Adobe Acrobat XI lets users edit text and photos inside the PDF

Acrobat XI was announced on 2 October and is expected to ship later this month.

The software offers a number of functions that allow users to correct problematic PDFs without needing to go back to the source file.

The new PDF Editor means users can edit text natively within Acrobat. This can be used to fix common problems such as spelling or other typographic errors and reflow it, without leaving the program.

The new version includes Find and Replace, similar to the functionality found in editing software such as Microsoft Word or Adobe InDesign.

Adobe said it had also made its image editing tools easier to find in Acrobat XI.

The image tools could be a benefit when printers receive files that aren’t print-ready due to low-resolution images.

A user can move, crop, resize or replace an image natively within Acrobat, or make more sophisticated edits in an external program, such changing the colour space in Adobe Photoshop, then see the image automatically updated in the PDF.

On the Adobe store, Acrobat XI Standard is expected to be retail for $467 including GST, while the Pro edition will go for $709 including GST. Acrobat XI Pro is also available on subscription for $24.99 per month for a one-year plan.
