[Solved] Reading and Writing PDF Files

Postby capitolist » Tue Jul 01, 2008 2:52 pm

I wonder if Openoffice Writer can be made to read and write Adobe PDF files?

OOo can export as PDF, supporting the internal hyperlinks like TOC, bookmarks, cross-references (which is not possible with virtual printers like PDFCreator, ...).
OOo will be able in the 3.0 version to import PDF, see here: OOo 3: A PDF viewer alternative?

Thanks to add '[Solved]' at beginning of your first post title (edit button) if your issue has been fixed.
AOO 4.1.5 on Xubuntu 18.04 and on Windows 7 (with winPenPack port).

The Sun PDF import Extension is ready for beta testing now. it works with OOo 3.0 which is also in Beta. So don't use these for valuable work, they are for evaluation and test purposes only.

From the Sun description of the extension:

The PDF Import Extension allows modifying existing PDF files for which the original source files do not exist anymore. PDF documents are imported in Draw and Impress to preserve the layout and to allow basic editing. It is the perfect solution for changing dates, numbers or small portions of text. Native PDF forms are not yet imported.

Note: Sun suggest that this is suited to making small changes - they're not trying to replicate anythng near the functionality Adobe Acrobat, and for now it works in Draw and Impress only, not Writer.
