    LibreOffice is open source and lets you edit PDF, create them and when you open them you can save them in various formats.

    It's not really a specific solution for PDF but it works good.

    Thanks for your suggestion.
    Can I also convert various files like WORD and JPG to PDF with this?


    Thanks.

    OS X can convert any document to PDF natively.

    yes for Word, not sure about JPG, but you should be able to import JPG inside a word and convert it.

    Any file you open with preview allows you to export it as a PDF document. :)

    I use preview, but when I had issues with merging multiple pdfs into a single pdf. I went with the old standby - acrobat. I went with the trial, Adobe charges a lot for a single application, but if the need is very short term, use the trial of acrobat.

    For me important is that I can convert/combine/scan multible PDF/WORD/JPG etc. in a single PDF file and export PDF to WORD and JPG.
    PDF editing is not a must have function.
