We often use PDF files every day. Most people just convert PDF files to the documents, or directly save document files as PDF files in MS Office Word and PPT. However, they often feel difficult to edit PDF files, like adding or deleting content in PDF files. Actually, there are many PDF programs available to use, not only PDF creator or PDF reader tools.


When we talk about the PDF split and merge, actually it's very simple, the free Icecream PDF Split & Merge is enough.


This is a well-developed tool for PDF split and merge. It has a simple and consice interface, very easy to use. It provides 4 split modes: split into single-page files, split by group of pages, delete certain pages, and split by page range.


You can also set a password in the advanced settings to protect your splitted or merged PDF files. In addition, it also supports to split and merge the password-protected PDF documents, but before that, you need to know the correct password.


Directly turn to the PDF merger control panel on the same page


One last thing to note, the free version has some limitations: 40 pages limit per document in Split mode, 3 Files limit per one merge in Merge Mode. Upgrade to the PRO version to unlock these restrictions.

I ever reading books on the Kindle before, there will be a small number of scanned PDF books that need to be viewed on e-reader. However, the quality of the scanned books are not all good, some of the margins are often too large, resulting in the content pages of the books being too small to read. At this time, the PDF Crop tool shared in the forum is very helpful to use.


It's a pity that this software is only suitable for the small PDF page layout, and for the larger PDF page layout, this program doesn't support the page overlaid, so it's only used as a supplement to reading ebooks. As ePub files become more and more rich and abundant, PDF will not become the main format of ebooks file formats in the future.


The Simple PDF Conversion, you can try the free online service, those free PDF online format conversion services can be converted between Word, Excel, PowerPoint documents and PDF files.

The results are not bad but not good, but it's FREE. If the document is complexed, and you have a certain requirements of the original content converted, you need the following PDF editors or refer to another post:


Nitro Productivity Suite



I've ever tried many PDF editing software, whether the online PDF editing tools, or desktop gadgets, I was not satisfied with them. Online tools are also not satisfied, because sometimes it will encounter network instability or PDF files are too large, long time to wait are uncomfortable, and some online tools do not support to directly download the edited PDF, but need to fill it in the mailbox to send the document to your personal email account, it is also very trouble. As my usual work involves French, German, Japanese and even Chinese, these gadgets really can't satisfy me, so I'd rather spend a lot of money to buy the specific PDF editing software: (Adobe Acrobat Pro is too expensive and also big in size, I exclude it first.)

I use Nitro Pro in my office work, now its name changed to Nitro Productivity Suite (in fact, it's the nitro pro + 1 year nitro cloud service), you can see the interface and know how great it is, I am too lazy to introduce it, PDF Edit and PDF format conversion are made into one product, only at $127.00 discounted price, compared to Adobe Acrobat, it is much cheaper, the effect is very satisfied, very worth to buy, with no regrets.


Nitro Cloud also is very good to use.


Reviews:
1. It supports two pages viewing, you can browse and edit two PDF files at the same time without opening another window.
2. You can directly install plugins for Word, Powerpoint, Excel in MS OFFICE, that you can use nitro plugin to complete PDF conversion.
3. I like the PDF sign function best, I think it's the most convenient PDF sign tool I've ever used.
4. What a pity, there is no mobile app.

PDFelement



In addition to Nitro Pro, I also used a PDF software called PDFelement on my colleague's computer. It interface looks comfortable, similar to word, and performs quite well. What impressed me the most is that it perfectly supports Chinese, and its price is cheaper than Nitro Pro.

PDF Expert for Mac



I use this PDF program on my MacBook Pro at home, plus I'd like to say the new MacBook is too awesome!


PDF Expert has better display than Adobe Acrobat Pro on MacBook, and PDF Expert pays more attention to details.


It also provides the iOS version, that is very similar to the Mac version in terms of operating habits.


I can tell you guys from personal experience:
1. PDF Expert is less than 100M in size, but has rich features, well optimized, but on the other side, the optimization of the Acrobat Reader is a bit horrible.
2. PDF Expert has a fast speed of page turning and rendering.
3. PDF Expert supports Mac OS very well, and its PDF signature is too convenient
4. PDF Expert doesn't support file formats conversion, what a pity.
5. No OCR function, so PDF Expert can't deal with the scanned version of the forms.

Supported Languages: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Chinese Simplified, Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese, Russian, Ukrainian

The Mac OS has a built-in PDF previewer, but it's too simple, and Adobe's Acrobat is too complicated. Compared with them, PDF Expert is on the ‘sweet spot’ that makes people feel comfortable, not too simple, not too complicated. More importantly, the price, Colormango has won an exclusive discount through hard communication with the developer.
