FineReader is critical for any business that handles scanned documents or works with files that need conversion to Excel, PDF, Powerpoint or various other programs. It's ability to automatically process, read documents and suggest tables is impressive. It can take printed documents and convert all of the text to a editable format which is a huge time saver.

This editor is not made for reference designing pdfs, but for simple editing, it is more than efficient. Many PDF editors require a subscription for something as basic as typing a name or date. PDFEscape is perfect for this and can be done online without any software download.
