Acrobat's default behavior is a terrible time-suck for people who spend much time on editing. When using the select tool, it should start where I click and end where I stop dragging. If that can't be the default, it should at the very least be an option.
In what world do edits only affect entire words?
It's especially bad with punctuation - if I want to replace a word, I generally *don't* want to replace the comma or period next to it. Yet that's Acrobat's default assumption - I have to very carefully pull back from Acrobat's mistaken selection of the punctuation.Joshua Putnam supported this idea ·
