    PDF files


    Hi I have a question regarding pdf files.I have been saving printable forms on my external drive & just changing & editing info when needed.It was originally done in windows 8 on my old computer which suddenly died.I am now trying to open these forms in window10 & I am having trouble as it will not allow me to edit info on the forms dates etc .Is there a way I can change a setting or something to allow this to be edited.Thanks

    Hi, do you know which program you were using in '8 to accomplish this? It would have been sthg you installed - you would need to do the same in '10.

    Regular PDF readers cannot edit files - only display and print them - However there are more versatile programmes out there which can edit but they tend to be expensive - the best being Adobe Acrobat. I have found however, even early versions appear to work fine in W10 and I am using Acrobat 8 myself without any issues at all. There are also a number of free pdf programmes but I have found none as good as Acrobat although some may be OK for what you need!

    Agrred.
    Adobe Acrobat is good enough for me.
    But then I don't use it extensively, actually only once awhile.
