The whole point of pdf is that they are a fixed format and cannot be changed, though of course some off er fields to be filled in. It is important for some copyright material that users cannot change the text for obviously reasons, indeed some are protected so well you can't read them with a screenreader, but thankfully not so much a problem now. More of a problem is the clueless who make picture pdfs where its just a picture of the text and these need to be run through an OCR to stand any chance of them being read at all.

You must edit it on Adobe PDF, the full version and not the Reader version, or in Microsoft Word 2016.

The best thing to do is open the file you used to create the PDF and work off of that. 

If that is not a possibility, then investigate if robo Braille can help you:

About all you can do is to do OCR on the PDF and copy and paste that into a word processor, like Word, and clean it up.

Which I can only second.   Very few home users have Acrobat (full Acrobat, not Reader) or any other full-featured PDF editor.  Most PDF files are created either by using the "Save as PDF" feature of a word processor or by using a pseudo-printer that prints to a PDF file, e.g., PDF Creator.

Find your source file, edit it in whatever native program you created it with, and do a "Save as PDF" or, if that's not available, download and install one of the many utilities that allows you to "print" to PDF.

Current versions of Word can save the scanning step. Find the PDF file,,
right click on it and arrow down to "open with" and select Word if it is
there. When it opens in Word, the program will ask if you want to open it as
a word document. Generally the conversion tool does a good job of preserving
layout. The exception is when a PDF document has fields for the user to fill
in. However, those are a problems as well with scanning.

Hey.

 

Use Microsoft Word, or OpenOffice Writer, instead.

Then convert to pdf if you have to.
