Unable to resize text boxes and added form elements with Power PDF

Unable to resize text boxes and added form elements with our PDF software

Information:

This article provides information on an issue that may arise where you add form elements to a PDF document, such as check mark boxes, text boxes and radio buttons.

 You may find after an option is set that you become unable to resize text boxes and added form elements with our PDF software and to change the size when attempting to adjust them after they are placed. 

Cursors and items will jump around the page in 1 inch increments and not respond to your mouse movements and desired size.

Cause:

Under view "snap to grid" was enabled and this setting causes the elements to only be placed on gridlines and this setting may be checked and forgotten about.

Solution: for power PDF :

please see click under the edit ribbon >  under Alignment > click to uncheck snap to grid to resolve this issue
