    I need to remove information from statements I receive in PDF that I forward as PDF for reimbursement.

    In my Windows days - a few weeks ago - I would open the PDF on Paperport, select the sections to delete and resave before forwarding. Alternatively, I would print the PDF to a Winfax fax image, edit the image in Winfax and either fax or print back to PDF.

    A workoaround I used on the MAC was to convert the PDF to individual TIFF pages and edit these with CS3, and then convert back to PDF and reassemble. Way too cumbersome. (CS3 would not open the PDF directly because the original is protected)

    I am seeking a simple application such as paperport or the Winfax editor. Any ideas? Thanks

    You can open a PDF in Adobe Illustrator and edit it just like you want, then save it as a PDF.
