PDF Editing Mixed Style Text Boxes

Here is a sim­ple tuto­r­i­al on how to edit text box­es with mul­ti­ple fonts/styles in them in a Dig­iluxe PDF tem­plate.

Once you have installed the newest version of Adobe Reader and downloaded your template from your Etsy Purchases Tab — begin with step one.


  1. Open Adobe Read­er!
  2. Click FILE > OPEN and nav­i­gate to the tem­plate you saved and then CLICK > OPEN.


Some­times it is nec­es­sary to include mul­ti­ple styles or mul­ti­ple type­faces in one text box to add inter­est. Edit­ing this type is very sim­i­lar to edit­ing a full line of type, but in order to keep the hid­den for­mat­ting in place, these lines need to be changed one style or type­face at a time.

Instead of select­ing and high­light­ing ALL of the type in a text box or row, select only the sin­gle style. In this exam­ple, you can see that there is a larg­er type style at the top of the box and then small­er type in the same box right below it. High­light and change the groups of type indi­vid­u­al­ly. If you high­light ALL of the type at once, the for­mat­ting from the top lines of type will be copied over to all of the type.

You can see here that I changed only the larg­er type. The small­er type with­in the box would be high­light­ed and changed sep­a­rate­ly.

The same prin­ci­pal applies when there is  two dif­fer­ent type­faces or sizes with the same line. You can see CENTER TEXT above and below I have edit­ed only those words to read MY TYPE. Then I will edit the word EDIT indi­vid­u­al­ly and then the word ONLY indi­vid­u­al­ly by high­light­ing one word at a time.


Repeat the steps above for all of the mixed type lay­ers that are editable text with­in your pur­chased tem­plate.

Thank you for your busi­ness!
