Although Adobe provide the PDF Reader as freeware, the full Adobe PDF suite is a document creation package providing the full publishing suite you'd expect. Unfortunately it's quite expensive. I've seen bits of information of products that convert word docs to pdf and vis-a-vis but I've not evaluated any.
I occasionally need to edit documents in pdf but I've not tried any yet.
If the consensus is that there really not to clever then I'll probably opt for
a converter to flip from a word document to pdf.
So far I've come across 'PDF Editor' and 'WinPDF' but I've not tried either as
yet. Any input is thus appreciated.
