RESOLVED: What is a good pdf editor? I have to fill out a bunch of forms.

Post by James_Smith »

These are tests administered by my employer. At the top of each form it has name, date, employee id number, division and then it's 20 or so questions with boxes next to them that I have to put an X in.

Sorry, this is almost more of a newbie question. If I have to, I'll switch over to Windows and purchase Adobe Acrobat but I'd really rather not.

Thank you.

I don't think it's relevant here but I'll tell you this much about my system:

Kernel: 5.3.0-62-generic x86_64
Desktop: Cinnamon 4.4.8
Distro: Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia

Just to add, JimAllyn posted this link to an older version of MasterPDF that doesn't have the watermark added....

Gee, nice find. Thank you.
It's pronounced kad-eye-cha, not kada-itcha.

So, the newer version puts a watermark on your document after you edit it?
sudo apt-get --purge remove macOS

It appears so, yes. Time to uninstall.

Only when using the free version. The paid version does not.
