Looking for it on Mac App Store

I always search apps on Mac App Store, once the Mac App Store is available.
There are many free apps.

But then again, you just registered here to post in this thread and "resurrecting" it after two weeks. Maybe you forgot your links? Or the invisible images?

Ah, of course, now you search the fora again.

I may have misunderstood you, if so, I am sorry for this. But your post looked like a SPAM post, where after a certain time, additional information gets edited in, like invisible images to create traffic somewhere else, or links to some other site, that is just SPAM again.

And yes, it is friendly here, I am just one of the more unfriendly ones. Don't let your journey stop here, just because I seem to be rude, as most others here are not.

FYI, it is much better to not reply to spammers (not saying that jame.browe22 is, just in general) at all; just use the report feature of the forums and report them to the Mods. They will determine if someone is a spammer or not and take the appropriate measures.

But back on topic, there are no FREE (or even CHEAP) PDF EDITORS in the MAS. Most allow for simple markups, almost none allow for direct editing.

If you wanna edit some contents in your PDF file directly? you can take Adobe Acrobat for reference.

LibreOffice!!

LibreOffice is great, free, and comes packed with awesomeness; including the built-in ability to import and edit pdf files.

Last I checked, Adobe Acrobat wasn't FREE (or even Cheap).

yes, Acrobat's $450.Unlike Skim. But it is worth saying that Acrobat is an excellent tool -- and nothing matches its complete range of functions.

I think that this is given because it is from the company who created the PDF format. But the title of the thread is "Free Mac PDF Editor" not "best Mac PDF Editor".

another option

Have to add that I find PDF Studio 7 Pro to be quite functional and even more customizable for everything I need to do, at $125. I'm becoming addicted to being able to customize the toolbar, based on what I'm working on.

AFAIK, you can add annotations and such in preview itself. I use Acrobat at work and don't see much difference than preview (at least for my use). Although, i am curious what Acrobat does that preview doesn't.

If you stick with freeware, Preview may be the best choice. But there are lots of editing function limitation. In my personal experience,the freeware always have some problems more or less. its quality can not be guaranteed.

PDF is a publishing format not a working/production format, that's the simple reason for the lack of editing tools. It's not really meant to be easy to crack open for the average user as content within might be copyrighted (not only the text itself but fonts as well).

Perhaps your best bet is to copy the text (and fix any typographical errors) from within a PDF viewer - I take it it's "real" text and not images of text - into a word processor/text editor and go from there?

[EDIT: Otherwise I recommend Skim as well, but as you say that's mostly a viewer - a good one! - with the capability to add notes.]

PDFs were never meant to be edited hence the lack of a good editor (even 4 years from the original post). Its a distribution format.

Adobe shuts down CS2 activation server, puts software and serials online
By Craig Simms | January 8, 2013 | 1

Adobe has provided full downloads and serials to Creative Suite 2 (CS2) on its website, as it has shut down the activation servers for the product.

According to a post on its forums from Dov Isaacs, the downloads and serials are only intended for those who have already acquired CS2 legally, but can no longer activate it. Nonetheless, it has resulted in a free-for-all, with bargain hunters grabbing the software as quickly as possible; the only requirement is to sign up for an Adobe ID account.

If you're considering flaunting Adobe's line and downloading the software anyway, remember that the software itself is almost eight years old, and will likely have issues with modern operating systems.

Effective December 13, Adobe disabled the activation server for CS2 products and Acrobat 7 because of a technical glitch. These products were released over 7 years ago and do not run on many modern operating systems. But to ensure that any customers activating those old versions can continue to use their software, we issued a serial number directly to those customers. While this might be interpreted as Adobe giving away software for free, we did it to help our customers.
Official download version, including one activation free serial number (activation servers are offline):

(All CS2 apps are also available in different languages, for example in french and in german.)
