Specific use of OO.Org

Doug Rhodes
Hello,

    Difficult to get to you. I need a question answered. I have a older disc for OO.O vs.3.1 ?. I see there is a newer offering. My question is this (as I never really learned or needed to learn) all the apps of the old one. I have many, many PDF docs that have way too many pages in them. Adobe says I need to buy their Acrobat Professional XI or subscribe to their DC version for a monthly rate to be able to edit-(extract & delete)  unnecessary pages and blank pages that come with the user manuals that you get online. Is this possible to do with OO 4.1.4 ? I think that is what the latest version is? Or do I have to bite the bullet and buy their product?  (Adobe Acrobat DC )

I don't think OO is appropriate for that purpose. My personal
preference for what you describe is PDFsam (http://pdfsam.org/).
It's free and open-source.

With the correct extension installed, OpenOffice 4.1.4 (and earlier versions) will permit minor cosmetic editing of PDF files; however, for serious editing, amounting to reconstruction of such files, as you outline, it is not a good tool.  You should either acquire Adobe Acrobat or some other PDF editor.  Perhaps Google will be your friend.
