In a previous version of macOS the Preview app opened a box at the bottom of the screen and allowed me to click the A (type tool) and place the cursor where I wanted the text, then click to create a starting point.
The current version does not automatically create a text box when you selected the Text Annotation tool.
Can I change the way the current version of Preview works, to match this old behaviour? I don't like having to move the text box where I want it and highlight the word text to begin typing. It was so much easier and faster the old way.
