    Hey,

    I have an ebook in pdf format. I am looking to add my referrel link in there. As most of the e-books, this one doesn't allow me to edit anything. However, copy-paste restrictions isn't there in this e-book.

    Can someone guide me how to edit this e-book? Thanks!

    I usually convert it to an Open Office (.odt) file and then edit it using their free software.

    Convert it from pdf to odt here...

    If you don't have Open Office Writer, go here (it's free):

    Note: Not all files convert perfectly, so it might need some additional formatting.

    Good luck!

    Thanks a ton! The first link worked like a charm. Didn't expect that it would turn out to be so easy.

    Hi, Super11. Your e-books are encrypted and added copy-paste restrictions by author.
    Why not to convert PDF to word for easier editing? I always convert PDF files to editable word format with AnyBizSoft http://www.anypdftools.com/pdf-to-word.html#168. From my long time experience of searching and testing, this tool supports encrypted files, batch conversion and preserves text, layouts, images and hyperlinks well.
    You can edit your e-books after conversion in Word.
