text in "add text comment" is cut off

When I click "add text comment", the bottom half of the text is cut off when I start typing text, no matter the size text I choose. Then it takes some magical incantation for the text box border/ perimeter to stay 'visible' while I click on it and drag the box bigger until the entire letter is visible. How do I change the default size of the add text comment area so that when I start typing the entire letter is visible?  PLUS- how do I make the text box visible so I can drag the borders & resize? I can not seem to figure it out, it just sort of stays visible after about a million clicks. Whoever made these sweeping "improvements" since about March of last year seems to want people to run away from this product as fast as they can. It WAS a fabulous product in the many years prior. Now I try to avoid it as much as possible. Sorry, but it is true...

Here are your instructions & what I did:1. Click on comment Menu and then on Text Box Tool -  This was successful. I got my text box....

 2. Click the Arrow button - This to was OK...

3. Click inside the area to highlight it and click Properties Button -  I clicked (both left & right), the box border highlighted, but never inside the box... 4. Now click

- Key F4 - when I did this, the magnification of the page changed...

3. Set the properties:   I do not know what you mean by this... This is not "intuitive" to me. (I know to you that may sound dumb, but do you know how to prep a formula 1 race plane so it is safe & fast,  set valve clearances & sync dual side-draft carbs in cars & motorcycles? Those are easy for me...). Do you mean go to the preference & property option in the "edit" tab at the top of the page, or the property box the comes up when you click on the text box?  I did see a "properties" option in a pop-up box when I clicked inside the text box.  I clicked "properties", and in the "text box properties" box put a check in the 'make properties default' tick box. That did not make the box size default, as the next box I made was the same small size as before. The text fits in the small box UNTIL I click to 'set' the box - the box border actually goes UP & to the right a tiny bit & a larger border appears over the letters & the border at the bottom disappears as does the bottom half of the letters. The text box seems to shift while the letters remain stationary. Although for some reason it is now a simple one step to grab the box & manually enlarge it. I will accept that much victory for now. Your instructions were not complete enough for me to reset the default box size. I do not wish to pursue this any further at this time, it is not imperative.  Thanks for your time & help...Doug

Did this ever get solved? I'm having the same problem. I can only expand the text box when I switch the type of text I'm using (from text comment to text box, for example). This is primarily happening in the text comment mode. I was using this feature and it changed from one document to another, it took a minute at the most to switch between them. It's technically fixable, but highly inconvenient, expecially when it worked as it should moments ago.
