Topic: Software to open, edit, save in pdf...not Adobe

I am trying to help someone abroad identify a particular software package that opens an existing PDF file, allows one to make a change, and save it as pdf, without using other software or conversion tools.

His particular interest is in being able to change, for example, the font in a word processing document. So the way this works is to directly open the pdf file from the software's File/Open menu, make the format change, and save as pdf.

I can't locate the package that does this, and oddly enough, we think it begins with A but it is definitely not Adobe/Acrobat, or Apache !!!

I'd be glad to search, but I'm not sure what criteria to enter when searching. If you know of this miracle package, please let me know. This is a duplicate post of one in Beginners, but there seemed to be some extremely knowledgeable folks here and I wanted to cover my bases.

I hope this will ring a bell with someone.
