  • Insert text. Select the Touchup Text Tool and the line of text you need to change, and then choose Fit Text to Selection from the context menu.

As a matter of fact, I hate Acrobat. Its snail-crawl speed really pissed me off. Compared with Acrobat, I'd prefer the little, light-weighted PDF editing tool, Wondershare PDFelement. It is much cheaper and smarter. Whenever you edit PDF text, everything moves on smoothly. Just download the free trial version to see how it works.
