Very nice thread. Mostly I do only a little PDF, but I plan some more. Bookmarking and annotation features would be interesting.
So I probably will buy this, from Flexisoft
rather than Ashampoo (btw, Ashampoo has an interesting bundle today on Bits du Jour, does not include this program), as my long-term go-to PDF program. The Flexisoft I have now is a Basic freebie.
PDF Xchange Editor has a good reputation and it sometimes my default PDF reader. I'm not sure if it is as Firefox capable as it used to be (I often prefer a plug-in for quick reading because then I have a bookmark without hassle.) My main Firefox is 52-ESR.
For free PDF editing, simple changes from a Word Processing perspective, AbleWord and LibreOffice/OpenOffice have been recommended. Gizmo also mentions Draw. Also Google Docs for online. It is likely that the features are basic compared to these programs. Atlantis, I think not (my fav WP.)
In your experience, what are the big advantages of a paid program, and especially of Flexisoft? Say over the free PDF XChange-Editor or any other comparisons. Or the advantages of XChange paid from Tracker. (I consider them the silver standard of proven inexpensive PDF software.)

Very solid on Flexi - mentions OCR (but how does that compare with Abbyy as dedicated OCR)
PDF Xchange Editor
and a bit more
A competent article despite the broken English.

Mostly moderate price or subscription, no freebies, the comment notes the lack of PDF Xchange Editor, and we can add Flexisoft-Iceni-Ashampoo.
