I've never needed to modify any PDF documents, so can't say what these will do for you - but you can always try them.

PDFEscape is an on line editor which uses your browser - but you need JavaScript enabled to do the editing : http://www.pdfescape.com/

If you have Open Office installed, have a look at the Sun PDF Import extension which may well let you do exactly what you want : http://extensions.ser...org/project/pdfimport
The whole point of a pdf is that it is protected from changes.

you have to add the protection though...

this can be done, i have done it before, just cant remmber the program

thanks huderon
The point of editable pdf's is that you can download a blank form, add to it, save and email back!
Unfortunately, there are few pdf "editors" that actually work properly.
I have had some success with Scansoft's stuff, but only sure way is Adobe Acrobat Pro!
Try Huderon's suggestions.
