Pros: App with which I find it quite easy to work with documents in pdf format, I can create and fill out and export forms, in addition to other multiple tools for editing, it has the particularity that you can protect your forms and documents with a fingerprint or digital signature, which I use to avoid my work can be plagiarized. Convert Pdf to World very quickly.

Cons: I consider it does not present any significant inconvenience, but rather it has the advantage of highlighting in the forms the refillable fields

Tried a lot of different settings, but ended up using an online tool that worked better.

Pros: NONE, IT DID PERFORM AS ADVERTISED. All I wanted to do was to fill in PDF Forms. I've been cheated and there is no way to contact Support. I tried everything, then gave up and worked it manually to a Word Processor Document ... as I didn't have the time to mess with it and stay on schedule.

Cons: DOESN'T WORK. Had to Copy Paste to .Pages Document and laboriously take out the placement info and enter my INFO. Took me over an hour to fill out form. WHAT A RIP OFF.
Apple Pro Tower OS: High Sierra 10.13.4 COMPLETE WASTE of TIME.

Hi Robert, Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We apologize for the inconvenience that this has caused you. Which channel did you reach out to Support on? We would like to look into this communication issue to ensure that it doesn¿t happen in the future. In regards to the challenges you have found with filling out forms done on PDFelement, I am working from a Mac (Sierra 10.12.6) and haven¿t experienced the same issues while filling my PDF forms. I¿ll update my software and look for any incompatibilities. Let me know if you require any further assistance! Best, Rebecca

Pros: That is converts pdf to word easily. It works great when I need it the most and helps me fill the time with correct paperwork.

Cons: It is a little tough to figure out how to make the fill in the blank work. I had to work through each button to figure it out.

Overall: That I can convert my pdf files into word documents.

I still consider myself a novice with this software - better user manual would be very helpful.

Pros: Converting to Word, Excel is pretty seamless. Doesn't always save back to pdf exactly as it looks in Word or Excel.

Cons: Figuring out features and how to use them is not very easy. After opening a document the pages are blank until I select Print then the text shows on screen.

Pros: The speed of converting, plus the ability to edit page order. I like that there are three options to either Create, Combine, or Edit front and center, so I don't need to deal with a bunch of drop down menus.

Cons: It does need some pop ups to let you know what the icons mean. There are alot of icons that look like they do the same thing, even though they probably don't.

Overall: Besides the daily use of converting and editing PDFs, I put together presentations that merge many different PDFs with less time.

Pros: If you are the sole user of the program then it is really cheap. PDFelement has a lot of great features at much less price than adobe. It is also worth noting that it is extremely easy to use. It can allow you to make fillable PDF forms which I always use with my patients.

Cons: It can be a bit expensive (not as much as adobe though) if you want it to run on several computers. Also I have had some problems with PDF conversion mostly when there is a signature on the document.

Overall: It is a great tool for any professional to have, it's editing features are just great, I really recommend it.

Pros: The user interface of PDFelement is really nice and it makes working with it really easy. It is also faster than other readers which is great and makes it one of my go to program for reading.

Cons: It's file conversion to word usually gives me several errors, some of the characters could be converted into weird symbols, also the watermarks really mess the conversion.

Overall: It is a good PDF file reader and converter but it needs to improve the file conversion to DOC format.

PDFelement is both a file reader and an editor. It is simple and easy to understand

Pros: This an easy to use product. Editing of a document is a breeze. In fact, it is much easier than your major competition - Adobe. The cost is affordable.

Cons: My major complaint is the lack of support for a scanner's automatic document feeder (ADF). The inability to scan more than one page (without intervention) has steered me awat from using this in my business environment. Fix this an it becomes an option!

Pros: The software does a lot of very useful stuff. I love the OCR and Form creation features in particularly. I was also very happy with the price.

Cons: There are a few bugs, which generally happen when I am editing already existing text. The font will sometimes become illegible or the spacing will be impossible to correct. In those cases I have to go to Word and then adjust everything from there, which consumes a bit of time.

Overall: Saves me a lot of time with OCR and form building. Saves money when compared to competitors.

Pros: It's affordably priced and a much better value for the money than Adobe Acrobat. Converting a document to Word format is simple. Excel conversion needs improvement.

Cons: I don't like that it always defaults to color printing, Every time it updates to a new version, Windows 10 reverts to making Edge the default app for pdf documents. Converting a document to Excel is far more complicated than it needs to be. It's very difficult to convert to Excel and keep the columnar format. The interface for editing a document seems very unintuitive to me.

Pros: The interface is somewhat easy to navigate, though that's offset by the fact that the functions are subpar.

Cons: The range of fonts available is rather small, and the texts look pretty crooked after being edited. The same applies to the word documents converted from PDF - the texts and images go all weird.

This company is a bit of a scam - they offer a 30-day guarantee but never honors it. I submitted a refund request after one day, and they offered me an upgrade. I said I didn't want the upgrade; they insisted I tried it and that they would refund me if I wasn't happy with it. I submitted another refund request, and got the same response, "We can't give up trying to help you... How does the upgrade works for you?" When I reminded the CS person (who's apparently based in Mainland China) that she'd promised a refund last time round, she simply went quiet -- never bothered to reply to me again.

- Convert PDF documents.
- Edit the content.
- Merge multiple files of different formats into a single PDF.
- Removal of pages.
- Protect PDF with a password.
- Patterns and shapes.
- Electronic digital signature.
Plug - in OCR.
With PDFelement PRO 6 convert PDF documents to formats has become easy and manageable.

Cons: Would not be an objective review if you do not specify some of the shortcomings and mistakes. There are not many of them, but to mention them.
Some symbols after OCR are displayed incorrectly and have to be corrected manually. However, this is not critical.
There may be some errors in conversion with optical character recognition when converting tables. Sometimes there are some disadvantages of the style, where the fonts are replaced by non-similar signs. There are also conversion errors that contain more than one table.
The navigation bar (scroll) on the pages of a PDF document can be made a little wider for convenience.

Overall: PDFelement Pro is definitely a powerful program to work with PDF documents, has an intuitive interface and a beautiful modern design and, despite the large number of features, it looks very neat. If you're looking for a powerful pDF editor, this is what you need. PDFelement Pro is suitable for work, both for professionals and ordinary users, both for commercial organizations and for private users.

Very fast and easy PDF viewer/editor with some limitations. UI could be better with more options.

Pros: YT tutorials are implemented in HELP section, very fast loading and handling of files, combining several PDF files is very easy; adding lines, arrows or polygons is done perfectly, drawing clouds is gorgeous feature. Annotation panel works well. Converter is great.

Cons: Preferences have only few options to choose from, user interface is too clean (I prefer some text under large icon as there is enough space),

Overall: As there are so many PDF documents around these days, everyone need a good PDF viewer. I need also a good editor as many documents that I receive, for my job, have to be changed (or page format, or some annotations or something similar). Some time there are documents that need more serious approach with powerful PDF editor, as this one. It's fast, easy to understand and use, with some nice features.

Good!

Pros: Quick to open , love the word recognition you can make a file into word to fill out and then print. I love the many templates it offers for projects. It even features IRS forms, 2 thumbs up!

Cons: Pricing can get expensive if you require this software on multiple devices. It can be a bit complicated for beginners.

Pros: The Installation was painless and the UI was nice. The PDF's were easier to read on screen in comparison to other companies. I think the lay out is nice.

Cons: The Functionality is not their or at least need a better and easier explanation on how to use it. The additional cost for OCR is not ideal.

Overall: Not as much as I would like. I have used other products from Wondershare and I feel this product can be great if more time is put into it and have a better explanation on how to use it.

There is no additional cost for OCR in our upgraded program PDFelement 6 Professional (both Windows and Mac) at all, you only need to download the OCR separately without any further cost. We will keep improving the program, thanks for your feedback. For more details about how to use its features, please visit: https://pdf.wondershare.com/pdfelement/user-guide.html
