As a matter of fact, I hate Acrobat. Its snail-crawl speed really pissed me off. Compared with Acrobat, I'd prefer the little, light-weighted PDF editing tool, Wondershare PDF Editor. It is much cheaper and smarter. Whenever you edit PDF text, everything moves on smoothly. Just download the free trial version to see how it works. Both Windows and Mac versions are available.

You don't have to need Acrobat Pro. It's price is a little high. You can try Wondershare PDF Editor. While using this app, you should enable its OCR plugin.
So I need acrobat pro to do this, or is there another way? I am a student, so cost and functionality are both key. I am no expert....always end up with software purchases not doing what I need, and stuck. Advice? Thanks!
After deleting text, you can regroup the text in the original block or move blocks upward. If you find it's troublesome to do so, you can also convert PDF to Word, and then regenerate it to PDF format.
I understand editing is designed for small changes, and that alignment can become an issue with adding text. I'm guessing the same is true of deleting text.....is there a way to delete a significant amount of text and regroup the text so the deletion doesn't leave a gap on the page?
