We have covered plenty of PDF editors for desktop, web and mobile platforms like PDFzen
for Windows, Web, iOS and Mac OS X that allowed editing and sharing PDF files in a collaborative manner. PDF Mod
was a another comprehensive option for Linux. In a nutshell, there are many PDF tools out there, all offering their own feature-sets and functionality. Should you be looking for another one to try out, give PDFCool PDF Editor
a go. It’s a free PDF viewer and editor for Windows that bundles a variety of PDF-related tools in the package.
PDF editors come in all shapes and sizes, but not all of them (in fact, hardly any) allow you to easily annotate PDF documents and share them with others for collaboration. PDFzen
from Docudesk will set you on a course that makes PDF manipulation a tad easier. It’s an HTML5 based web app (with Windows, Mac and iOS companion clients) that lets you perform basic editing and annotation on PDF documents before sharing them with friends or colleagues. You can share the annotated documents on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, LinkedIn, StumbleUpon and Reddit, or copy their source URLs. The service is fairly easy to use, and doesn’t require you to go through the hassle of configuring editing tasks and access permissions.
Extracting certain required pages off a large PDF document can be easily achieved these days, via various different software. There are umpteen number of applications and services available out there that let you view, and most importantly, in our case, cut or split a PDF document into separate files, but most tools require you to set advance options to get the job done. Today, we discovered an application labelled as Weeny Free PDF Cutter
, which is quite the opposite. It is a small, yet powerful application, which lets you cut your PDF document pages into separate documents, so that you can easily rearrange specified pages according to your preferences. The ease factor here is the meticulous division of the required settings into separate sections. Details to follow after the break.
Although there are a number of handy PDF viewers, such as Adobe PDF, they do not allow extensive PDF editing. For this reason, one has to use a separate application for performing PDF related editing. Most PDF editors, such as CutePDF, simply allow converting all kinds of file types into PDF format
, rather than allowing to edit existing PDF files in a comprehensive manner. Hence, such applications are more of PDF writers rather than PDF editors.
People who use PDF writers, may require converting the PDF document to another format (e.g., TXT Format), and then using a PDF writer to convert the document back to PDF format after editing. BabyPDF
is a an application that acts as both a viewer and editor for PDF documents. It comes with basic controls that enable you to adjust the appearance of the documents which you are working with (in the viewing mode), whereas the editing mode allows modifying the PDF file's content.
There are quite a few PDF readers on the App Store, but this is the first time we've come across an app for iOS that lets you read and annotate multiple PDF documents simultaneously. The app is called PDF+PDF Lite
and it is designed specifically for the iPad. The app is designed to relieve you of the headache of consulting and annotating books, journals and documents when the time is scarce and you have ample studying to do. With PDF+PDF Lite, you can crop pages in a PDF doc, change background color, annotate important sections and copy text from one PDF document to the other all within the app.
Expert PDF Reader
is a tabbed PDF viewer that also comes with options to modify and change PDF documents. It allows editing outlines, inserting rubber stamps and editing any annotation present within the document. The program has been designed to provide complete functionality of a PDF viewer, and also enable users to perform some modifications before printing or sending the document to a recipient. You can also attach multiple PDF files to a single document.
Opening a PDF file is no big deal, even your browser can do it, but editing one certainly isn’t easy and the hardest thing is to find a good reliable PDF editor that let’s you perform basic editing like text, image and form fields. PDFescape
is an online PDF editor that does all that and more. The free version lets you edit files that are 10MB or less or have fewer than 100 pages.
PDF files are amongst the most popular document formats these days, and their increased usage means every computer would need at least some kind of reader that could handle them. Adobe’s own reader may be good, but not only is it taxing on system resources but also leaves the user craving for ‘some more’ features. Other alternatives like Foxit
have been around and about for quite a while, but here comes a new contender that claims to be better than all. Meet Nitro PDF Reader.
