How to Create a "Custom Tool" in Acrobat DC

I spend a fair amount of time on the Acrobat User Voice pages, and wanted to deal with a hot-button issue for people. Many users would like to be able to customize their toolbars, and it is not readily apparent how to do so. They are much more customizable than it first appears.

I think the main reason for this is the nomenclature used. This video helps to explain the various types of tools within Acrobat, and compare them to the UI elements that are consistent among other Adobe applications (but totally inconsistent with Acrobat).

This is really part 2 of a topic I began in previous video about how to customize toolbars in Acrobat DC.
