Adobe Acrobat 6 Standard problems with TouchUp Text Tool
Posted on 2005-05-10
We have upgraded from Acrobat 5 to 6.0 but now have problems editing our PDF's. Typically on a Shipping Order document we produced the text looked like this;
Number of Packages: 100
Previously when we used Acrobat 5.0 the TouchUp Text Tool would highlight the appropriate text when we clicked on it, so to change the 'Number Of Packages" I would click on the qty, as this was selected a small box would appear around the qty and allow me to change the value 100 to whatever I wanted - ok. Now on Acrobat 6.0 when I do the same Adobe puts a selection box around the entire block grouping all 3 lines/all text together - no matter where I click. When I try to edit any part of the text the cursor does not line up exactly with the text so the text entered is out of line by a few points (too low), this subsequently shuffles the text below ending up with a mess. Is this a font problem ? I just can't figure out why this version of Adobe does not recognise individual text elements. any ideas?
