PDF (Portable Document Format) is one of the most widely used document formats that ensure safety and information integrity on any platform. For example, a PDF you create will have the same appearance on Linux, Windows, and Android – everywhere. That’s why PDF is widely used. Moreover, PDF is regarded as one of the safest file types. That’s why using PDF is the best way to submit your CV or send your story to others.
After creating PDF, you might need to edit it. You can do it either by editing the source, but how about editing other PDFs? There are many PDF editors you can find out on the internet where most of them are paid software. There are several free tools as well to help you out! Let’s check out the best free PDF editors for everyone.

If you like to work offline, there’s also Sejda Desktop. However, the free edition has some limitations like page limit (200 pages max), file size (50MB max) or number of PDFs to edit (3 PDFs per hour). But I believe the free edition is more than enough for everyday usage.
