How to insert text in a NON-Editable PDF:
**note - before you begin, please know that the largest font size is 24, so I am showing you a reasonable sized item to place text on below**
First, you need to open your PDF document in Adobe Reader - I have Adobe Reader X. Once open, you want to click on the word "Sign" - please click on each image for larger view:
Now, under that section, you will see a symbol and the words "Add Text" - click on this:
Once you click this, a separate (detached) toolbar will pop up. Once this pops up, you will have to place your cursor on the area you want to add your text. You CAN NOT change the font, color, etc. until you have placed your cursor where you want it.
|place cursor, then you can change settings|
Now you have your area - go ahead and change your font, size, color, etc. to your liking. The size will only go up to 24 (pooey). Not sure if there is a way to change this or not - if you know, let me know...lol.
Once your have all your setting as you wish, begin typing in the area you want your text. For these little owls, I would like to place student names on their tummies.
We ALL make mistakes, so what if I do not like the way it looks or how it is placed? How to I remove it? Simple, just double click on the text and a gray box will appear around it - now press delete or backspace on your keyboard.
Continue adding text where you wish.
You are finished adding text, now just click the 'x' on the toolbar, print or save your document as usual.
Hope this helps someone in some way - now maybe all those PDFs that were uneditable will be easier to use!!! :) Let me know if you try it!!
