Editing Text

After you have a PDF document open, you may want to change the text. You can change any text in Acrobat with the TouchUp Text tool. This tool is not to be confused with the Select Text tool. The TouchUp Text tool enables you to change the text; the Select Text tool allows you to select text only to copy it and paste it into a document in another application.

To edit text with the TouchUp Text tool:

1.
Choose the TouchUp Text tool from the Editing toolbar or type T (Figure 5.25).

Figure 5.25. Choose the TouchUp Text Tool from the Editing toolbar.


2.
Click any text in the PDF document.

A box appears around the line of text.

3.
Select text within the box by dragging across it (Figure 5.26).

4.
Replace the selected text by typing.
