Editing PDF files

Are there any shareware programs available that allows editing of PDF files ?

  Pesala 21:35 08 Nov 2008

There are almost no programs, Shareware or otherwise, that are much use for editing PDF files. Foxit Editor is Shareware. OpenOffice 3.0 Draw can open PDF files but each line of text is a separate object.

The best at a reasonable price is PagePlus 11, but you have to understand that you cannot edit a PDF file like you can an imported word-processing document.

Each page will be at least one separate text frame — maybe dozens of text frames.

Why do you need to edit PDF files?

In reply to why do I need it ? Its for completing forms and saving them rather thangoing through the scan process.
Thanks for the feedback anyhow

Maybe you could use a free pdf to word program to get the form into word, edit it, and then save as pdf. (programs are- free PDF to Word, and cute PDF writer.)

I use PDF Xchange Viewer`s typewriter function to do exactly that. It`s free too. You can also highlight text, underline, annotate and add post it style notes for collaboration projects.
