The Free Software Inkscape editor allows minor editing of PDF files,
if you tell it to import text as text when opening the PDF file. Just
double-click any text block to edit. It won't reflow paragraphs.

You can also select all text in most PDF readers to copy and paste
into word processors. This preserves fonts and some other formatting,
but loses layout.

Scribus is the most powerful Free Software publishing program. You
should edit text in other programs, and drop it into a Scribus layout
when it is finished.

I am a professional tech writer. I would be happy to assist with other
publishing questions.
