Brooke - your email was a little unclear to me....but....if you can fully create your document in Word and just want to be able to convert it to a pdf file, there is a freeware product called cutepdf (search for it on google and download it) that essentially installs itself on your pc like it is a printer, but instead of prionting, it converts documents to pdf files. If you are in Word, you just print your document and select cutepdf writer as the printer. It will prompt you for where to save the newly created pdf - you can then email it or whatever you want to do, but it is non-editable.
Not sure if that solves your problem. I do not know of any freeware pdf editing tools.
So what's up anyway??
