Which .PDF editor is better

Acrobat alternative.
Can everyone please let me know what pdf editor/creator that you use. One of my clients needs a few licenses and I am looking at Foxit and Nitro. Please let me know your OPINIONS on which is better of the two or if you know of a better one. I am looking for a one time purchase and not a subscription.

Like all other software, the best one is the one that fits your needs and that you find easy to use.  So it requires making the customer try them and compare.  This lets you off the hook later when the customer says "I don't like feature X."

(The next best one is the one that the customer can afford.)

Well... Why not just use https://www.libreoffice.org which runs on Linux/OSX/Windows + is free.

With LibreOffice you maintain content in a common format (ODF), then export content to many other formats, including PDF.

Not always! In fact, not usually, imo.

For what it's worth, I had needs for a PDF editing tool, and couldn't justify the cost of Adobe solutions for my personal use, so looked at some of the options out there and settles on PDF-XChange.  So far it is serving me well and has been able to do the basic editing that I needed.  Of course, everyone's needs are different, so review for yourself and compare to your needs.
