I work for a non-profit organization and we have a lot of staff that need to work with PDFs. Our designers etc have the Adobe suite but that is quite expensive and I do not want to purchase a lot of licenses for the occasional user. We are using mainly Windows based PCs (and some from Apple).
We need the editor mainly to edit text like adding or deleting a paragraph, rearrange words, fix typos etc. Nothing too fancy.
I do not want to use an online tool. It has to be 100% offline (after download).
By looking around the net I found some free PDF editing software; the best seemed to be:
- Libre Office's Draw
- or Open Office's equivalent
I tested Libre Office and it does a ok job with text only pdfs. The main draw back is that Libre Office cannot handle all images well. Some pictures etc get skewed or misplaced. It also seems that all fonts need to be installed on the system or it will replace it with another one. Other minor annoyances I found include that one cannot just save the file. You have to export it as a new PDF each time (but good for versioning). One also has to install the entire suite to get this one function.
Is there any free, offline, true PDF editor that is easy to use?
