TIP 87: Object TouchUps

An object you create in Acrobat, such as a link or a form field, can be selected with the appropriate tool, or with the Select Object tool, as described in Chapter 12. And by using the TouchUp Object tool, you can select content imported as part of the document, such as text, images, and multimedia objects.

What Else Does It Do?

Glad I asked. In addition to cut, copy, paste, and move options, you can use the TouchUp Object tool to do other types of editing in your document. Select an object or objects, and then from the shortcut menu, click:

  • Delete Clip to remove any objects that are clipping the selected object.

  • Create Artifact to remove the object from the reading order so it isn't identified by the Read Out Loud feature or a screen reader program.

  • Edit Image to edit a bitmap in Photoshop, or Edit Object to edit a vector object in Illustrator. The commands change based on the object type.

  • TouchUp Properties to open the Properties dialog, where you can edit the object's content, tag, and text information.
