How do I edit a PDF file using Acrobat 9 - Version 9.4.0


I need to edit - copy, extract text, add text, etc. from existing PDF files to SAVE my changes,

or create a new PDF file from an existing file.


This is very important for me to be able to do my job effectively.


I spent over 2 hrs the last few days, and another hour today, still can't do it.


PLEASE respond ASAP with a solution.


Thanks in advance,

- Daulton West

    PDF is an end destination format - although Acrobat is capable of making minor changes to a file (e.g. to correct typos) it is not a word processor or DTP application. Major changes must be done in the original document, and the PDF file re-exported.


    You can copy text from a file by selecting it and right-clicking, or you can save the file as plain or formatted text. To make small changes to the text on a page, use the touchup tool - see the help file for more info.
