Adobe Acrobat Pro 8 hangs when text is highlighted

Aug 11, 2012 3:20 PM

When I have a pdf open in Adobe Acrobat Pro 8 and I highlight some text within the document, (preparing to copy part of it), it hangs and I get the following message:


"Adobe Acrobat 8.0 has stopped working".  It "checks for a problem" but then simply closes and I lose whatever I've been doing.  :-(  Any suggestions?

    Are you using AA8.0 or later. If not, you should take 2 steps. (1) do a repair (on the Help); (2) update AA8 (currently at 8.3.1: on the Help menu or download from the Adobe downloads>updates).
