          That is probably because it isnt made in LiveCycle...


          You may want to try printing the form as Adobe Reader PDF Form and then try to re-open the form in LiveCycle with the new file..


          You will have to remake that form...


          Good Luck!

              Open the form, goto the edit dropdown and see if the Replace Artwork option is selectable. If it is, then you cannot modify the non form components of the form in Designer. You can however, create a new artwork pdf with your new text (with another application) then replace the artwork.
