Copied Microsoft Text to Adobe Acrobat X format- with the editing tools that are provided in this Program, was this copied text originally designed for Editing? (because this is much more difficult to do successfully vs. any PDF Original Text in it's Original format)! Any answers here?

Adobe PDF is initially not to be edited and editing the PDF is only a bad replacement for recreating the PDF from the source. However, editing features have greatly improved an Acrobat DC allows quite successfull editing sessions.

After pasting text into Acrobat, it is Acrobat text. There is no difference between original text and pasted text. editing features will be the same.

All's I can say is- most things come down to Trial & Error & with any topic.  On the Acrobat X Program with the Original PDF text- the editing was very simple & successful because I soon got a handle on the Instructions.  I believe from what you wrote earlier is that you have not had any direct experience into this.  It may just take a little more time vs. originally putting the text in Microsoft Word format then converting the entire MS Word file over,but it certainly does not hurt to learn new things either.

When editing the Copied Text over- the end-results of the Editing Tools were not the same as with the Original PDF Text so it could be that the Copied Text is not compatible with the Adobe Acrobat X Editing tools.  Incidentally, I did obtain difficult & poor results from the Copied text, so without any third party attempting to Edit any previous Copied & Pasted MS Word Text in Adobe Acrobat X format, one cannot offer any accurate opinion.  At least that is the way I see this issue.

Adobe PDF Text Editing for small quantities is acceptable, as it comes down to personal preference? I would not say what you stated.. Pasted text is much more difficult to do vs. Original PDF text.  If you try it on your own, you then will notice it!

If you do not attempt it, then exactly how will you ever know?

I say that as soon as text has been pasted, this text is Adobe Acrobat text. Anything you can di with the text, can be done. It’s not more difficult to select pasted text vs original text.

There may be a difference with typewriter text. I did not yet figure that out.

Is there any way on here that I can attach a PDF file that has everything in it (from my own personal experiences) with both the Copied Text & Original PDF Text?  Also included would be the Typewriter Text (from the right side) as well as the Text taken from the top (Text Box's 1 & 2).  Is it possible to send this complete Attachment right here?.

You can include a link to dropbox or similar. It is not possible to attach files to forum entries.

How is Option #1 accomplished? I cannot remember the exact details of two other separate & similar situations like this dropbox method.

Now I'm having great difficulty in attempting to change the Solid Outline Box to a Highlighted one which was unlike from earlier.  It now appears that editing text in PDF format may not be the way to go.

Writing new text in a blank PDF Doc. is entirely different- correcting individual spelling errors (as the User goes along).  If there is any new placement issue for paragraphs, the User would just do them separately, then saving it on that exact location & starting over with new placement starts with subsequent 'Saves', with additional repeats (*if necessary).
