Chapter 4: Editing and Extracting Text and Graphics

Manipulating text with the Edit Document Text tool
Modifying graphics and page objects with the Edit Object tools
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 Tools⇒Content, and then you can find them in the Edit Text & Object section. (See Figure 4-1.)
