    I would suggest that you don't use PDF format, since editing a PDF is quite difficult, it's a display format, not meant to be edited. You can Annotate a PDF. Why not just store it as regular text?

    I'll give it a try. Usually when I0ve seen anything in regular text it just seems a jumble of words with ni indentations. I'll see what happens when I convert odt to regular text.

    There's a few apps that read ODT, but none that support editing yet.
