I want to highlight the old way and I can’t anymore. I want to highlight text that has been OCR’ed from a scanned document or other documents containing text.

Please check the correct answer marked in the similar discussion (https://adobe.ly/3OepWXH) and see if that works for you.
Note: Steps are same for the new version.
If it still doesn't work, please remove the application using the Acrobat cleaner tool https://adobe.ly/4b8sH6y, reboot the computer and reinstall the application using the direct link https://adobe.ly/3SwIUeO;
This didn't work. Should I roll back to X or something?
