Hi imad,.

We have a work around for this problem. I hope that it will work in your scenario.

Print the PDF using "Adobe PDF". Edit this new PDF instead of the original one.

Steps to follow:

1. go to file-> Print. (Ctrl + P)

2. Select 'Adobe PDF' as the printer.

3. click on print. Save in any desired location when prompted.

4. open the new PDF.

5 edit.

Let me know if this helps.

    I can't seem to edit PDF files in Adobe Acrobat, as it says the files are protected and I need to enter a password of Permissions?

    If the files have a permissions password, you must know it and delete security, before you can edit the files. That is right.

  • Is it possible to 'ring' selected numerical values easily to an editable PDF file with Adobe Acrobat?

    Hi guys,.

    I work in the film industry and we are looking to use Adobe Reader to create sheets of digital camera report that will connect the crucial information for the editors/vfx production on a highly publicized movie shooting this year. Usually this is done with sheets of paper carbon-copied, but a new trend is to make digitally in order to facilitate life for everyone.

    One of the things as facts easily on paper is the selected circle takes so the laboratory handling film knows how to treat film: this can save a lot of time and money. Shooting digitally the same thing applies, transcode only you some takes, and it makes it easier for everyone.

    My problem with design sheets is implementing in a pdf editable using popular software, the most popular of them are Adobe Acrobat. A numeric value that represents a number to take will be in a column in the pdf file, and I need a way of circling this value to basically a click of a button or similar. Is this possible to do with Acrobat?

    One of the other things it is easy to do on paper is to draw a distinct line when a roll of camera/memory card is changed, if there is a way to make a line in a table "BOLD" again, the click of a button, which would be extremely useful!

    Thanks guys, I look forward to hearing your suggestions!

  • Edit PDF files in Adobe Acrobat X 1 Standard

    I bought acrobat standard adobe 11 after using acrobat adobe 7 for awhile and I'm unable to find certain functions that I used a lot in the past.  If all goes well, can someone give me advice regarding if the features I need were outputs from Adobe 7 or how I can find them in XI.

    There is no available tab ("paper"), which gives you options to insert, extract, and other features of doc related type.  In addition, there is a tab of the options in the old adobe to insert (and move) - arrows, lines, ovals, rectangles, etc, and also a typewriter function allowing easy movement in the document.  XI, there is a function to add text, but it is not very user-friendly (hard to move typed data).  In the old adobe, I had (7), there is also an option to turn an individual page or the whole document, then save these selections from view if you wanted to.  This program is these or am I just missing something.  It just seems like it is not much, I am able to do as with the other adobe...  Forgive my ignorance in this area because there is probably something simple, I don't see any here.

    This installs under TOOLS. Except the stuff under COMMENT. For example, insert pages is under the PAGES of TOOLS section. For some reason any Adobe thought it would be easier for us all.

  • When I try to open a PDF file with adobe Acrobat reader Windows Media Center automatically appears.

    When I try to open a PDF file with adobe Acrobat reader, windows media center automatically opens. How to prevent this? I just want to open the PDF file with Acrobat reader.

    The solution I think. If you right-click on one of the files and select open the file locations it now combined the file with adobe reader.

    Yes - you simply need to change the associated file (and path) back to Adobe Reader.  (If that's your choice PDF reader.)

    If you did this:

    Press the Windows Logo and R key at the same time to bring up the dialog box RUN.
    Once you have the dialog box up, type in the following command and press OK...

    cmd /k ftype AcroExch.Document

    That he return with? Should be something like:

    AcroExch.Document = "C:\Program files (x 86) \Adobe\Reader 10.0\Reader\AcroRd32.exe" '%1'

    I use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC (free version), ScanSnap ix500 & MAC OS X.  I have many documents and statements I want to scan and would like to know how to reduce the size of the document to preserve the memory. I scanned a document, 1 page, converted to PDF format and save it to a folder on my computer.  The file size of the PDF file has been 371ko.  I can reduce the size without having to buy the standard Adobe Reader or Pro edition?

    How can I do this?

    Hi nickyc311,

  • Impossible to edit PDF files now

    I have Acrobat 5 and 9.4 on my machine. My work includes the duty to reframe and change PDF files on external resources. Lately, my problem is I can't open all PDFs with 5 where are all my editing tools. What do I need to get the files edit 9?

    I have Reader 9 on some machines with AA5 because AA5 cannot read a large number of recent files. If you need to change them, you're out of luck. There is a roundabout way is not that great and many wouldn't recommend it, but you can open the file in Reader 9 and then print the Acrobat Distiller printer. Don't know how this will work, but it might do the job. I'm also not what else you might lose. Tabs and such other markup will be effectively lost.

  • I cannot download a .pdf file using Adobe Acrobat module Disabling the add-on allows me to download the .pdf.

    I tried to download a .pdf file and open it with Adobe module in FF 25.0.1 and received a message that the file has been damaged and cannot be repaired. I called the Technical Support of the site, and they asked that I have try with another browser download (ugh!) and the download worked. I returned and disabled the add-on Adobe in FF and the download worked in FF also. Don't know who developed the add-on, but one who did, left a bug in the process.

    HI central_texan,

    Please upgrade to the latest version of Firefox by going on the subject of Firefox from the Firefox menu. If download hangs at the last minute (just before reaching 100%), the cause may be an antivirus software that tries to parse the file and during this process the instance of Firefox crashes. It can also occur when the download is corrupted. What I want to know is in the system requirements, which means "Firefox Extended Support Release".

    To resolve the issue, try disabling the analysis as follows:

    1. In the address bar, type Subject: config and press enter. The subject: config "this might void your warranty!" warning page may appear.
    2. Click on I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue on the subject: config page. A list of parameters must appear
    3. Filter the list by typing in the search bar at top. Enter scanWhenDone. Now you should find the preference.
    4. Double-click this preference to set the value to false.
    5. Then, try to download something and see if it still crashes.

    Please reply and let us know if this helped you!
