Manipulating text with the Edit Text & Images tool
Modifying graphics and page objects with the Edit Text & Images tool
Pulling text and graphics out of PDFs for use in other documents
You may assume that PDF files are mere pictures of your documents and can’t be edited, but nothing is further from the truth. Adobe Acrobat includes a variety of tools for editing both text and graphics. You can use these tools as long as the file hasn’t been secured to prohibit editing. We introduce you to the tools for modifying PDF documents in this chapter. We discuss security, which allows you to limit access to these tools, in Chapter 6 of this minibook.
You can access the tools for editing text and graphics by clicking on the Edit PDF icon in the Tools Center. (See Figure 4-1.)
