    There's no FREE PDF editor that really works. Yes, some pdf editing tools are available on Sourceforge but believe me I tried all and no one works. As for a paid one I played with Wondershare PDF Editor while in Free beta some time ago and I really liked it - very easy to use, doesn't require Java or any other bloated runtimes and it works. Give it a try.

    edit 1: 3DPageFlip Free PDF Editor is freeware

    edit 2: I still have a copy of Wondershare PDF Editor free beta that works for 100 days. Tel me if you wanna try it.

    The fundamental problem with PDF editors is that the PDF format was created to be non-editable, but read-only. The best way to edit a PDF is to convert it to an editable format, such as Word or ODF.

    agreed.
    i like to use a PDF printer app such as doPDF to create PDF documents from any Windows applications that support printing.

    Yes, doPDF is excellent and free.

    As I keep telling everyone at work, Acrobat is not a word processor. Use one and then save as PDF.
