What are the best ways to redact a PDF?
Personally if it is highly classified I wouldn't use any form of electronic reactions on it's own.I would print off the pdf document, then proceed to use a permanent black marker to black out the confidential parts of the document. Then I would further tipex/whiteout the parts i marked with the black marker, then black parker ontop of the tipex/whiteout. This would be done on both sides of the page so you cannot pull it up to the light and see the words. After all this is done, I would scan the page transformation it back into a pdf then use Adobe PDF “redact" feature to do a final reaction on the classified document.This may be overkill, but this ensures pretty much no one on gods green earth other then those privy to such information can/will know what is exactly enclosed in said document.Regards,Ash
What is a good website for free books?
Edit Oct 2014: and seem to be the two working versions now. Edit July 2014:  Bookfi is gone, but seems to be the official clone now. Edit April 2014:  bookza is down, but /, another clone of bookOS/za is up now!  Also,  is another clone.  These just pop up!Edit January 2014: is a functional clone of bookos that's live today!Edit December 2013:  Unsurprisingly bookos seems down for good now.  At the moment, it seems is unbeatable.  Direct downloads, amazing selection, no ads, etc...  prolly won't stay up for too long though.

What is the easiest way to edit a PDF?
In my understanding, you want to change original text in PDF, am I right?If your PDF is native file which is searchable and selectable, you can open it with PDFelement on your PC or Mac, and directly edit it under “Edit” mode. (see image below) Edited text would automatically match original font and size.If your PDF is scanned or images, you need to OCR(Optical Character Recognition) first to convert it into searchable and editable file. PDFelement 6 Pro can complete the OCR.Original file:After OCR:After OCR, then you can edit the PDF file directly under “Edit” mode.If you want to edit PDF on you iPhone, you can have PDFelement for iOS. As I know, it is the only free App offering PDF text editing and converting feature in Apple Store. (Please note, iOS version does not include OCR, therefore, you can only edit native PDF file. For scanned PDF, you can only annotate with drawing tool)
