I just installed Acrobat X Pro on my computer. I also used Word 2003. Now in Word I have two new menus: Adobe PDF and Acrobat Comments. How do I get rid of these menus for good? I tried going to Tools / Customize / Rearrange commands and then right-clicking on the menus. I was able to delete them, but just for that document. When I closed out of Word and opened it again, the menus were back. How do I get rid of them for good?
Creating PDF files via the Print menu is beset with problems - you will lose all your accessibility, links and bookmarks. Using the Save As > Adobe PDF route is the only way to make the resulting file standards-compliant and fully accessible, and that requires the plugin be kept installed.
