Greetings,

I am using Adobe Acrobat Standard on an XP Pro machine. Every time I open a document, the toolbar (page navigation, zoom, etc.) does not show and I have to open it manually. When I open the next document, the toolbar is gone again. There has to be a way to make the toolbar settings stick, I just can't seem to find it. Any ideas? Cheers!

Alt-F8 should bring toolbars back

O.K. I am asking on behalf of my employer and yes, if I hit F8, the toolbars come back, but he shouldn't have to hit F8 everytime he opens a document. F8 will bring them back for that document, but if he opens another document, he has no toolbar. I have checked a few other PCs in the office, and so far, none of them have this problem. If the toolbar is open, it stays open, no matter how many documents we open or close. It's just his machine that seems to have this particular quirk. Any other thoughts? Thanks for the input.

If it's a doc (Word, etc.) I would check disable add-on list.

It's a PDF. Thanks for the input.

Did you try to repair Acrobat installation?

medvedd,

Not yet. I was hoping it was just a setting I was missing. My boss is in his office all the time and it's hard for me to get the time to get on his PC for something like that. Thanks for the input.

Hi

which version of Standard do you have?

There are a variety of reasons, it may be that the documents are set to open without Nav Bar for instance or a setting within Acrobat....

captainreiss,

Well, on my machine, the same document opens with all the toolbars intact, so I don't think it's the document itself. He is using version 8. Thanks for the input.

Open a doc, press F8 to make the Tool bar appear then right click on the Tool bar section. Go down to More Tools and make sure that the Tool bar you wish to have enabled is checked. Hit OK, close Acrobat and re-open it. I just tested it in version Standard 8, let me know how it goes.
