Editing PDF Documents - in OpenOffice 3

Acrobat Reader .pdf files are notoriusly difficult to edit when not in form enabled format or lacking the resources to buy software to edit these files. Open Office 3.0 has recently added a feature to edit .pdf documents in the most recent major upgrade in an additional SUN PDF Import Extenstion. I have yet to test it out on a patron computer or on a Mac OS X, for folks who are filling out forms that are not form enabled in a .pdf version, but wonder if others have found much luck with it??... Apparently, it uses the graphics editor as the engine to do the editing of .pdf doments... Here is a link to the feature listed on the Open Office 3.o web page. Originally found on Unbuntu Forum.
