Yes, but it depends what program you're looking at it in. In 'Preview' on Apple OS, you just click the 'Show Inspector' tab. Sorry, I don't use Adobe but there must be a similar function. If the worst comes to the worst, send me the file (assuming its non-confidential) and I'll tell you the answer.
