When I "Add Text", the text appears considerably below the cursor where I clicked on the page.

I am using Acrobat XI Professional on a Windows 7 machine. Whenever I use "Add Text" and click on a specific spot (i.e. a line or in a box), the cursor starts blinking right where I want the text. So far, so good... but when I start typing the cursor suddenly drops down and the text appears a line (or more) below where I want it. This happens in every pdf and it doesn't seem to matter what font or size I use. Any suggestions as to how I can get "Add Text" to behave like the old Typewriter Tool that put the text right where I tell it to?

Uninstall and reinstall Acrobat.

It did work, although it was a hassle to reinstall Acrobat. Having lost a bunch of my settings and menu items, it took a while to restore it to my preferences. Thanks.
