The Content editing tool is capable of editing text that is a part of the PDF. Text can be moved, edited, deleted, or redacted using the content editing tool.
Note: Not all text displayed in a PDF is considered text content. In some cases the text may actually be an image or even path objects. Text content that is either a path or image will not function the same and have limited editing abilities.
Move or Edit the text by doing the following
Text Content contains the following property settings:
Font – choose a new font for the selected text from the list
Note: When choosing a font only fonts that are embedded in the document can be selected. In addition, if the font is subsetted not all of the font characters may be available and may show up as either an incorrect or missing character when editing the text.
Text Color – change the color of the text
Outline Color – add or adjust the outline of the text
Text Size – edit the font size
Outline Width – increase or decrease the width of the outline
Character Spacing – increase the space between each letter
Horizontal Scaling – increase or decrease the spacing between each letter
Word Spacing – increase the space between each word
Baseline Offset – move line of text above or below the surrounding text; create super- or sub-scripts
Text – change the wording of the text
Cut or Copy text by doing the following
Delete or Redact text by doing the following
Note: The Redact option in Content editing functions exactly the same as using the PDF Redaction and will completely remove the selected text and replace it with a black bar.
