Hi Guys
Can any of the MS Office versions(2003,2010 etc) edit a pdf. Not covert it to a doc, but actually edit & save a pdf ?
Is there a MS plugin to do this. ??


Cheers

Hi guys. I found a few options
The issue will be when the pdf was created by scanning a document. The pdf not have txt, just a image of the txt.
This needs OCR in the converter & thats where issues can start . Google Docs appears to be able to convert a scanned pdf via OCR, but far from perfect

This seems to do a good job , so far, if the PDF is actually txt & not scanned txt (image of txt)

Freeware, easy to use, seems to do the job & appears to be malware/adware free
