User cannot move the text box slightly in Acrobat 5. When dragging the text box, it always moves like basing a gird. User cannot move it to a proper position.

I am not sure if this issue is caused by some settings on Acrobat 5.

A possible solution is appreciate.

P.S. User processes PDF files via remote desktop.

Thanks & Regards,
William

Try using this key combination
   CTRL + arrow key

Note:  It may not be CTRL that allows small movements.  Try SHIFT if CTRL doesn't work.

Thanks for your help on this issue.

User tried Ctrl+Arrow, Shift+Arrow and Ctrl+Shift+Arrow, but either of them works, just page-up and down the PDF file.

Thanks again.

It has been a while since I used A5....

Check whether there is a Snap to Grid option in the View menu. If so, turn it off. Also there should be ways to adjust the grid in the Grid submenu.
