Editing Text

Another way to edit a document is to actually change the text, not just comment on it. You can change any text in Acrobat with the TouchUp Text tool in the Advanced Editing toolbar. Unlike the Select Text tool, TouchUp Text enables you to change the text. One important caveat is that you must have the same font installed on your system as the text that you wish to change. Acrobat will let you know if this condition is not met.

To use the TouchUp Text tool

1.
Select the TouchUp Text tool in the Advanced Editing toolbar (Figure 8.12).

Figure 8.12. You can edit text with the TouchUp Text tool.


2.
Click any line of text in the PDF document.

A box appears around the line of text.

3.
Select text within the box by dragging across it (Figure 8.13).

4.
Replace the selected text by typing, or delete it by pressing the Backspace/Delete key.
