Question editing PDF files


I have a PDF form that I need to fill out and then print. Is there a way to edit PDF files or copy and paste the text to another application?

xpdf can open PDF files and copy+paste from them into something else. Also, KWord has some support for opening and editing PDF files, but it's not very good .

How do you paste pdf files? I seem to have selected my pdf text in xpdf by dragging my mouse. When I go into abiword and right click and select paste, it does nothing.

I got it-you have to middle click in abiword to paste.
