Download Master PDF Editor 4 For Linux (Free To Use Version)

Master PDF Editor is a proprietary application to edit PDF documents on Linux, Windows and macOS. It can create, edit (insert text or images), annotate, view, encrypt, and sign PDF documents.

With version version 5, Master PDF Editor has removed some features from its free to use version, like editing or adding text, inserting images, and more - when using such tools, the application adds a big watermark to the PDF document unless users buy the full version (around $83).

Master PDF Editor 4 though, which is free for non-commercial use with no restrictions (at least on Linux, I'm not sure about macOS and Windows), can still be downloaded and works well, even though it's not linked on the application official website.

Master PDF Editor features:

  • Create fillable PDF forms (with text fields, buttons, check-boxes, etc.) and fill in PDF forms
  • Optical character recognition
  • Move, insert, remove, crop or rotate PDF document pages
  • Create, edit and remove PDF bookmarks
  • Check digital signatures, create new ones and sign PDF documents with digital certificate
  • Optimize PDF documents
  • Encrypt PDF filesIn most cases you should download the Qt5 version. The Qt4 version of Master PDF Editor is for very old Linux distributions.
  • Create PDF documents from scanned documents / existing files

The application may also be used as a PDF viewer (it opens PDFs in tabs), but that's probably not something most of you care about since it's the Master PDF Editor editing capabilities that makes this application very useful.
