You will be prompted that there may be some slight formatting changes but they are usually very minimal. You can then edit your PDF!

To save it, or any other type of document as a PDF you will click File -> Save As-> Select where you want to save the PDF-> click on the arrow next to the file type (this usually defaults to Word Document *.docx) and select PDF->click save.
