Insert special characters

You can insert certain special characters (line breaks, soft hyphens, nonbreaking spaces, and em dashes) in a tagged PDF to improve the way it reflows. You can also insert these special characters in any PDF to improve the way it’s read by a screen reader or simply to edit it for general readability purposes. You do not need to have the font installed in order to insert special characters.

  1. Choose Tools > Content > Edit Document Text.
  2. Click where you want to insert the character, or select text to be replaced by the character.
  3. Right-click the selected text or location, choose Insert and then select an option.
Note: Editing and saving a digitally signed PDF invalidates the signature.
