Attach as Adobe PDF, not needed


D

DavidJ726

I like my toolbars to be clean of features/icons I don't use. One of the
features I'm trying to remove is the Attach as Adobe PDF (when creating a
new message in Outlook 2003)

I'll open up a new message, then right click on the menu bar and select
customize then commands. I'll then drag the Adobe PDF icon off of the bar
and select close in the customize window. Next time I open a new message
the icon is still there. Is there a different method to customize the menu
bars in Outlook?

I've searched the MS KB for "Attach as Adobe PDF" and "Customize Toolbars in
Outlook 2003", There were no hits for the Adobe PDF querry, and very few
non-applicable results for the customize querry.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

David...

Blame Adobe for this one, not Outlook. They've programmed their e-mail
plugin for Acrobat to always put their button on the toolbar. You'd have to
disable the plugin in Acrobat to get rid of it, as far as I know.

follow the steps at http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/ol2002sp3.htm#acrobat
to disable the acrobat option completely. It'll work for any version of
outlook.

Also, instead of dragging it off the toolbar, try closing (unchecking) the
acrobat toolbar. This allows you to enable it should you even need it and
doesn't require editing the registry.

Thanks Diane,

As far as I can see, there is no individual toolbar option to check/unchek
for acrobat but the registry change did the trick.

Thanks again,

David...
