      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.

      Adobe Acrobat DC is a full featured PDF editor. PDF Reader has a nice featureset for a PDF ... Reader, but is far from a complete PDF Editor.

      PDF Reader is a PDF Reader, not a PDF Editor. It even says it in the name.
