Open tools in the Tools center


The Tools center is the go-to place to use and discover tools available in Acrobat DC. When you have a file open and choose a tool, tool-specific commands or a toolbar appears in the document view. If you don’t have a file open and choose a tool, you will be prompted to select a file.
