A program with full editing capabilities for PDF files can cost hundreds of dollars or even more. And for home users and small-businesses, this is just too much!
In many cases however, buying an expensive PDF-editing tool is not necessary. You can get away with free PDF editing tools without your documents suffering from lower quality and resolution. Let’s take a look at some of them:
Nitro PDF 3
While it’s limited compared to the paid and expensive PDF tools out there, it has enough features to accommodate the average user. This tool allows you to enter text as well as add and fill up forms in a PDF file.
Moreover, the “extract images” feature allows you to store the photos and graphics contained in a PDF document separately. The other feature – “Convert to Text,” only creates a simple text file. However, you can copy and paste the simple text Nitro PDF 3 created and edit it in MS Word.
Converting PDF To Word
Alternatively, a PDF file can be converted directly into an MS Word document that you can easily edit and format. There are numerous free online tools that allow you to do just that. You can go to PDFOnline.com or PDFToWord.com to get your PDF files converted to *doc.
Merging, Changing Page Sequence, Etc.
If you want to reorganize existing PDFs (ex.: change the pages’ order; split the files; add or remove pages), you can use “PDF Split And Merge.” This tool allows you to merge, split files, and add or remove pages quickly. It’s interface is a little more complex than the other tools listed here, but once you get a grip of it, “PDF Split And Merge” is pretty easy to use and quite powerful, too.
