Form fields not highlighting correctly

Hello. I'm trying to fill in a form (attached). When I click a box under the Identification section (e.g. "Individual") only the First Name field on that row becomes available. In Acrobat the behaviour is as expected, i.e. all of the fields on the row become available. Could somebody at Tracker take...

Hello and thanks for the response. I didn't see it, so have been a bit slow to get back to you I'm afraid.

Very sensitive when using tablet

I use a graphics tablet (Wacom Bamboo) to do most of my PDF work. XChange Editor is particularly sensitive to movement, so trying to double click by double tapping on an object also makes the object move slightly about 90% of the time. It's a pretty specific issue, but I wonder whether there is any ...

Ctrl-drag to copy - hurrah

Great to see that holding down ctrl whilst dragging now duplicates comments. Hurrah to that.

Now if only I could hold down shift to constrain it to an axis, I'd be a very happy user. But there's always 'just one more thing' that we ask for, eh?

Thanks Tracker!
