    It may be that the PDF is secured and no changes are allowed.

    Perhaps there are no objects of the type it can select. This is how it works for me.

    I think perhaps you are making a natural but wrong assumption that everything on the page is an object.

    It isn't.

     

    "Objects" here are things NOT part of the page text - if there is nothing but page text and graphics there are no objects. It only selects extra things like comments and form fields. If you want to select text, use the select text or edit text tools you already have.
