When I open a pdf attached to an email in Outlook 2010 none of the custom toolbars that I created in Acrobat X are visible. I can, however, make them appear by selecting "Customize" on the far right of the toolbar and selecting one.
If I save the email attached pdf first and then click on it to open it in Acrobat, my custom toolbars are there. Is there a way to make my toolbars appear when invoked from Outlook 2010?

Hi BobArnett,

This may be a bug I'm version X...I can't duplicate this in XI. It should pull up the standard view at created in the application.

Sorry it took so long to get back here. Anyway, I accidently said I had version X when I actually do have version XI but if you can't duplicate it, perhaps I have some setting wrong.

Can you get to the custom view via the toolbar?

Yes, that does work. I would prefer it to be the default.

Try disabling or deleting the add-ons so its not pulling up via the Outlook add-in but rather the native Acrobat application. That should do it.

Here is how to disable the add-ins for Outlook 2010: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/enable-or-disable-add-ins-in-office-programs-HA010034127.aspx#BM9

Following the "enable-disable" link instructions, I did that but after restarting Outlook, it made no difference. It still opens up pdfs with the default "Quick Tools" toolbar. Oh, well, like you said maybe it's just a bug.

Try Deleting the add-in as well as any Antivirus add-in, then restart your computer.

As a last resort, uninstall/re-install Acrobat. You can backup your custom Toolbar by doing the following:

1. Choose Customize > Manage Tool Sets.
2. Import and Export options, click Export.

Let me know how it goes.

The problem is not severe enough to make me want to go through the whole process of deleting the add-ins I have in Outlook and/or uninstall Acrobat. That procedure has caused me to many headaches in the past. So, because of my unwillingness, I will accept that your answer could have solved the problem.
