I want to replace all instances (around 534) of a word in my pdf file.

Currently I have to click the option replace with for every instance.

 

Is there any option or way like "replace all"  so that I click once and it replaces all instances of that word in single click ?

 

Please tell me if anyone knows.

Thanks and regards.

Acrobat is not a word processor or a desktop publishing system). so it's support for things that are easy to do in e.g. MS Word are not necessarily things that Acrobat is good at. It's always best to make these kinds of changes in the original application, and then convert to PDF. As an alternative, you can try to export the PDF as a Word document, make the necessary changes in Word, and then convert back to PDF. I am not aware of a method in Acrobat to do a find and replace all.
