Free and low-cost PDF editors

PDF documents are becoming more and more prevalent in the business world and the documents are no longer just text. They also contain “fields” that need to be filled in…name, date, address, email, digital signature, etc.

Adobe Acrobat has a $299 dollar solution.

Here are some FREE and low-cost PDF editors


pdfillPrice: $19.99. Windows Only

I have been using PDFill for the past six months and I’m loving it. The sofware allows you to insert new formatted Text, Check, Image, Hyperlink, Whiteout and Highlight accurately anywhere inside PDF even if there is no interactive form inside without Adobe Acrobat. You can also create or insert Blank PDF Page and then insert new text, check, image or form fields inside.

pdf pen

Price: $49.95. Mac Only

This software allows you to fill out PDF forms and edit PDFs. You can split, combine, reorder, sign and augment PDFs with text, image overlays & watermarks.

pdf escapePrice: FREE. Platform Independent

This FREE web application lets you fill in PDF forms. In addition to text, you can add custom images, shapes, and links to your edited PDF document and you can save the finished document to your own computer or keep it on PDFescape’s server. This software is not a full PDF editor but is great if all you need is to fill in a PDF form.
