I have used PDF Editor for more than 10 years and have tried many kinds of PDF Editors, including free online PDF editor, free desktop version, the desktop version of the fee, etc. Which one is the best PDF Editor? Which one is the most popular PDF Editor? With my own user experience, I researched the data of software downloads from the world's leading download sites and carefully checked most user reviews. I have to say that there are advantages and disadvantages to each PDF editor. In simple words, cheap is not good, and you get what you pay for.
The free online editors only provide simple functions, such as adding text and comments, merging and splitting files, and converting files to PDF format. Furthermore, most of them can not edit existing text documents with very few exceptions and have file size and page limits. In addition, there will be a watermark for your edited documents. The online PDF Editor is best suited for quick and easy editing work for these reasons.
Suppose you need some other features, such as OCR scanning, batch editing, adding/removing watermarks, digital signatures, and have some requirements of the PDF text style in the conversion formatting process. In that case, the overall desktop version is your Must-have tool.
I make a list of the most downloaded PDF Editors on the market, and these PDF Editors are downloaded and installed by most users.P.S.
The free desktop version is either a trial version of its paid version, and there are functional limitations. The pure free version often has some advertising pop-up and lacks most PDF core functions.
