PDF File Problem

I cannot open a PDF with InDesign 2.0 for some page layout work. [ This is the first time I've used InDesign. ]

The PDF was created on a Windows PC via OmniPage Pro 15 and saved as a PDF file version 1.5. It needs editting in InDesign, since the OCR wasn't perfect.

How can InDesign 2.0 open a recalcitrant PDF? [ Adobe Reader 8.1.2 opens the PDF just fine. Photoshop CS (version 8.0) opens the PDF just fine. ]

P.S. When I say InDesign 2.0, that means 2.0.0. For whatever reason, I cannot download the updaters 2.0.1 and 2.0.2. Nor the SVG download.

Thanks.

1. You can't "Open" or you can't "Place?"
You can only place PDF's in InDesign.
2. You can't edit a PDF in any version of InDesign.
You have editing capabilities of a PDF in Illustrator or Photoshop.
You have optimal editing capabilities of a PDF with Acrobat.
In this scenario InDesign is not the appropriate tool.

OK. Thanks. I will try placing a PDF into Acrobat. Stay tuned.

Your only choice will be to "Open."
With Acrobat (not Reader) you might want to try the built-in
OCR to see if it will clean up the previous OCR of OmniPage.
