I'm trying to fill in a pdf workbook for a course, everything starts fine on first opening the file, I can fill in the fields happily, but if I save the work and come back to it later on, I can't make any edits to what I've filled in or write in any of the boxes I should be able to, I can click into the field and the text cursor appears, but when I start to type, nothing appears
