Scribus , Inkscape , and GIMP all support native PDF export, too, so no matter what kind of document you need to make -- a complex layout, formatted text, vector or raster image, or some combination -- there's an open source application that meets your needs.
Editing PDFs Ah, this is where things start to get tricky. Or at least where they used to.
The world has changed a bit and it turns out that recent versions of LibreOffice Draw do a fantastic job of editing PDF files, and not just adding and deleting pages as you might expect, but for editing text and images as well so long as your PDF was created directly from a source document and not from a scan. It's not perfect, and I've had it choke up on a few more complex documents, but I'm still impressed with what a good job it does on many of the documents I've had to work with.
Inkscape , too, does a good job with opening documents created elsewhere, and may be a more intuitive choice if your document is heavy on graphics. We know these aren't the only choices in town. Do you work with a lot of PDFs?

Since the text is published as vector outlines, you cannot edit them at runtime. Dynamic text Dynamic text allows modification of text at runtime and does not add too much to the file size. It supports lesser options than Static text. Adobe Fonts provides direct access to thousands of quality, premium fonts from top foundry partners.
These files are copied to the same location as that of the FLA by default.
To its end, Animate allows you to migrate content by manually copying or importing individual layers, symbols, and other library items. For more information, see this link. However, when working the HTML5 document type in Animate, you can notice that certain Animate features are not supported.
This is because, the features within Animate do not have corresponding features within the Canvas API. This may affect you during content migration, when you attempt to: Copy content layers or library symbols from a traditional Animate document type such as ActionScript 3.
In this case, an unsupported content-type is either removed or converted to supported defaults.
