Could anyone tell me how to edit .PDF texts? I know that Adobe has a software called Distiller, but it is toooooo expensive. Is there anything else? Thanks.

PDF could not be edited Sep 20, 2002

I am afraid you cannot edit .PDF files unless you have source they were produces from (e.g. FrameMaker or Page Maker files).

Expensive but worthwhile Sep 27, 2002

Hello,



In fact Adobe is a bit expensive but really worthwhile. It is very easy to work with and enables us to do quite a few things apart from translating graphics and other material when there is no other format available. For people working on proofreading, this program also enables to highlight text to be changed at DTP stage when proofreaders cannot touch the text it self. I have bought it last March and it has payed itself already.



Might be something to consider and to put on the list of \"things to buy\".



Hope this is useful

Best regards,

Mónica

I'll give it a second thought. Oct 1, 2002

Probably I\'ll have to buy it in the near future regardless of the cost. Thanks.
