I have a file that I want to remove all dollar signs ($) from a PDF (ex: find $ and replace with );How do I do this?

I can't seem to find/don't think there is a Find & Replace dialog box (anywhere).

Is there another way I can do this?

The document has been OCRed and I need to remove the dollar sign before moving to word/excel...

Infix PDF editor from Iceni. It's like a word processor for PDF documents, supporting search and replace.

The Adobe Acrobat Viewer cannot edit PDf files. Adobe and other companies sell products that can. There are also Free PDF editors available.

See Wikipedia's List of PDF software
