Wow! I though all of us OS/2 users had long since gone the way of the
dinosaurs :) I can't speak to EPM but I think that gwenview is what you are
looking for to replace PMView. It is an image/multimedia viewer. Dolphin is
not too bad either if you turn on the preview icon view.

Kate is an excellent editor for programming and text file editing. It is
not so good as a word processor. It sounds like what you are looking for is
a word processor. At least that is what I hear when I read "reflowing text
after major editing". If so I recommend Libreoffice.
