Is there any way to disable these annoying tool-tips in adobe reader? They come up every time I open a document. I am using Adobe Reader X.
Go to preferences and select the general category. Uncheck
And that should be it.
That should be it, and yet I still get the bubble that says:
I found the answer here and I quote:
That was it.
It has taken me ages to find out how to disable info bubble for all accounts under Win7 Pro; it worked as follows:
So far it worked for all Admin accounts but any standard user account in the machine continued showing the Tools info bubble when opening Reader XI.
As it seems, in addition to DWORDs indicated in Enterprise Admin Guide for HKCU\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\11.0\AVGeneral, another DWORD is required with name ´sInfoBubbleLastDisplayedTime´ (see http://forums.adobe.com/message/5049074) and with a hard to guess hex value; it worked for me to create a text file with .reg extension containing the text given in that forum as follows (sInfoBubbleLastDisplayedTime hex value all in one line):
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Adobe\Acrobat Reader\11.0\AVGeneral] "bReaderShowCPDFToolsPaneInfoBubble"=dword:00000000 "bReaderShouldShowInfoBubble"=dword:00000000 "bAppInitialized"=dword:00000001 "sInfoBubbleLastDisplayedTime"=hex:44,3a,32,30,31,33,30,32,30,35,31,31 ,33,34, 31,37,2d,30,36,27,30,30,27,00 "bReaderShowEPDFToolsPaneInfoBubble"=dword:00000000
then, while logged as standard user, clicking on the .reg file includes the values in the registry and does the trick.
I hope it helps someone as desperate as I was until I found this peculiar DWORD value.
