How can I make a pdf exported from figma editable in acrobat reader

I need to create a pdf that can be edited in Acrobat Reader. In other words, when I open the pdf, it recognises the text boxes and other elements and lets me change them as necessary. I can do this by exporting pdfs from other softwares, like photoshop, illustrator and powerpoint, but I can’t do it by exporting from Figma. does anyone have any idea if this is possible?

Hi Bernd, thanks for your reply, but it's actually possible to edit pdfs from Acrobat Reader. You can edit images, text and graphics that the Acrobat recognises as editable blocks. But when I export from figma, it doesn't recognise the elements as these editable blocks. However, when I use other software (such as Photoshop, Illustrator or PowerPoint, for example), I can easily edit...

No, you can't. You can only add comments and fill in form fields that have already been added to the file.

If you were to do it then you were using Acrobat, not the free Reader.

Actually, I often edit pdfs from Acrobat Reader... 😉 Yes, it's possible, as the example I attached here... the boxes open as editable. Except when I export from figma. But thanks for your reply.

Look at the title of the application. This is Acrobat, not Acrobat Reader... You have to pay for this type of functionality.
