Annotator pdf Output with Editable Text

I'm posting this query from another Agilent user, that was posted on our internal forum. Perhaps someone can help: Annotator pdf Output with Editable Text I would like to be able to produce Adobe Pdf output from Annotator with Acrobat editable text. I have Adobe Acrobat 4.0 installed and can print Annotator to the PDF Writer, but all the text comes across only as vectors and so cannot be edited, searched, touched up, formatted... Vectors for lines work great for the line drawings but make trouble for the text. I tried embedding fonts in the pdf file and using more standard fonts like courier in Annotator, but that didn't seem to help. One goal is to more easily produce data sheet drawings from Annotator output. The pdf files can be loaded as vectors into the Adobe Illustrator data sheet software, but the text vectors must now be deleted and the text reentered to have formatting control. dxf output can also be uploaded into Adobe Illustrator as vectors with editable text. But the dxf file conversion out of Annotator is not clean: line types change: phantom lines become visible, output is in color... The Pdf Writer output looks far superior, except for the vectorized text. Is there any EASY way to produce pdf files from Annotator with Acrobat editable text?
