Default Modifying PDFs

Any advice on how to change a pdf document without having the adobe software (just reader)? I can't figure out how to convert it to another program without expensive software. Is there a way to do it? Say to Open office? Thanks

Yeah, its weird. There only seems to be programs to pay for, for example ones that convert to Word, or programs like that.

For example:

I don't know if Open Office does though, but I doubt it without that type of convertor above.

Pdf is limited in many ways for it's compromise to save space.

Open Office doesn't :P Silly Silly, in 95 they didn't have PDFs

If you want to Modify a PDF... you will need the software. You don't need to buy it though. Download a Trial and do the work in 30 Days. Or of course, get Macromedia Flash on Trial, and rewrite the File in Word, then make a PDF out of it in Flash, it has a Toolbar for Word that will do it. Nothing but Adobe Professional Edits them though.

Yeah, but that is not really Modifying a PDF. It is a long way around, but in theory if you could then make a PDF of that file, it would work.

Easy PDF? Never heard of it. Does it work as well as Adobe Professional?
