Can I edit PDF files with any of the native tools on Mac OS X?

For many other reasons I use Neo Office instead of Microsoft Office. It's a free open source suite of programs from Sun Microsystems that does everything Office can and more. It reads and writes all the office file formats including the older ones from a time when Mac PowerPoint files were not compatible with PC PowerPoint files.... You get the idea. But one feature I rarely see mentioned is the extremely robust PDF export. So you can open a native .doc file (maintaining all the Microsoft formatting) and then export as a PDF with complete security, font, compression, and versioning control, none of which the generic printer PDF export does.

Edit PDF: All You Need to Know

HTML on the main page. For my purposes, I am not interested in the latest version, so I install an older version that supports exporting as PDF. For example, the latest version of Neo Office 0.2.11 has the following Export Options: Option “Export as PDF” “Yes” And here is the command line for it: NeoOffice.exe OC pd.pdf -o pd Which will create pd.pdf file containing just the pd file. If you find that Office refuses to export as PDF then here is how to override that behavior: In your Office shortcut folder, create a new shortcut named NeoOffice_OEM. Doubleclick the file. In the list of possible file extensions, add .pdf. You also need to add a dot on the end of the URL. Example: neo_office_pd.pdf Then use whatever PDF export software you want to use instead of Office. What are the advantages? To take a quick overview, here are some of what are the biggest.
