Acrobat DC requires more mouse clicks

In Acrobat DC you can create your own tool sets. Unfortunately you will have to open your tool set again EACH time a new PDF is opened.

Since it’s not possible anymore to collapse the tool sets (like in Acrobat XI) you either have to put all your tools in one large tool set (which requires frequent scrolling) or to create multiple tool sets. A change of the active toolsets requires another two mouse clicks.

Acrobat DC users are not satisfied

In online forums one can find a lot of messages of unsatisfied users of Acrobat DC. I have analyzed the problems posted in the Acrobat forum of Adobe and have found the following major complaints:

  • A lot of users complain about the right hand pane (with the tools) and the left hand pane (with the navigation panes).
  • An other problem is the user interface which is too bright. There is almost no contrast between the user interface and the PDF document.
  • Some don’t like the big start/welcome screen which cannot be disabled.
  • Quite a few users have reported installation problems.
  • And of course the automatic removal of Acrobat XI during DC installation is a popular topic.
  • Reader users are complaining that 80% of the Reader tools don’t have a function (marked with a lock symbol in the screenshot below). They just redirect to (paying) features of the Document Cloud:
