Hello Irene, >I have some patterns that were sent to me in PDF format and Acrobat Reader >is the only thing that will read them. I would like to save these patterns >but I see no way that it will work. I would also like to shapen the images >and text. Can anyone offer any suggestions? You can't make changes to a .pdf file directly without having the expensive Adobe Acrobat program. You can, however, select text and graphics within Acrobat Reader, copy it to the clipboard, and paste it into other programs where you can then manipulate whatever you pasted. You can, for example, select an image in Acrobat Reader, copy it, and paste it into Paint Shop Pro or some other graphics program and sharpen it, resize it, whatever you need to do. Then you can save it as a separate file so you can pull it up again when needed. Unfortunately, you can't save the changed image back into the .pdf file using just Acrobat Reader.
