Import PDF files directly into OpenOffice 3.0
If you’ve thrown away the original source for your PDF file — or just plain never had it to begin with, then you’ll probably want to take a look at Sun’s PDF Import Extension for OpenOffice 3.0.
It works by allowing the file to be imported into Draw and Impress — this allows for modest modifications to be made such as small text updates like dates, numbers, etc…
Obviously, if you want to make big-time changes — as always, you’re best to return to the source, but this is definitely worth a look-in.
It’s a beta feature only, and requires the OpenOffice 3.0 beta 2+ to work…. You can read me and download a copy from the OpenOffice extensions area at OpenOffice.org.
