Did you try asking the client to send you .doc files instead? If the client cannot provide .doc files, then you’ll have to either obtain a pdf editor app or let the client know you cannot complete the job.

 Andrea, do you even have a contract with this client? If you go to My Jobs, is it listed under Active Contracts? If not, the client is asking you to do free work, so don't do it.

Andrea, dealing with the unexpected file type may be part of the test.

 

Your basic desktop "toolkit" should include a PDF editor. Free versions offer basic functionality, and you can get one that likely does most or all of the things you'll ever need, for $30-40 probably.
