10 still does all I need...
