Hi,

I made a pages document on my i-pad (:-) ) then saved it as PDF to mail it, and deleted the original.

On my mac I opened the PDF, but wanted to make some changes to it - how can I open it as pages again?

 

thanks

    When a document is exported to pdf it very much becomes a fixed graphic.

     

    Acrobat Pro can convert a .pdf to Word .doc, but it is less than perfect and extremely slow.

     

    Preview.app lets you select the text in the .pdf and copy/paste that back into Pages but you will be scrambling round to regain the garphics and images which are often reduced in resolution when converted.
