Re: [libreoffice-users] How to edit words and phrases in a pdf

I have used OCRAD to scanacontract to text for writer but Tesseract seems to get better results.
I found that PDFs produced from MSO I cannot edit, some I can't even print properly. Must be the format they are produced in. Interesting articles http://blog.konradvoelkel.de/2010/01/linux-ocr-and-pdf-problem-solved/ http://www.splitbrain.org/blog/2010-06/15-linux_ocr_software_comparison

If I open a pdf that contains encoded text I can edit the pdf text in
LO, but a pdf may not have text encoded in it, in which case you would
have to do OCR etc.

Hi :)
Normally when i open a pdf document in LibreOffice each line of text seems
to be contained in it's own text-box which i can then move around or
perhaps delete but i can't seem to edit the words inside the line, eg to
correct typos.

Is it possible to edit pdfs in the same way that we can edit Odts? Do i
need to add an Extension?
