PC Advisor - - HOW TO: EDIT PDFS USING FREE SOFTWARE AND ONLINE T -

There are lots of sites to which you can up­load PDFs and then ‘edit’ them, such as PDF Pro (pdf­pro.co), which lets you up­load three files per month and For­mSwift Free PDF edi­tor (tinyurl.com/zvf3g3L).

CutePDF Edi­tor (cutepdf-edi­tor.com) is an­other op­tion, but it re­quires Adobe Flash, which isn’t ideal. The edit­ing fa­cil­i­ties are very lim­ited and not all PDFs will load, but if the doc­u­ment is rel­a­tively plain and all you need are ba­sic fa­cil­i­ties, then it’s worth try­ing. It is es­sen­tially a page edi­tor. You can delete pages, re­ar­range their order, in­sert blank ones, crop and re­size them. The only edit­ing fea­tures are the abil­ity to add your own page head­ers and foot­ers, such as ti­tles, dates, page num­bers and so on.

PDF To Word (pdftoword.com) does ex­actly what the name says. You se­lect a file on your PC, up­load it to the site and it emails you the Word doc­u­ment a minute or two later. The ad­van­tage of this is that you can use Word or an­other word pro­ces­sor to edit the text and re­save the doc­u­ment as a PDF.
