Import and Modify PDF Documents – Download Oracle PDF Import Extension

The PDF Import extension allows you to import and modify PDF documents in Draw and export it to the Open Document Format (ODF). We keep the layout of imported PDF document as close as possible to the original document.

The PDF Import Extension also allows you to import and modify PDF documents for non hybrid PDF/ODF files. PDF documents are imported in Draw to preserve the layout and to allow basic editing. This is the perfect solution for changing dates, numbers or small portions of text with a minimum loss of formatting information for simple formatted documents.

Documents with more sophisticated layouts, such as those created with professional Desktop Publishing applications that use special fonts and complex vector graphics are not suitable for the PDF Import Extension. Similarly, longer documents (> 20 pages) may cause some performance and stability problems.
