Does Libre office have a stand alone PDF application? ie - does Libre provide the PDF editor by itself without all the other features in the 200 MB download - is it possible to install only the PDF tool without all the other features ?
All responses appreciated. Thanks, Paula


But then, Draw can open (most) PDFs. Maybe not ideal for what PDFs
are intended for, but works.

It depends on what you want to achieve when editing PDF. In the accessibility community, PDFs often cause headaches because most people don't know how to produce accessible documents. If your ODF source file is not accessible and if you forget to check the "Tagged PDF" and "Export bookmarks" options when exporting, you end up with a file where fixing the accessibility issues costs a lot of money (= price of Adobe Acrobat + time investment). I don't know if importing PDF into Draw and editing it would be the solution for accessibility. For example, I don't know if you can check the reading order of text in Draw.
