Is there a Microsoft .xps file editor? By this I mean the the output generated for Print-to-File. Preferably free and open source. Paid software would be a second choice.

Hi Rob. What edits do you need to do? Have you tried Notepad? Or Notepad++? –  Steve Nov 10 '11 at 12:50

My own solution. Rather than use the XPS option to Print to File, instead I will use freeware CutePDF Virtual Printer. I can then select that as a printer and it will send the output to PDF. I can then use PDF X-Change Viewer to edit it. I am likely to accept my own answer when superuser allows in 2 days.

Update

Even better than CutePDF (possibly) is: PDFForge

http://www.pdfforge.org/

  • This is an open source virtual printer to PDF.

I concur -get xps out of your workflow entirely, it is not helping anyone :) –  Paul Nov 10 '11 at 13:13
    
+1 @Paul. PDF is more commonplace and there are more tools to convert it for editing, or for editing itself in situ. –  therobyouknow Nov 12 '11 at 11:23
