When I click on the highlight tool and highlight a specific text, the cursor automatically goes straight to the hand tool. When I hover my cursor over the hand tool, it is described as 'click to pan around the document'. This means that every time I want to highlight a text in my document, I have to reclick the highlight button which is quite annoying. I would like to keep my highlight tool on as I go through the pages of my document so that I can highlight different texts without reclicking the highlight tool. I have Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.
Can someone please please help me?
I'm not sure what to do
Thank you, how do you run a text recognition on your pdf? I'm clueless 😞
text recognition is possible with Adobe Acrobat.
I have Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, is it only possible to do text recognition with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC?
"I have Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, is it only possible to do text recognition with Adobe Acrobat Pro DC?"
No, it is also possible with Acrobat Standard.
which version of Adobe Reader DC are you using?
In Edit, Preferences, go to General, and in the Basic Tool section tick the box labeled " Make Hand tool select text & images".
It says Continuous Release Version 2019.021.20061. Thank you, I tried that and unfortunately nothing has changed
This is the discussion "Highlight tool automatically goes to pan tool".
You can lock the tool with the pin.
Thank you so much, it worked! 🙂
