I had a potential client that needed to update some marketing documents but they lost the originals that they used to create some PDF files. While thinking about this, I remember that I have some search/replace type programs that are designed to brand PDF files. They wouldn’t do the required job, but made me think that someone has to have a PDF editor.
I searched around and found a few. Most of them were either really expensive or really limited. I ended up coming across Infix PDF Editor from Iceni Technology which had a trial edition so I could see if it would do what I wanted before buying it.
It was easy to use and did exactly what I wanted. A fully licensed copy is only $99. (They also have a Pro version for $199 and a free form fill edition.) Considering that I quoted $147 to do the edits, it is a great deal.
It allowed me to move around the document editing the text freely. It probably does a lot more, but it more than did what I wanted for a low cost.
A couple cool features beyond what I needed was filling forms on PDFs that were not form filled enabled, and linking/unlinking URLs on the PDF.
