I have the same concern as Greg Porth. For a seasoned Windows user, the menu bar line has become a simple go to for many features versus trying to recognize the buttons on the Quick Menu. Is there anyway to customize the Menu Bar as it appears in Pro 9

Yes, you can customize the Quick Tools toolbar at the top of the screen. Not sure if you can get it to look exactly like in 9, but similar.

I think we're discussing two different The Menu Bar had these header : 'Document', 'Comments', 'Forms', 'Tools', 'Advance'. The Quick Tools Bar was available in 9 but not so overbearing. I didn't think it was broke so why tweek it?. I'm guessing this will just be something I'll have to get used to using.

I'm talking about the toolbar (the list of icons at the top of the window, under the Menu Bar, which consists of the menus: File, Edit, View, Windows, Help). Most of the tools from the menu bar in version 9 and earlier have moved to the Tools pane on the right-hand side. There's nothing you can do to change that.

Sounds like the Tool Bar has been hidden,

You can use the menu 'View => Tools => any tool category" or the "F8" key to restore the tool bars.

The answer by "Gilad D" is correct, however some clarification is in order:

There are four main areas in Acrobat that can be accessed. One way to access these areas is via the "view" menu by clicking "tools" or "show/hide".

1. Menu Bar — The old menu items "Documents, Comments, Forms, Tools and Advanced" are gone and all that now remains is "File, Edit, View, Window, Help".

2. The Tools Pane — The functions that were previously found under the menu bar items "Documents, Comments, Forms, Tools and Advanced" — these can now be found in the Tools Pane. The Tools Pane pops up on the right hand side of your window/screen.
The drop down groupings in this pane can be customised via View menu > "tools", or "tool sets".

3. Finally there is the "quick tools toolbar", which is made up of the little icons with no text captions, that typically sit at the top of the active window. Most functions can be accessed by these icons (customisation required).

4. For completeness, there is also the pane area in Acrobat called the "navigation panes" which sit on the left hand side, featuring "page thumbnails", "bookmarks", "attachments" etc.

If you are missing your "Advanced" menu bar to utilize the Named Destinations function it can now (for Adobe Acrobat Pro XI) be found under the Tools menu on the right hand side. Expand the Action Wizard selection, choose Create New Action. This will give you a pop up window, select the Document Processing option and highlight "Create Bookmark from structure". Move this over to the right hand side of the screen and name your action. Click Save. Your newly named action will appear in the list in the Action Wizard section, Click it and click Start. The action will run and you can then select your structure. Next your named destination files will appear.

I hope this helps!
