Editors' Review

+
This PDF converter didn't wow us with its feature set, but it demonstrated good speed and usability. Like similar programs, DeskPDF Professional installs as a virtual printer, allowing you to convert any printable document to PDF format. You also can select a file for transformation by right-clicking it or dropping it onto the program shortcut. DeskPDF Professional supports such PDF features as metadata, viewing options, and password protection. It also can merge documents, but it can't, unfortunately, bookmark them. The program comes with a handful of watermarks, and we like its ability to save settings in profiles for quick application later on. Overall, DeskPDF Professional provides solid functionality that ought to satisfy most people with basic PDF-conversion needs.

"good product possibly one of the best of its kind"

May 24, 2010  |  By johnhaamill12

 |  Version: DeskPDF Professional 2.5.9

Pros

ease of use able to convert files easily

Cons

good product nothing to dislike well thought out and good for businesses as well as for individuals who may be authors and need to convert files from word to PDF or vice versa

Summary

HI I was surfing and came on your site I downloaded the free trial of your document which allows converting from Word to PDF I found it to be easy to use and was very impressed with it Unfortunately I dont convert many documents to pdf therefore i feel it is not cost effective to purchase the full version for myself Kind regards John

"No other PDF converter can compare."

May 21, 2010  |  By bassaddkt

 |  Version: DeskPDF Professional 2.5.9

Pros

Ease of use, not a lot of annoying little pop up windows, settings, buttons, check marks.. its simple, allows you to do what you need to do and it does it fast.

Cons

Can't think of a single one.

Summary

I've used many other products, some free, some purchased and this one by far is the most power, most user friendly and the least annoying out of all of them. Way to go.

"Makes it easy to send out PDFs that anyone can open"

May 21, 2010  |  By kh74194

 |  Version: DeskPDF Professional 2.5.9

Pros

very EASY pdf creator

Cons

none so far

Summary

I use Docudesk every day to attach important documents with
emails. It makes it easier for everyone to be able to open a PDF
file and not have to think about a Mac or PC, none of that
irritating stuff.

Look forward to any software Docudesk comes up with. I could
not have done most of my work without it! Thanks a lot. You guys
are great. I LOVE Docudesk!

"Great program for creating pdf documents!"

May 20, 2010  |  By baweinbaum

 |  Version: DeskPDF Professional 2.5.9

Pros

Way cheaper than Adobe Acrobat! Works Great! Great Customer Service!

Cons

There are none.

Summary

I came across DeskPDF probably 10 years ago and have been using it ever since. I even lost my program and activation code when my computer crashed several years ago but still had the receipt and all I had to do was contact docudesk and was back up and running again in no time. I just got a new laptop and will be upgrading to the professional version so I can password-protect my pdf docs. Thank you docudesk!

"A reliable product that is very reasonably priced"

May 20, 2010  |  By motg

 |  Version: DeskPDF Professional 2.5.9

Pros

Ease of use, reliability, versatility, accurate rendition of original documents. It does all that is claimed in a simple but very effective and speedy manner.

Cons

I have not found a problem other than it is not compatible with the ADOBE products used by printing companies. For everything else cannot see it being beaten.

Summary

I have just converted an extensive Word doc...all 840 pages of text, astronomical maps, conventional maps both colour and line, line architectural drawings, landscape drawings, numerous photographs etc etc

The updates to desk PDF Pro are fantastic...for long docs such as this I used to wait literally ages and have the fomatting process on show the whole time. Now? 4 minutes total with no jumping format pages on the screen...and that is at 3600dpm prepress...the result is absolutely supurb for quality.

Updated on May 20, 2010

I have used DeskPDF for a number of years and have not found a flaw to date. The product is reliable, accurate and speedy. The site service is second to none.

DeskPDF is highly recommended as is deskUNPDF from the same company. I use both products extensively and have no criticism whatever. They do exactly what it is claimed they do...and do it extremely well.

"Excellent product, quick custome assistance response."

May 20, 2010  |  By egroig

 |  Version: DeskPDF Professional 2.5.9

Pros

As a Lecturer on Quality Management Systems I appreciate your "delighting your customer " approach. UNPDF works well on my new laptop (notebook). I have a lot of PDF documents to read and convert and this product meets 99% of my requirements.

Cons

Documents of over 250 pages are problematic.

Summary

Highly recommended as a "Quality" product with great support.

"Hyperlinks NOT supported. Would be great, is useless."

April 12, 2010  |  By ecoV

 |  Version: DeskPDF Professional 2.5.9

Pros

Great tool, everything works well BUT one major flaw makes it useless. I have the professional paid for version.

Cons

This application does not support hyperlinks in the PDF documents it generates.

Summary

This application does not support hyperlinks in the PDF documents it generates. I contacted support. They replied :
--
"Hello Marc, Embedded hyperlinks are not fully supported by our software, explicit links however are."
--
BUT even explicit links do NOT work for me (although they did for a while). When I submitted again, got no reply. If you need to produce documents that include hyperlinks for web redirection and navigation DO NOT purchase this software. Although it may work a while (it did for me) it may stop at a certain point (who knows why) and you will end up having paid a useless piece of software.

Would be great, is useless.
