Basically I have the same problem as @flydiver described in his post. The hand tool no longer selects text. In the "Preferences" --> "General" the "Make Hand tool select text & images" option is select. I uninstalled then downloaded and installed fresh version of Adobe Reader and it still doesn't work.
In which version of Acrobat is this happening and what operating system are you on?
Also, what type of mouse device is in use? (just curious)
The OS is Widnows 10. The Adobe Reader as well as Widnows are updated to the latest available versions. The mouse is Lenovo Legion M200 RGB.
Could you please confirm the Acrobat Reader version on the machine?
You may use the steps suggested in the following help document to check the version details: https://helpx.adobe.com/in/acrobat/kb/identify-product-version.html.
Did you make any recent changes after which the issue started occurring?
Hi! The version is 2022.001.20169. I can't recall doing anything specific. I know for sure didn't tamper with settings, the most I could potentially do is update application or Windows.
Hi! It's not file specific, I'm facing this problem with all files.
