    Looks nice, but the Bookmarks feature doesn’t work. Add some, set their page numbers and it works while you are in the editor, but save file and open in evince and they all point to page 1. Re-open in the editor and they are all pointing to page 1 there as well. Also you can’t edit the page number you have set, or change bookmarks order. Too bad it’s useless. :( I didn’t test any other features.

    For those open to a commercial solution, try PDF Studio:
