PDF editor for Linux?


Active Member
Does anyone know of a good PDF editor for Linux?
I have searched several times and tried LibreOffice draw but cannot find one which will do what I want.
I have a template of an invoice which I created and fill in the information and print out. Currently I use a program by Tracker Software called PDF-XChange which is a Windows only program. It allows me to enter text in a 'typewriter' mode and fill in lines of text. Like a 'Form fill' :)
I don't want to edit pictures, drawings, or graphics, just text.
Happy to pay for a program which will work well and do what I need.
It just annoys me to no end that I have to fire up my Windows box in order to fill out my invoices.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for the suggestion. It has been many, many years since I last used Adobe Acrobat and I had completely forgotten about it! It also did not show up in any of my searches for a Linux PDF editor.
I will check it out. Perhaps it will do what I need :)
I am concerned about the version and any security vulnerabilities though. From the article:
Since Adobe no longer supports Linux, you won’t be able to install the latest Adobe Reader in Linux. The last available build is version 9.5.5.
