Could you try the steps mentioned at https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/edit-scanned-pdfs.html#enabledisableautoocr to disable automatic OCR and see if it works?

@Bilal's response seems to "fix" the issue, but I'm voting for this because this UI setting is extremely unintuitive when working with files that are not part of a scanned document workflow. It is not likely that user would use an OCR setting for a document that did not originate from a scanner.
Additionally, this setting should be something that should be set globally, vs. per document.
Agreed. HiDPI screens are very common and automatically enhancing thin lines creates a negative end-user experience. For example, one has to explain that "it doesn't really look like that" when using a PDF. This affects many types of documents, including detailed illustrations.
This should be kept as an accessibility option, however, not as the default.
