13 Free Tools for Viewing and Editing PDFs
PDF Viewing, Editing and Splicing

Adobe's Portable Document Format (PDF) has become something of a standard for sharing high quality digital documents. Unfortunately, many PDF readers only support a minimal set of tools for editing, annotating, or otherwise modifying PDF documents, and PDF publishing and editing suites, while powerful, can often cost an arm and a leg. Don't fret though, as there are a fair number of viewers that do more than just open PDF files, with loads of free tools to modify, split, merge, encrypt, or digitally sign these electronic documents.

    The verdict for Scribus was a bit off...

    "this is a tool worth considering for dedicated desktop publishing hobbyists or those who can't afford a full-on PDF creation suite like Adobe Acrobat."

    You mean Adobe InDesign.

    Got any PDF readers that can take advantage of more than 1 CPU core? Complex PDF files get bogged down by a high clocked C2D processor since it can only run on 1 core.
