My scanner allows me to scan a document as save as rtf. It needs cleanup (no, it's not particularly pretty), but at least you have text to work with. This might help you in your situation, Tammy.

Unfortunately I do not know of anyway to edit a pdf graphic. I have, however exported the graphic pdf into a tiff format, then converted that tiff into text using OmniPage Pro. It works good, but you lose any formatting. I reformat the text to match the original file, make whatever changes needed, then regenerate the pdf. Kind of the long way around, but it works.

I will admit it - I am weak in graphics. How on earth do I edit this Case Number? What tool do I use - What format do I open it in so that I can edit it and save it back as a .pdf or??? I don't want to have to scan the form again in some other form other than .pdf, edit the file and the rescan the edited form in a.pdf format. That means I would have to reset the field
functions for each and every field on this 32 page form and I have already wasted too much time on this effort as it is (/rant)
