how to get the selection tool to draw with surface slim pen 2 Adobe Pro DC? With my older surface I upgraded to PRO DC and when I click the select tool and use the surface pen it automatically draws red lines where I move the pen. I upgraded to a new surface and have Adobe PRO DC and it only is a text cursor wanting to highlight text. How do I get the pen to stop highlighting text and draw?

Hi Will,

 

Hope you are doing well. 

As its name suggests, the Select tool in Acrobat/Reader is to select the text you want to add further action, such as copy, highlight, underline, etc. 

With your slim surface pen, its acts differently. No such preference setting might have been the reason for this change. Double-check if you have anything else (like strikethrough or underline) selected along with the select tool while moving the pen. 

 

If possible, share the screen recording where it reflects the same behavior.

 

Thanks,

Akanchha
