      I'm no expert either, but I'm pretty sure you can't modify a pdf. I think that's the whole point of converting something into a pdf...it can't be changed or reformatted. I have heard of programs that can convert text in pdfs into word but I'm not sure what it's called and I bet they're pretty pricey. What kind of template are you looking for? Maybe someone has it in editable form.

        You can sort of adjust some text, but it's messy. If it's mostly text, you can select all the text & copy & paste it into word & then just redo it. Not that simple though. PDFs are not great for templates.

          You could layer a PDF under your document (open it and then type over it.. ) then remove it before printing... where did you get it? Maybe that person has a native file format for you to use? Or..we might be able to locate a different template for the same project.

            I believe there are different versions of adobe - one where you can view documents (usually free version) and the full version (must pay for). Wonder if that the difference

              reader is free & allows you to view docs. the full version allows you to make pdfs.
