Nitro PDF Reader is a handy PDF editor that covers all the basic tasks most people perform on a daily basis with PDF documents.

With Nitro PDF Reader you can not only read PDF files on your computer, but also edit them in several ways: you can annotate PDF documents, insert notes, and highlight, cross-out or underline certain text. Plus Nitro PDF Reader also lets you extract all images in a PDF or save all the text inside the PDF in plain text, removing all the formatting and making it easier to edit.

Another great feature in Nitro PDF Reader is a virtual printer, with which you can convert any document to PDF – as long as the application you use to open it has printing capabilities. All you need to do is choose the Print option and select the Nitro PDF printer.

Nitro PDF Reader features a nicely designed interface that makes the program a pleasure to use. Plus the program seems to have solved the unstability issues that affected earlier versions, so there's really no reason why you shouldn't give it a try!

Nitro PDF Reader is a full featured PDF reader with annotation tools, image and text extractors and a special tool to convert documents to PDF.
