The text box in question was created using the Edit PDF > Add Text function:


I had to zoom in on the screen to not give away sensitve info in the document I was working on, but in the attahced screenshot, I circled the 'resize' handle at the edge of my text box.  I CANNOT FOR THE LIFE OF ME GET THE RESIZE CURSOR TO APPEAR... THE ONLY OPTION AVAILABLE TO ME IS TO ROTATE THE TEXT BOX. I get this on ALL 9 of the resize handles... why did this change? Who asked for this? Is the rotate function at the top of the text box not enough? why is rotate an option from EVERY handle? where did the resize function go? How can I resize the text box now? How can I turn this back so these handles resize and not rotate?


Anyone else find this frustrating.
