you have "word" in parentheses. PDF is not the same as MS Word (if that is what you mean). Unless you have Acrobat Professional you will not be able to edit the PDF directly. You can however copy the text from the document into a word processing program (like MS Word) and edit the letter. And if necessary you should be able to republish to PDF format with the appropriate Word add-on
If the file is opened in Acrobat Reader you can not do editing. You have to use Acrobat Writer to do this. If you do not have Acrobat Writer, you have to download a free PDF Creator. If you are using a PDF writer to convert a word document to PDF format, save both files, that is- the Word document (or Excel worksheet) and the PDF file. This way, if you need to edit, you can go back to the original document and edit. Hope this will help. luciana44
With Acrobat 6 Professional -Select Tools > Advanced Editing > TouchUp Text Tool Next, click on the text line where you want to do an edit. Click-drag to select a string of characters and let your fingers walk the keyboard. Or, just start where you've placed the cursor. You'll find it somewhat awkward. PDF is not a word editing/processing format. If desired edits are few and simple the TouchUp Text Tool will suffice.

There is a problem with file association naming! Its pretty simple if you know what you are doing! In order for your other programs to see these files you need to right click on the file and use "open with" and select the program you would like to use. That sometime fixes the problem but what you need to look for is what it says after your file name example(name.tif, name.pdf, name.jpeg)and make sure that the new computer and its software is even compatiable with the old software. Try looking for an update at the software manufactures web site. The always have a support section for customers to keep there devices/software working properly.
