    Text location changes upon save


      Using Fill & Sign on a pdf (not pdf form).  After entering the text and my signature, I save and the resulting document has the text that I entered in completely different spots within the document.  I can solve it by going into Edit PDF but I don't really want to enter text in that mode.

            Hello - i actually got it to work by reducing the zoom level to 75%, which is strange, so I'm going to still mark this as an issue.


            I am using Adobe Acrobat Pro DC Version 2015.023.20056

            I navigated to the page in which I wanted to add text, selected Tools/Fill & Sign/ and used the text and sign functions to fill in a form (however this form was not created as a PDF form - just a word document that was converted to pdf).  When I click 'Save' the refreshed document placed the text at the top of the page.  I went back into the document using the Edit function and physically moved the text boxes back into place.  When I saved that version, the text remained and the document looked as it should have.

            I have used this function with files from different sources with no issues.  This has occurred with multiple versions of this one document which I have received from a different source.

            I am uploading the screen capture - however, when I go into this same file and try to recreate the issue, it no longer happens.Capture After Save.JPG
