Overall Satisfaction with PDFelement

I use PDFelement every day! I generate materials in various formats and use multiple unusual fonts. I find that if I send out a document in a different format, people will not see it properly, so sending pdfs is the only true alternative. I used to have an Adobe subscription just to generate and edit documents in pdf form, but that got very expensive. Then I looked for an alternative and decided to give PDFelement a try. I had tried other solutions and they fell short of what I needed to do. To my surprise, PDFelement did everything I needed to manage, edit and work in the pdf environment. The program had become my default pdf program on my Mac, but it is a bit heavy (which goes hand in hand with powerful). So to view a document I went back to Preview for this, but to do anything else I load it up on PDFelement for that to happen. I now use the program multiple times a day and love it.

  • Document editing.
  • Form generation.
  • Resizing a document for sending it as an email.
  • Conversion of the pdf to other formats.
  • Countless other tasks - this program is great.
  • I wish there was a lighter program for just reviewing a document and then to transition seamlessly to an editing mode. It takes a few seconds longer to load than Preview on my Mac, and based on that frustration, I use Preview to view documents.
  • A lower price for upgrades.
  • It has been very positive. I spent less than one month of my Adobe subscription to buy this software, and have saved over a thousand dollars so far using it.
I don't even remember the name of the products I tried, but none of them worked right. PDFelement does the job and does it well.
Never needed support, so without any needed this is great customer support!
To do anything with a pdf file, this program works great. You don't need to spend the same money month to month as you do with Adobe but can get all those features with one purchase.

Using PDFelement

It would be a 10 if I had a better way to review documents that I am not editing. I use Preview for this. However, every other usable factor is great.
