Sun PDF Import Extension is an OpenOffice.org add-on that will allow you to modify 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.
The next development step will focuses more on the edit capabilities and less on layout by using the Writer.
The PDF Import extension will also enable the PDF export into a hybrid PDF file, which is a PDF with the embedded source file as ODF. Hybrid PDF files will be opened in StarOffice as an ODF file without any layout differences, while users without StarOffice can open the PDF part of the hybrid file.
Please help us to optimize this extension, any feedback is important for us.
