    I'm looking for a free PDF editor. I've tried two so far, one froze my computer and the other never finished downloading.

    I just need it to open a doc, change pricing and delete supplier details.

    Anyone know of a good one?

    If it is a Doc, then download OpenOffice (if you don't have MS Word)
    and open the Doc in OpenOffice and export as a PDF.

    OpenOffice is freeware. It is like a free version of the Microsoft Office
    suite of tools, and it will open any MS Office files.

    If it is a PDF that you need to edit, you can change it to a Doc HERE.
    Then edit the Doc in OpenOffice and export it as a PDF.

    Do you have Adobe illustrater? If not download a copy free for 30 days -- its hard to edit a pdf. If you have a doc, download bullzip pdf printer and install. It acts as a printer, so anything you can print from can produce a PDF. I use it all the time now!

    Thanks all. I have tried that online converter Wiz...It stalled out on me. I'll try it again.

    I do think I'll download a free trial as well, so if I like it, I can buy it later.

    Code:

    Works for me everytime. Convert it to .doc, edit, then save as .pdf

    Try PDFescape.com. It's online you don't have to convert. Just create account, upload the pdf then edit and download it again.

    There are other free online PDF to Doc convertors.
    Just do a Goole search for "free online PDF to Doc convertor"

    Good Luck! - "Wiz"
