Edit PDFsNovember 5, 2009 at 1:53 pm | Posted in Software | 1 Comment
If you don’t have access to the original file and need to edit a PDF, you typically need the full version of Adobe Acrobat or similar. If you just need to edit a little text occasionally, this can be an expensive solution.
However, if you use Open Office or Sun Office, there is a free extension that might help. It opens the PDF in Draw and lets you make minor changes.
Note that this is a basic tool and will not handle things like forms, tables, or the reflow of paragraphs. But it can handle fixing small text issues you may be tasked with. It will handle images and password protected PDFs (if you have the password).
A useful tool in the toolbox.
