I have an extensive document that needs to be edited...

I REALLY need the find and replace feature of most word processors.  Since .pdf do not convert easily to Word, is there any solution that I can use?  Third party software, plugin, etc???

The doc is about 1100 pages long, and I would prefer not to have to use find, and manually change each entry!


Thanks in advance

You can do a find but Acrobat is definitely not a word processing application and was not designed to do batch search and replaces.
