Editors' Review

At one time or another, just about everybody ends up wishing that they could edit a PDF document. Maybe it's a form that needs to be filled out, or information that needs to be combined with something else in another document. This is a common problem, but many of the programs that are capable of editing PDF files cost hundreds of dollars. DeskUNPDF Standard is an affordable alternative that makes it easy to convert PDF files to editable formats.

The program's interface is well-designed and intuitive. To convert a file, users simply select the source PDF, choose an output format--the options include Word, OpenOffice, and text documents--and click Convert. The program quickly converts the PDF to the desired editable output format. For users who desire a little more control, there are plenty of optional settings that can be adjusted; users can specify page ranges, margin exclusion, text formatting, and how to handle images. Users can also purchase an OCR add-on that will allow them to scan documents directly to DeskUNPDF and convert them to editable formats. DeskUNPDF comes with a surprisingly detailed PDF User Guide, but we didn't need to refer to it; everything about the program seemed pretty self-explanatory to us. Overall, we found DeskUNPDF to be incredibly easy to use, and we think it's a great choice for anyone who needs to edit a PDF file without investing in a program like Adobe Acrobat.

DeskUNPDF installs and uninstalls without issues. We recommend this program to all users.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of DeskUNPDF Standard 3.0.100323. The trial version is limited to a one-page conversion.

"User friendly but useless!"

December 04, 2007  |  By Timreid

 |  Version: DeskUNPDF Standard 2.0.7.11.03

Cons

I tried the software on one document. The conversion process was a complete failure. The document was completely illegible when finished. The trial was for one page of one document. I was unable to use full functioning and one page is useless. It is impossible to test the abilities of the program based on one page. This software is basically crap!

Program threw up an error message when I tried to open a password protected PDF I had created a few months ago and needed to edit.

Allowed me to input the password but obviously couldn't open it.

"Great program"

June 27, 2007  |  By Dusty Monk

 |  Version: DeskUNPDF PDF Converter Standard 1 build 070129

Pros

This is a great program. It's easy to use and if you have a problem, the people are very helpful and easy to work with. As they say, if there's a problem you get an answer with in 24 hours or less.There's no other PDF program that does so much for the price.

Cons

There is nothing that I don't like about this program.

"Timesaving and a must HAVE if using PDFs!"

March 08, 2007  |  By RobEZ1

 |  Version: DeskUNPDF PDF Converter Standard 1 build 070129

Pros

Thank you for deskUNPDF! We have been using deskPDF for over a year with never a problem. We recently added deskUNPDF. In the past we have converted PDF documents to Word by scanning them, passing them through OCR, and then tidying up the result. We typically do this eight to ten times a month. The first time we used deskUNPDF it saved about 20 minutes -- just on one document! And having both products work with Windows Vista is important, as we are in process of upgrading all five of our computers. Good job, guys!
