How to delete items in PDF documents with Adobe Acrobat
You can quickly delete items in your PDF with Adobe Acrobat.

Adobe Acrobat provides powerful tools to manage and create PDF documents. Unlike the free Adobe Reader, Adobe Acrobat allows users to professionally create, edit and collaborate on PDF files. The application’s extensive advanced editing options include the ability to touch up both text and objects and also provide a quick way to remove items from documents.
