Highlighter not working properly for me in Adobe Pro

I have an editable pdf that I'm trying to highlight. Instead of letting me highlight words or sentences it insteads highlight an entire area in a weird shape. I just want to highlight straight across as if I'm highligting a single line sentence or word. Any help is appreciated.

This happens due to an incorrect structure of the PDF file. You can't fix it using the free Reader.

However, what you can do is hold down Ctrl when making the highlight, and then it will switch to "free form" mode and you would be able to highlight a certain area.
