Help with Adobe reader please.

I am in the process of updating my cv and employers have asked me to send through files in PDF format. When I change my documents from doc format I find that my page breaks change and so my CV looks untidy. When I try to edit the file I am unable to do so in PDF. My question is "How am I able to edit my files when doing so with PDF files?"..................-
......Have version 9.1? Thanks

PDF isn't designed as a format you should be editing.You are best off to keep a copy in your Word processor and export it to PDF everytime you make a change - think of it as printing to an electronic file that can then be attached to an email message

Yup as above. Export your doc to pdf.

Page breaks don't change. Are you using blank lines as page breaks perhaps?

Fairly likely the PDF export is defaulted to Letter paper size, while the Word doc is for A4. Should be a simple matter to change the output paper size in whatever PDF export tool you're using.
