I think this is an easy answer but I just started using Acrobat X Pro and I've created a fillable form starting with a word document. How to I re-edit that PDF? I don't seem to be able to find that option.

To edit static text you need to use the Edit Text & Images tool. To edit form fields you need to go into Form Edit mode.

Some of the text and I want to add some more items to the form. It's a request form that I'm working on for the company that I work for.

It's important to realise that the editor in Acrobat, useful as it is, is for desperate last resort. Trying to use it for repeated or serious editing will lead to pain and frustration. Just don't. Don't get into that situation: have an original document, which you edit in Word or InDesign or whatever. Making a new PDF takes seconds and saves you pulling your hair out.

I have never taken an actual course but have always made fillable pdfs starting with a word document.  This is good to know, i am not missing something.
