Please see attached simpl scanned file.
When I first open it Typewriter tool works just fine.
If I extract a page from it, not deleting the page, then the typewriter tool only allows typing text and not modifying anything like spacing, etc.
Just ran a test:
1) I extracted the entire document to help enable the typewriter tool editi features. Tested the extracted file and everything works as expected.
2) I extracted one page out of this new document. The problem re-appeared.
So what it means is that when I extract a page the typewriter tool gets set to disable editing features.
My office just upgraded us to Acrobat Pro 9.1.3 on our XP- Pro.
The Typewrighter tool works unpredictably. In some cases you can type text in but you are not allowed to change its size, spacing and so on. The features are dimmed out. I am working on a file with multiple sheets which are originally scanned into pdf. What I found out is when the problem comes up, if I extract all the sheets into another file the problem goes away and then comes back up after a while, requiring me to re-extract the entrie document.
I have checked file settings and the security setting is always set to none.
Some of the things I am doing to these files (engineering drawings) is I am cropping a portion of the drawing and then extracting that page, saving it into its own unique file. Then I am undoing the cropping and moving on to other things. In some cases I am placing annotations on the files. I don't beieve any of these activities should be causing unpredictable performance of the Typewriter tool.
I have searched KB and all over the internet and have not seen any doscussions on this.
I would appreciate any insight that anyone can bring to us.
