Unable to remove text elements from a document in Adobe Reader
When adding comments to a PDF document using the Typerwriter tool, it will not be possible to remove those comments when editing the document in Adobe Acrobat Reader [*].
The TypeWriter tool creates a text object that is part of the PDF content.
It is recommended that you use the Textbox tool in the Comment menu to add comments to a PDF document instead of using the typewriter tool. When editing the document later in Adobe Acrobat Reader it will be possible to remove the textbox comment[s] from the document.
To remove a Textbox comment from a document, follow the steps below:
- Right-click the Textbox comment to highlight it.
- Select 'Delete' from the context menu to delete the comment from the document
- When prompted, save the changes to the document.
Textbox comments will now be removed from the document.
[*] This is particularly important in the workflow of users who have to work with documents created or edited in Power PDF, who do not have the product installed themselves.
