It is happening to me too in high Sierra 10.13.6 with the latest acrobat dc 2019.008.20080
but the beach ball is there for 20 seconds after that I can use the application but it does it every time I open the application.
here is the sample:
If this thread is still open to this problem, I want to report the "spinning beachball" on Acrobat startup. About 10 seconds after Acrobat opens, the beachball shows up and hangs everything for 15 seconds. Each and everytime I open Acrobat.
If you have a solution, let me know.
Sorry for the delay in response.

I have clean uninstalled and reinstalled Acrobat DC and at least it has taken care of my PDF documents hanging. I still have a 20 second hang a few seconds into starting Acrobat even without even opening a document, so I've yet to chase that down.
