Problem toolbars that open in Adobe X

Apr 5, 2012 5:49 AM

Tags: #annoying #x #adobe #toolbars

We recently had to update some of our users to Adobe X.  When we open a pdf document sometimes the only pop up or floating toolbar is the properties one but then other times you open a document and you get the properties, comment & markup, select and zoom, and file toolbars all pop up.  We have these in the quick tool bar across the top why do these extra toolbars open?  How can I make it stop?  Ultimately we have to click 5 boxes to get them off our screen before we can begin working.


Thank you for any input you may have.

    Have you tried resetting the toolbar using Alt + F8? Can you provide a screenshot of what you're seeing?

    When someone initiates a Shared Review in Acrobat Std. or Pro., there is a preference in Acrobat that automatically opens toolbars for reviews. You can find this under Edit > Preferences > Reviewing. This should explain why you’re seeing the toolbars during a review.  I’m still not sure about the other toolbar, can you login to the forum (not via email) and post a screenshot?

    By chance do you use a program called PDFlyer?  If so...

    To fix...


    Launch Adobe X.

    Click Tools on the right side of the screen.

    Click on PDFlyer.

    Click Set Options.

    Click Start up.

    Unclick Restore standard toolsbars on start up.

    Close Adobe X and reopen.

    It would be very helpful to make this fix somewhere easy to find in the help discussions.  I've been searching for this fix for weeks now, and its so simple! Thank you so much!!

    I cannot thank you enough for realizing the issue is related to PDFlyer! The pop-up toolbars have been driving me crazy for over a year now. Thank you!!!
