Adobe Acrobat: Hate the New Interface? You can go back!
Posted by: Gareth

I recently got automatically updated to a new user interface for Adobe Acrobat (apparently everyone did if applying the latest update), which was jarring and actually removed an important preference for me: opening all documents in their own window. I usually want to look at multiple PDF's at one time, so opening them all up in a tabbed window was annoying.

And for whatever reason, Adobe thought they'd just remove this preference from the new interface. Luckily, you can revert to the old interface to get this preference back, and it's the only way to do so, as noted by an Adobe employee in this post:

This happened to me a couple of months ago, and I switched back as soon as I found info about how to do it. Not only were some things missing, but others were just moved around for what seemed no functional purpose at all. If they want to provide an option for mobile users, sure, have at it — but why on Earth try to force an icon-only, un-movable, non-customizable interface onto those who use Acrobat daily for work?! I wish they would concentrate on eliminating bugs, or improving some of the clunky processes instead.

I just hope that they won't remove the option to return to the old UI.
