i used to tap the screen to see icons to pick text or the pencil icon to highlight. Now it's gone. Where is that option now??

I presume that you are using the new Acrobat DC app. Is it Acrobat DC for iOS or Android?
Here are the steps to add a Comment/Annotation to a page in Adobe DC for iOS.
Did you find the Commenting tools hard to find? We'd appreciate your feedback so that we can improve the user experience of the app.
how do you do this in andriod
Acrobat DC for Android has the similar UI (toolbar, icons, and labels). Would you give it a try and let us know if it works for you?
Thank you. This answered my question!! I actually finally found it myself after 3 hours searching. But I appreciate the time taken to answer me. Thanks again!! -JudyC

Glad to hear that it finally worked for you.
Please feel free to let us know what you do not like about the new app or what you find confusing or frustrating. We would like your feedback in order to improve the user experience in the app.
Here's another way to add annotations in the Viewer mode (without switching to Comment). The following steps will work for both the iOS and Android app.
You can also press and hold empty area on a page to display the context menu for adding other types annotations: Note, Text, Freehand, Signature.
Hope this helps.
It would be much better if we can add a note (comment) directly to a highlighted text.
Now the only way is to highlight a text then tap the Note (Comment) tool, which is much different from Acrobat for Desktop.
Nguyen, you are so very right. I'm dumbfounded when a company makes a great product and then Eliminates a feature that was really helpful, and means we double the effort to use the product doing the same thing we used to do. Doesn't anybody get it?
