Master PDF Editor for Mac is a straightforward, easy to use application for working with PDF documents equipped with powerful multi-purpose functionality. With Master PDF Editor for macOS, you can easily view, create, and modify PDF documents. The application enables you to merge several files into one, split a source document into multiple documents, and also to comment, sign, and encrypt PDF files.

Features and Highlights

Modify text and objects
With the PDF Editor app, you can add text with any formatting to a PDF document or edit existing text. You can also insert images to the document, select and move objects, change the size of objects, save images to a file, and copy objects to the clipboard.

Annotate PDF documents
Powerful annotation tools such as Sticky Note, Measuring tools, and Shapes, as well as the enhanced editing capabilities provided by the Strikethrough, Underline, and Highlight functions, will make your work easier than ever. Create unique Stamps and use them when reviewing the document or making a note of its status.

Create and fill in PDF forms
With the program, it is very simple to edit the various elements of interactive PDF forms such as buttons, text fields, checkboxes, and more, as well as implement event handlers for predefined user actions. Automatic calculation and data validation with JavaScript is supported.

Optical character recognition
Optical character recognition allows the ability to search for text fast and efficiently, as well as to edit scanned documents and documents containing images.

Operations on PDF pages
It supports both the merging and spiting of PDF files. It enables you to easily move, remove, insert, and rotate pages in PDF documents as well as change their size.

PDF Bookmarks
Create, edit, and remove bookmarks. Add bookmarks for specified pages or paragraphs to allow fast document navigation and efficiently look up information.

Virtual PDF printer
Master PDF Editor is installed as a virtual PDF printer, allowing you to easily print any documents from different applications supporting printing (e.d. Microsoft Word / Excel, OpenOffice).

Digital signatures
Check digital signatures, create new ones, and sign documents with a digital certificate. For PDF documents, a digital signature is the equivalent of the handwritten signature on paper documents, so the recipient of the signed document may be confident about its authenticity. *In order to use this function it is required to have a digital signing certificate.

Create PDF documents
PDFs can be created straight from paper documents using a scanner. It allows you to create documents from existing files, create empty documents, or insert empty pages into an existing document.

Note: The demo version allows you to try out all the features of the PDF Editor tool. There are no limitations except for the addition of a watermark on the output file.
