I'm new to PDF development folks! I'm a senior software engineer and have been given the task of converting some of our many documents that are created on the fly to be created in PDF format on the fly - insurance certs, schedules etc. I will be using pdflib with the textblocks, picture fields and templates etc.
The problem is this - these documents change very regularly and if I use Word to create them I then have to use AA to highlight textblocks and picture inserts (pictures changes on the fly also) etc but every time a document changes I would have to recreate the fields which can be upwards of 50! Is there any software that can edit the PDF files directly (and edit fields) and is as good as WYSIWYG editor - none I have looked at so far seem any good?
