Yes, aside from being a PDF editor, ApowerPDF also supports deleting/splitting/merging/inserting PDF pages. You can try it yourself.

Install and activation was quick. I was able to paste the activation code into the program using ctrl+v. However, like someone mentioned earlier, cut and pasting with the mouse did not work.

I played with the program for a few minutes. I like that I can edit pre-existing PDFs easily, and create PDFs from a blank page directly in the program, but I couldn't find a spellcheck or a word-wrap feature.

I realize that this is not marketed as a word processor, but a word-wrap and spellcheck feature would be very helpful when editing within ApowerPDF, if it's not already in the program.

Wow, thanks for the offer, had tried the Trial version, and was never impressed, glad to try the paid version, but not much difference from trial.
This PDF editor actual price is way overpriced .
Poorly designed, very limited & Basic, Unless overlooked in it's very limited options, does not even have OCR options, and could not get Apower editor to even make scanned PDF docs editable.
It cannot edit or change all PDF info on loaded PDF forms , only certain limited info on forms
It cannot save in different formats, or even do basic conversions from PDF to WORD or other formats etc.
Who would pay for this editor each year? Even free PDF editors have more options than this one. Sorry, must pass on this one.Thks

Installed fine and activated without any problems. Used to edit a form I had created with Adobe Acrobat that had fillable form fields. I was able to make a simple text change in a matter of seconds that would have taken ten times longer with Acrobat. Great program!!

Very difficult to register and activate this software. Apparently there is no provision for cut and paste. Anyone wanting to activate and register I strongly suggest you write down the information so it will be handy. After attempting twice I simply deleted the program. Shouldn't be this much of a pain in the posterior to install. Didn't use to be that way.

Most GOTD offerings are excellent.
However, I do not think it appropriate to offer products that are going to expire.
Too many are now offering 1 year or less usage.
This becomes try before you buy and not in the spirit of GOTD.
One does not expect free support or upgrades but at least that it will keep working..
Why invest time in something that you will lose in the future.

"Add/remove password protection"

I've just read the manual, and it seems this is misleading. Many so-called pdf editors pretend to do this, but they can't do what most people would think it means and would like to do : remove restrictions placed on documents by the third party which created them.

Oftentimes, you download a pdf document from the web, only to discover that you cannot add your own comments to it, highlight parts of it, copy and paste its title in order to name the file on your PC, print it, etc.

This is a royal pain, and that's where one needs a program to break the password protection. Unfortunately, all this software seems to do, along with many others, is remove the password protection if you know the password. Thank you very much !

I only found once a genuine pdf protection remover here, and it's called Wow Tron PDF Restriction Remover.

This GOTD appeared in the inbox at 8:05 AM EST. I have been trying since then to simply register an account in order to activate the program. It's now 12:20PM & still no success. There has been no response to an email sent to their support site.

The first few hours their server could not be contacted. Then I got connected & actually received the 6 digit verification code which was correctly entered & submitted. The first 3 times the response was "unknown error." The next 2 were "incorrect code."

This is entirely too much trouble. The download was deleted.

What will happen after the 1 year of licence is over? It is completely not usable or become crippleware? If there is a charge after that 1 year, will there be an option to upgrade at a price? How much?

Like other free PDF editors, this program can't edit existing PDF content or reformat and reflow the text. It can only add new content on top of the existing layer, covering something up if necessary. In any case I don't feel like messing around with Apowersoft's 1-year license - all their programs have registration issues, and tend to become unregistered at random.

DO NOT BELIEVE THE COMMENTS.

I used a private domain email to register a new account no problem for this software.
Works magnificently for what I needed to do today!

Opens and easily edits pdfs and allowed me to easily add different levels of encryption!
No watermark.

Allows me to add text and signature as I needed.
And remove and add multiple pages without losing fill in text like I was with Adobe!

Saved the day GOTD thanks for offering this!

Any software which claims to "edit PDF files" must edit the original text.

What this software does is not editing. It whites out existing text, and then the user must attempt to replace that text with text which has the identical font and size, which is exactly aligned with the existing text, and which takes up exactly the original space. That's not editing; that's more like forgery.
Besides, editing would mean being able to add or subtract entire sentences, not just little snippets.

Lastly, why bother? There are excellent always-free PDF tools which do just about everything this software does:
* PDF Xchange Viewer: https://www.tracker-software.com/product/pdf-xchange-viewer
* Nitro PDF Reader: https://www.gonitro.com/pdf-reader

Never mind the registration aggro, I think this is almost certainly another PDF painting program, ie 'editing' is done by painting a white (or paper colour) rectangle over the text to be 'edited', and then the new text is placed over the old now covered text in its own selection. Apart not being editing as we normally know it, this type of editing (and redaction) is wide open to reverse editing, as in deleting the painted on bits... though it may be possible to 'fix' the painting by re-printing the PDF as another PDF which will bake in in the modifications - go figure...

This is...interesting: while installing and registering THIS PROGRAM it took me unto me into my RE-REGISTERING (in-addition) Apowersoft Screen Recorder Pro (already installed and registered, formerly) AFTER MY entering registration for this...program! One doesn't KNOW WHAT--if one could re-register...itself: SUDDENLY BECOME a "Trial Version"--one might have OTHER INSTALLS from this vender reverting BACK TO "Trials" as well? So, carry on with THIS INSTALL--at cost of...former ones, probably?

Well, let's see...AGAIN: after a computer re-start (windows update...installation), opening this program THEN-GRANTS a pop-up window indicating I haven't purchased a "VIP Account"--and, hence, I may...use it with watermarks, and, ads!? (Re-starting...Screen Recorder Pro--IT INDICATES it has reverted to the...Trial Version, additionally? Wasn't this a...recent offering, meanwhile?) Then, accessing Account for...THIS PROGRAM a second time--I get that registration request for...Screen Recorder Pro, AGAIN!! (I got up too...early for this?)
