free pdf semi-editor?

i dont like acrobat, since it doesnt ever want to fully close,(keeps process running in backgroud many times). i have been using foxit, which is good, but is there another free pdf reader that also will allow me to make minor changes, or overlay text? foxit does it, but leaves a nice big stamp on the top unless i buy it.

What I use.

In reply to: free pdf semi-editor?

I have my stuff in source format and either save as PDF from my office app or use PDF995 to create such from other apps.

Hint? I don't edit a PDF. I edit my source.

Forms don't require editing.

In reply to: ok....

A PDF "fill in form" doesn't require an editor. Maybe they didn't create it properly?

foxit will do it, but it is only available in the pro version which you need to buy

Seems fair to me.

In reply to: no...

I think this comes down to both common sense (use what works) and that not everything is free.

-> Have you googled this word?
