OptiBooik is a flat-bed scanner. You would not use it to alter an existing pdf file. You can change an existing pdf file with programs like Kuzweil 1000 or PDF2Word. What are you looking to do with the pdf file?

How? Also are there other skins for the the related Actioon Express than the two silly ones that it comes with? -- Cordially, Nan Hawthorne www.nanhawthorne.com Historical fiction blogs, books, and a Celtic music radio show!
