PDF editing software


Can anybody recommend some good, commercial PDF editing software for Linux?

I have approx 50 desktops and 15 servers to look after so it can't be prohibitively expensive. I'd like to install an RPM on each machine locally.

Thanks for any recommendations.

Ian

I presumed the commercial stuff (maybe wrongly) would run better and be well supported....

If you put pdf editor in google's special linux search engine ( http://google.com/linux ), you'll get some idea of what is available.

They are free, so I'd suggest you install a few, and try them

OpenOffice can edit pdf's and save them but has limits.

You'd have to test it with what you are doing for sure before you install it to all the system.

In which way should software run better, just because you have paid for it?
