    No form labels? I don’t know if Adobe has seen an html form. Often times there is a label just to the left of the input field…

    The typewriter tool cursor BOX has suddenly become much larger than the font size it contains.

    The BOX containing the text is more than twice the height of the font and the box shrinks and enlarges as the font size is changed, but the box always remains twice the height of the font.

    It never did this before and suddenly changed size.

    Does anyone know how to modify the default size of the box that text annotations appear inside?

    The “Add Text” cursor box that contains the text is the correct size.

    This issue is only occurring with the annotation feature text tool.
