Thank you for your reply. 

I am using libre on windows.

This is what I found:

 Import does not show in Extension Manager. It was installed on LO4 and 
Debian Testing (Wheezy) via "aptitude install libreoffice-pdfimport". 
 is interesting to see that the very first item under features 
(/ is PDF Import, but it not 
found anywhere at the Extension Center 
( This needs to be 
corrected, too.
 Also, it still very problematic with many PDF files.
 but not least, the TAGS box below needs to be adjusted to allow more 
than 20 characters per tag. For example, I just tried to enter 
"libreoffice-pdfimport", but it did not allow.

Hi David

There is a PDF importer for LibreOffice. You can download it from the extensions download.

I made a libre office document.

I wanted to send it to someone, so I converted it to pdf.

Now, I want to edit it and I see the original libre doc is gone.

And the pdf won't let me edit it.

If it is possible, I don't see how? 

 It is not user friendly.

I would prefer to be able to convert the pdf back to libre office doc.

Can that be done?

If so how?
