Content Editing

The Content Editing tool allows you to edit existing content within a PDF. You can change the characteristics of text or content as well as move and delete image content as well.

Note: Annotations are not a part of the PDF content and so these cannot be edited by the Content Editing tool. To edit annotations see Editing Annotations.
