    Default PDF software Applications - Which is most Preferable

    Hi Guys.

    Just looking at installing an Application that enables the editing and re-arrangement of PDF files.
    I was for a while using Adobe Acrobat pro DC , but found the cost was a killer - especially when I only use it every now and then.

    Can anyone make any recommendations on what other Applications are out there and how good they are.


    Using Microsoft Win 7 / 10 OS's.


    Cheers

    Ren

    Are you editing an existing PDF or creating a new one? Foxit for existing ones, LibreOffice for creating.
    I'm out of my mind, but feel free to leave a message...

    Thanks for your replies.. Awesome.
    I'm mainly Editing existing PDF's but do create the new one from time to time.

    I'll have a look into both Foxit and Libreoffice

    LibreOffice will only allow you to create new ones. I believe that there is also an add on for M$ Orifice that permits you to save as PDF, too. I do not know just how powerful either app is in regards to creating interactive PDFs. If all you need to do is to create a read only document, then that should work.

    I found CutePDF pretty good. You also can get Pro version for pretty good price (just saw $50 for 1 license)
