Never mind - figured it out. The Edit Document Text tool was displayed along with the Text Selection tool. When I reset the toolbars, the problem went away.

I don't know if I changed a setting or this is just an "update," but I'm suddenly being nagged by the Find Element dialog box in Acrobat (Standard X). I've always OCR'd my scans - sometimes dozens in a single day - and now, whenever I open one of those OCR'd document and click a word, the Find Element dialog box opens. I don't recall seeing it before this week, and now it's always in my face. I don't need it. Is there a way to suppress it?
