Simple-to-configure and portable program that helps you generate PDF files by inserting custom text messages, images and geometrical shapes

editor's review





Free PDF Editor is a lightweight Windows program that lets you easily create PDF files with the aid of custom text messages, images and geometrical shapes.

The advantages of being portable

Since this is a portable program, it is important to mention that it doesn’t leave any traces in the Windows Registry.

You can copy it on any USB flash drive or other devices, and take it with you whenever you need to generate PDFs from scratch on the breeze, without having to go through installation steps.

Simple looks and configuration settings

The user interface of the tool is standard. You can insert text, images (e.g. GIF, PNG, JPG, BMP, ICO), rectangles and ellipses.

But you can also change text font and alignment, font size and color, as well as select border color, width and style (e.g. solid, dash, dot). In addition, you can add or delete a page, and configure page options (width and height, margin top, left, right and bottom).

Editing metadata and exporting options

Furthermore, you can change document preferences when it comes to the title, subject, author, keyword, date of creation and modification, software, page layout (single page, one column, two columns) and page mode (none, outlines, thumbs, full screen).

Once you have finished your work, you can save it as a Free PDF Editor project file (in case you want to further edit it), or export it as a PDF document.


The program uses a very low amount of system CPU and memory, and we haven't experienced any kind of problems during our tests. There is also a comprehensive help file available.

Bottom line

Indeed, Free PDF Editor doesn't offer you too many features or configurable advanced options, but it is a simple program that can easily create a PDF file without causing any problems. Since the tool is extremely easy to use, even by novices, we strongly recommend Free PDF Editor to all users.
