The most recent version of Adobe Pro, when I am working on creating forms, if I accidently click on something other then a form field it puts me into EDIT TEXT & IMAGES mode - which is making it so much harder to work on forms. I'm constantly having to click the SELECTION cursor to go back to PREPARE FORM mode. If I am in PREPARE FORM mode I would love to just work on forms not editing the text on the page. Can I disable this feature somewhere? Very frustating! See example below.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
You can use the below registry details to disable this dynamic switching between text and form fields based on user click.
In case, you face any issues in setting the registry, refer https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/new-feature-unified-edit-text-and-form-fields/m-p/10684483?pa...
Please let us know if you still face issues even after setting the registry.

I hope Adobe are going to add this as a settable preference, and not send people to the Registry to disable this "feature".
I agree. I'm a full-time form designer, I would love for this to be a setting. There's really no reason that form and content editing should be combined... 😞
You can disable this in the preferences of Adobe Acrobat DC.
ok, and can you please share where exactly in preferences?
