       Thank you for this information -
            I did not realize that PDFs were not merely a strange sort of
word document  ;-)
           (I have not liked PDFs;
          & have not understand the continual use of them - although some
seem to encrypt them)

​About removing blank pages, there are tools for that :)

The other things, anything involving elements position, is trying to fight
against the format and will always rely on black magic.​ Remember that
while word processing software sees paragraphs, a PDF sees only symbols
placed on a page. Sometime these symbols are whole sentences, sometimes
single letters with no relation to others beside being relatively close to
each other.

       oops ... nuts ... ... ...  ;-)

       When I responded to his message, I was hoping there might now be a
good program which would eliminate all the gobbledegook which happens
through this method;
           will there ever be a program which will allow for editing these
inane PDF files without messing up the original intent???
       one which would allow the simple deletion of those excessive blank
pages ...
           the ability to fix the margins allowing for less wasted space
          the ability to eliminate the extraneous lines which criss-cross
throughout the document ... ... ...

I was reading there is an extension you can download for Open Office
which allows you to import a PDF file and then edit that PDF file.

This extension is part of the default installation of LibreOffice. You
only have to try to open your pdf file from the File > open menu of
LibreOffice to open the file in the Draw module

Best regards.
