In order to edit the text, it must be converted from image to actual text. Luckily, Acrobat has the capability to do this for you. My first step is always to perform a ‘Save As…’ and give the file a different name. This preserves your original in case you’re unhappy with the results. Under Tools, select Enhance Scan>Recognize Text. You can experiment with the settings, but I would choose ‘Editable Text & Images’ from the drop down. Once you perform the text recognition, your text should be editable and searchable. It’s not a perfect transformation sometimes, as much depends on the clarity of the text of your original, font, etc.
Thanks for your input... The Enhance>Recognize Text option didn't work... but I seemed to have stumbled across a solution by trial and error..
2. Choose "Remove Hidden Information" (save)
3. Choose "Santize"
4. Tools>Edit PDF
All of the text then became editable..... Quite suprised myself !!
