What software do we need to be able to open a .pdf file that has been sent to us and make changes to it? I've looked on the Adobe site at the latest version of Reader but I'm not convinced it does it - maybe it's not possible or I'm looking at the wrong thing?
We can create .pdfs in Indesign but that won't open them!
Opps, forgot to mention .... what we want it for is when advert proofs are sent to use in .pdf format we want to be able to make our own changes - change a bit of text or replace a logo or photo. Usually no longer than 2 pages.
Foxit do a an extremely quick and IMO good pdf reader, it also has the functions to add annotations etc. They also do a pdf editor. There is a free version of the editor you can try which adds a small advert stamp to each file in free mode. I don't know how the license stands up though, if you are using for commercial use. click here
Thank you Chaps! I'm at home now and can't investigate the above options for another week because I am on leave to watch the tennis ;)
Points noted though:
We're working in XP so Serif PagePlus may be an option.
What Ditche said is probably what I'm looking for - the adobe programme. NB: My InDesign prod at work is a stand alone v2 - it was overkill in it's day for what we need so I highly doubt it needs upgrading anyway (?).
Will also look at PFs suggestion but we'll definately need to be paying, can't be having stamps on things!
In the end it will all come down to cost. Probably can't justify more than £600 but I'll explore all your options and see.
