Topic: Urgent please - Cannot change the font on a text addition to a PDF Document
Conf: (P-PDF) Beginners, Msg: 116749

Our Printers have produced a document in .pdf Format onto which we need to add a few lines of additional text.

I have added the text easily enough using a combination of the Free Text Tool and Text Select Tool. However both the font type and size needs amended and though I've hunted high and low on the Acrobat Help Files and various Sites I cannot manage to do this :-(

I've tried selecting the text using the Touch Up Text Tool (so I can use the Touch Up Properties Dialogue) but when I right click on the text all the options are greyed out on the shortcut menu - though this does work on the rest of the document i.e. on the original text and not the text I added.

Also tried to find a Properties Bar but again nothing seems to happen when I hit (Ctrl + E)?

Help please.

I have the full version of Adobe Acrobat 5. Thanks in anticipation
