Answers / Edit PDF
In Acrobat 9 Pro, I can insert text using the typewriter, however all of the buttons on the toolbar are greyed out. I can't change the font, font size, or spacing. How do I make the toolbar active? The text can't be selected (except to click the typewriter and get the box around it).

First you add the comment text to the PDF. Then you need to double click on the added text to enter the edit mode of the text box.From Acrobat 9, help:
Use the Typewriter tool to type text anywhere on a PDF page. Organizations sometimes provide PDF versions of their paper forms without interactive form fields. The Typewriter tool provides a simple solution for filling out such forms. The Typewriter tool is like the Text Box tool, but includes a different set of default properties.
To change the text size, click the Decrease Text Size button or the Increase Text Size button. Or choose a typeface size from the pop-up menu.
To change the line spacing (leading), click the Decrease Line Spacing button or the Increase Line Spacing button.
Choose a color from the Text Color pop-up menu.
Choose a typeface from the typeface pop-up menu.
thanks, I looked that up on help. I can type (I've inserted the text with no problem), but I can't change any of the text properties.
