Why can't I edit my document

I created a pdf file and now can't edit it. Why is that? I am a bit rusty as I haven't worked in 9 months, help!!

Hi Dawn,

What type of editing are you trying to do? And what version of Acrobat do you have? If this is a PDF form you want to edit and you have Acrobat X or XI you need to put the form into Edit Mode (Tools panel - Forms Pane- Edit). Did you ever apply security to the PDF ( File-Properties, then look under the Security tab to see if all editing is allowed)?

Hope this helps,
