It's great for presentations. It makes even the most drab presentation more interesting, and gives you the ability to add animated elements to your presentation. Everybody uses Microsoft PowerPoint, but for Mac it's a little slow and unresponsive. Flip PDF Pro for Mac kind of solves that issue – you can build your project in InDesign, export it out, then import it into Flip PDF Pro. It sounds like a bit of a process but it's actually very easy. Any designer can pick it up and run with it.

Jotform PDF Editor has been a game-changer for a local festival which is a client of mine. I set them up with a Jotform for parade entries to pre-register, then use the PDF Editor to format each entry in an easy-to-read layout so the announcer can read the information as each entry passes during the parade. I set up another client that uses it to track new members. This scenario is a little trickier as the amount of information gathered can vary quite a bit, so it's a little harder to keep the layout of all the entries consistent

Pros
FlipBuilder
  • You can customize or add certain things like your title, logo, toolbar icon appearance, background, fonts, etc. It feels a lot like a design program – which is nice, as a designer.
  • The program allows you to embed almost any sort of media into your flip book – GIFs are easy to add in and work with, they add a dynamic element to your presentation (which wasn't possible before).
  • You can create these things called “hot spots” – basically certain trigger areas in your document that can activate something when clicked – like take you to a e-commerce site, for example.

Cons
FlipBuilder
  • My documents sometimes had a problem with import and output – sometimes it would take a substansial amount of time to export something.
  • In their mulit-lingual version, our freelance linguist caught some mistakes, some words were not translated or translated into other languages – which can make us look pretty bad.
  • There's a limit on audio you can output for each page in your document – it had to be "one audio for two pages".

  • Exports all fields, not just the ones that have been conditionally filled out.
  • Could use better page breaks.
  • Would love a clearer editing interface.

There are several PDF conversion programs out there, but really Flip PDF Pro for Mac is probably the best one that I've encountered. The amount of versatility in the program really sells it to me. It works just like a design program, but as a customizable PDF, and it's easy-to-use interface really helps speed things up with our workflow and process. There's a lot of competitors out there, but none of them really stack up.

Jotform PDF Editor has a feature that natively integrates with Jotform PDF Editor form data. I like the fact that I can easily automate and fill PDF and customise its design based on many multiple purposes of a PDF document.

  • It makes our presentations more interesting and dynamic.
  • It allows us to go around using Microsoft PowerPoint (which is a little slow and unresponsive on Mac).
  • Using its animation and hotlink elements, we're able to broaden our services with this program. It really helps out a lot.
