Free PDF Manager for Windows 10 (Save $44.95) on Microsoft App StoreAffiliate

How often will you need to arrange a PDF file? My bet is rarely, if ever. So I will never pay $44.95 for this program when there are numerous freeware and free online converters that do the same job. But $0 is okay and worth a minute of your time to click through, just to save you time looking for a free PDF arranger in the future.

    I don't know the quality of this program, but I do know Windows 10 does not come with a decent PDF reader by default. Chrome will open PDFs, but I'd be buggered if it can fill all kinds of forms and save the contents of those forms successfully.

      a little off topic but pdf files in modern computers are not opened by an app. they are opened by the browser. so chrome, edge, firefox.
      Adobe reader the app needs to be installed as a separate application in order to open pdf's outside the browser and also edit the editable form types. pdf's with editable fields cannot be completed inside the browser.
      I'm not sure if the official adobe pdf reader app inside microsoft's store counts as the proper adobe reader or not (ie may not allow editing of fields)

    •  

      I think for forms you need adobe reader, which I assume is still free.

    pdf xchange viewer is great as a reader

    thanks OP, it's free so up vote

    This app doesn't seem to read or edit PDF's at all, the only thing it can really do is split or merge pages of PDFs. Not a very useful program to be honest.

      Yup this seems misleading.

      • +3 votes

        On reflection I should have written PDF "arranger" instead of "editor", and that's probably the reason why the program is called "PDF Manager". Sorry, I didn't mean to mislead anybody but the correct term didn't come to mind when I posted.

        I have edited the post to use the correct term. Thank you for drawing the mistake to my attention.

      Rearranging pages is editing them.

        When you are going to sign a contract, oops my name is wrong on page 3. Can you change it ?…. Done, I rearrange it to page 5… LOL

      Heaps of options to read PDF files. How often do you need to edit a PDF file? Very rarely. Splitting pages, etc. is something I do often, but painful to do with anything that is free.

      •  

        What have you tried?

        I have used for many years PDFill PDF Tools Free. https://www.pdfill.com/pdf_tools_free.html

        Pretty basic program but on the odd occasion when I need to convert graphic to PDF, convert PDF to graphic, split a PDF, extract some pages, merge PDF files, etc, it just works.

        I think there is some free registration required but it was so long ago I can't remember and there has never been any unwanted follow-up.

    just my two cents… there is a free PDF reader at Microsoft Store called XODO Docs which allows you to do some PDF manipulation as well, anyway thanks for sharing, will grab it and see how it goes.

    • +2 votes

      yup, been using that one too, XODO is a good app for free. It has lots of features, and isn't as demanding as Adobe

    There are websites and Chrome plugins that let you fill form and also merge or rotate PDFs. Quick google search for "online PDF editor" will give you some examples.

      And a tonne of malware/spyware!

      •  

        You don't need to install anything… they work online?

        (though it should be noted if it contains personal info, you wouldn't want to upload anything online. In which case, use Windows app or rely on the PDF editing features of Libre Office Draw.)

  •  

    Inkscape FTW.

  •  

    Are there any decent pdf and scanner app for androids the like of Readdle app?

  •  

    anyway I can get this on Windows 7? does it save the exe anywhere on your hard drive? (work collegue is on Win 7 still and he'd find this heaps useful - splitting and merging PDF's)

    No one is using foxit?

    • +5 votes

      Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think the reader version of Foxit does the management bits.

  •  

    Thanks for this.

    I've always depended on the online services for this sort of thing and it always gave me the s***s if I had to work with sensitive information. It's exactly the document manager that I need, except for not having PDF compression tools.

    And thanks to ex1ferra and ozblogger for cluing me into XODO. Looks good too. I'm just a long time user of Foxit but if I weren't I'd probably give that a go. It's feature list seems spot on for my usage scenarios.

    lol who would pay for this anyway?

    I recommend Foxit PDF Reader. Its Free. It fills in forms, allows you to comment, print to pdf.
    It does not allow you to rearrange pages in a pdf or merge pdf's in to one.
    Foxit works on all version of windows xp, vista, 7, 10. You can copy the exe around and don't need the installer (except for some corner cases).
    I use it on Ipad as well, its great to bookmark and browse through pdfs.

      I have used Foxit it predominantly and I find the measurement tool built-in very helpful.

      As for splitting and merging PDFs, I use PDFSam, free and simple to use.

      •  

        Agree w/Foxit - I like it too.

        If you are sick of maintaining Java (or if its eternal update popups bother you), OPs PDF Manager App grants you (two) convenient feats - always updated (via the Store) and No Java popups/requirements (PDFSam needs Java to work).

        My argument is moot if you "need" (or like..) Java for other stuff.

    If you have Microsoft Office, you can convert Word docs into .pdf by selecting that as the file type when you save it. Also, another good free program which I believe warrants a mention is PDFSam. Of course, it's got a basic version that's free, then there's a paid version which has extra features, but the free version was a godsend when I recently had to scan & collate a 500+ page document, as it allowed me to merge, alternate pages, etc. with my scans, without a problem. Definitely worth checking out if making .pdfs from scanned docs is something you need to do.

  •  

    This is a handy program for joining PDF files together - something that I need to do occasionally

  •  

    If it reduced the size of the PDF, it would be useful. It doesn't.

    Anyone got a non-online tool to do that?

    • +2 votes

      According to Deakin University IT Help, doPDF for Windows and the built-in Preview App for Mac.

      •  

        Thanks for the info. The doPDF page looks like its a PDF printer. I'll take a look.

        But what I'm really after is a PDF compressor. Take an existing PDF and reduce its size.

        •  

          Surely (free, open sores) Calibre would compress PDFs if you wanted it to? (I don't know but it's meant to be the Swiss Army knife of books so I guess it does)

        •  

          There is some limited control over PDF output sizes in doPDF according to the product page.

          PDF output presets
          You can create high quality PDF files (i.e. for printing) or smaller files (i.e. for web publishing), depending on your needs. You can also choose to balance the two options by using the medium quality preset.

    PDFill PDF Tools has always been free and can merge, split/reorder, encrypt/decrpyt, rotate/crop, reformat, add header/footer, add watermark by text or image, convert to/from image plus more…

    •

      Been my simple goto for many years.

    •  

      Just tried to check this out. Downloading it is a nightmare - round and round and round and still no download link.

      UPDATE: turned out to be a FireFox issue. Downloads fine with IE.

    Does it come with free background cryptocurrency mining malware too?

    These rediculous RRP "free" apps are the least trustworthy. RRP is clearly BS and it's all a desperate attempt to make people install it.
    Why they want you to install it 8s the real question.

  •  

    I am using NitroPDF for editing
    It’s much cheaper compare to adobe acrobat pro but it does PDF editing quite well

    However, if you simply need to fill out a PDF form, Adobe acrobat free version works as long as the form is created by a PDF software.

  •  

    Can you remove watermarks?

  •  

    Does this have a find and replace all?

  •  

    what are people using for print to pdf?

  •  

    Thanks OP, this is super useful!

  •  

    shit app

  •  

    Thanks op downloading.

    Anyone know how big this app is? I have been d/ling for 6 hours at 181.1 kb/s on my chit internode adsl2 connection. So far I have 434 mb of the file.

    Cheers

      Approximate size in the Windows Store app info section says 20.9 MB. Took only a few minutes to download and install on my 25 Mbps connection. Something's not right there.

  •  

    There's still 12 minutes left so be quick .

  •  

    Now showing $2.95 - I will pass on this.
