Pros: What I like the most about this software is how easy it is to convert the PDFs to other formats such as doc and xls, it is such a helpful software that has so many of adobe features and is so much cheaper.

Cons: It has the same issue as other pdf converters: if the pdf has been signed or have a watermark it messes up the conversion in the word document, I would love if you could select an area to skip.

Overall: I really love how easy it is to transform documents, I would love for them to fix the watermark/sign problem though.

Pros: Being able to transform documents to and from PDF makes my work easier since lots of the documents our clients send us need to be edited and we can't do it in the pdfs, just going to the doc version is wonderful.

Cons: The only complaint I have about this software is that it can be slow at times and it can feel a bit clunky.

Overall: It is an excellent software for transforming PDF documents and it makes my work easier.

Has been a great tool for forms and converting to word documents.

Pros: the IE addins has been helpful in reducing printing out screen shot or printing from a website and it's hooked in with our DMS so it's very easy to save documents so no printing needed. Saving lots of paper.

Cons: A few times the print to PDF option has stop working so a new install has fix this issue. The archiving email to PDF is sometimes slow or will crash if it's over a thousand emails at once.

Pros: It is an excellent program that helps me to convert different documents of work, power point, Excel in a single pdf document, and pdf documents to what I can edit and convert into work.

Cons: The best thing of all is that I can edit all those documents that I made, the only one is that it is compatible only with Windows 10

Pros: Nuance Power PDF is such an excellent pdf editor. It allows us to work on a document without the need of the source document, and if that weren't enough it allows the conversion of pdf documents into docs and xls which can be life saving in several situations.

Cons: If a document has a signature or a watermark it messes up the document conversion, it would be great if it could just convert the typed information.

Overall: Excellent document conversion system and PDF editor, I highly recommend it.

Pros: I was able to purchase it outright without having to subscribe and it has all of the features I am used to in a PDF creator.

Cons: Having to resize the viewing panel to view pages in a single list, but this is really no big deal in light of the advantages of having switched to this product.

We love this product! Much less expensive than Adobe with most of the same options.

Pros: The ability to create fillable PDFs from Word and Excel documents, typing onto PDF forms, and the ability to export a PDF back into an editable format such as Word.

Cons: Creating fillable forms is time-consuming, as you have to go field by field to set it up. Otherwise, we have not yet run into anything we didn't like or didn't work as expected.

Overall: It is a great time-saver when needing to update company forms.

Pros: Power PDF Advanced is useful software that i now use for all my PC-based PDF needs. With it I can easily view PDFs and edit them as well. I comes with a good range of features, and I think you'll be surprised by the wide range of things that it can do.

Cons: Unfortunately, there is something in the design language of this software that just leaves me feeling confused. Even though I can usually do all the things I need to do in this product, it can sometimes take a while to work out how.

Overall: Being able to view and edit PDF documents; this is something that it has taken me a while to find a good software alternative to Adobe. The product isn't perfect but it is very functional.

Pros: This helps me a great deal in my role as document controller. I handle and submit sensitive and confidential documents along with contractual documents which come to me in many editable formats - being able to convert to and from pdf has made a job a lot easier

Cons: I occasionally get error messages saying there was a problem and the document has not been converted when in fact it has. Also, if a document is signed in pdf and it is converted to word it puts strange characters on the document - it would be nice if the signatures were either omitted or if they could be converted to a small picture or text box that would be great

Overall: Convenient document conversion

Cons: The PDF "Printer" seems to change the scale of prints when used for engineering drawings resulting in reprints not being accurate.

Overall: This software gave me a affordable alternative to some of the bigger brands with all the same features.

Pros: Editable PDF, combine documents into one PDF, add notes, create new PDFs for advertising etc. For us, it is a complete PDF Suite.

Cons: Converting PDF to word - need to be able to exclude the graphics so it does not distort the layout. Would also like a few more font options.

Pros: This product has nearly all the same features as higher priced competitors but at a more reasonable cost. Even users without much experience will be able to figure out most functions as a lot of the basic daily functions are one-click.

Cons: On rare occasion we run into issues with some advanced documents made in Adobe not working, or working but not correctly. There is no helping this, but it could be a con if your converting from heavy Adobe brand to another PDF product. Currently no mobile app version may be a con for some as well.

Overall: Lower cost replacement for nearly anything that Adobe PDF can/will do.
Users pickup using it pretty quickly, which is good for me.

Pros: The feel and logic in this software is very easy to use. Nuance Power PDF also does not have that same propriety feel and hassle that I find with Adobe.This software is very user friendly and has all the features that I require located in spots that make sense from a user's perspective (with the exception of some of the editing functions). I really like this software in managing my PDF documents.

Cons: The conversion to word from a PDF is not as good as the previous software that I used (Omnidox platform). My only other criticism has to do with the manipulation of PDF documents. It took me a while to figure out how to do it and involved what I perceived as an extra step to really go from a viewer to an editor type format of the PDF. Once I figured out the steps, it worked well.

Overall: A strong and reliable PDF viewer and editor.

I have had a great experience using Nuance Power PDF.

Pros: Nuance Power PDF is much easier to use than any other pdf program that I have used. The fact that you can make a pdf editable, as well as track changes, with such ease has sold me on this program. It is my "go-to" for all pdf's.

Pros: The price and features for this software is what attracted me to it in the first place, and yet my users have told me they really like having it available for pdf editing.

Cons: A bit of a learning curve. I have found it helpful to have a power user in the office that helps people get started with the software. Another con; they don't give free version upgrades, guess that was why it costs less!

Overall: Bringing more people the ability to edit pdf's at a reasonable price. I decided to have a team use this software for editing so they all could share techniques and tips.

Comments: Recently switched to this PDF software instead of using the previous software. Was suspicious at first because I have never used anything but for PDF. Have to say, I strongly prefer Power PDF. It is much easier to edit PDFs in this software and much easier to convert back and forth between Word, Excel, and other formats. Highly recommend!

Cons: I would like to be a re-seller, to offer this to my end-users

Overall: I always used the common and publish PDF tool, Adobe, but I found their product slow and very expensive. Nuance PDF Pro change my "work life" the ease of use and the ability to convert and build documents, not just PDF, was a turning point. I have been in IT for 22 years and started using this product for 3 years ago - i wont change and highly recommend this product. Well Done Nuance !!

Pros: The interface. The layout. The color scheme. Speed of the app. PDF reduction tool.

Cons: I have not experienced any cons with this software yet.

Overall: Nuance has always made good products but this one really exceeded my expectations. The layout is very simple and easy to use. The tools are very advanced - especially the abilities of it to reduce PDF sizes. I have always had trouble reducing PDFs to an acceptable size to send out - and Nuance Power PDF is the best at getting the job done.

Recommendations to other buyers: Get it.
