Any freeware PDF editor other than PDF995??
What do you want to do? Change a little text, move things around, set
creator and security information, combine PDFs, move/delete pages?

There are lots of different ways to "edit" a PDF and lots of different
tools.

Just out of curiosity, do you know of any that are freeware and which
will open an existing .pdf file (assuming it's not locked)?

software, crippleware, demoware, nagware, PROmotionware, shareware,
spyware, time-limited software, trialware, viruses or warez for me, please.

I wish to edit (type in data) a PDF form with blank boxes and lines..
The PDF form is presently intended to be printed out and then data
penciled in the boxes, but
I would like to type in the data and then print out a readable PDF form..

Willard,
I looked and looked and couldn't find anything to do this. However,
there is a technique I have used in the past. What I did was to screen
shot each page in sections (fitting width to screen) and then use an
image editor to join the sections together. Something like Photofiltre:

http://www.photofiltre.com/

will do this. Then once you have a saved image compiled of a given page,
you can use the same program to overlay text on it, wherever you want.
It sounds difficult, but really isn't that hard. To join image
sections, you increase the size of the first section of the image so
that it lies within a large blank working area. Next, you copy and paste
the next section of the page into that "working area" being careful to
leave it selected and thus moveable, and finally, you move that pasted
section carefully into place. When I'm moving a section into place like
this, I find that it's very helpful to zoom in to a corner of it so that
you can align it with the existing section perfect. Once you have it
aligned, then deselect it and merge it onto the first image so that you
don't have any layers. Save the resulting image and repeat the process
with the next section.

This technique has worked very well for me in the past. When you print
the end product, the result will be almost if not exactly the same as if
you printed the .pdf file, but the form will be filled out.

I see a familiar name on PhotoFilter 6.2.3
I'll try your above procedure..

Merci Beacoup ::)
