Overall Satisfaction with PDFelement

This is a personal product. I needed to convert ".pdf" files to other formats. I have used other programs and this was the best for the price. Online ideas were available but limited at the time. I often don't need online or have internet available.
  • This program does a good job of converting basic MS Word or Excel files.
  • Newer versions are better at keeping the format.
  • If there are many different fonts or equations in the conversion there it converts many to strings of numbers etc.
  • Adobe Online does a much better job of absolute conversion. It takes a lot of time to take these format issues out.
  • As a personal program, It has come in handy in so many ways. I can extract pages and convert them to take out text.
  • I think the price is a bit high to upgrade so I have reneged on the cost of upgrading. The internet idea is great, but if I use an online program the cost versus Adobe is minimal. At this point, I do not want to be dependent on the internet to do conversions.
Adobe is a perfect conversion, but I had a one-year subscription and the cost but the renewal was only for the online version. This was the best trial version for a downloaded product, not dependent on access to the internet.
For an offline program, this is one of the best.
