    I know that Mac OS/X came with a viewer for pdf files. Is there an utility to modify the content? For instance, I want to fill in a form sent to me in pdf format.

    I'm not sure what you mean by fill in a PDF form but Acrobat will allow you modify a PDF's content.

    "Preview" will allow you to edit pdf text. I use it every day.


    edit: If the PDF was created as a form you can edit it in ‘Preview’. Simply open the application folder, double click on Preview, open the PDF form, choose Text Tool from the Tools menu. Then click a field and type in your info. If the field doesn’t highlight in blue, the PDF isn’t a form that you can fill out

    For instance, can I write notes on a pdf file?
