PDF Document received - Can I add text to it?

  tAtu*! 13:24 31 Dec 10

Hi al, and a happy new year

I lost my phone and spoke to the insurance company who sent me a claim form via email in PDF format. Is there a way I can add text to the form thus enabling me to complete it in its PDF form and email it back? Or, will I have to convert it in some way? I have Office 2010 if that helps and Adobe Reader 9.

Thanks again

I have Adobe Photoshop and you can edit a .pdf in that.

PDF as to be run through OCR to be able to Edit Text

I have looked but there does not seem to be a great i.e free. Do you use any PDF to Word online converters?

OCR? please excuse my ignorance but what is that?

If you download FOXIT pdf, you can read the PDF document as standard , and it has an option to add a file to the PDF for your own input.

It also has many other advantages over Adobe software.

Download the file and save it to disk. Use PDF Exchange Viewer`s typewriter function to add text, save and send back as an attachment. click here

Optional - Remove Adobe Reader from your computer - not in the same league!

Another option, if you have a scanner is to print off the document, add the amendment and then save the doc back to your PC.

OCR Optical Recognition software Some Flatbed Scanner Software includes lite programs.

Lite i.e not Full Programs

if you have serif pageplus, they do a free download of a slightly older version than current, it can import pdf files which can be altered/added to then saved back as pdf.
