I have a PDF document with text and basic graphics (squares, circles, thought bubbles, etc.) behind the text. My goal is to change the colors of these shapes.
Here's what I've tried:
- InDesign 5.5 - File doesn't open, "Placing" it into InDesign only creates the document as an image. Not effective.
- Acrobat Pro - Doesn't have the capabilities I'm looking for.
- Photoshop 5.1 - Should have the "Paint Bucket" capabilities I'm looking for, but opens up in one layer. Would be tedious and sloppy to paint inside all those "R"'s and "B"'s.
- Illustrator 5.1 - The document opens up in enough layers for me to separate the shapes from the text, but all the shapes are on the same layer (in the same bounding box - like they're one image), so the "Live Paint" function doesn't work very well. (At least, as much as I know how to use it.)
I don't have access to the original (non-PDF) file, so I don't know where to go from here. Any help would be greatly appreciated! :)
