Flpsed è un WYSIWYG PostScript annotator.

Flpsed is a WYSIWYG PostScript annotator. You can't remove or modify existing elements of a document.

But flpsed lets you add arbitrary text lines to existing PostScript documents (PostScript is a registered trademark of Adobe Systems Incorporated). Added lines can later be reedited with flpsed.

Using pdftops, which is part of xpdf one can convert PDF documents to PostScript and also add text to them. flpsed is useful for filling in forms, adding notes etc. GsWidget is now part of flpsed.
flpsed is released under the GPL.

In pratica è un programma che permette di inserire delle righe di testo sui file PostScript (ps – pdf). Pur non consentendo la modifica degli oggetti e dei testi esistenti è molto utile per aggiungere delle note o degli appunti così come si farebbe su un documento in formato cartaceo.
Molto utile per la compilazione di moduli distribuiti in formato pdf.

Sito di riferimento:



  • Add arbitrary text to existing PostScript documents.
  • Reedit text, that has been added with flpsed.
  • The overall structure of the PostScript document is not modified. flpsed only adds the additional text.
  • Batch processing (no X11 required) to modify tagged text lines that have been entered interactively with flpsed before. This is very useful for repeatedly filling in forms.
  • Text lines can be imported from other flpsed-modified documents.
  • Import and export PDF. Therefore it can be used as a PDF editor as well.


  • Detect pdf by looking at magic number instead of file extension
  • Bring in utf8 changes from fltk2 based version to make it work with fltk-1.3. flpsed is now officially based on fltk-1.3.x
