Hey, WL'ers,
I want to edit a PDF file. Checking the file properties, there are no security (passwords, etc.) protections on the file.

Using Acrobat Pro, I can highlight the text, but my only options are to add a notation of some kind.

Is editing PDF content possible? How can I change the text in this document?

Using Acrobat Pro 7.0 for Mac.


You need to use the TouchUp Text tool. I don't have the latest version, and so I can't tell you exactly where the button is. But you're looking for an outline capital T (not a solid capital T). If you don't see the button, click and hold the solid black arrow button (TouchUp Object tool). This should open a flyout with the TouchUpText tool on it. Click that button to select it. Then you will be able to select a line of text at a time and edit it. You cannot edit continuous text (as in retyping a paragraph) in a PDF, though.
