So I’m in Adobe Acrobat today and find that my regular toolbars aren’t present. Naturally, I go to the view menu and begin selecting items that I think may be the correct set of tools that I’m looking for. The first item to grab my attention in the View menu is “Menu Bar”. So I select the item and what happens? The system menubar is no longer available along with my dock. I’m not talking about any of the toolbars in the Acrobat. I’m talking about the Menubar that lists (Apple Menu), Acrobat, File, Edit, View, etc. Now how do I get my menu back? I have no idea because I just hid the way I made it go away.
You would think ‘esc’ might bring things back similar to when in Fullscreen view, but nope. Frustrating. After doing some research online I found the hotkey to bring back the Menubar. So to help anyone else to have this issue,
the default hotkey to bring back the Menu Bar is: Shift+Command+M
Hope this helps someone. And thanks again, Adobe, for your flawless user experience.
