I don’t think I am the only one who upgraded to the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Pro, ending up hating the user interface of Acrobat DC. The first releases of Acrobat Professional were geared towards graphic arts professionals, with an interface that was plugin-friendly and somewhat in line with other Adobe applications. The DC version seems to target novice users or office workers instead. It is a powerful tool that desperately tries to look easy to use and in the process becomes an exercise in frustration. That doesn’t seem to hurt the adoption rate of this Fischer-Price edition, though. The poll below which ran from January to mid-March 2017 asked visitors which version they use.

If you also hate Acrobat DC, then make some noise on the Adobe forums, preferably in this thread.
