"Just used AbleWord to edit and save a PDF - amazing."

May 10, 2015  |  By onebod

 |  Version: Ableword 2.1

Pros

Easy to install, worked like a charm to edit text and save as PDF.
It's just like typing in a word processing document. Nice!
Very impressed.
(After looking at lots of reviews, 2nd choice would have been PDFedit.cz, but haven't tried it yet.)

Cons

None found so far (first use only).

Summary



Updated on May 10, 2015

Having now re-edited the PDF I saved, AbleWord seems to have confused what areas to allow me to type in - a bit of a shame - it was doing so well. Easy enough to "insert text frame", but a shame it can't carry on seeing the frames that were in the original.

"Total fail on a PDF from 1996"

March 14, 2015  |  By Galane

 |  Version: Ableword 2.1

Pros

Small download

Cons

Needs more work, no way to contact the author(s) to report problems.

Summary

I need to move a graphic that's covering some text in the proLIGHT 2000 DOS manual (found here http://www.intelitekdownloads.com/Manuals/CNC/Obsolete/ ) and after taking a while to open it, all Ableword 3 shows is the graphics and a bit of gibberish text.

"Neat little program"

January 30, 2015  |  By Stimpie9

 |  Version: Ableword 2.1

Pros

Dead easy to use. Clear GUI, lots of features, reliable and has decent help files. Think even my gramma could use it!

Cons

Doesn't automatically spell-check as you type (but does at the click of a button)

Summary

I've found this to be a pleasant little programme to use. It has enough features for me, a casual user/part-time author but I particularly love being able to open and edit pdf files. I've found it really reliable and user-friendly.
