Thanks for sharing the file but I can't check much in the attached file as it's not the original one.

If your PDF document is already in text format you can just click before that character and delete using the delete key if not please OCR the file by menu command Document > Recognize Text (OCR). After the complete text recognization, you will able to delete the character if the text is recognizable.

Thanks. I tried to work on a pfd received from a school and do not know if the relevant characters were in some text or "editable" box or mode. I solved the problem by simply deleting what I was forced to delete, then replacing what was deleted with the same thing slightly changed. I'll return to this issue if & when I encounter it again.
