Way of expanding "Edit Text" fields within Adobe Acrobat XI Pro

A user I support needs to know how she can expand the "Edit Text" fields within an Adobe Acrobat XI Pro document she is modifying.

For example, when the "Edit Text and Images" option is selected within Acrobat PDF documents Acrobat automatically defines the borders for the text and images. When these borders are clicked on and dragged (in an attempt to expand them) the entire block of text is moved.

How can these borders be expanded to larger sizes (or simply deleted) without affecting the text and images contained within the block?

The user needs to be able to type text that will extend beyond these predefined borders.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If by "border" you mean the outline around the text box, you can delete that by un-ticking the "Outline Text & Images" box in Tools>Content Editing>Edit Text & Images>Format (red box in screenshot below):

You can expand the size of the text box with the sizers and you can type as much as you want without a problem...Acrobat XI Pro will automatically expand the text box to accommodate the new text...and it will automatically align the based on the alignment setting (blue box in screenshot above), i.e., Left Align, Center Align, Right Align, Justify Align.
