For example you may change the font or edit the text of a text object. You can call the picture editor to edit pictures or scanned files. At the right side of the window you find a color palette to change the text color and the color of line objects. If no object is selected you can call the page manager from the property editor panel to combine pdf files. add, delete, move, rotate, resize or extract pages. You also find a function to add page numbers or headers and footers there. The bookmark manager allows you to add new bookmarks or delete existing once. In the toolbar at the left side of the program you find tools to add new text and picture objects. Tools to add circles, rectangles, lines or freehand lines are found in the graphic object section. But you may also choose to add these objects as annotation objects which lay at the top of the regular document objects and can have an annotation message as property. In the annotation section you will also find the functions needed to markup text (highlight, strikeout, underline). In the form tool section you find all tools needed to add new form fields (text fields, checkboxes, radioboxes, list fields and comboboxes). You can select existing annoation and form fields objects with the pointer tool to modfiy there properties (for example fill out a form field).

In the edit menu you find functions to copy, paste and delete objects. If you want to copy from one pdf file to another you would need to combine both pdf files and make your copy and paste operations, finally you can delete all pages you do not need. Call the Page manager under Page/Page Manager to combine pdf files.

You can export the content of the pdf file as word file with text objects or without text objects (floating text).
