I'm running In Design V 17.0 and all of a sudden my type disappears or separates from itself in the text box.
There is also a weird outer box around the text box which seems to be influencing this.
I've called Adobe Tech Support multiple times now and no one there seems to know what to do other than do a screen share and ***** up my document.
