    Trying to correct some dates and spelling errors on a PDF Resume, I was using adobe acrobat and that worked fine....but was only on a trial. Anything similar that will let me delete date,or change date and few letters here and there that need to be corrected?

    I don't want to change format and lose the way the resume looks just a simple editor to edit small things nothing major....

    I have actually been checking multiple forums and reading multiple threads with no real luck to anything that actually works....

    Is it your résumé? If so, don't you have the original document? If so, you can edit the original document, then save it as a new PDF.

    Yes I used a paid site to create it quite awhile ago, and I saved it as PDF . Probably a mistake on my part I guess...but I am stuck...

    You can simply copy the PDF and paste it into Word or Pages, reformat it the way you want and make any edits you like, then save it as a PDF. That way you'll have the original editable document and can create PDFs whenever you want. That's a better approach anyway, as your résumé should be adapted for whatever job you're applying for, which may require a different version for different jobs.

    That was suggested in one of the threads I linked, but apparently, the OP feels it doesn't meet their needs, for some reason.

    I just summarized for him the one that would do precisely what he wants. :)

    Edit the original file and recreate the pdf or do you just want to say "no" to every possible option out there?

    Sorry, looked at the first couple links and didn't see anything that worked.

    ^This doesn't work at all, tried that before I asked anyone.

    Hmmm....

    Paying $14.99/month for Adobe Acrobat isn't an option?

    Just to clarify what might not be immediately apparent, for simple changes like you probably want to do, the Draw component might be better than the Writer component in LibreOffice. Writer will bring the PDF back to a word processing document and let you/make you reformat it.

    ----------

    That's probably the best suggestion in my opinion because I trust Adobe's PDF implementation the most.
