Why PDFedit?

People sometimes like to edit PDF documents. KWord has the ability to import, edit, and re-export PDFs, but the formatting often gets messed up during import. pdfjam is a command-line tool that allows you to do some sophisticated PDF manipulating (rotating, combining, splitting), but it also has limitations, and sometimes people are more comfortable with a point-and-click graphical user interface (GUI).


The pdfedit package is no longer available in the Ubuntu repositories as it depends on old qt3 libraries that Ubuntu no longer provides.
