In my case PDFs are one of the best most portable file formats. I use them extensively for anything 
I scan and save. I never expect anyone to edit PDFs I create but I often get editable ones as forms 
that I fill out and save and send back. Best is that even old versions of the files can be read by 
new versions of the SW. It's a perfect archiving format.

As for encryption, that also works well. 

I've never seen the excess blank pages or wide margins unless the person set it up that way.

As others have mentioned, PDF is a print format and not really meant to be editable in the same 
sense an ODT file is.

rom a PDF file, there's a lot of blank pages, gobbledegook,
extraneous lines criss-crossing, as well as extremely wide margins - all of
which not only wastes paper but makes for a quite messy printed page(s).

      So other than those who think they're ecrypting the data why does
anyone use a program which makes such a mess
