Best Server-side .NET PDF editing library


What's the best .NET PDF editing library available, and why?

It needs to be used on an IIS web-server. Specifically, I need to edit a PDF which was generated by reporting services.

Factors I'm interested in:

  1. Speed
  2. Memory Consumption
  3. Price
  4. Quality of documentation
  5. Library stability
  6. Size of library
  7. Whatever else you think is important

Have a look at iTextSharp. iTextSharp is a port of the iText , a free Java-Pdf library.

To quote iText:

You can use iText to:

  • Serve PDF to a browser
  • Generate dynamic documents from XML files or databases
  • Use PDF's many interactive features
  • Add bookmarks, page numbers, watermarks, etc.
  • Split, concatenate, and manipulate PDF pages
  • Automate filling out of PDF forms
  • Add digital signatures to a PDF file
  • And much more...

Syncfusion Essential PDF is the best. I have been using it for years. Also, Syncfusion provides a best support compared to other vendors.
