Postby parx24 » Sun Aug 08, 2010 11:23 am

I received a PDF document that I need to complete.
How do I do that with OpenOffice?

You don't. You print it out, fill it in longhand, and send it back by snail-mail.
PDF documents are not intended to be readily alterable and those who sent the document to you should be aware of that.

Another possibility is to open it with a PDF reader, then if the fields can be filled in, type the information. Then, print the completed PDF with a virtual printer (like PDFCreator) to another PDF.

Please add '[Solved]' at the beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.
