Do you also find it annoying that editing PDF files can be a very clumsy affair? Then you have come to the right place because in this article we take a look at how to make various kinds of both simple and advanced modifications with free tools for both Windows, Mac and Linux. Have fun!
In the first paragraph you can read more about how to first and foremost compose and reorganize the pages of PDF documents as needed. Then we list further down a smart tool, which is mostly for the advanced users who are looking for even more functionality. For all the programs we refer of course to our sister site Download.dk.
Composition and reorganisation
A very common challenge for most people is either to put together several PDF documents or to change the order of the individual pages. For these issues, we recommend that you use a small tool called PdfJumbler. Since it does not require to be installed, simply open the program, add its documents and make the desired changes with the mouse.
We have not even tried to use PdfJumbler on operating systems other than Windows 7, but the developer promises that the program can also be used on Linux and Mac. However, since it is a JAR file, one must remember to have Java installed.
If you’re just using Mac, then you don’t actually need a program to make these changes, since Apple’s built-in program, Image Viewer, can be applied to exactly the same thing. When you have a document open, click on “Overview “at the top of the program and select”thumbnails”. Then the process is almost the same, as you also use the mouse to drag around the sides to the left. When you close the PDF Document, Image Viewer saves your changes.
More advanced modifications
In the previous section, the simplest types of edits were described. For the more geeky users on the site, we also recommend the tool PDFill PDF Tools, which allows you to create a number of more advanced options. To get an overview of the program’s features it’s easiest to just take a look at the main menu:
As seen in the picture, PDFill PDF Tools can be a lot more than PdfJumbler, including the ability to encrypt files, add watermarks, make rotation and much more. To do one of the things, of course, click on the button, but since the program does not display the document in question at the same time, it is important to keep your tongue straight in your mouth and have control of the technical concepts.
Here at IT articles, we hope you can use our guide. If you also have a really good tip that you just have to share with the site’s other users, then you are always welcome to leave a comment.
