asked on

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.)

Thanks Joe, exactly the type of comments im looking for. i will check out you recommendations.
Well... Why not just use 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.

Free Licenses == Best Licenses
Free Licenses == Best Licenses
Not always! In fact, not usually, imo.
Ya Joe im not looking for free just usable with a lot of features for a reasonable price.
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.


Are you all set with this now, or do you need more help?  If all set, could you please close it out now.  If you need help with the question close process take a look at:

I ended up going with foxit and I want to thank everyone for the information on what you use.
You're welcome, Robert, and thanks to you for letting us know what you went with...always helpful to know how things turn out at these questions. Regards, Joe
