Editing PDF files

By Jackie Boy ·
I have a pdf file created by someone else that needs changes made
to it. As I don't know who created it and don't have the type fonts
used to create it, how do I make changes and keep the format and
style of the original?

The basic answer is that you can't

by Deadly Ernest In reply to Editing PDF files

That's the whole idea behind PDF files, so no one can change them on you. However, a lot depends upon if they have password protected the thing and if you have the full version of Adobe Acrobat, or whatever program they used.

Usually a file that has NOT been password protected or had the protection settings activated can be changed if you have the same version of the software it was written in. Some of the Open Source PDF writers can open other makers software as well, but it still requires the security settings to be turned off.
