Understanding how to edit text in PDF documents will empower you to take full advantage of its versatility. PDFs are traditionally used for sharing information, as each page contains plenty of information. Occasionally, these pages have text that needs to be corrected. With an editor like PDF Reader, you can easily learn how to edit text in PDF documents.

Using the text editing mode, text can be inserted at the current cursor location in the document.

Note: You may not be able to edit documents with security permissions, scanned documents, text in images, or text encoded in languages other than English.
Change Font Size and Color
It is possible to format the text within each text block using standard font settings, including font size and color.
