Windows PDF Editor

  1. Dec 8, 2008 #1
    I'm trying to find some software (preferably free) which allows editing of pdf files in Windows XP. I don't need anything too fancy, just the ability to add/remove/reorder/resize pages, and to add and remove bookmarks.

    Anyone have any suggestions?

    Do you know any downloadable ones, by any chance?

    ghostview/ghostscript can be used to extract individual PDF pages.
    There are a bunch of gs one-liner tips on the web site explaing how to do things like this.

    Thanks robphy,

    Those look great. The only feature I'm still looking for is how to include links into the document itself. So for example I could make it so you can click on the index, and it takes you to the section. If anyone knows how to do this, let me know.

    Thanks for the help so far guys.

    have a bookmark feature... although they are slightly different.
    Click on "the Bookmarks tab" in the image under "User Interface" on each of the above pages.

    mbtPdfAsm http://thierry.schmit.free.fr/spip/spip.php?rubrique7&lang=en [Broken]
    allows you to put in bookmarks through a text file... using a rather confusing protocol.

    There are many PDF softwares available on the web but few of them really works. After googling and testing different PDF softwares, I have found classic PDF editor which can create, view, edit and convert any PDF. There are many other cool features like splitting & merging PDF etc

    It is most users friendly software and fully compatible with Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows Vista. You can free download it from CNET downloads here http://download.cnet.com/Classic-PDF-Editor/3000-18497_4-75452118.html

    A highly recommended PDF software. Don't forget to come back to share your views.

    You can read more about http://www.classicpdf.com" [Broken].
