FREE PDF tools to edit, fill in or design forms and combine PDF files

PDFree PDF editorFescape is a free on-line PDF editor, form filler and form design tool.  This tool is one that I use all the time and wanted to share with you.  If you are like me, you don’t need this ability often enough to justify buying expensive software.   It is completely free with no water marks, no ads, no registration required and no fees for most of the tools.

If you want to create your own forms for others to fill in and protect your content then you need to register. Registration is free and it creates an account on the site for you to use. You can have the edited forms emailed to you or download them.

With the on-line editor you can add shapes, text and white out areas so they can be edited.  You can move and delete PDF pages, change information tags, encrypt the contents using a password and add and edit sticky notes.

With the form filler you are able to fill out forms using the existing form fields(check boxes, radio buttons and drop down fields are supported) or text tool, style form fields (font, size, color…) and modify existing form fields and tab from field to field.

There is no software to download and install, no flash or active X and you don’t need adobe reader.

The second tool I wanted to share with you is a free on-line pdf combining tool.

When I put together professional property packages or brochures for my clients I turn them into PDF files so that they can be easily emailed and retain their sharp clean look.  Many times I have multiple pages that need to be combined into one pdf file.

It is drop dead simple.  You turn your word or other documents into pdf files and upload them to this site. When you have all the pages uploaded you just select Join!  The files are combined and you save the combined file to your computer.  It is that easy.
