Pros: - Completely Easy to Use
- Handy and always reliable. No lagging or any other complications
- User-friendly and easily installable.
- Easy to train a complete newbie about using the software. It basically takes maximum 1 hour to fully explain its functionalities.
- Easily set the password to the PDFs
- Microsoft Office integration.

Cons: The only cons I can find for this software is the pricing. I personally think it's a bit high, however, for some organizations/individuals who are having a massive amount of documents to deal with this might be really worth paying for.

Overall: My experience with novaPDF and usage of it started from the days when I was pretty much struggling with haveing the Word documents (and some TXT files) converted to the PDF file in an easy way. Coming from the amount of the work and the quantity I have to deal with daily, novaPDF is always a really huge helps once it comes to converting the documents and get them ready for sending as well as for the direct printing.
Currently, novaPDF is used throughout my whole group. It helps to save time and money and to avoid those so-called free converting online service, which are huts of spam, basically.
I'd highly suggest this product to anyone who is dealing daily with the massive amount of the documents and its conversions.

Recommendations to other buyers: You should definitely go for this software if you are dealing with documents that require to be converted in PDFs for official purposes. This will save you a lot of time.
