I am currently using Acrobat 8 Professional and I need to revise a PDF that was created with an older version of Adobe. There are text boxes in that PDF file that I need to revise. Normally if I need to edit a text box it just opens and I can change the text without issue. For some reason now when I double click on the text box it wants me to use typewriter. That would be fine except if I edit the text using the typewriter window that appears visually nothing happens. If I hover over the text it shows the revised text in a call out but the actual visible text does not change. If I double click on the text box and change the text within the box it creates a dark outline around the text that I cannot get rid of.
So that sucks, but hey I can just delete the text box and create a new one. Nope, can't do that either. I delete the text and it comes right back. My text edit tools are all greyed out so there is nothing I can do there.
Has anyone come across this problem? If so is there a solution?
