What OS do you work on?
Please check the document properties and see if it was only made compatible with Acrobat 10 and not any higher versions.
Hi thank you for responding!
I'm in Windows 10. The properties say that its compatible with DC and does not show any restrictions or anything.
Do you think it has anything to do with the fact that its a free trial?
I also when ahead and tried to create my own PDF portfolio, by creating it through DC and once I did that I still cannot edit the portfolio. For example... I want to sort my files in a particular order. I cannot seem to do that and all my edit options are still greyed out. If I click on a specific PDF within the portfolio the PDF is editable. But organizing the portfolio as a whole seems to be a non option. Even though that's crazy that DC Pro would not have that as an option. I am clearly doing something wrong, or the trial is not allowing me to use all of the functions the software offers.
Any insight or thoughts on this? Thanks for your help.
There is nothing like that trial would impact anything.
The purpose of trial is to use it effectively and then purchase after you are fully convinced.
I hope you are not accessing PDF' with Reader as it would not allow you edit PDF'.Reader does not allow you to edit PDF'.
Please do not get confused with the names, Acrobat Reader DC is Reader and Acrobat DC is Acrobat.
No I am positive I downloaded DC Pro... not DC Reader.
Do you have to "Add" all the options you want to you in your PDF before you create it?
Because I tried again by going to tools before I ever opened a PDF and all my options were available. So I clicked Add and create and multiple files and portfolio and combined and it made my portfoilo.
But now if I want to manipulate that portfolio in any way and I go back to Tools everything is GREYED out again!!
Do to know a good tutorial on how to use DC that I could watch. I found a 45 minute overview from Clink Funk online but it's way too detailed and I'm on a deadline... hence my crazy frustration!!
This is still StephanieChemTech... I don't know how i got on my boss' adobe or why?
Majority of tools are grayed out because they are non-functional for portfolio.
However you can edit the component files as follows:
1. Select the file that you want to edit.
2. Click on Open Document button. File will open in another tab\window.
3. Edit the file as needed.
4. Save the portfolio file.
