Offline PDF editor for merging



  • Phil Reilly

    ...Kami says:

    • Offline support

    so you would know better than me if it has offline limitations & what they are exactly.
  • Phil Reilly

    Kami has 2 apps but this ONE says it works OFFLINE.

    Added LibreOffice with FlatPack. Merged two PDF's successfully with this.

    Hello Phil, thank you for these pieces of advice.

    Actually, Kami - unless I am mistaken - does not work offline for "Split & Merge" functions, but only for editing of one single PDF at a time.

    Relevant to LibreOffice with Flatpak, should I follow what is explained here to install it (sorry, I am a beginner with Cloudready/Chromium OS, I have always used Windows...)?


  • Felipe Vargas

    If you're interesting working when you do not have an Internet connection, you can use Google Docs for this, without Flatpak or Android applications (if you want).

    To work with Google Drvie/Docs/Sheets/Slides when you do not have an Internet connection you need to install a plugin for 'CloudReady' from the Google Chrome Web Store, the plugin called 'Google Docs Offline' is written and maintained by Google itself.

    You also need to set up Google Drive to save a copy of your office documents (Docs, Sheets, and Slides) on your computer (the Google Docs Offline extension keeps them in sync).

    You will find step-by-step instructions on Google's support site at this link:

    Link refers to 'ChromeBook' but the information is also relevant for Chromium OS and therefore for CloudReady.

    Good luck.

    Yes Nigel, I had to restart once during the install of LibreOffice but it did install & run OK. You can Google how to manipulate PDF files with LO. My daughter tested & confirmed its operation.

    Thank you Felipe and Phil. I think Google Docs Offline only allows you to open and edit doc/docx, xls/xls and ppt/pptx files, but not pdf. And, I have to say, compatibility with the original files is not outstanding, just ok.

    As to LibreOffice installation, I will give it a try tomorrow and let you know.

    Thanks again!
