It's normally not in the way for when it's not needed, and it appears (and stays) in the upper right corner when it is. It has its own "next" and "previous" arrows for navigating through hits, and it has its own dropdown menu for selecting search preferences. Clicking on its "x" closes it.
Nice and neat in my opinion.

$99 or maybe even $129, and i'd upgrade the whole team.
at $200, i'll wait until CS6 - because there's no "must have" feature in X that would limit us if we stick with 9.

1) No office integration
2) No way to integrate Acrobat with any other program. (It has a scripting implementation, but unlike the other Adobe applications, which have amazing implementations and documentation, Acrobat's looks like they did just enough work to say they have one. Most of it doesn't work.)
3) No sharepoint integration
4) Security modes aren't as good as the windows version.
5) no LiveCycle designer, so that you can create and edit forms with a tool designed for it, not the "works but you don't want to mess with it much" AcroForm tools.

I wonder why Adobe expends so much effort supporting Microsoft Word. I've got some PDFs that I'd love to be able to import into InDesign, but, even assuming the PDF to Word translation is perfect, I don't want to endure all the hassle that comes with Word imports into InDesign. You'd think PDF-to-InDesign would be a higher priority with them than PDF-to-Word. Let Microsoft handle the latter.
Any rumors that Adobe is working on an ePub design application? PDF is a very mature technology. Reflowable formats are still like the Wild West. It'd be great if someone with Adobe's statue would bring a bit of law and order to the digital Tombstone.

Don't pass, run away.

And you think they'd get a clue after screwing so many people and getting this same complaint over and over again so many times. It's really inexcusable.

AMEN. I've spent a small fortune on MM/Adobe suites over the last 15 years. I stopped at CS3 and Acrobat 9.....and my workflow is as good as ever.
