PDF editing apps when it comes to making, saving, and sharing documents digitally without the fear of the texts and images moving and getting displaced based on the type and size of the device used to view it, pdf format has proven to be the best format.
PDF can also be viewed on different types of devices like Android, iOS, macOS, Windows, etc with the help of in-built or downloaded tools or software.
However, when it comes to editing the PDF, tweaking the texts and images in the PDF files, things gets difficult.
In this article, I have compiled 8 top PDF editing software that can be used when you need to change or add to that text or image in your PDF file.
-Free: 3 documents with at most 200 words each per day
-Paid: $5.00 weekly for Web pro or $69.95 for desktop license offers unlimited edits
Sejda is one of the best free PDF editing apps.
-It can directing edit the texts and images of PDF file
-You can directly sign your PDF files
-You can merge different PDF files together and re-arrange them in the order you want it to be.
C)Converts from PDF to excel, jpg, ppt, text and word
D)Converts html, jpg, word to PDF
E)It can compress, split, extract and delete pages.
Sejda has some disadvantages as well;
-It struggles with custom fonts, and the solution is to first convert the font to a font present in Sejda before editing it.
-It often applies the same edit across a paragraph, so you can’t have some words “BOLD” while some in “italics” in the same paragraphs. The solution is to create a text box around the word or group of words you want to have a particular type of edit and edit it before dragging it back to join the paragraph.
One thing I like about this software is that you can start with a completely blank document and successfully create a new PDF document.
Sejda is available on Web, Windows, Mac, Linux
