There are a lot of things to like about Acrobat DC: expanded Preflight profiles, the ability to edit PDFs on an iPad, the great new Custom Tool feature—and EchoSign is wonderful.
However, I still have trouble accepting the colorful Hello Kitty® tool grid. “Comment” and “Send for Comments” are both yellow—makes perfect sense. But why are “Export PDF,” “Certificates,” and “Rich Media” the same color? “Measure” and “Prepare Form”?
Beyond that, I wish we could rearrange the tools in the Tools array to our liking, and maybe even put in little dividers like you can with the Custom Tools feature.
But try to drag one, and you can’t—they’re stuck.
However, during a recent demo, I discovered that you *can* rearrange the tools—but it’s kind of painful.
I added the shortcut for the Print Production tool to the righthand pane, and then moved it up to the second position in the pane. Voilà (French for “I moved a tool”)—now the Print Production tool is second in the Tools array!
However, if I delete the Print Production shortcut from the righthand pane, the tool returns to its default location in the Tools array.
So, I’m afraid the only way to rearrange tools in the main array is to add them all to the righthand pane (which will make you crazy), and then drag them up and down in the pane. This just isn’t workable, but I’m throwing it out there in case someone finds it beneficial.
