If you need a PDF file which can be opened for editing with OpenOffice in 100% layout accuracy, PDF Import for Apache OpenOffice (formerly Oracle PDF Import Extension) is a perfect solution.
This PDF Import is an extension or addon to the office suite OpenOffice. To get this extension to work, install the office suite before you install the extension.
The PDF Import extension enables the office suite to produce a hybrid PDF / ODF file. The file created will have a normal .pdf file extension. By itself, it is a PDF file and can be viewed by any PDF viewer such as Adobe Reader, PDF-XChange Viewer or Foxit Reader.
On top of this, it contains a source ODF file, which can be opened with OpenOffice directly from the PDF file for editing without losing any layouts, bookmarks, hyperlinks or formats.
