Note: This option remembers your state of Toolbar. So if you open the Tools pane it will be open next time and if you hide it will hide the Tools Pane the next time you open the App.

Yes, it hides it when you open the next file on Acrobat, but it’s actually still there. Your cursor may accidentally reopen it. This is better than nothing, but I’d love to permanently remove even the possibility of it opening!
