I'm using Adobe 2017 at work...  When I go to Tools, Prepare Form to edit the existing text field boxes on a form, I can't change the text field width freely or add a text box wherever I want.  It's like there are margins set that are stuck or something is preventing me from editing the boxes freely.  I used to be able to make them any size or place them anywhere on a form.  For example if I remove the text box next to Hourly Rate, and try to add a new text field box it won't let me place it right where I need to or adjust the size freely.   I've notieced this now with any form I try to edit.   Any tips or tricks would be appreciated.  Thank you!!Capture.PNG
