What is a good - less expensive -  alternative of Adobe Acrobat? Our company is using Acrobat 6.0 standard for a PDF printer - we have recently upgraded to Win 7 and Acrobat 6.0 is not compatible.
We are looking for a PDF software with the following features - Convert/Print to PDF, stamp PDF docs, and combine multiple documents into one PDF(add, remove pages)
Any good suggestions?

Take a look at bluebeam. We have replaced the majority of our Adobe STD and PRO licenses with Bluebeam with the exception of some that need Adobe for specific programs.

The cost is much less than Adobe.

You might want to also try Open Office if you are looking for free. It has a powerful Word Processor that can save to PDF.

CutePDF is fairly basic (although it is free). I have not tried inserting or deleting pages with it. However, this page says you can do it.

Does anybody know if you can print the notes in Foxit PDF standard. I am able to print stamps  but not the notes added to a stamp?
