Can't continue editing form in fill & sign?

I've opened a flat form in Acrobat Reader DC, and used fill and sign to fill out part of it. I saved the partially completed form and went back to work on it today. I realized one of the fields was incorrectly filled in, but when I tried to click on the text box to edit it, it just tries to make new text boxes--it doesn't seem to recognize that the text was created by fill & sign.

Is there an option I'm missing? When I was initially editing the form, I had been able to click on text boxes I'd just created and edit them, this just seems to have become a problem after closing the file.

Have you by any chance found a solution yourself yet? I've chatted with 2 different help center agents but neither of them were any help!

Can I edit a PDF that I signed?

If you’re the only one signer, you can remove the signature and then work on the document or edit the source document.

To remove your signature, right-click the signature and then choose Clear Signature.

If you have a signed PDF, you can request the signer to remove the signature and share the PDF or send an unsigned copy of the PDF.
