    Its a great idea, but runs bad on my Windows 8.1 x64. I ran into the following Problems: - PDFEdit crashes sometimes, wile browsing for the File to open, or when you click on open. - PDFEdit crashes sometimes while saving Changes. - There is no undo Button - There is no function to adjust inserted Text (if the textsize was wrong, or does not fit the right place, you have to reload and re-edit the whole document) - After one hour i finally managed to insert two lines of Text at the right position. But after saving it, the file was corrupt. If there were no crashes, and corrupted output files, it would be a great tool. Edit: I was able to open the saved Files with PDFEdit again, but that did not help. Adobe Acrobat can not open the file. Edit2: I was also able to open the saved PDF Files with PDF Architect. After saving in inside PDF Architekt to a new file, i can now also open the Files with Adobe Reader. Strange

    Didn't manage to do anything successfully with this. Here's a list of problems I encountered: Crashed several times while trying to use to make a simple text edit. Text change tool defaults to dingbats font every time, have to manually sample font from document for every change. Text change could not replace any text in the document without misaligning or otherwise changing the appearance of the text. Text selection tool frequently selects a collection of unrelated things instead of the thing I was clicking on. I could not make the selections I wanted to because of this. Have to change back to selection tool every time before making any edit. Default install path is C:\

    It cannot open pdf files with non-ansi characters in path. I tried it and crash. Don't burn it. It is a good try. I will be back in 2 years.

    Installed, opened pdf, erred and crashed when trying to apply text to pdf. Possibly a compatibility issue with Windows 8.1? Did not try other features. Just from using the text tool you can tell it is not even close to being as dynamic like wiki screenshots make it appear.
