Acrobat Pro is lovely.

For the few things I've had to do (mostly non-editable forms) I've 
wound up converting to image and working from there, but it means that 
you wind up converting all the text to image which isn't generally a 
good thing.

I've been hearing some stuff about pdf editing with free software, but 
I haven't tried anything out yet.  I'll see if I can rustle up some 
links when I'm not tired, though.
