I am a new business owner. I have to say, this is one of the best PDF editing applications that I've used. It's very intuitive and offers all the features I need - being able to edit pdfs, sign them, merge them and convert them to various formats. It also lets me convert pdf files to word, excel, powerpoint and png files. The best part is that the app is able to merge pdfs together. I really love the PDFelement because I can edit pdfs and convert them to my word processor seamlessly. This app is a life-saver. If you ever need to edit, annotate, sign, convert pdf to word, excel, powerpoint or other formats - this is the go-to app. It's a neat little program that will work wonders for your business needs. All the features are so easy to use and it saves me so much time that I would have spent on things like converting docs to pdf and editing them. And of course it will merge PDF files as well as fill out PDF forms. I have been using PDFelement for years now and I love it. It's so easy to use and the conversion process is seamless. I was a little hesitant in the beginning, but now I think it has been worth every penny. I recommend it is enough!

easy to use

I have been using PDFelement for a while now and I can't even imagine not having it. It has everything that I need to keep my business running smoothly. From converting PDFs to word documents or PowerPoint slides to signing, annotating, merging and filling out forms - this app does it all. I had used a lot of other editing apps, but none of them were as simple and straightforward as PDFelement. I was so sick and tired of having to buy expensive Adobe Acrobat to be able to properly edit my files. I had a lot of PDF documents from old presentations and needed to edit them. It has all of the features that I need to make editing my pdfs easy and quick. The user interface is easy to use and has a friendly UI which makes it really simple to edit the documents. It's always getting updates to make it better and easier to use. I am so glad that I found it because now I have a reliable way of editing my pdf files with ease. I love the format of the file when it is done editing. Perfect for anyone who is searching for the best PDF Editor.

One minor issue

Love the app. One minor issue, but important for me: I’m having issues with adding an image to the pdf. I’m wanting to add a .png file with a blank background to the pdf, but whenever I insert it, a white background is automatically added and the white background cannot be edited out, despite it not being present in the original .png file. The same issue of the white background being there is present when importing a stamp as well.

Another workaround to this, for me at least, may be to insert a signature, but I’m unable to upload a signature; the only option to add a signature is to draw it on my phone.

Any help would be appreciated. Great app overall though!!
