    Keeping the toolbars that I want

    dying veteran Level 1

      There is some info on the other thread that I dont want to repeat, so this is the link:




      but briefly



      I have unchecked this setting for years but I am weekly  bothered by

      Acrobat 8 changing the  toolbar selection against my wishes.

      Is  this my fate to suffer every few days when acrobat randomly with a

      mind  of its own changes the settings ?

      My  fingers hurt from typing unnecessary keys in the keyboard. Can any

      responsible  soul from adobe get a patch to solve this problem or a one click

      javascript  ? If I fix the problem in one instance of acrobat, ie the annotation

      bar  specifically, underline, multipe clones of it appear on other windows  and

      finally the program crashed or  the screen starts flickering.
