Free Alternative to Adobe Acrobat | Edit any PDF for free – LibreOffice Draw

Editing PDFs can be a daunting task, i personally fell for the 7 days trial for a small edit in a pdf file.

It almost costed me 15USD , but Adobe folks were generous to cancel same when i contacted as soon as my card was charged.

Long story short, i wanted a free tool to edit pdfs, tried many chrome addons, few software etc. but nothing was as good as adobe acrobat capabilities.

I already use LibreOffice since last 5 years and was not aware that LibreOffice Draw can also act a an excellent PDF editor.

During some more searching found about this Gem, and now all my PSD editing happens in LibreOffice Draw.

It is so much easy and biggest thing is it is completely Free and opensource. another reason to not use cracked versions.

I doesn’t use MS office as for my casual use LibreOffice is more than enough for me, i use it with mix of gdrive docs and, i don’t own MS office and haven’t feel a need to purchase it yet.

Thanks a ton to the opensource community for LibreOffice , it is such a great Gem.
