I recently bought Adobe Acrobat X, I believe it is the Pro version as that is the version that was listed when I bought it at my school.
But, I am now wondering if it really is the Pro version, because I am having such a frustrating time trying to edit the color of PDFs (mostly journal articles) that I need to read for my classes. I need to edit the text color because they are always in black, and since I have so many articles to print, it makes my black ink run out too quickly. I have been able to do this before, fairly easily with computers at school and with a trial version of Adobe Acrobat I had used last year.
But now it is very difficult to edit the text color. I do not see any option for "Advanced Editing" in the Tool menu. So sometimes I try to use the "Edit Document" option from Tools menu, then I right-click and Select All. Then I right-click again, and choose Properties. From there, I go to "Text" and I can change the "Fill" color (even though it only works one page, sometimes even just one paragraph at a time). Then, the problem with that often times, is it displays the new color text, imposed on top of the old black text, so it looks blurry sometimes.
Other times, I use the "Copy with Formatting" option and paste it in word to edit text color there, but the formatting is not exactly the same, and is sometimes hard to read.
Does this mean I got a lower version of Adobe Acrobat, or do you know of other ways to edit text color?
I am quite frustrated as it has taken me hours to grapple with this. The whole point of buying Acrobat was so I wouldn't need to spend extra time going to computer labs at school to print these articles, and also to save money on printer ink.
I don't know what is going on with this Acrobat--do you think it is the Standard version instead of Pro? It does say "Pro" on the case, but I just wonder if it is some kind of limited version for students, since I did get it at a discounted student price. Or if there is some mistake, because I know this simple task was so much easier before.
Thanks for reading all my venting
