eXPert PDF Editor is a decent alternative to Adobe’s Acrobat Pro editing tool. With this intuitive program, you will be able to perform most of the PDF editing tasks included in Acrobat, together with some exclusive ones (such as the addition of both static and dynamic stamps). The program’s ribbon-based interface makes it an easy-to-use PDF editor for all types of users.
Unlike other PDF editors that merely allow you to add boxes and sticky notes to your PDF files, eXPert PDF Editor lets you not only add all these elements to your PDFs, but also modify the existing text without losing the original layout. You can add letters, words, and even lines, and the program will re-flow the text following the original layout. You can also add (or remove) hyperlinks, images, text boxes, and forms, or correct and enhance existing ones. The program uses a WYSIWYG interface approach to make it as simple and intuitive as possible – both the program’s design and the functions and features included will quickly remind you of your favorite word processor. Actually, working on your PDF files with this application is just as simple and straightforward.
You can also use eXPert PDF Editor to create new PDF files from other text- or image-based documents, such as HTML or Word files. (Note that the Professional edition will also allow you to OCR your image-based documents and create fully searchable PDF files.)
Finally, it is worth noting the importance given by the program to security features – protecting your PDF files from unlawful use, duplication, or distribution can be easily achieved with the program’s extensive security settings. Certainly, an alternative PDF editing tool worth trying.
