I very much suspect that this is "editing" in the sense of adding a
layer to the document. I've seen little technical information on how
this is done. I suspect you could achieve similar effects with
considerably more effort elsewhere.
The point should be reiterated, however, that PDF is a *display* format,
not a preferred for for modifying texts, and in general, your best bet
is to go back to the source document itself.
