Hi all - I have an "Editable" PDF, and an acquaintance of mine was able to open it & make changes using Adobe Illustrator (which I don't own, and is too complicated for me anyway).
I want to make simple changes ... changing the name in the top of the PDF and changing a date at the bottom.
I do not want to convert it to another format.
And I prefer software that I can install & use, not an online service. Does not need to be free ... just needs to be reasonable, not Adobe Prices !!!
Does anyone have any suggestions for reasonable software that I can use do edit this to use with a MAC?

Try  ‘Preview’....if that doesn't have enough features you may need to get something like Adobe Illustrator or Adobe Acrobat Professional.

Here's a single-user license one for $50....https://www.wondershare.com/mac-pdf-editor/  And it does have a free trial.
