Add, remove or edit Hyperlinks in PDF Files with PDF Link Editor

Adobe Reader features a link tool that can edit the text formatted with a link behind it. If the text is the URI, Universal Resource Indicator, you can directly edit the text with the text touch up tool. This, however, must be done manually. So, if there are multiple links editing them individually can become quite a task. You must search, replace and then next, repeatedly. PDF Link Editor cuts short this tiresome process. PDF Link Editor can edit, replace, remove and extract PDF links in batch mode. Its layout is simple yet, quite intuitive.
