When I open up an existing scanned file, and make changes to it in Adobe Acrobat X (by highlighting and underlining) I am unable to save the file under its original name.
Instead, when I try to save the file, it forces me to save as. I am wondering if it is just software compatibility with the file, but other computers with Adobe X worked just fine. So I am wondering what might have caused the problem.
Thanks for your time and assistance!
Well.. if the file size is small, and I don't have to save repeteadly, then you will be right: save as is similar to save.
But when the file size is large and I have to change repteadly (and therefore save repeteadly) save as becomes a hassle.
Thank you for attempting to answer my question, but what I'm looking for is a solution, not why I should continue to live under the "save as" problem.
The problem with Save is that it saves everything, old and new. That causes your file to become larger. The Save As gets rid of stuff no longer in use. Don't know if that is happening in your case, but could be the issue.
Again... my problem is that when I want to Save, the Save As menu pops up.
The error message:
The file may be read-only, or another user may have it open. Please save the document with a different name or in a different folder.
The problem is that the file is NOT read-only, and NO user (other than me) have it open.
Hope that clarifies my question.
What I want to do is to save, not save as.
Is the location from which you open the file - the folder or directory - on a server or somewhere where you haven't got full access? That could make it behave like a read-only file.
Or are you able to do a 'save as' back to the same folder?
good question...I was able to do a "save as" back to the same folder...
and the folder in not on a server, or anywhere I don't have full access, so I am stil wondering why it behaved like a read-only file...
do you know if the folder is synced to other computers (like dropbox), would that make it behave like a read-only file?
but the thing is that it works fine with other computers so I was thinking whether the problem stems from some setting in the PDF?
also.. another weird glitch I noticed is that if I make one or two changes, I can save but if I make more than those minor changes, the error message pops up.
