  1. Hello,
    Honestly, I did have tried PDF Escape and PDFedit and they do work well to edit my PDF files. However, since the PDF escape , a free online PDF editor, cannot help process file more than 10MB and 100 pages, and the PDFfedit could not help save my PDF files as Word documents, I did tried far more and finally had some successes with some 100% free ones, like PDF Buddy and iCareAll PDF Editor and more.
    Hope my words also can help anyone there.
    Thanks for your nice work.
