Hi,

I just start to use Adobe pro for editing some technical documentations.

I have a strange bug,

When I "add text" and start to write something, each time I end the sentence with a dot - " . ", she just jump to the beginning of the sentence.

Or if I want to have a short sentence and to end him after only few words, it still happens.

Also happen with " , "

What I want -

The kids are very happy.

What I get -

.The kids are very happy

Thank you.

lol no, just English, exactly as the example.

Although the fact that I have Hebrew on my PC has something with that problem.

Hi Itsikl,

As you have mentioned above, whenever you place a dot at the end of the sentence, it jumps to the beginning of the sentence.

Could you please let us know if it is an issue with a particular file?

Did you try to replicate the issue with other files? If not please do and let us know how it goes.

Let us know the dot version of the Adobe Acrobat application installed on your system.

You may refer the steps provided here Identify the product and its version for Acrobat and Reader DC to heck the dot version of the application.

Are you on Mac or Windows? What is the OS version installed on the machine?

It will be helpful if you can share any one file with which you are experiencing the issue.

You can share the file with the steps provided over here How to share a document.

Let us know if you have any questions.

Regards,

Meenakshi

Hi Itsikl,

Sorry for the delay in response.

We tried to replicate the issue at our end and it works without any issue.

Please try once to update the application to the latest patch released.

Check if you still experience the issue with the latest version.

If that does not help, try once to reset the preferences of the application.

Take help of the steps provided here How to reset Acrobat Preference settings to default.

If the issue still persists, please share the exact steps you do.

As you are trying to add the text, are you using "Add text" option in Edit PDF tool or in the Comment tool?

Let us know how it goes.

Regards,

Meenakshi

Hi Jbu,

Please try once checking the preferences as suggested below:

In the application, go to Edit  > Preferences > Content Editing > Reading Order.

Try toggling the option provided in the drop for Reading Order.

Check if that makes any difference.

Let us know how it goes.

Regards,
