Hello I have a similar problem. I have a pdf that I need to remove some text from. I don't see anything that says OCR - when I tried to convert it to word the result was a lot of missing information and generally disorganized. Can you suggest how I can edit some text on this document? I am running Adobe Acrobat XI Pro.
