Simple conversions from Acrobat PDF docs that have been created by Word, Excel, etc., probably do not need this program. But if you are ever faced with anything more than simple, straightforward conversions, this program is definitely worth it and will save hours of work. I have not found anything else that even comes close.

I honestly do not know of scenarios where it is not suited. For instance I use it to organize all my home receipts, manuals, documents, personal history documents, genealogy, recipes, craft instructions, etc. But also use it for complex business uses as well.

Cons

  • It's a little challenging to edit the row breaks.
  • Sometimes selecting all the pages in a document is cumbersome. "Select all" with custom conversion does not always choose all pages.

  • Better options to edit and rearrange the toolbar menus
  • Nothing else, it's really a great product!

Alternatives Considered

None, except for conversions in Acrobat.

I don't know of any other software that manages as much as PaperPort and have never looked as I have been using the software for over 20 years! I started using the Pro version likely about 10-15 years ago.

  • I save hours of work when dealing with client information. It takes only a few documents for me to recover the cost of this software in time saved.

  • The cost is truly minimal for the amount of daily use of the software
