I have made some corrections to a Word document that I previously made into a pdf document.
I saved the Word document to a new pdf with a new file name.
However, this time Adobe will not allow me to delete pages nor to insert pages nor to alter the text in any manner.
Those options are all greyed out.
I do not have the original word document on any kind of required permissions.
For some reason, the pdf has missing text at the top of 3 pages in succession. I'm trying to delete those 3 pages and replace them with a page one at a time. I had to do this once before to the earlier version, but that time I was allowed to add and delete.
Please tell me how to fix this annoying problem.
I should add that I have Adobe Pro 9
Did you add security to the document?
No I did not, at least not intentionally. I have checked the security settings in Word and they are unchecked. Is there something I need to check in Adobe as well? If so, what and how to I get rid of security?
In Adobe Acrobat look at File > Properties...
There is no security applied. All restriction options say "allowed"
Can you post a sample document?
You inadvertently created a PDF/A document. It's probably selected in your PDFMaker Joboptions settings. Now in Acrobat 9.x it is the default to view in "PDF/A" mode which does not allow editing.
To workaround the editing issue in Acrobat:
1. Go to Edit>Preferences>Documents>PDF/A View Mode
2. Select "Never" from the pop-up menu.
3. Click the OK button
Now you should be able to do what you need to do.
Are you talking in Adobe or Word? I'm not finding those settings once I open preferences.
"Disregard. I found it and it worked. Many, many thanks.
In the preferences of Adobe Acrobat.
