I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I've tried several solutions, but my favorite is PDFelement by Wondershare. Excellent OCR engine and allows you to edit PDF documents quite well.

To purchase a subscription for the Genuine Adobe products: Acrobat Pro DC or Acrobat Standard DC.

Both Standard and Pro will give you the ability to edit and write to a PDF, but Pro has more features.

A feature comparison chart between Acrobat Pro DC and Acrobat Standard DC is available on the linked site.

Hope that's helpful.

Regards, Andrew

You can try LibreOffice: https://www.libreoffice.org/download/download/. It has support for PDF and is free of cost!

IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Andrew LeniartEE Senior Editor & Independent IT ConsultantCommented:
LibreOffice only supports the filling of pre-prepared PDF forms (as does the Free Adobe Reader software available from Adobe) You can also save LibreOffice files in PDF format.

LibreOffice does not offer any functionality to edit and/or write to pre-existing PDF's. An OCR engine is required for that purpose and that requires a commercial (Pro) solution. I know of no free alternatives that are worth their salt.

Hope that's helpful.

if the PDF is fill-able, any pdf reader will let you fill out a PDF.

Please clarify your question.

Acrobat reader has the fill and sign function that allows you to place text boxes throughout a pdf and type into it. You only need a pro version if you want to create an editable form that can be filled. Depends on your needs to determine what product to use.

Do these allow me to save the information I put in the text fields. I have seen software that will allow me to fill out text fields but not to save.
