How to edit your Invitation using the new Adobe Acrobat Reader DC

How to Open a Template

I recommend opening your editable template directly from Adobe Reader. To do this, firstly download your template to a folder on your computer and then open Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Once in Adobe Acrobat Reader click on File > Open.

Select your downloaded template and press Open.

What about the shaded boxes

Once you open your file you will see these shaded boxes on your template.

These boxes simply tell you where there are editable text fields and act as a guide to show you where you can type your own text. They won’t print out! so don’t worrie 🙂

Editing the Text

All fonts in my printables are already embedded in the templates, so you don’t need to worry about downloading and importing any fonts.

To edit the text, simply highlight or select my sample text that you want to change.

And then just start typing!

Changing Text Size

Most text fields will let you make the text size smaller (if you have more than my sample text to fit in) or bigger (if you have less than my sample text and want to make it stand out more).

To change the text size, highlight your text and press Control+E (or Command+E on a Mac) to bring up the Text Properties toolbar. Change the size on the toolbar.

If you get a little + sign at the bottom right of your text box, this means that your text size is too big – you will need to reduce the text size. Also check that you haven’t got any extra unwanted returns/enters after your text.

To remove hidden text & spaces, go to the end of your text and hit delelte several times until the + sign desappers

How to Save a Template

Once you have made your changes, you will need to save your file.

To save it, click on File > Save As

Make sure you save your file to “My Computer”. You can choose a “Recent Folder” from the list or select “Choose a Different Folder”.

Select a folder on your computer to save the file. You can also rename it if you like to something meaningful to you. Press Save.

If you are sending your file out for printing, you might also wish to save your template to a USB/flash drive here.
