I just started using Adobe Elements 2020 after using Photoshop 7 and Elements 10 for years. It's driving me crazy everytime I use the Rectangular Marquee Tool and the black box in the corner with Height and Width info drags alog while I'm cropping something. Is there any way to remove this box and just have the dotted lines while dragging the Marquee? I tried to see if there was a way to do it in Preferences, Help options and searched the Web and find no mention of this option...Thanks for any help you can provide.

I know of no way to change that behavior.   Frankly, it has never bothered me, but I can see how some might find it a distraction.

I have no problem either.

- I work in floating windows and zooming with the mouse. I can zoom out to see the text outside of the rectangle and the canvas.

- I click and hold on the opposite corner to move the text on that side.
