Flip PDF Pro for Mac

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.

If you frequently find yourself dropping in text boxes to complete a form, you need Power PDF. If you often merge documents of several types into one, you need Power PDF. If you often wish you had a way to edit a PDF you didn't create, you need Power PDF.

Pros

Flip PDF Pro for Mac

  • 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.

  • Power PDF integrates well with the Microsoft 365 (formerly Microsoft Office ) modules. This makes it very convenient to create .pdf documents directly from Microsoft Word and Excel and automatically open the resulting .pdf document in Kofax Power PDF for any required post processing.
  • Power PDF allows easy "drag-and-drop" assembly of a .pdf document composed of pages from various other .pdf documents. This capability is crucial to generating a single cohesive .pdf document from a variety of source applications.
  • Power PDF's cropping function allows for easily picking out excerpts from a .pdf document for use in other .pdf documents or other applications. The ability to save these files in JPEG format also provides good flexibility for importing to other applications.

Cons

Flip PDF Pro for Mac

  • 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".

Kofax Power PDF

  • I miss a Go To function. Yes, you can type a page number in the bottom bar, but that is tedious.
  • I miss a chance to better control the OCR function (exclude stuff that is in the way, such as headers, footers, line numbers, etc.
  • I'd like a more accurate FormTyper. It still leaves out too many fields of a scanned form.

I would very likely continue to update and use Power PDF because I am familiar with it, it has a reasonable price, and continues to provide value for the price. I work in a very dynamic field where I must continually adapt; It's beneficial to use a product that remains consistant in its user interface while improving its features.

Most tasks are intuitive, but the ones, I have cited already. To get a 10, the Help file should be rewritten. It is not thorough, confused, and sometimes inconsistent.Menus are well structured, although the Page Rotated section of the ribbon looks a bit out of place.Recent files are well located front and center.

Pages nearly always load at the expected rapid speed. Some documents that print quickly from Adobe Reader print much more slowly from Power PDF. I have never generated a report - that's a feature I didn't know existed until now and do not know what it's for

I didn’t contact support so I have no experience to date but I have looked through the help material. Others have said there are YouTube videos and I would certainly use them if I had a problem, but maybe I am a simple user, not an advanced professional. I do think writing help material is really difficult though, and Kofax seem to have considered lots of possibilities. And there’s no paperclip pop up.

I got an overview of the product from my predecessor who was about to retire from the job I now hold. He did not go into very many of the features and probably only knew about the ones he used most frequently.

We watched the training videos and tested out the features and functionality side by side. Some features are not used on a regular basis is it is convenient to go back and review training on that particular functionality when needed.

Alternatives Considered

Flip PDF Pro for Mac

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.

Adobe Acrobat works well but almost every feature costs extra and for this reason, I would avoid using some of the features I believed it would do. Kofax Power PDF has everything available from the get-go. There are also some things that I can do in Power PDF that I don't think Adobe Acrobat has the capability of doing or I never found how to do them easily.

Not really familiar since I'm the only person who uses it.But in the past it has been my understanding that Power PDF was offered only on a single-license basis, so it's been expensive for me to use it at home and at work because I had to pay for it on my own. In my current position management supports it so I at least only have to pay for it once.

Return on Investment

Flip PDF Pro for Mac

  • 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.

  • My business does not have hard numbers of the kind that you suggest. We deal with personnel files. Kofax has helped us more readily access those files and to keep creating them moving forward. Our goal is a paperless office and Kofax is the building block of that goal.
  • In terms of document creation, we are able to create pdf documents that become guidebooks and other training material for the pastors of the annual conference.
