Scribus 1.3.4 & imports PDF's but it seems to be 'hit & miss' -
mostly miss; some open just fine, most won't open at all. When they do
open the editing features work pretty well.

Maybe the cvs might be able to?

These might be of interest:
[A killer app: PDF Editor - old but useful & should probably be titled
'flpsed: PDF form filler'. Comments have some good suggestions]

flpsed works well for annotating & filling out new/blank forms, but you
cannot edit forms filled in by Adobe Reader etc. It now opens the pdf

Note: some recommend pdfedit, but I've never figured out how to master
that program for even simple edits.
