There should not be an embed option in that menu.
The option you're looking for is called "Edit document text". It won't appear if the document is protected.

You're sure you have Acrobat X? Our screenshots are different.

You probably need to click on "Edit text&images" on your version, then select the problem paragraph, right click it, select "Properties" and make sure that "Subset" is NOT checked.

There could be many reasons and solving this via screenshots is nigh on impossible. Firstly we need to identify if it is an issue with the PDFs or with the installation...

Can you post a test pdf in which this does not work?
