    Does anyone know of any GOOD freeware for editing pdf files that have ALREADY been created. I'm not talking about pdf output printers - lots of those around. PDF editors I've come across are either not free or if they are, they're so crude I'd rather not use them.

    Because PDF is licensed by Adobe at what I can imagine is an abhorant rate, methinks you won't find any really good freeware.

    This is a pity - if no one has found anything I may end up buying retailware - which is rare or me :)

    I use openoffice it works great for creating pdf, but you can't edit an already made one.

    Right. All the apps I've seen usually create PDFs out of other documents. Adobe Acrobat seems to be the only one that can edit PDFs and add form fields etc.
