How to edit a PDF file with Open Office
Some months ago I’ve looked for a decent PDF editor for Linux. Results? Only an application called PDFedit was interesenting enought.
I’ve tested it on a simple PDF document (v. 1.0.1) and the result is amazing. With Open Office, you can rewrite a PDF, save it as Draw document and export the modified version as PDF format with the handy PDF conversion tool.
Since PDF is a widely used format, you can use tool like this to download documents that require some changes before print (e.g. a paper form) without awful cut-and-paste onto an editor.
