My first time with PDF other than using Adobe Reader to view PDF.

I am using PDF 5 to convert music sheets to PDF format so that I can read the music on a monitor and play my keyboard, doing away with music books.

I have scanned about 800 lead sheets and have them in a PDF Package and they view proper in Adobe Reader.

My problem is the ability to edit the index (not the Source Document) shown TO the left of the lead sheets.

With PDF 5 open and right clicking a title you have the option Edit Value > Name or Description. Changing the name i.e. I've to Ive and trying to save crashes the computer.

I try to convert to another program to edit and it does not convert readable text.

Have tried to get assistance from Nuance but they will not help as I purchased the program on Ebay new in a sealed box (PDF 4 and PDF 5). If they did give support it is rather expensive. Especially for those learning a new computer program.

Would appreciate assistance from anyone owning this product as there is no support forum at Nuance.

Also I would appreciate anyone's recommendation for a simple program to scan music and package as PDF with the ability to edit the index as this is the only function I will ever need.
