PDF Editor On The Fence.


I can't find the post I started a while back.

I've been using Adobe DC to edit PDFs. It works, but it is costing me 25 bucks a month. That is crazy for the few I do.

However, when I need it, it is a great tool and hard to not have it.

Is there another one that is cheaper or free that actually works or doesn't put a watermark on stuff. I thought there were some others.

The only reason I still have it is I forgot about it until I saw a charge. Hate the cost. It is outrageous.

It's a business expense... charge $5-$10 extra per customer as part of admin costs... covers the cost, makes you money on it instead and removes it as something to be even renting space in your head...

Think of it this way... you have consumables you use in every job that are a recurring cost and you need them to do your work (and cost more than $25/month)... you (hopefully) add a mark-up to materials to cover the intangibles... this is no different... it gets charged to the customer...

There's free versions of most anything out there... they're not always better, but here are some options... https://www.lifewire.com/best-free-pdf-editors-4147622

THIS is the one I like to use.

It is not as good as Adobe but it is free and it does work.

Re: PDF Editor On The Fence.


Thanks for the info. I'll poke around tonight and see if those work for me.

The Adobe one isn't perfect, that's for sure. You'd think it would be, but it's a kludgy affair.
