Editing the PDF files in linux is being a Nightmare till yesterday. We have to convert the pdf to ps file. Then ps to a image file. Then Edit the image using any image manipulation tool. Then bind the edited images into a new PDF file. What such a long process and n00b users can not do all these kindas.
But today, the things are changed. Those days are gone with the wind. Thanks to PDFedit. It is excellent Graphical tool.
- You should open the pdf file.
- Select the text to be modified.
- Modify the text in the separate window.
- Copy the modified text.
- Replace with the old text.
PDF editing is not easier than this before.
I am longing to see a tool like Adobe Acrobat, which can edit PDF files just like Word Documents. Now We got PDFedit. Thanks to the community.
