I think the problem is you're trying to use Acrobat to make PDF. It seems logical, but it's not how that is done.
Thank you very much for your response. If Acrobat is not the way to create a PDF what would be your suggestion. The following is from Acrobat manual
Create a blank PDF
You can create a blank PDF, rather than beginning with a file, a clipboard image, or scanning.
This process can be useful for creating a one-page PDF. For longer, more complex, or heavily formatted documents, it’s better to create the source document in an application that offers more layout and formatting options, such as Adobe InDesign or Microsoft Word.
- In Adobe Acrobat DC, close all open documents.
- Choose Tools > Create PDF > Blank Page > Create.A blank single-page PDF is created.
To add a blank page to an existing PDF, open the PDF and then choose Tools > Organize Pages >Insert > Blank Page.
That's a way to create a blank PDF, but that's about it. Might have special uses, such as adding form fields.
The key thing about making a PDF is you make it in WHATEVER APP YOU WANT. Word, InDesign, WordPerfect, Visio, GardenPlanner, PhotoAlbumMaker, whatever. Then you print it to a PDF (or use a premium conversion method). You keep the original, and whatever you change it you change that ORIGINAL.
PDF editing, I like to say, is a desperate last resort, for when the original is lost, and the backups were eaten by termites. It's kind of miraculous that we can edit PDF at all, but it's never pleasant.
What can you see when you move the mouse cursor to one of the edges of the image?
Yes I can see the edges and the Square handles are there. I just cannot snag them.
The image is out of the limits of the page.
Your question also spurred me to do some additional testing.
It seems that i can resize and object as long as the image was brought in prior to
any comments being made. Once I put a comment on the page, I could paste but not Size.
I tried a few files however sometimes it worked and sometimes the same issue I had originally.
Again must be some steps i am taking out of sequence.
Well, I think you're just doing something really REALLY unusual, which was perhaps not tested properly.
