    Does your problem affect all files or just one? If the latter, have you checked the document's security settings to see whether commenting is disabled?

    The latest versions of Adobe Reader have a stupid GUI (IMO) where buttons on the toolbar just get deleted if Adobe thinks there is no room to display them.

    Right-click anywhere on the toolbar, and you get a set of menus with all the available functions. If you select something, the corresponding icon will probably appear on the toolbar but something else will disappear to make room for it.

    Personally I've give up on Adobe Reader and use http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sumatra_PDF on Windows.
    It dones't look so pretty, but it has more functionality for what I want. The worst feature is the horrible yellow background on the first display (but you want get rid of that in the "advanced options" settings).
