Acrobat Pro DC Form edit mode selection is BROKEN
In form edit mode, using the Select Object Tool. When selecting a column of form objects (e.g. check boxes) ALL non form objects are selected, and the tool reverts to the Edit too. This renders it impossible to perform actions on the form objects alone
In the file, try and select a column of checkboxes to match the behaviour.
This worked fine before the last update, currently on 2019.021.20047
I would suggest removing the Edit tool from the Form Edit mode, it is not necessary. It is available in the PDF Edit mode.
When I want to work on form objects, that is all I want to work on. Not other non-form objects.
