Draw dots with pen

I am having trouble adding handwritten comments in pdf files using a pen. Specifically, I just can't draw dots - eg. on top of the letter i, at the end of a sentence or to write trailing dots...

 

There seems to be a minimum distance that the pen has to travel over the surface until the movement is registered as a stroke. As a result, I can only draw short lines but no dots, which is incredibly annoying. Is there any way to disable this behavior?

 

Any suggestions would be really appreciated!

 

What I looked into so far:

  • I checked the settings menu, but couldn't find anything.
  • I noticed that the minimum distance is much shorter if I use the mouse cursor instead of the pen. There seems to be a hidden setting that controlls the minimum distance until drawing begins. Though, I would rather draw a point by simply touching the screen without having to move the pen at all.
  • It seems to be unrelated to the issue with the smoothing algorithm that is discussed here: https://community.adobe.com/t5/acrobat/how-to-disable-automatic-smoothing-of-the-pencil-tool/td-p/98...

I should add that I am using Adobe Reader XI because thats what's on my company PC and I just found out that XI is very outdated. It seems that this issue was solved in DC. So I guess we can close this thread. Sorry for the fuzz. I wasn't aware XI was that old...
