Only objects (including text) in the current layer can be edited. I'm 
guessing that you're probably not on the correct layer. This particular 
document has 31 layers - that's quite a few to sort through. Open the 
layers dialogue (F6 or /Windows --> Layers/). From there, you should be 
able to figure out which layer you need to work with (you can turn off 
the visibility of most of the layers if you need to, etc.)
