Solves my modern PDF verson ancient but lasts forever HP 1320 printer problem

I love my HP 1320 printer because it is incredably durable. 500,000 pages amd still working as good as new. Except when certain PDFs are printed, and the printer criver demands that the printer do something that it can't do, such as "set color space". then the printer stalls. This program can deal with this and several other problems; if necessary, this program will print incompatable pages (necessarily slowly (such as those with certain graphs and images) as bit maps. My problems are solved. I haven't tested its PDF editing abilities because I don't need that capability. Yes, this program is smart enough to print non-offending pages as fast as Preview, and automatically does what is necessary to enable my oldie but goodie HP 1320 to print all the previous no-nos. I wish that I could buy a permanant license (as I did for Adobe Photosho CS6) rather than subscribe, because I will NOT subscribe to software. Just call me an old fogey... Hey, I learned to program an IGM 650 in assembly language in 1958 at the tender age of 14, and was writing AI software in LISP in 1960 on a vacuum tube IBM 709 in 1960. Yep, I'm an old fogey.

Great PDF Editor

I really like PDFelement because of it's features conveniently being located on the left side of the application and how it doesn't require me to search painstakingly through the app or interact to find how to markup, add text, add links, redact, and many other features, such as convert the PDF, combine PDF, crop pages, add background/watermark, etc. On the right side of the application, there are options also buttons allowing me to organize pages, thumbnail, bookmark, search, and change the size of the PDF. These features make it very easy to annotate lengthy readings given throughout college.

A Cute and useful tool.

I find this app very useful when wanting to edit a document in a PDF format. I can edit the text, use nifty tools, and mark up the document with little side notes. Although some downsides make the app a bit confusing a first, they are pretty trivial. For example, the ORC text recognition tool took about 2-3 minutes to load/read the document (which is most likely due to the amount of text the tool has to recognize). Another trivial problem was that when I was inserting text into the document, I noticed I wasn’t able to click the font type, located at the very top of the page until I clicked the T+ icon. It took me like 5 clicks on the font toolbar to recognize this solution. Also, a popup appeared every time I used an application on the left side-bar that promoted becoming a premium member. I found this a tad annoying. Other than the things I stated, I loved the app; it came in handy.
