allow you to print to pdf on disk instead of to a printer -- very cool)
but that creates pdf documents Karen, he is trying to edit one already
While you cannot edit the actual document, you can extract the text in
it and then paste that into notetab or any other software you choose.

The issues you are likely to find though is that text saved as images
will have to be OCRed (Optical Character Recognition) before they
become editable, and that often means careful corrections to the OCR
product before actually setting out to finish what you wanted to do.
It is likely to be a multi-stage process. Portable Document Format was
designed to make the process difficult, and the PDF docs are usually a
viewable/printable format, but not meant to be edited by downstream users.
http://www.google.com/search?q=pdf+editing+freeware will offer some choices.
