Hi tp72, 

Is this a file that someone else has shared with you? If it is due to permissions, you may need to save a copy of it to your local hard drive and edit the version that is on your computer. 

If it is your own file, is it possible that there are restrictions set on the file itself due to copyright settings or password restrictions? 

I would try to download a copy and edit from your computer, and try another PDF editor if available. There are some that are integrated with dropbox on the web as well.
