How do I white-out or hide existing printing on a document? RUSH

Level 1
Level 1

Hello, I'm rushing to complete a project, and I was given a PDF document to fill out by hand!!! No way with my writing. I converted the PDF to a PDF form. The PDF has some text and lines that interfer with the text fields I added in LiveCycle. How can I cover-up, white-out, or hide these unwanted lines and text?

Thank you!

Instead of using LiveCycle you can edit the form in Acrobat and select 'Detect form fields' when prompted.

If this is just a quick fix to get the form filled try this:

Change the Field FIll colors to White, and that will blot out the text underneath. In LiveCycle you can also create Rectangles (Change Fill and Border to White), to block out other text, lines, etc. Look on the Object tab

In Adobe Acrobat Professional the fields can be changed to White as well, and Acrobat Pro is alot simplier than LiveCycle, but sometimes we make do in a pinch so I totally get it.

Good Luck!
