Keyboard issues in Acrobat 9.. period not working??

Apr 23, 2012 1:16 PM

Hi there.. need a little help. Working in Adobe Acrobat Pro 9, and all of the sudden my period key won't work, and the delete key wasn't working either. Then, when I press the period key, it deletes text. ???? Looked all over for answers but can't find a fix to this specific problem. I've restarted, and ran software update. This didn't fix it. Any ideas? Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    What is the exact version (patch) of Acrobat that you have where you are seeing the problem? Where do you observe the problem of period key not working - textfields or with any text that you type anywhere in PDF? Or is it something in Flash where pressing the period key deletes text? What OS (Win/Mac) are you on?

    Maybe you've switched off NumLock? When it's switched-off, the period key

    acts the same as the Delete key.

    Looks like a bug to me. Did it work fine for you before the 9.5.1 patch for Acrobat?

    This will be fixed in the next patch release. Thanks.
