PDF files are easier to read than their Microsoft Word counterparts. However, in order to make changes to them, you need to have a rather pricy program such as Adobe Acrobat. PDFill PDF Editor is a great substitute. You can edit your PDFs the same as you would edit your Word documents. It gives you so many options that you might be overwhelmed.
PDFill PDF Editor smartly tries to mimic Microsoft Word with its layout. Sadly, it doesn't replicate Microsoft Word's ease of use. There are about 100 or more icons that all do different things. While this means you'll be able to do just about anything you want with your PDFs, it also means you'll have trouble finding some features. Though most of the things you'll use most often are in the toolbar, it's still a little too much to see right when you open the program. Whenever you try to make an edit, a new window or text box appears, which is an extra step the program doesn't need to take. Sometimes, this program believes documents are password-protected when they're not, which means even more clicks before you can finish your edits. You need to spend $19.99 to purchase this software, as it's free to try but it will leave you with a watermark on output.
While most users would be fine with a more slimmed-down program, PDFill PDF Editor with its variety of features is a blessing for designers. Users who just need some simple options should perhaps skip on this program and look for a much more user-friendly and less laborious option.
