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.
Glad that I found this app
PDF element is such an amazing app and I'm so happy that I came across this. I was watching Kath Path and talked about this app, so I decided to check it out. This will be very useful for this school. I love all of these features and they are very easy, convient, and helpful to use. I'm so excited to use this application this school yeah to make my assignments look professional. I also never knew that I could edit PDF's until I got this app and it makes it so easy and very easy to make my own PDF's as well. I will for sure reccommend this to my friends and to many people.
Developer Response ,
Hi, thanks so much for your feedback. We are glad to hear that PDFelement meets your expectations.
Best PDF editor on Mac
I used Acrobat Pro for years but their full price upgrades and eventual subscription-only model finally drove me away. My main use case is review and markup of documents sent to me in PDF, plus some editing and OCR. I went through trial versions of all the others: PDFexpert, PDFpen, PDFprofessional, PDFreader, Foxit, and Skim, and PDFelement is by far the best. It's the most stable, really clean UI, has the features I need, also excellent compatibility between Mac and iPad/iPhone versions including iCloud support. Keep up the good work!
