Not Adobe Reader no. You can do that with Adobe Acrobat.
I used to have this ability through an older version but with the updated
version I don't seem to be able to. Do I have the ability to download an
older version so that I can do this?
What you probably had was an older version of Acrobat and not Reader. Reader has never had this ability.
All you can do is look for your old install disks if you still have them and reinstall Acrobat or purchase the new version of Acrobat.
