Try the forum for Adobe Acrobat.
Thank you for reaching out and sorry about the trouble.
Could you please confirm if the issue occurs on all the PDFs or with some particular PDFs? Please check.
Share the screenshot of the Acrobat Pro DC and OS version on the machine.
It would be helpful if you can share a sample PDF with us so we can replicate the behavior at our end.
Same here Larry. I have no idea how to fix this. Just started happening. I download a document and save as adobe pdf so I can highlight important items. This highlighter tool selects large sections and there is no way to change it. I am considering dumping Adobe since there is no customer live/chat support. Costs time and money.
Sorry for the delay in response.
You have downloaded a document and then converted it to PDF, as mentioned above.
Would you mind sharing the step-by-step workflow you did to create the PDF? Does this issue occur with all the PDFs or just a particular file?
Please share the screenshot or video of highlighting text for more clarification.
Let us know if the issue is already resolved.
Hi, Just noticed your response. So, sometimes the PDF highlighter tool works normally and other times, it has the oval. This has never happened before this year. Sometimes I save a pdf from an email attachment, web page etc. Sometimes I convert an excel to a pdf. I just don't see why it should matter. My goal is to have any PDF from anywhere be highlighted normally. Meaning a word, paragraph etc. I seriously use this tool and it is one of the most important reasons for Acrobat DC pro. I never had to run a recognized text command before either. I have attached 2 files.
