Wish It Worked Better

Obtained software hoping to have an alternative to Acrobat. Attempted to edit a few .pdf files and found the software to be slow and not consistent in action. Attempted to use help function but every time I attempted I received the "server dropped connection. Attempts were made over several days with different browsers and the result in each case was the same. The programs works, hence the 3 stars, but it isn't an alternative to Acrobat, in any version, at this time.

A perhaps unsurprising failure

If an application can find a way of screwing something up, this one does it in spades. Any attempt to convert from PDF to any other format leaves you with a competely incomprehensible mess that can only be fixed by deleting the original and any saved copies and starting from scratch. This is the type of product I expect from a windows box, not an OS X application that attempts to make you pay. I might consider buying it if I had any inkling, even the slightest hope that it would actually allow me to edit and save a PDF. Unfortunately, it fails at all levels.

A complete waste of time, disk space, and effort. The amount of time spent is part of my life that I will never get back. Try at your own risk, and don’t blame me if they screw up your documents as badly as they screwed up mine.

I suggest the authors, programmers, and support staff all take up competitive needlepoint, because as a software developer, they fail miserably on all counts.

Developer Response ,

Dear customer, we feel sorry about your experience with this program but this is the first complaint we received until now that conversions are totally mess. Could you please kindly provide us you PDF file to email address Our developing team will test it and figure out why it happened. Thank you very much.

Finally I can work with PDF files

I have always enjoyed the value of Adobe's PDF format but frustrated by the limited things one can do with the files. The Macintosh PREVIEW appliction has limited flexibility with PDF files and Acrobat, unless you pay a lot for the premium version, is basically read and sometimes form fill only.

This app allows very good exports to the common MS Office formats and is fast and intuitive. The only problem I have with it is that it seems to have a non-Mac like interface which is frustrating. I have other applications from this developer and they are my go-to apps for media reformatting and editing, and their UI is much nicer than this one. But it is quite useable and flexible.
