Pros

I love the ease with which I can take apart PDFs, redesign, and put them back together. It is intuitive to use, and I've enjoyed playing with the features.
It helps me create fillable surveys for clients and students that makes it easy for everyone. I am pleased with the software.
PDFElement is my favorite PDF reader and I recommend it for all types of users, from the most basic to the most advanced.

Pros

I use it every day in my work and it is wonderful. You can put stamps, signatures, change the color of the highlighter among other super cool things.
But what I like the most is that I can highlight on the file, so I don't have to print the document but still be able to note what I want to. And I do love the electronic signature as well.
Foxit is still supports windows 07 which is beneficial to older version users. Highlighting and commenting is easy and I like it very much the way they offer to highlight.

Cons

I opened and tried to work with ONE document and the program infected every other PDF on my computer, rendering all useless as they would not open in ADOBE or WORD once I had deleted the program.
Stability problems dealing with larger pdfs, started getting worse when version 7 launched and the developer decided they needed more revenue. We will probably not be buying the upgrade.
Having to purchase 2 separate licenses is costly and one license should permit at least 2 systems or 2 systems of differing platforms. Customer support/communications: non-existinet.

Cons

I have had trouble trying to open PDFs with Foxit Reader after I use the Foxit Reader printer to create the PDF. I have not been able to find the problem causing this.
There is a lack of counting the number of pages, at least in the mobile version, difficulties to synchronize with the cloud sporadically.
While I was using windows 7, after some heavy use, sometimes it crashes. It's a bit annoying for me sometimes I get some ads when I am working.

Perfect! It's quite simply the best pdf reader I have ever used.

Pros

I love PDFelement, I use it on both Mac and Windows, it has a very nice design and is easy to use, its functions are interesting, you can even add our signature to a document!

Cons

The only thing I can talk about here is that I would like to have an "eraser" tool, so that we can remove any highlights that we have made with the program.

Good product for what you pay for

Reviewed 5 years ago

Overall, I am happy with PDFelement 6 and will continue to use it as it offers a great product at a great price in the vast sea of free and expense apps out there.

Pros

It offers the same features as other big name providers that I need to use without the large price tag. It has allowed me to transfer the license to new devices. The support has been reliable but I have not needed it too much. The interface is familiar and easy to navigate. I am always discovering need, better ways to complete tasks.

Cons

When I update the software it resets the default pdf reader to MS Edge, which is frustrating.

PDFelement is a good software but I prefer Adobe Acrobat

Pros

PDFelement is a good PDF editor and reader, with many helpful features that anyone can use easily.

Cons

This software is not as good as Adobe, the quality of the OCR results is not high enough and you must have a good scanned document to use the OCR, and converting to word or excel doesn't give high results.

Fast PDF reader and editor.

Reviewed 6 years ago

It is a good PDF file reader and converter but it needs to improve the file conversion to DOC format.

Pros

The user interface of PDFelement is really nice and it makes working with it really easy. It is also faster than other readers which is great and makes it one of my go to program for reading.

Cons

It's file conversion to word usually gives me several errors, some of the characters could be converted into weird symbols, also the watermarks really mess the conversion.

One time license purchase can be pricey if deploying across a large number of machines. Have to pay to keep paying to upgrade to current version. Purchase of PRO version SHOULD give you free version updates in perpetuity. Incentive to buy the better package.

Great OCR for scanned documents

Reviewed 6 years ago

PDF OCR is really amazing for this software, even your scanned documents can be converted without any major issues, I would love if the pdf association could not get lost when it is constantly updated.

Pros

PDF element works really great as a conversion software, it's OCR has been great fot transforming even scanned documents without any type of issues (something that is extremely rare), it is really fast for a pdf reader and it's pdf splitting and mixing are really good.

Cons

Something that is really annoying is the fact that every time this software is updated (something that happens a lot) the open file with this software gets lost, so you have to keep asociating your pdf files to this software.

It's much cheaper than a full Adobe license and every bit as easy to use.

Pros

Ease of use & so similar to the "big box" one that users can make the switch easily. Installs easily too.

Cons

When I do an default install it automatically, without asking or prompting, sets this to be the default reader for PDF files. I would prefer to at least be asked first.

PDFElement - Simply the best PDF reader

Reviewed 3 years ago

In my day-to-day life, PDFElement is a unique tool. Manipulating PDF documents with it is very simple. Creating a PDF document, editing, protecting and emailing it is so simple and functional that it doesn't even seem like the program is free. Its modern and attractive look, combined with the many excellent functions it has, make PDFElement the best PDF reader on the market.

Pros

The PDFElement program is a robust, lightweight, functional and very complete PDF bed. It has excellent tools for viewing, manipulating and editing PDF files. With a very modern and intuitive interface, it is very simple to open a document, edit it and share it. The program has so many tools that it makes it a "premium" software for free. We can annotate PDF documents such as erasing text in documents,...

Cons

I don't see any negative aspects in the program, as it has so many tools that it is very difficult to evaluate it negatively. Perhaps the only point I would suggest would be to make the program available for Linux, due to the vast number of users of the operating system. In general, the software is so good that I can barely evaluate with any negative point.

Pros

Easily edit text and tables in pdf documents OCR function is really amazing. I did try it for an old book I had and I could easily edit the scanned pdf fast and easy. Easily convert my pdf documents to ppt or word or even jpg files I can merge and combine documents easily I can easily make clean and clear annotations using pdfelement Most importantly I can easily encrypt and protect my files and the batch encrypt features makes it easier to achieve this if you have a lot of d The interface is simple and intuitive.

Minor crashing problems but awesome converter

Reviewed 6 years ago

This is a really cheap software, it is amazing for file conversion and if you don't mind the fact that it have some crashing problems then this is a solid alternative to adobe.

Pros

PDFelement is one of the best conversion softwares I have ever used, with pdf converted documents it's transformations to word and excel have never been problematic for me, they are always top notch, also the fact that it works with optical character recognition allows me to even convert scanned documents. It is also a really solid pdf reader as well.

Cons

In spite of the fact that this software is really good for conversion it has major stability problems, if you are converting a large file you will probably need to do several tries since it will probably keep crashing on you.

This software is an extremely good pdf editor, it does everything you might need when working with pdfs, it can be quite slow and its excel conversion is not as sharp as I would like but is pretty solid overall.

Pros

PDFelement is a solid option for a PDF reader and editor, it comes with a large array of tools that are extremely helpful, you can edit pdfs, split and merge, encrypt, electronically sign them and my favorite feature protect them with a password.

Cons

PDFelement can be really buggy and it lags a lot. It is slower than other pdf editors. Plus it's excel conversion can mess up the columns, something that I haven't experienced with other converters.

PDFelement pour modifier simplement des PDF existant ou créer vos propres PDF

Lorsqu'on vous envoi un fichier PDF à renvoyé rempli tel un formulaire il est pénible de s'apercevoir que le PDF n'est pas interactif, la solution est d'imprimer, de remplir au stylo et de scanner la feuille remplit pour renvoyer le PDF via email, mais le fichier devient vite très lourd.... Avec PDF element c'est simple, vous éditez le PDF directement sans l'imprimer et remplissez les cases et il vous génère un autre PDF tout aussi léger que le formulaire original
