I am new to creating and editing PDF files. I'm using Adobe Arobat X Standard.
I have converted a 65 page document from Word 2007 to PDF, I think I did this correctly. I now need to edit the footer on 2 pages. The footer has 3 parts, release date on left, page number centered, and date on the right. I need to change the release date and date. Help!
Thanks for quick response.
You might think that would be easier, but I'm dealing with a document that has multiple section breaks, and conversion from old version of Word to Word 2007 has been a nightmare. Each section has different release dates and versions, and deleting a section break messes with the whole document so I thought it might be easier to edit the PDF file. I tried to edit the footer on the PDF file, but my header disappeared. Any suggestions?
You should be able to edit the header and footer (if they were created in Acrobat) with the header/footer tool. If they were created in WORD, you likely will have to use the text touchup tool (renamed in AAX). As mentioned, you are likely better off editing the WORD document in the long run. Then you are all set for future changes when needed. It should not be all that hard to move an older WORD document to OFFICE 2007, unless you are talking about a WORD document from Windows 3.1 or something. In that case, it is probably time to do an update. Actually, 65 pages is not all that bad compared to most documents. I would take advantage of styles in WORD to update the document properly. You might find it useful to turn off some of the automatic features in WORD.
