I am making an invoice, and to make it very easy to edit when I come back to it, I set up the text boxes on a column, with multiple new lines in between them, however when I save the PDF it splits the single text boxes into multiple text boxes, making it more difficult to edit them.

Before saving:

After Saving:

Is there some setting I can change to stop this from happening? I want the PDFs to be saved in the way that they were created.

This is an inappropiate use of Acrobat and PDF. A PDF is not a word document. The content is not meant to be edited. 

To solve this issue, use form fields where data needs to be entered.

Or, make the invoice in Word. There's nothing to be gained at all by struggling to make it in Acrobat. You can use Acrobat or Word to convert your Word document to PDF in seconds - but never edit the PDF. Keep re-editing the Word document.
