There seems to be some serious limitations with pro....
All I want to do is insert an image onto a pdf I have already built...
With the object tool you can copy and paste the image:
thanks for the page, very useful but ...
I can right click and copy image, move to my other pdf ... and all I can do is ctrl/v to paste - I paste the contents of what the clipboard contained 1 hour ago... the right click copy image doesn seem to be there...
I do not understand activate the object tool
in the other pdf
Content > gives me Edit Text or Objects or add or edit interactive objects
If from the top menu I select the Selection Tool for text and images and click on the pdf file, right click display nothing about pasting an image
thanks for hanging in there Bernd
Its not very intuitive...... Edit Text or Objects and then edit Object and right click inserts an image from a file.... good enough for what I need with images all I need to do is figure out why my text boxes do not work as you explained....
Really, this is not at all how PDFs are designed or expected to use. PDFs are not made in Acrobat. They are not edited in Acrobat, except as a desperate last resort. You should make PDFs in whatever design program suits you (e.g. Word, InDesign; NOT Photoshop) and save a PDF. For every change remake the PDF.
That is incorrect. What would be the point of Acrobat's existence if you had to use other programs to make changes to a PDF? You can make changes to text and images in Acrobat. I do it all the time. But the correct answer is click on Tools > Edit Object, then right click on the document and you'll see the option to Place Image.
Your milage may vary, but I consider it madness to edit a PDF content except as a desperate last resort where every other option (including backups and contract negotation) for getting an original file is exhausted.
Acrobat has a whole bunch of other functions and features as well as an indifferent content editor.
Simply right click on the page and choose "add image". Select the image you want and click on open. You can then put the image anywhere on the page using the mouse. Once you have clicked to insert it on the page you can resize it if required.
On the Menu Bar, click View -> Tools
When you see the Tools section on the right, you can also see "Sign"
Select Sign -> Place Signature. In the new window, from the drop down menu select "Use an Image".
Browse for the Image, and place it wherever you want to.
Hope this solves your problem.
What kind of "abuse" are you talking about. When it clearly states to use an image in the list of signature options, what kind of image is it referring to ? If somebody wishes to add his/her comapny logo, cant the |"Sign" option be used ?
