Everytime I open a document since the new update there is a sidebar that says Adobe Export pdf, how do you get rid

It's an automatic sidebar now that says Adobe Export pdf, with a bunch of options to convert your file to microsoft word etc or create a pdf, send file, or store files. Ever since this new update, adobe is a mess. Can't I eliminate this sidebar? I don't want it on every pdf file I send

The "Tools" area (as well as "Comment" and "Sign") is part of the new in Acrobat and Reader X layout, so I assume you upgraded from a version that is older than X.

You can hide the panels by clicking on the label of the active one: You have the Tools active, so just click on the "Tools" label at the top and it should get hidden.

This problem is caused by a new feature in version 11.0.3, which tries to determine if a document needs to be signed by the EchoSign service. Having the term "sign" anywhere on the page will trigger this. You can turn this off on a Windows system by using a registry key. Here is more information: http://www.adobe.com/devnet-docs/acrobatetk/tools/ReleaseNotes/11/11.0.03.html#echosign-integration

Take a look at my blog post - it contains a way to download a registry file and perform the change with a simple double-click: http://khkonsulting.com/2013/05/no-signature-required/
