    OpenOffice now can edit PDF

    Quite handy this new plugin from sun. it allows you to import PDF's and edit them directly in writer, a description follows next:

    The PDF Import Extension allows modifying existing PDF files for which the original source files do not exist anymore. PDF documents are imported in Draw and Impress to preserve the layout and to allow basic editing. It is the perfect solution for changing dates, numbers or small portions of text. Native PDF forms are not yet imported.

    (...)

    This is just a beta version and it requires the OpenOffice.org 3.0 beta 2 to work. Please help us to optimize this Extension, any feedback is important for us. Find details about the preferred channel in this
    GullFOSS article.

    Please test the plugin and report possible bugs, for improving this great feature.

    Needs OOo3, I hope it will be included by default for that.

    From what I hear PDF editing is one of the planned features of OOo 3.

    The beta is availalabe, and for a beta is quite usable. So we have no excuse to start testing this since it will be a "plus" for any user, IMO the great feature of the next Openoffice release, and eventually may promote user switch from MS Word, at least until next Office release (which i believe will enable edit and save PDF Files) .

    The propose of my thread is for the large comunity of Ubuntu, to test this important feature. Then people can't say, "it's a memory Hog" , "its slow and can't render well" , as it is said about other software. I won't say the name of that software, "coofffffirefox", "cough", "cough".

    3 seems to be a big number for the popular OSS
    Does anyone know if this is built-in to MS Office?

    MS Office has no capabilities when it comes to PDF.

    I actually don't like this. PDF's are not meant to be editted. Oh well.

    Then this will be instrumental in getting my mom to switch to OOo.
