Better Than Adobe Acrobat (99% of the time)

Pros: The interface is so easy to use - much easier than Acrobat! The menus are more easily customized, and functionality seems much easier to find. The "Add Text" feature is my favorite. It's so much easier to pinpoint exactly where I want to insert the text and then to adjust it to where I want it to be. And it is also easier to adjust the size, typeface, etc. It's so intuitive, and I like the interface better than any of its competitors. Best of all, it was so much more reasonably priced! In my office, three of us have the Tools package and one of us has the PRO package. We use it daily. I use it to prepare annotated reports for clients and redline drawings when we close out construction projects. It's so nice to have easily-manipulated tools! We've also just begun using the batch tools. I am a huge fan of this software!

Cons: The only thing I don't like about this software is that it does not have the ability to automatically detect fields when creating forms. The Tracker Software team has promised in the forums that it's on their list of things to implement, but has not given a definite date for this to happen. When it does, this software is going to be PERFECT.

Overall: It was a replacement for Adobe Acrobat 9 that I previously used. I didn't want to go to the subscription-based software, and I actually ended up LOVING this software much better than I ever did with Acrobat. And that's saying a lot - I was a very brand-loyal Adobe user!

Pros: Excellent commenting and bookmarking tools, drawing and measuring. Great featured editing the document, plus security (even simple Redaction can protect the private information). I also can work with XFA Forms, and then convert my PDFs to Excel, PowerPoint etc.. or share through Dropbox, Google Drive, SharePoint, email... I can work with many types of documents, not only with .pdf, and can work with Portfolio , I need it often. New Ribbon UI makes my work more comfortable, clear. Great software, heartly recommend

Cons: I would like to have version also for Apple products. I can work with portfolio but cannot create a portfolio. Maybe I would like to have more tutorial videos.

Pros: From basic PDF viewing to full document tear down and reconstruction, XChange has all the tools to make a fully PDF workflow a reality, without the brand name price tag. I use it to view, print, annotate, modify, merge and manage all my PDF documents daily.

Cons: The only warning comes early on - if you're using the free version, and you apply a Pro filter without thinking about it, it permanently stamps your document with a watermark. Before you select a menu option marked "Pro", buy the software.

Overall: All my digital documents go through a fully PDF workflow now, and XChange allows me to make necessary corrections at any point.

Hi!
About the problem "Navigating the tools is not very intuitive" - because they are very detailed. Actually, that tools are similar to Adobe, Word etc. We tried to make them intuitive as possible. Once you understand how to customize them, things will be way easier.
Also, you're always welcome to ask the support team (support@tracker-software.com), if description in the online Help is not clear. You can send any question you need answer, not only with an issue. Please feel free to contact us.

Pros: One of the first softwares to provide a set of features, already in the Freeware version, very respectable.

Cons: Use is not always intuitive. Once it was an obligatory choice for those who wanted a lightweight product to read and comment PDFs, now Acrobat has also added the same features.

Overall: It is a very good product to work with

Pros: PDF-Xchange is a really good option for a PDF reader and editor, it works as good as adobe and is much cheaper. The fact that you can merge documents, read them and also modify them makes it a really complete software.

Cons: Be warned that if you don't buy the project and you edit using the free version you are going to get a watermark.

Overall: I highly recommend this software, is a cheaper version of Adobe that works like a charm.

Pros: I love PDF Xchange, it has so many great features. Adding text to a PDF has never been made in such a good way, it is so easy to enter it and locate it exactly where you want it to be placed. I use it frequently for merging files since it allows me to summarize or compress several files into just one.

Cons: I would love if PDF Xchange could do PDF to word conversions, since they are always needed, mostly when one loses the source document which we created the PDF with.

Overall: I totally recommend this software, it is such a great PDF reader and editor for everyone on a tight budget.

Pros: we use acrobat and PDF-Xchange the same in our office and I can't rave enough about this program. its just as capable, cheaper, and it works. sometimes its even better than Acrobat because it doesn't glitch when you try to mark up a second instance of the program.

Cons: stamp feature is weaker, learning curve from Acrobat,

Overall: if you have documents from acrobat, sometimes markups don't always show up (depends how you save it). we've had issues going back and forth from this to acrobat but we have both so its easy to resolve.

Pros: PDF-Xchange is a really solid pdf editing software, it is extremely easy to enter texts in it and place them just where you want, something that is almost always a problem with other editors where the grid messes up the position.

Cons: PDF-Xchange is not that intuitive so you wont be getting most of it straight out of the box, you have to spend some time practicing with it. Also on a virtual machine it can crash a lot which is a big problem for me.

Overall: Pretty solid pdf editing software at a really affordable prize, I truly recommend it, it is extremely easy and shouldn't represent a big challenge to learn.

Pros: One of the big issues of pdf xchange for some people is the fact that if you are editing documents with the free version it will put a watermark on it, however I have used it to watermark on purpose my designs before the client pays for them, it has become my watermarking software.

Cons: This is one of the adobe replacement options that has the most bugs, it will lag a lot, make your pc go really slow and if you are unlucky enough (as I was) it will even crash and make you lose all of the progress you had on your document, so keep constantly saving if you want to edit with this software.

Overall: I don't recommend PDF-Xchange as your replacement for adobe, it is way cheaper than other options but it has a lot of stabiltiy issues so you might want to look for other softwares, unless you are planning on using the free version as I do for watermarking.

Pros: It is cheaper than other options in the market and has a lot of great features (such as merging files, editing, signing or encrypt them) that they offer at a greater cost. Also printing large documents with it is much easier than with other readers.

Cons: Something I don't like is that if you are using the free version it will not tell you that after you are finished you are going to get a watermark, so the first time I expent a lot of time on a file and it was ruined.

Overall: I recommend this software to everyone who need a great PDF software and don't want to pay lots of money to buy Adobe.

Pros: PDF-Xchange is really cheaper than other options available, it works really great for electronic signing and encrypting my documents, also if you make use of the fact that the free version watermarks your documents it also works as a watermarking software.

Cons: Be careful when using the free version of this software, because if you use it as a pdf editor and you don't purchase the full software it will stamp a big watermark on your document and before I knew about this issue I ruined some documents.

Overall: PDF xchange is really cheap, incredibly easy to use and has several useful tools for protecting your pdfs, as I mentioned just be careful with watermarks if you use the free version.
