    What distro are you using? Usually I search the repositories before searching anywhere else. I found PDF Shufflers but I don't think it allows for editing text.

    I'm new so can't post the link but google pdfescape. That might work for you. I haven't used it though.

    Hi,

    I like Foxit Reader from Foxit software. Currently I have it installed under Wine and as the default pdf reader. Unfortunately, the tabs don't seem to work under wine but the typing onto pdf's certainly works fine.

    You can easily compose what you want using Libre Office (or OpenOffice), then save it directly to PDF format.
    Easy peasy

    That's true, but often information sheets or downloads are already in pdf format. Foxit lets you type directly over the top of the pdf, select and highlight text etc, which is great for referring to again later.

    Try pdfedit, in most repositories.
