I've  done it  with  6.0 but some update killed it for a while. Now have 7.0 
and have not tried it  yet.

-------------- Original message from "Jon Paris" <Jon.Paris@xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>: 

The dumb question of the day: Can PDF documents be "edited"??? 

Yes - I do it quite often using Acrobat (any version except Reader can do 
it). But - I find that you have to be very careful about it as the layout 
you see visually is not the way that it is stored and (for example) deleting 
a character can cause mis-alignment in a completely different part of the 
document. In general I find it only works consistently if the original 
contains a (dummy) character string of the same length/font/etc. as the one 
I want to insert. Since the PDF is basically a text file I assume you could 
automate the process, but I haven't tried since I have Acrobat standard. 

I believe there are a number of tools free and for-fee that will do various 
conversions, but I have no experience with them.
