    Hello again!!!! :)

    Since d/l and installing Adobe reader 9, I am unable to save a document. If I email the document to myself, then I can save it, but if I try to save it from the original page, when I click on File>save as, I get no response. Any suggestions how to correct this? :confused:
    Thanks..

    Your case is little bit like mine, my adobe can't save as Word document but text one. There's no drop down options for me to save as doc files. Maybe we haven't download a right version. So I use a PDF to Word converter ro realize it. For the adobe acrobat is expensive maybe you can use the Foxit reader which can edit PDFfiles in more aspects.Of course including save it.

    Adobe Reader is NOT designed to save any PDF file as a Word document. The save as text has not been around that long.

    The conversion of a PDF file to a word processor, one needs to have a third party converter, or in most cases just copy and paste from Adobe Reader and paste into your word processor.

    There are online file converters that can convert pdf to text or whatever file you need.
