Default Pdf

I have adobe reader 8 and I want to answer questions in a PDF file that was sent to me so how do I make a PDF file interactive?

If theres no way of editting form the original, or no way of recreating it easily, then you r best bet is to use the 'Touchup Text' feature / toolbar.

Although, it isnt the best tool, its ok as a last resort (it breaks the file up a bit - especially if you are passing it on as a pdf again) if you want to quickly add a couple of things its ok..

You can find it in the toolbar at:

Tools > Advanced Editing > 'Touchup Text Tool'

Again, use it as a last resort.

Are you sure you're not meant to be running version 9? The PDF may be a PDF form - from memory version 9 of the reader and onwards can edit these forms whereas versions 8 and preceding can't.

I'd upgrade anyway - no reason to be running an old version of acrobat reader.
