is it possible to edit/draw on a pdf?

Asked by Phaedra Ford on 2011-03-25

I opened a pdf of a study exam, multiple choice. I was wondering if there was a way that I could mark the answers on the pdf and save it? Or even just write on it?

Yeah, use Draw, and click File... Export as PDF.

I cannot open the pdf in OpenOffice Drawing. It asks me about ASCII properties, and changing the font. If I click okay, it opens as a document with random symbols.

you can install pdfedit and edit pdf

1. i tried using pefedit. it's a horrible program that doesn't do anything.

2. draw can edit pdfs with openoffice draw or libreoffice draw. openoffice draw has very limited capabilities though. libreoffice draw is superior. you should install that. once installed, you load the pdf into draw and add any drawings you want and save it back to a pdf.

I've been using Xournal to edit my pdf files. Nice program.

Can you help with this problem?
