From https://code-industry.net/free-pdf-editor/:

"Following functions are locked in free version:

Paste to Multiple Pages
Save Optimized As...
Document Actions
Document JavaScript
Page Properties
Signing PDF with digital signature
Headers and Footers
Watermarks
Background"

Some of them, such as "Headers and Footers" were definitely not locked in v3.7.10 as I've used them before.

severach, there are a number of things that don't work in the free version of 4 that worked in the free version of 3. I have the PKGBUILD set up so all you should have to do is change the pkgver and update the checksums. If you change the pkgname, the packages should even be co-installable.

Insert Image TIFF does not work. I had to go back to 3.7.10 to get the TIFF to insert.

The sha1sum is correct, see: https://code-industry.net/free-pdf-editor/
They released 4.0.60 twice with different sha1sums. You need to delete the old archive from your local cache folder.

The sha1sum seems to be wrong/have changed.

Sorry, it was my fault.

Here is code-industry reply :

There should be no issues with this. Please, check if your files are protected from editing. Also make sure you have chosen Edit tool (Tools -> Edit Document).

It DOES work perfectly.

Works fine as-is for me. No idea what might be going on with Manjaro.

Thank you for maintaining this wonderful application in AUR.
BUT I'm unable to edit pdf files through it with the default installation using pacman front-end "pamac". Only commenting pdf seems to be allowed.
I used to be a ubuntu user and in this distro, full-editing for 'home use' was possible out-of-the-box.
Please tell how to uncripple this qt-5 version of masterpdfedit (for free I hope).
Registration at code-industry.net seems to be charged (no free home-using registration appears (at least today)).
Thank you very much (I run Manjaro on amd64, DE=Xfce).

Permissions are correct. Do you have a screwy umask set?

I get a permission error after installing this package:

$ ls -al /opt/
drwx------ 1 root root 142 Feb 11 17:21 master-pdf-editor-4

Maybe line 23 in the PKGBUILD " cp -a --no-preserve=ownership master-pdf-editor-${pkgver%%.*} "$pkgdir/opt/" "should be changed to preserve ownership?
