Hello,
I was using Adobe Reader for editing some documents, then I press something on my keyboard and a strange gray box started showing next to my cursor. Now it changes to edit mode every time I get close to any text box or drawing, so it's pretty hard to move things. 
What key do I need to press in order to make it dissapperar?

Would you mind sharing the exact version of your Acrobat?

 

Did you meant to say Adobe Acrobat Pro?

 

I don't know that you can editna PDF with Adobe Reader, but you may want to check in Edit, Preferences, Accessibility.

 

It is possible that a mouse gesture or keyboard combination gesture was activated with something you did.

 

Does hitting the escape key do anything?

Yeah, sorry, I mean to say Adobe Acrobat.
That's my version.
Yea, I might activate something by accident, but I can't undo the change. 
The only thing I haven't try is unistall it and install it again

I'm sorry, but if I use another computer and click on the selection tool it looks like this.

There's no gray box next to it.
