    Is there tool or any other way to edit a PDF file, for example, changing background color, page size, fonts size, etc?

    Just copy the content from the pdf, paste it in word, edit what you want add fonts, background etc and then convert the word file to pdf again.

    When did Word add the function to convert to PDF? I know you can do that with Open Office but last time I used Word you couldn't do that.

    It doesn't work for PDF files with complex texts, the whole layout is distorted when it is pasted in ms word.

    You can either use a built in microsoft office add on or use a software to convert it. There are also online solutions.

    I simply use Open Office. It's similar to Word, is free, and comes with a text to PDF conversion capability - no add-on necessary. Works well for me.

    I personally user DocHub.com which is a free, popular and online tool for PDF editing.

    None of the solutions noted above work for me. If I knew how PDFs were built, I would make my own editor using FoxPro.
