Can I edit text in Adobe Acrobat?

Acrobat Pro.
I saved a Word doc. as pdf. For reasons I'd rather not get  into, I'd prefer not to edit in Word then re-save as a pdf (though I can do this if absolutely necessary).

I only need to do some tiny edits (e.g. adding a preposition, correctly a typo, etc)

Yes, but only if you have Acrobat full edition.

As you state you have Acrobat Pro you should be able to use the TouchUpText tool as long as the font is available on your system (it should be) and you are not expecting to be able to make edits that cause whole paragraphs or pictures to reflow.

TouchUp is simply that, a simple tool to add a few letters or delete the same. However and depending on the structure of the document you may encounter strange formatting behaviour like text not aligning correctly after edits. If that happens it may be worth trying the TouchUp Object Tool to reposition.

> something about text

What exactly is the message?

What release? Works fine here in XI.

Most likely a font embedding issue, how do you create the PDF? Print or save as?

Are you using any special font, there may be licensing restrictions that don't allow full embedding.
