Touchup Text Tool & Typewriter missing in Acrobat 8

Touchup Text Tool & Typewriter missing in Acrobat 8

Touchup Text Tool & Typewriter missing in Acrobat 8

I have a home business which relies on Acrobat Professional 8.0.1 every day to make, combine and edit PDF files. We recently had a computer crash. We had everything backed up. I reinstalled the programs and when I went to edit a PDF file, the Touchup Text Tool simply does not exist in the list of tools. What I show now is Tools> Advanced Editing> Select Object Tool / Article Tool / Crop Tool / Link Tool / 3D Tool. There is no Typewriter, nor does it appear in the list of tools.

I have searched pretty extensively and cannot find this problem addressed anywhere. I have re-installed the program using the "repair" option, but it did not appear.

I would appreciate any help anyone has to offer on this.

RE: Touchup Text Tool & Typewriter missing in Acrobat 8

In re-reading my post, I may have been unclear. I am missing both the TouchUp Text Tool and the Typewriter tool.
