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???

Re: Master PDF Editor

masterpdf didn't work on my machine

foxit did and has the same features of adobe reader, even better in some aspects

Curious.

Just installed my old 4.389 qt5 version and it's OK on Scorpion. Not tried the latest for obvious reasons smile
