hello how do I stop the textbox from joining and reflowing other textboxes nearby when using the "Add Text" tool under "Content editing" ? thanks
Not sure you can. You have found one of the reasons that edits in Acrobat are not recommended for anything other than minor fixes. Things typically go bananas and you have to scratch your head a lot to get the text editted. I don't have a better answer, and in fact I often have problems editting too.
in the image you posted, is it from acrobat 10 or 11 ? I am using acrobat 11. But, what do you mean automates the process ? I have illustrator CC open with my pdf page and also editing the pdf itself in adobe acrobat 11 but nothing is automatic.
