Other Solutions to Edit PDF Free Online or Offline

1. Through Free Online PDF Editing Tools

Now some online PDF tools really helps when you just want to insert text and images to a PDF file. PDFescape is an example. By uploading your PDF file to it, you are able to insert text and images into a PDF file. However, the drawback is that you cannot delete text (correct typos) or images. It also lets users hide sensitive info by applying the whiteout tool.

2. Through Google Docs

Another free way to free edit PDF file is using Google Docs. Whether you have an image-based or native PDF file, you can upload it to Google Docs. Open it as a Google Document to edit. Insert, revised or delete text, just edit text for free. After free editing the PDF file, go to File > Download As> PDF. This way is a free way to edit PDF. It is so easy. When you editing a PDF file with Google Docs, it feels like you’re editing text in a Word processor. The only thing I don’t like it is that after you download your last PDF file, all the original images might have been lost.

3. Through Adobe® Reader

Sometimes you might need to participate in team work. In this case, it is needed to add comments on a PDF file or markup text. When doing this task, Adobe® Reader is a good choice. To some extent, it is a free PDF Editor as well. In the toolbar, you’ll see the comment tools: sticky note and highlight text. Select one of them, click on the PDF file to add sticky note or highlight text. It is so easy!

However, Adobe Acorbat Xi and Adobe Reader XI will be end of support on October 15, 2017. That means there'll be no more security updates from Adobe, and your PDF file and data might be exposed to hackers in this case. It's better for you to choose the best alternatives to Adobe Acrobat.
