tool names

I must be blind or something, I cannot get the tool names to show in my acrobat anymore, all I see is the tool icon, no name.
What am I doing wrong?

That's just how it is. Hover over the tool for a pop-up description.

I just took a copy of pitstop that was on an ex co-workers mac (nobody was using it) and was setting it up and noticed that I couldn't see the names.
I haven't used it in about 3 years since I left my last gig. Haven't needed it much, but it is so handy to have around.

Sad, it would be nice to see the names so you don't have to hover over them.

ah, just another reason to drink.

thanks anyways.

If you set it up to use the toolbars on the right hand side of the screen instead of the quick tools above then you can have it show you the names or just the icons. And when you select a group such as "pitstop Inspect' it will open a toolbar above that has both the icon and names for the tools. Like this:
