Lightbulb PDF Printers/Convertors etc

Here's some Apps that you might find useful, All are FREE

After installation you'll see a new printer listed, although it's actually a virtual one. It's selectable from the printers list in your PC.

BullZip, Doro PDF Writer, PDFCreator, PrimoPDF, doPDF

Online - Online converter - convert video, images, audio and documents for free - Does various other file conversions too.

For general PDF viewing etc, Foxit is very good, & safer than Adobe which always has Lots of Ongoing security problems = getting infected via Malware with fake PDF's !

Does anyone know of any (not too expensive) tools for editing the text in PDFs, for example changing a font or changing characters?

Trying to remember back several years - I believe the "Ghostscript" program can take the PDF document and generate a set of Postscript commands which create the document. The Postscript source listing, in turn, can be edited to change wording, fonts, etc. Of course this only works if the PDF was generated directly from a document, rather than from a graphic image of a rendered document. And, at best, it's cumbersome and tedious.

For me the best print pdf's is: PDF reDirect, are free and you can preview the document:

PDF reDirect - The free PDF Creator alternative to pdf995, cutepdf and freepdf

PDF ReDirect - CNET Download.com

Best regards
