Recently "print production" menu disappeared from the tools panel.
From View>Tools, I see Print Production menu.. when I clicked on it, it appears in the tool panel.
But when I close Acrobat XI, print production menu disappears.
So I got to repeat this process every time, I open Acrobat. It's inconvenient.
How can I have it show in the tool bar permanently?
This sounds like Acrobat has a problem writing (or reading) this UI change to/from it's settings storage. The first thing I would try is to repair Acrobat. If you are running on Windows, you will find the "Repair" option in Acrobat's Help menu. If that does not help, I would try to clear out Acrobat's settings: How to reset Preference settings in Acrobat.
Thank you. Repair recovered it.
Glad that worked. Sometimes things get "stuck", and (at least on Windows), the Repair option is usually a good start to get things working again.
