The Ultimate Editing Guide


How To Edit Your Invitations Right At Home Using Adobe Reader

Alright, first things first.

You will need to get a PDF reader if you don’t have one already. You must have it in order to view, edit and print your invitations. The editing process is really easy and it will take less than 5 minutes to complete.

Download Adobe Reader for Free
This guide is meant for the new Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. You don’t need to download it if you prefer to use older versions and there is a separate guide for it here.

  1. Once you have downloaded your invitations, go ahead and open it up in Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.
  2. The first things you might notice are the highlighted boxes. Their main purpose is to indicate where the editable text fields are. Don’t worry about it too much because it will not print out anyway. I prefer to have them shown because I can see exactly where or how big the text area is.
    If you wish to hide it, you can do so:
    Windows – Edit > Preferences
    Mac OS – Acrobat DC (top left corner) > Preferences
    Once you’re in “Preferences”, click “Forms” in the list on the left and untick “Show border hover color for fields”.
  3. It is recommended to save a copy before starting in case you are not happy with the changes, you can always go back to the original file and start again.
    You are also able to access the file from “My Account” and download it 5 times within 30 days of purchase.
  4. It is really easy to edit the text fields since you can literally type in anything you want. The best thing is, you really only need to edit ANY ONE of the invitations on the page as the details will update themselves.
    The only text that does not update is the guest details. You might need to address certain guests to add that personal touch, which is entirely optional. If you don’t need to do this, simply delete all the text in the guests’ field.
    Did you know you can change the text and colour of your invitation?
    Yeap, that’s right! You have all the flexibility. All you need to do is bring up the “Form Field Text Properties” tool to edit the text size and colour. You can do so by going to:
    View > Show/Hide > Toolbar Items > Show Properties Bar
    With this nifty little tool bar, you are able to edit the text format according to you needs.
    I recommend you to use my embedded fonts as they are chosen to compliment the overall design.
  5. That was pretty easy, wasn’t it? You just edited an invitation without the help of a graphic designer! Once you’re happy with everything, it’s time to print it out! Go to File > Print

Excellent work! Make sure you check out these printing tips for quality prints at home.
