What's your MAC OS?   If it's Ventura you are S.O.L. and time to get the latest version.     
Here's a link to a free 30 day trial.

Ideas about what's going on:   The pdf is protected..... display driver not up to date..... you have a 4K monitor.....

You're not going to edit the pdf like you can in adobe acrobat pro- that's not within the ability of any version of PSE.

Thanks for your quick response. I am running Ventura, the monitor is 4k, and in this instance, the pdf may be protected, but I have had the problem with non-protected files as well. 

 

The only reason I was trying to edit this in Elements is because when I redacted some text in Acrobat Pro, I couldn't write over it. The redaction left a white redaction box that could not be overwritten, whether I set the redaction to be opague or transparent.
