Master PDF Editor

Like many applications with a linux port this has a basic free version or you can pay for a full version.

https://code-industry.net/free-pdf-editor/

There are 3 download options.
The Ubuntu 32 bit 12-14 i386 will install under Orion with the addition of a hundred plus i386 files.
The Ubuntu 64 bit 12-14 package is a static binary and works without any additional files under Orion
The Ubuntu 64 bit 14-18 package will not install in Orion as it requires some qt5 libs - it may works with Scorpion

My needs are fairly simple in terms of sanitizing pdf files of personal data before making them available for public download and it works a treat - definitely nicer to use than Libreoffice which has been given the boot!

Re: Master PDF Editor

I just installed it and it certainly seems like it will fit my need more than adequately too! Nice find bin and thanks for posting it, the last time I searched for a Linux pdf editor I couldn't find anything that actually worked like I wanted it to. smile

Re: Master PDF Editor

Beware ................

The version 5.2.02 now prints a watermark "Created by Master PDF Editor" diagonally across the page when the previous (4.xx) version did not.
If you want to remove the watermark......pay up !

Re: Master PDF Editor

Seems there's some important features missing from the Master PDF Editor.
- No owner password protection to prevent further changes to PDF file/s
- No user password to open a PDF
- Custom stamps are very basic and clunky.  Difficult to add your personal signature as a stamp.
There's sure to be other issues.  I only just got started, but already decided to look for better alternative product.
YMMV

That's funny - I just click File>Properties>Security>Password Encryption to set a password that has to be used to open the file.

Not sure what your problem is with Stamps - seems fine to me

Have you got your Qt settings configured properly???
