I am having trouble filling out pdf documents in preview because as soon as you tab over to the next box the text shifts down and half of it disappears. Same result when I print and if I email and open on another computer. Anyone else have this issue?

I think that’s a function of how the form is designed. Sometimes I will add text using the annotation tools rather than filling in the form fields.

All of the same forms work perfectly on my other mac running different OS.

Happens on my brand new mini as well as my MacBook Pro that I updated to Mojave.

Also noticed that the field that you can fill in no longer has a box outline around it and when you click on the field the curser completely disappears.

No one else having any issues?

I began having the same problem when I upgraded to mojave. It is so frustrating….
