Editing pdf files was never so easy.. Thanks for sharing it with us.
I was searching just for this thing man! Thanks a lot for sharing.
Such a useful article. i usually got so pissed while editing now i can see how easy it is.
Hey, Rickpicard, Is it true? How could it be ? I've used this editor for several months, but don't find it has a feature of reducing file size.
sorry honey, may reduce the size of the overall document but in my case, with house drawings, all the text became blurry...unreadable...
useful PDF article !!!
I just understand that only on a PDF editor, it is possible to edit PDF file. In the past, I thought on Adobe Reader, it is able to edit PDF. How stupid I was. Wondershare PDF Editor is a cost-effective app for me to handle PDF files. Compared with the pricy, I like Wondershare PDF Editor more.
