    Re: PDF Editing

    I would like to recommend PDF Studio (Standard or Pro). You can download a free demo version or the full (paid) commercial package from Software Center. The full version is not free but costs $80-$120 depending what additional feature set you need, but if works JUST like Adobe Acrobat, at a fraction of the cost. I found that when it comes to text editing inside an existing PDF file - it is actually better than Adobe Acrobat... They update the software all the time and add features. When I found a bug, I communicated with their tech support, that fixed and sent me a repair patch with 24 hours!

    Try google chrome or probably chromium.

    If it's just simple filling out form it has integrated pdf viewer and basic editing.

    It doesn't matter. Libre office is Open office with bug fixes and a few minor new features. Open office development basically grinded to a halt thanks to Oracle.

    *pdfimport perhaps?

    extensions site doesn't turn it up because it is supposed to be inlcuded in Libre office by default. i do not know why Ubuntu chose to not inlcude it. I too had difficulty finding the extensions and thought i was going mad until i got the idea to check for it in Synaptic. sure enough it was there. installed it and it works.

    i have a Libre office portable for win on a USB key. Sure enough the plug in is already included in that installation.

    Once you load the pdf import extension where can it be found in the menu? I haven't found how to actually use it yet...

    Re: PDF Editing

    PDF Studio by Qoppa Software is a really nice tool.
    But if you like to do some simple highlighting kind of thing, then you can give Okular a try
