BUMP

You don'y have to 'bump' The question has 15 DAYS. If there is no activity after 15 days, then the question expires. Bumping after 2 hours does nothing

oh, well is there any way i can keep the text i enter into a pdf from dissappearing because i have three more days to submit this document

Brian Marine, you could import the PDF into LibreOffice Draw via the libreoffice-pdfimport package extension. I have done this on many occassions to begin editing, save for later, and finish editing PDF documents. As an alternative, Google Docs has a reasonable PDF import/export functionality.

Can you help with this problem?
