          Hi,

           

          There are a few reasons why the replace page functionality would be disabled for your PDF. Given that you are posting to the Adobe FormsCentral forum, I'm going to assume that you're working with a PDF generated by the FormsCentral application.

           

          When FormsCentral generates a fillable PDF form, it generates a Reader-extended PDF to enable useful form-filling features when it is opened in Adobe Reader. Adobe Acrobat disables certain document-editing features when it detects that a PDF has been Reader-extended. To edit the PDF, you must save a copy of the PDF:

           

          1. Open your PDF

          2. Select the File | Save a Copy... and save to a location on your system

          3. Close the original PDF and open the new copy

          - at this point the replace page functionality should be enabled

           

          Let me know if this helps.

           

          Regards,

          Brian

            Thanks for your reply, but no not generated by Forms Central application. I just googled online help and that was the only place I could find to ask a question. I have already done a save as and that didn’t fix it. Are you not allowed to answer questions if it wasn’t generated by Forms Central application?

             

            Thanks,

              That's no problem, Cathy. I figured I would start with the most common issue that we see reported on this forum. If you sent your PDF to me, bhavlin@adobe.com, I will help to identify why that functionality is disabled.

               

              For future reference, here's a link to the Adobe Acrobat community forum:

                    Hi to whomever gets this at Adobe. For some reason the delivery address is changing every time I reply to bhavlin. Would you please forward this to Brian Havlin for me? Thanks!! ☺

                     

                    Hi Brian,

                     

                    I have sent the document twice. The first time I sent it your address changed to where this email is being delivered this time.

                     

                    The second time I cut and pasted your address and the email came back to me undeliverable. I hope you get it this time. Please let me know when/if you do receive it.

                     

                    Thanks ☺

                      Hi Cathy,

                       

                      Are you having difficulty because you are replying to the forum post notification email? Please try creating a new email message to send your document directly to me at bhavlin@adobe.com.

                       

                      Thanks,

                        Hi Cathy,

                         

                        I received your document. The PDF is an XFA (Adobe XML Forms Architecture) form, for which Acrobat restricts certain editing functions. If you were hoping to change the content of the form, you would need to edit it using the Adobe Livecycle Designer application, which is bundled with Acrobat X Pro.

                         

                        Hope this helps.

                         

                        Regards,

                        Brian
