A huge waste of time

Reviewed 9 months ago

Woeful. I spent hours creating a 60-page, downloadable, fillable PDF with URL links throughout the text, only to find that when downloaded, the URL links do not work. I have used two other PDF editors that did not have this problem. To add insult to injury, it appears the only way to maintain working links is to permanently host the document in pdfFiller. Doing this would force users to provide personal info in order to access it, AND requires an ongoing subscription to maintain.This is unacceptable for me and for my client and not fit for purpose.As a contractor, this exercise has cost me over $500 in lost income. I now need to start again with different software.

Pros

It was reasonably easy to use; the interface is simple.

Cons

It is not possible to create a downloadable, fillable PDF that contains working URL links in the text. The only option is to keep the document 'hosted' in pdfFiller. Doing so forces users to provide personal details in order to access the document. This is completely unacceptable and in my opinion almost a scam.

Vendor response

Kirsty hi! Many thanks for providing your feedback and describing such an interesting use case, even though the experience was frustrating for you. We apologies for that. For starters, your client(s) won't need to have subscriptions of their own to fill in the form. They can do that in any Internet browser they already have. The form would remain confidential and not accessible to third parties, we assure you. Regarding all other technicalities, we strongly recommend you email our Support (support@pdffiller.com). We can surely make it work, just need to make several readjustments.

PDF Filler

Reviewed 2 years ago

We really like it - I've not had any issues with usability, nor have any of my employees. I've helped some of our customers use the program to customize some of our forms for their own use with their information on it (sample requests from different sales reps, for example). It's proven to be very helpful - very affordable and a perfect alternative to a more robust Adobe-like program.

Pros

I loved that it is VERY comparable to Adobe in the features it offers. It was user-friendly and easy to share PDFs across a handful of different departments at my company - not one person had issue with filling out OR signing the PDF they were required to use.

Cons

I have yet to have a negative experience while using PDFFiller. Maybe, the only thing I can think of, is IF you are an Acrobat Adobe person, understanding this program is for the basic needs of filling in PDFs - it's not all the bells and whistles that Adobe offers, but it's also the perfect program for what it is, a PDF FILLER!

Manage, edit, sign and notarized pdf forms easily

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

I can easily create, manage and edit my pdf documents with Pdffiller. It is a cloud storage where you can quickly login through facebook or google account. Open your pdf and edit it easily. You can convert your document to the available templates fit for your form and objectiives. I like it because i can open my documents in a web browser or through its desktop application. You can easily create a form where the recipient can put his or her signature by using its send to sign tool. You can share your document. You can email it. Whats best is that you can have your form notarized.

Cons

Pdffiller has different plans and price is affordable depending on the number of users. However chat support or customer support’s turn around time to resolve issue also depends on your plan. If it is just basic, expect support to attend to you within 24 hours. If you have the premium, then it will be instant support.

Convenient, Affordable, Online PDF Editing & Mgmt Tool

Reviewed 5 years ago

I use PDFfiller on a regular basis. The enhanced security options, including the ability to email a PDF to someone and that automatically includes a ‘security code’ for retrieval of the document gives me a sense of security since the actual document is not attached to the email, which could be intercepted if someone hacked into your mail server. I also use the merging tools, allowing me to combine multiple PDF’s into one file, move pages, etc. It helps me to better organize my PDF libraries. Considering the other options of using a very high-priced service/product (Acrobat), PDFfiller is, in my opinion, a much better tool.

Pros

I’ve been using ‘PDFfiller’, for the last 2 years. The editing tools available are great, including filling out forms, editing text, adding comments and signatures, makes it a very convenient to import and work with documents on-the-go. The ability to import/export to/from cloud-based sources as well as drag & drop. Import options makes things much easier in-terns of document management

Cons

Honestly, there haven’t been any tasks that I typically need to with PDF editing, etc. that PDFfiller already provide.

Fill in the Blanks!

Reviewed 5 years ago

As per the 'Pro's' above, when edited could be then be immediately sent by mail to my counter-party sitting across a meeting room table. Crucially important for editing legal documents...........

Pros

Every had a pdf file or document that you can't collect text sections,OR fill in a form, or add notations or extend a document. I did, and often, and I wanted it to look professional as possible, be online, so access from off office meetings was available, and documents changeable in an instant. One that when edited could be then be immediately sent by mail to my counter-party sitting across a meeting room table. Crucially important for editing legal documents. Then I found PDFfiller, it does that and more and I would highly recommend it, a reasonable cost for an excellent product that continues to update and improve its offering. Keep up the good work!

Cons

A little bit cumbersome in remembering how to download a finished document, could be just me, but clearer tags or instructions might help

PDFfiller

Reviewed 3 years ago

It started out fairly good, but the card issue was the last straw.

Pros

PDFfiller is relatively easy to use. It was necessary that I have a software that enabled my online customers to fill out my forms online, which included the use of electronic signatures. This was accomplished somewhat with this software.

Cons

My customers had some problems with the software while filling out forms on my website. The Dashboard is extremely unorganized and sometimes difficult to find my required templates. The biggest negative was that 2 months before the year was up that I purchased, PDFfiller had a price increase. I never was notified, and that price increase was taken out of my card. Since then, I have read similar complaints online concerning card issues with PDFfiller.

Using PDFfiller, PDF editing is quick and simple.

Reviewed a year ago

I can't recall what different projects we did a preliminary with...but we attempted a couple of different projects that were similar in cost - This program won by famous vote across our organization.

Pros

As a project manager, I viewed pdf filler as a significant device for altering and dealing with my PDF reports. The product is unquestionably natural and easy to use, permitting me to rapidly and effectively alter and redo my solicitations, contracts, and other significant reports. I particularly value the extensive variety of altering choices, from adding text and pictures to making usable structures and adding advanced marks. With pdf filler, I'm ready to smooth out my record-the-board cycle and save important time and assets.

Cons

PDFfiller required a couple of days to get familiar with the fundamental usefulness of, however, that will be normal for a product that gives us extraordinary worth. I deducted no focus for this as this is an extremely minor burden

Streamlining Document Management

It is a user-friendly tool with a versatile range of features for document management. While there are some subscription costs and a slight learning curve, it is a valuable asset for businesses and individuals seeking efficient document editing and collaboration solutions.

Pros

User-Friendly. pdfFiller offers an intuitive and easy-to-navigate platform. It also has versatile tools. It provides a wide range of features for editing, filling, and signing PDF documents

Cons

Subscription costs. The pricing plans might be a bit on the higher side for some users. Limited Free Features. The free version has limitations, and the best features come with a subscription.

I did not find the software useful at all. It is very similar to several other products of various names which all have the same issues in usability, user-friendliness, and pricing. There are better products available online for free or at a very low fee.

Cons

Does not support formatting of languages of languges/fonts of languages such as Chinese very well. Once set and previewed, saving, then returning, the format of the document would change slightly. The controls are clunky and hard for beginner users to understand or use efficiently. WORST OF ALL, they will bill you even after you try to unsubscribe, and although they refunded the money quickly in...

LOVE PDF Filler

Reviewed 7 months ago

IT's been great for over 6 years and I plan to continue using it as long as I'm in business. I like simple easy programs to handle my business paperwork. Word is complicated and takes time to learn. PDF filler is just simple and always works great!!

Pros

I needed a way to sign documents prior to sending them and PDF Filler works great for that. I signed up and without looking at instructions was simple to use. I have had PDF Filler now for about 6 years and am now an expert at using it. I set up Templates for forms I use often and now find myself using it rather than Microsoft Word on a regular basis...because its so simple to use.

Cons

It costs me about $120 annually and although worth it, I'd like to see other less expensive options, like a one-time use fee rather than prescriptions.

Moving and transportation with pdf filler

I don't have any problems to solve with my company using this. I use it for digital signatures and creating pdf.

Pros

I like how easy this program was to use. It works like and editor should. The utilities within the program and the ability to do digital signatures, makes this a program any business should use.

Cons

The price is a bit high, and you have to keep the subscription for it, or you lose what you've done. If it could be a reasonable price one time,instead of a company making money every month off it. I personally like a program you download on the computer instead of relying on the cloud.

Best PDF Solution

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

I work with PDF's every single day and that requires a software that can handle PDF files with ease and allow me to create and edit these on a moment's notice. PDFfiller is perfect for that. PDFfiller allows me to store private data fields (and documents) safely and share them with the right recipients knowing no one can intercept the private data on the way. My team and I often use the same templates on a daily/weekly basis, which saves us a lot of time all together. The interface itself is easy to use once you get the hang of things. All things considered, PDFfiller is an outstanding solution for all your business' PDF Needs.

Cons

PDFfiller took a few days to learn the basic functionality of, but that is to be expected from a software that provides us with great value. I did not deduct any points for this as this is a very minor inconvenience.

Poor.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Poor features, PDF changes are difficult to make and some of the PDF changes do not erase totally, can be seen once the document is printed.

Pros

started to be inexpensive then the price jumped in 6 months, making it look like the e-signature will not be included in the subscription unless you pay more.

Cons

signatures are VERY light, the price jumps in 6 months without giving details

Vendor response

Dear Suzanne, many thanks for contacting us and leaving this review! This is really helpful for our current work. Looks like there is a bit confusion here regarding the e-signing. Send to Sign feature is actually available under ANY subscription plan, and you most surely do not have to pay additionally to use it. While SignNow, indeed, is available only under Premium plans. Please, email us more info (to: relationshipmgmt@pdffiller.com) about the troubles with erasing. A screenshot would be helpful, probably. I am sure we can easily fix this! And discuss the current pricing options as well. Many thanks in advance!

This product is fantastic!

Reviewed 5 years ago

It is an easier way to scan in documents that need information changed often. We have made them templates. It allows us to change already printed documents and keep the professional look. It is an easier way to share templates with others on the team.

Pros

The ease of use and the price. The software is almost intuitive, so that almost anyone can use it without spending a lot of time. It has all the functions that get the job done.

Cons

The printing of documents requires having adobe for us. We have found that printing straight from the website, often does not print in full size. We have to save as PDF and then print. You can make it work, but it takes longer.

Perfect Software for Small Business

I use this software for my home inspection business to create required insurance reports and include images. It allows me to upload the required insurance form, edit it and add images for the required mitigation and four-point inspection reports. I love that I am able to save my reports, reuse them by editing as needed and organize them in the straightforward filing system.

Excellent value for all of the features offered. Easy to use and manage organization. Love the FAX feature, signature, editing and capacity to upload images.

An Ultimate Timesaving Software

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have never been bored using this software except for motivating me to give my maximum to the company. Once I am done with my PDF file, I just need to click one icon to send it to the respective recipient or recipients. Comprehensive icons on the right and left sidebars(panes) give a visually soothing experience and increase the efficiency of the work. Last but not least the privacy of the documents is guaranteed as the files can be password protected through this app. Indeed, the above-aforementioned aspects are only a few but there are plentiful advantageous features are available in this software, hence I highly recommend this software to use in your company or even personally.

Pros

One of the most important features I personally like is the ''AUDIT TRAIL". This great aspect helps me to identify each and every change made to the initial report and it gives a comprehensive picture of the amendments executed to the initial report, hence the authenticity of the reports is enhanced. Another great benefit to almost all the users is the ''E-signature". Having this electronically done made signature simply replaced conventional writing email address as the E-sign. Once the signatures are uploaded to this application, you can easily click and select the saved original sign in electronic format.

Cons

Sign-in through the mobile application is somewhat not effective. Our staff has experienced Android devices sending an error message and need to try a few times to access through a mobile device; thus the quality of this software is never sabotaged because the value we are generating from this application is abundant compared to this minor issue. We never experienced any difficulty in using this software on our computers.

Best PDF Editor

Pros

Up until a few years ago, all PDF software seemed the same to me. 'What could they do that much better to make a difference' was a question I asked. PDFfiller answered the question the first time I got to use it. PDFfiller is the perfect PDF editing and managing software that I have tried by a mile. Modifying documents and making last minute changes has never been easier. Smart signature protection, revision history, and commenting are just a few of the great features that make PDFfiller my favorite.

Poor. This used up a lot of my time and I feel like they just wanted people to go through their website rather than have people download PDFs they've edited.

I tried to create fillable forms and they worked on some computers but not all. My boss could not get the form to work on her computer even though other forms worked for her. Customer service didn't know why it didn't work and wanted me to use a web link for her to go to instead. I need these for activity sheets for children and this doesn't work for me. I was ultimately refunded and I've found a better and cheaper program that works on all computers. This was a big waste of time.

For me Im tech savvy, so I can quickly find my way around for the features that I need myself, however for others they may find it tedious to find the feature, maybe I feel that way because I went through google suites, I was also disappointed at the extremely low rating, however most people must complained that it was not free, which is not really a big issue, no software is totally free, they need to make money, so they will surely make some features available as trail, if you need more stuff then pay, 100%, I don't agree with the negative reviews., that's why I stuck around for the software.

Pros

I love this software, actually it is one particular feature that is EXTREMELY attractive for me, which is the ability to make a form that is 1) fillable, 2) electronically signable, 3) that can be available via a link, 4) that can be placed on a website, 5) and best of all accessible only by secure login. All these features are amazing.

Cons

Not so clear features however I'm tech savvy so I had no problem, others they may find it tedious to find needed features. I was also disappointed at the extremely low rating.

Why Did You Change the Subscription Structure?!

Reviewed 3 months ago

Great tool. . .but somebody got greedy with the pricing structure.

Pros

I used PDFFiller for years until they drastically changed their subscription structure. I loved the digital signature, document management and faxing functions of the software. They were absolutely wonderful!

Cons

Around late 2022 and early 2023, I noticed that PDFFiller began to change their subscription structure. I went from paying $47.88 a year for a subscription to them wanting to charge me hundreds of dollars for the same features. Furtheremore, at one point, I started receiving emails that my files would be deleted if I didn't agreed to the change. I quickly departed after that happened. So wrong and shame on you!
