Editing PDF files with OpenOffice.org

With the new Sun PDF Import Extension people can now edit PDF files. For example it's very easy to change a typo, date, name, phone number, diagram, etc. In addition, the Sun PDF Import Extension can be used to reuse content from old presentations.

Once the extension is installed, the PDF export feature shows a new option at the bottom as well. With the Sun PDF Import Extension, OpenOffice.org allows creating so-called "hybrid files". These are PDF files that also include the ODF content, i.e. the original source document. As a consequence, everybody can view these hybrid files with a simple PDF viewer. However, OpenOffice.org users can also edit these PDF files without any information loss, since OpenOffice.org will simple recognize and open the ODF content instead of trying to import the PDF information. Please keep in mind that this new extension requires OpenOffice.org 3.0 Beta! It does not work with OpenOffice.org 2.x!

Since both OpenOffice.org 3.0 and the Sun PDF Import Extension are currently in a beta state, I'm curious to hear what your experiences with both tools are and how you're planning to use the PDF import feature including the hybrid file format (PDF including ODF).

BTW, please also read this note by Artem, so that you know how you should provide feedback to the developers.

I would like some tips on installing OO 3.0.0dev on Ubuntu 8.0.4. Maybe someone has a URL for such?

Hi!

In the Open Office 2.4 Help it says that for drop caps to go to Format, Paragraph, Drop Caps tab, but there is no Drop Caps tab that shows there.

Any idea why?

Thanks,

Bill
