The following simple PDF document contains a single FreeText annotation. The FreeText annotation is displayed correctly under both Acrobat 7 and 8. However, using the mouse to click on the annotation under Acrobat 8, causes Acrobat 8 to crash. Freetextcrash.pdf
Below is a screen shot of the FreeText annotation labeled “COV”.
The crash occurs in Acrobat 8 on both Windows and Macintosh.
Clicking on the annotation under Acrobat 7 selects the annotation as expected.
