Hello all and thank you for any help that comes out of this.
I use Acrobat XI for several forms for work. They are timesheets. I created these forms from another PDF that was given to me. Part of the use of these forms involves adding Drawing Markups and editing the Markups later. The Markups in this case are simple lines. In Acrobat 9, this was an easy task. I could easily grab the Markups I had inserted and manipulate them any way I chose.
Now, in Acrobat XI, once I insert a line, I basically can no longer touch it without doing a very clumsy work-around. Every once in a great while, I get lucky and am able to get my mouse over that one magic hidden pixel and then I can grab the Markup and do what I need.
It just seems much, much more difficult working with Drawing Markups in the new version.
Am I doing something wrong? Is there an option I don't know about?
Thank you in advance.
Thanks for the reply, Gilad.
No, this doesn't work.
If I open the Comments List, I can see the Drawing Markup listed there, and I can click on it in the List and it will become selected in the document. I still cannot interact with the object in the document except to delete it once it's selected from the Comments List. It doesn't matter if I am using the Selection tool or not.
Also, which select tool are you using. The suggest was to use the Object Select tool (which might also be called the Select Object Tool), which has a single black arrow. But you refer to the Selection tool, an arrow and cursor, which has nothing to do with it.
Thank you again for your attention.
As I said in my initial post, they are Drawing Markups. They are not associated with text although they do cross over several empty form fields. They are lines that I manually added from the Drawing Markups toolset.
OK. The tool I'm talking about is under Tools - Interactive Objects -
Select Object (a black cursor).
Try using it to select and move your markups (although other tools might
work as well, but it's easier with that one).
The only choices Acrobat XI gives me are the "Selection tool for text and images" and the hand-shaped "Click to pan around the document" button.
There is a "Tool Set" option under the View menu, but there is no "Interactive Objects" submenu.
Please note the image I have included of the toolbar that I am presented with in Acrobat XI. Does the button you are suggesting I use exist anymore? I haven't seen it since Acobat 9 and I have scanned through menus and see no way to add another Selection Tool to the toolbar. If it does exist, please tell me how to turn it on.
