Working with PDF’s


Occasionally I get asked to edit and amend some PDF documents, we only have 2 full Adobe Acrobat licenses on site and I don’t have access to one. I can create PDF documents pretty easily from Word and Excel 2007 by using a Microsoft Office Add-in (available here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=4d951911-3e7e-4ae6-b059-a2e79ed87041&displaylang=en) I can also produce PDF documents from any application that allows you to print by using CutePDF, which installs itself as a printer (available here: http://www.cutepdf.com/)

I few years ago I needed to actually reorder and edit some documents I found the PDF Toolkit Builder (PDFTK) immensely helpful as it allows you to collate and / or split existing PDF documents (you can also stamp and even rotate existing documents) check out PDFTK Builder (available here: http://portableapps.com/apps/office/pdftk_builder_portable)
