4 free apps to edit your PDF documents
Most of the business and personal documents we deal with today are Portable Document Format (PDF) files. For example, bank statements, credit card bills, official contracts, working papers, utility bills, etc.
PDF files are often used because of the ease of sharing these files digitally and some of the security features we can implement in them. Here are five free PDF editors for you to easily edit your PDF files online and offline.
When it comes to PDF editor and tools, Sejda is one of the most popular options. Sejda offers an online and a desktop version of its application free of charge. Even though the app has some limitations for its use in the free version, it does not add watermark to the edited PDF file or limit its functionality. Additionally, to maintain user privacy, the company claims that all PDF documents uploaded for editing are deleted after two hours.
In addition to the editor, the service also offers a host of tools including PDF converters for converting PDF documents to and from other formats. The restrictions that Sejda implements for its free version are basically daily limits for its use.
Smallpdf PDF Editor is another online and offline PDF editor that you can quickly access to edit your PDF documents. The service is also available for mobile devices, offering a set of quick tools to manage your PDF file in addition to the full PDF editor. These tools can help convert PDF files to and from other formats, electronically sign them, and split or merge them.
The free version of the service has limitations, including access to just 21 PDF editing tools, no desktop access, and a daily limit of 2 documents for the editor.
Inkscape is a free and open source vector graphics and image editing application that can also help you edit PDF files. The application is desktop only and its set of tools for editing PDF files is limited to editing images and textual content in the document. Inkscape is available for Windows, macOS, and Linux.
LibreOffice Draw is part of the free and open source LibreOffice suite maintained by The Document Foundation. Similar to Inkscape, LibreOffice Draw is also a vector graphics editor capable of editing PDF files. The app is only available for the desktop on Windows, macOS, and Linux operating systems. In addition, you will need to download and install the entire LibreOffice suite on your system to access the LibreOffice Draw application.
