Hi Barry

As far as I know LibreOffice does not import PDFs, although I did try an
extension for OpenOffice.org that would import PDFs into Draw, but it was a
rather poor result.

If you can tell me how you are trying to do this in LO or how it worked in
11.04 (ie what part of LO, what commands you use, etc), I might be able to
help you.  However the best way of getting PDFs into LO or OOo that I know
off is a package called OCRFeeder.  This can load a PDF, 'scan' it using
OCR technology, then output in .odt format.  Between scanning and output
you can clean the file up, delete unwanted parts, etc.  It is in the
Software Centre.  Why not download it and give it a try.
