Why does Acrobat Pro X only edit certain PDF files and not others? I would think it would allow text editing on all documents I scan, but it does not. What are the restrictions on which documents one can edit text and which one cannot(assuming all are PDF files)
When you scan, you need to run OCR first in order to be able to edit the files. When running OCR, make sure you select the "ClearScan" output format - you cannot edit when the recognized text is stored behind the scanned image. However, with Acrobat X, you will have a much harder time to edit scanned (and OCRed) documents than with a newer version of Acrobat. Both Acrobat XI and DC came with big improvements for this particular workflow.
