    Need a Full PDF application to manipulate PDF's

    Hi all,

    Looking for a full PDF application to manipulate PDF files, add/remove/insert pdf files.

    Something like Adobe Acrobat.

    Any recommendations?

    Thanks

    Heeter

    Maybe This?

    For paid apps, check these two versions of PDF Studio 8.

    Hello Heeter,

    You may find "PDF Editor" or "Master PDF Editor" useful for your situation. Both these packages can be found in the Ubuntu Software Center by typing the aforementioned names in the seach bar at the top right. They are both free, and for that price its worth a shot right?

    If the two i mentioned here arent what youre looking for, there are several others that can be found by simply typing "PDF" in the search bar of the Ubuntu Software Center.

    Happy Ubuntu-ing,

    -Christian

    Hey thankss guys,

    I did look around in the software center, but too many to list. So I thought that I would ask here to see what everyone recommends using.

    Thanks again

    *addendum* - have you considered using adobe acrobat through wine? Could be your best solution.

    Hi All,

    I forgot to update this thread earlier.

    I ended up purchasing PDF Studio 8 Pro through the Software Center.

    I wasn't really into using an application like Adobe through wine. Would rather have an actual linux application.

    Thanks all,

    Heeter

    Some of these have been around a while and may not be up to what you need, but I use them a good deal:

    ...at UbuntuGuide:

    http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Ubuntu_S...fice#PDF_Files

    UbuntuGuide/KubuntuGuide

    Right now the killer is being surrounded by a web of deduction, forensic science,
    and the latest in technology such as two-way radios and e-mail.

    It sounds like you don't need a pdf editor but something that can split, combine and rearrange pdf files. pdfchain would do that and is in the repo.

    I have found pdftk extremely useful. It's in the repos. It is CLI, but the webpage http://www.pdflabs.com/docs/pdftk-cli-examples/ has lots of examples.
