Unable to edit PDF – The file you have opened complies with the PDF/A standard

Opening a PDF it got the following error.

pdf_read_only

Here is how you fix this. Go to Edit –> Preferences. Click on  “Documents” link in the upper left. Go down to “PDF/A View Mode” and select “never.”

pdf_read_only_preferences

pdf_read_only_preferences_never

I hope this helps someone else.
