Windows 7: PDF Editing

PDF Editing

Hey guys, I really need to Edit a PDF. Just a simple Circle or Oval in Red, highlighting something. So I did my usual Google search and found one article here. It was no help so though I would ask the question myself.

1. Is there a free PDF Editor for W7?
I don't think I am interested in a Trial Version.

and

2. I see this Adobe Link, but don't want to use it in fear of it being a Trial Program. I know Adobe stuff usually an't free. I'm sick and broke, need to Edit this Document for my doctor. I'll leave this link in case someone can tell me their experience. I'm guessing/hoping this is an older version that they are letting folks download for free.
https://www.adobe.com/support/downlo...jsp?ftpID=1851

If this don't work, I will re-scan the Document and save as png or something, that way I think I can then Edit it. Either way, I need to learn to edit these things,, so that I can help other computer folks as you guys do. I participate in other forums and try and help others often, mostly with Linux.

Thanks, Nasty7!

If I understand you correctly that all you want to do is add markings and/or highlight, many free PDF readers allow you to make and save such changes. Two I use are Foxit Reader and NitroPDF. Google for the urls and other similar free programs.

I'll do that, thanks. I think I've used Nitro just for reading PDF's, thanks again.

NitroPDF isn't free?

PhantomPDF 8.0 is not free either?
https://www.foxitsoftware.com/pdf-editor/

Maybe you mean this Portable app
Foxit Reader Portable | PortableApps.com - Portable software for USB, portable and cloud drives

I wouldn't mind paying but my health is really bad and have no money. I'm sure these are really good though.

I don't see it as being free? Free for thirty days maybe. Please post links if you see things for free.

Thanks!

I think Foxit Reader is going to work gini, thanks a lot. It works in Windows and Linux, which I use a lot!

At first it looked like it was just a reader and you needed the PhantomPDF 8.0 to Edit, but it is just what I needed!

I've been using Adobe Acrobat Reader DC for over a year now and not been asked to pay anything yet.
