    "This company wants to rip you off!"

    July 09, 2014   |   By nneumann

    Version: PDF Architect 2.0.3

    Pros

    Has some useful functions, when you pay a lot of money for all keys

    Cons

    They say pay only what you need but when you start you realize you need to buy all options to really use the tool.

    After I bought all keys (I think I payed almost 90$ in the end) I could not believe that two weeks later they wrote me an email saying that they launched a new version now (PDF Architect 2) and I need to upgrade for 60$!! They say normally it would cost 100? but when you look on the web site you see it only costs 79$. What a rip off after I already payed so much money. When you refuse the system asks you again and again, every single time you open the tool.

    System is super slow and slows everything down.

    When you want to create a PDF from a doc (which is the most simple part) it only works every second time, sometimes you have to try three or four times.

    When you edit the text it always switches to a text font the doc cannot read and you have to choose the correct font almost after every single word, it takes ages!

    Summary

    I think this is not a serious company

    "useless and unhelpful"

    May 01, 2014   |   By a_newsam

    Version: PDF Architect 1.0.52

    Pros

    good layout of menus and functions

    Cons

    1. not intuitive to use
    2. Type Text function is rubbish, so difficult to add and delete text
    3. no user manual or help file with software nor either is available online
    4. no live technical support; have to raise ticket and communicate by emails; the support guy sends copy-paste responses
    5. no function to convert scanned text to "real" text

    Summary

    do not buy because you will be disappointed with the functions that don't work as expected, and you will waste time trying to figure out how to use the software
    when I bought the software online for immediate install, an automatic email arrived with download link but NO activation key!
    I had to email support team for activation key
    this software is not worth the GBP 65 (pounds sterling) price tag

    "Who Can Tell Without A Trial"

    January 22, 2014   |   By codemonkey95037

    Version: PDF Architect 1.0.52

    Pros

    Interface looks intuitive

    Cons

    Except for a couple of Adobe Reader like functions you have to purchase features to even try them out.

    Summary

    This is a Source Forge Project???? Really sad to see where "open source" is going. I don't mind paying maintenance fees, if they are reasonable, for SF projects, but this kind of activity is starting to ruin the panache and appeal of SF... Until these developers give at least a 30 day full functional trial, stay away.

    "Can't even copy content to clipboard... Seriously?"

    January 17, 2014   |   By gotmilked4u

    Version: PDF Architect 1.0.52

    Pros

    An alternative PDF reader.

    Cons

    Toolbars are cluttered and packed with things it doesn't do. For free, anyway. Copy to clipboard has been disabled. So you can look at your pdf, but that it's it.

    Summary

    Adobe reader has become such bloatware and I really hoped this would be a better solution, but it hardly compares. For someone to benefit from this software, they must buy something.

    "Good if you want to pay just what you need"

    September 12, 2013   |   By SengU87

    Version: PDF Architect 1.0.52

    Pros

    You get a free feature of combining, splitting, and reordering PDF if you just sign up your email. Remove from email list as needed.
    Other features can be purchased as needed if you don't want to pay full price included in Adobe Acrobat. If you need all the features, you should probably opt for Adobe Acrobat.

    Cons

    Have to go through some setup for some features.
    By default, it installs plug-in for IE and integration for Office products. It can be removed in custom installation or change program under control panel.

    "this program sucks"

    July 08, 2013   |   By planet_horizon

    Version: PDF Architect 1.0.52

    Pros

    I hate to say it, but I installed this program and trusted my computer with the plugin, but it slowed all the office products down.

    Cons

    It takes a long time to open a document in word, excel, publisher, outlook, etc. It would have benefited me if I would have reviewed what people were saying about it before, but my mistake. It has frustrated the heck out of me. It is very unfortunate. DO NOT DOWNLOAD this program!!

    Summary

    The plugin is detrimental to the office product family. I would give it a zero star rating, but that is not possible. ABYSMAL!

    "NOT free to convert or to do anything else!"

    May 29, 2013   |   By juanpbotha

    Version: PDF Architect 1.0.52

    Pros

    Not much...nice interface?

    Cons

    Pay Pay Pay for everything. Not even a trial to see if it can actually do for what you have to pay.

    Summary

    DO NOT download.
