    It has more festures in the payed version and thus suites my usecase and it actually works on linux and does not just say it does and then it doesnt, at least that was the case with pdfsam in the extended version.

    It does a horrible job with PDF forms. They work ok as long as you open them in Master PDF, but they don't transport well to other common PDF viewers.

    Scribus cannot edit PDF files. You can only export into PDF. But you cannot open or import PDF.

    @coth : Scribus can absolutely open and save PDF files. It is not perfect but for simple documents, it works nice enough.

    Great little tool, but very specific to reorganising PDF documents. Not enough features to be called an alternative.
