User has brought me a pdf that needs editing. The doc has been form fielded, which I can edit. In other areas of the form, I can use my Touch-Up text tool to edit content. However, there are some areas of text, which I cannot grab with the Touch-Up Text Tool. Very strange. I tried to run Acrobat's OCR tool, but it prompted me that it couldn't do this, as the text was already readable. I still cannot get a hold of the text in this one line (See attached document where it says Bank" and 1400, 3). I tried to load the pdf into OmniPage, an OCR program, which it did load, but the page with this elusive text on it, came across blank!! I do not understand. Why can I not grab this text to delete it?

Two Passwords Are Better Than One: The Low-Down On PDF Security
