Re: Editing PDF files.

Another possibility is to get a PDF converter. Sometimes the formatting is pretty close. One of the best converters is from the same people who make OmniPage and who publish Dragon Naturally Speaking.
I used to own it personally, but now our firm buys it and puts it on our desktops.
I can tell you editing PDF files in Adobe is no cakewalk, according to my assistant -- with 20/20 vision.

Problem with comverting to Word or with Openbook is that the formatting is lost. Only way I know is to purchase Adobe Acrobat and edit the document directly. However I own the product and have to admit never editing anything, so cannot comment on how well it works with JAWS.

I NORMALLY COPY AND THEN PASTE TO A WORD DOC AND EDIT THE DOCUMENT. Once I
am through with my editing I then convert it back to pdf from a program
that I downloaded (it's free) called pdfcreator. There's also another
converter called primopdf that's free that you can use to convert a revised
document back to pdf. I am sure there are converter programs out there that
will convert from pdf to word and then back (so you can do your editing),
but I have never found any that worked correctly that were free.

If you have open book you can use that, but it is not free sugar

Hi,
No, with Adobe reader you can't do it, but If you want to use Adobe, you
will have to buy Adobe Acrobat.
I don't know if there are free editors out there.

Best regards,

Adi Kushnir.

Hi folks! I'm needing to edit PDF files for the first time for my job.
I'm
wondering how to do this, since I've never done something like this. I'm
assuming you can't do it with the Adobe Reader by itself right?
