    how do i make a pdf editable?


      I have a certificate that I've scanned and opened in Photoshop. I would like to be able to edit the text in the document to enter names, etc. Is this possible?

          If the original scanned certificate had text that you want modifiable, you might try the following technique.


          (1)  In Photoshop, clear the existing text and resave as a PDF file.


          (2)  In Acrobat, create forms fields where you want to enter the names, etc. Note that you must use fonts that are (a) installed on your system and (b) allow “editable” embedding within a PDF file.
