Overall Satisfaction with Kofax Power PDF

Used to split or combine files or to clean up scanned files. Generally applied to materials used in courses.
  • Text recognition, and the associated page straightening.
  • Combine multiple files into one document.
  • Adjust page size.
  • Would like automatic alignment with text boundaries.
  • File size reduction process is hard to understand.
  • Needs too many processes always running.
  • Cost savings over Adobe Acrobat.
  • Saves me lots of time processing scanned documents.
I've generally found it easy to use and have stuck with it for many many years.
PDF Annotator: More convenient for marking up documents by pen.
Adobe Acrobat: Similar functionality but way too costly. Adobe products seem to be heavy-weight consumers of computer resources whether in use or not so I've stopped installing anything from Adobe.
The software seems to be kept functional and fast and I've never needed special assistance with any problem.

Merging multiple files into one document. Splitting a mail-merge document into multiple files. Text recognition on scanned files. Page size adjusting and trimming.
Appropriate where you want the functionality of Adobe Acrobat without the obscene cost and the proliferation of Adobe software interfering with your computer's function.
