> Hello, I have a mac with 10.6.8 and am trying to edit a PDF.  I was told to download
the Oracle PDF Import Extension for MAc and that it would import itself into OpenOffice. 
Then I should be able to open a PDF and open office wold be able to read the pdf and I could
edit it.  However, when I open a PDF in Open office it just looks like mixed letters and is
all broken up.  Please advise if I missed a step or if there are step by step instructions.

Did you install the extension into AOO?  (On the menubar Tools/Extension Manager/Add)

PDFs are not designed to be edited. They are meant to be permanent. The extension gives AOO

limited ability to edit them. The best program if you must edit them is Adobe Acrobat.
