it says here you can enable the select hand tool?
in general preferances.
If using FoxIT reader is an option, I just tested your example file and I cannot recreate your symptoms, and it all looks pretty nice too :-)
I like being able to stop java script in it, manually, so i can more freely view things. the only thing that has ever bugged me a little with it, is the tiny add like thing or 2.
It runs about 2-3 times faster, probably just because it isn't beloted yet.
I have traced the install of adobee reader, and it makes a fine mess in the registry, I finnaly got fed up with it, (like many before me) and tested the foxit on 2 computers. traced the install, and it was not a huge mess.
There are some thing it can not do that have been added to adobee, that allows for "full programming" now , I did not think it was nessiary for a reader to be able to take off in my computer , and add to the array security issues. If the extra new features of the adobee programming sub-system are nessisary then it wouldn't replace it. And no I am not sure what it all is or means, I just have been around long enough to assume.
If you Install the thing even for testing, watch out for all the crap that can be turned off, they try and sneak a toolbar in and other goodies. So select the install items carefully.
