I need to edit the pre-written letter since we have two elves. I can’t copy and paste it to the blank pdf file. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong but I can’t customize it for some reason.

IT keeps saying READ ONLY for the Elf letter.

Hi Gina! You have to make sure to download it. Then find where you saved it and open it in Adobe Reader. If you open it in a browser or most other programs, it won’t work. Hope this helps!
