"Look under the hood before you buy"

July 16, 2010  |  By Laledin

 |  Version: PDF Converter Professional 7.0


Very good at perserving the look of the pdf layout


Did not convert to an easily editable document as advertised


I am not a power user but had a need to convert a PDF file to Word for Work. Found this software via google and downloaded the 30 day trial. Interface was fairly easy to navigate and was quickly usable. However when the document was opened in Both Word 2003 and 2007 a lot of text in the document was converted to table rather than the text of the original document. Many items that were repeated on more than three pages were now suddenly included in headers and footers. TAB markings were also an issue as well as paragrah justfication being hit and miss. Overall the program did as it advertised it converted well and the layout was true to the pdf. Editing capability left much to be desired in this users mind.

This program apparently has all the features for PDF conversion, editing and reading in a well managed interface at a reasonable price.


This program totally kills firefox when you try to simply read a PDF document. There is no fix and apparently Nuance has no interest in fixing the problem. I paid for this program.


Save your money, the program hangs and Nuance is difficult/impossible to deal with.

"Beats the pants off Adobe Acrobat"

December 03, 2009  |  By scottwilkins

A fraction of the cost of Adobe Acrobat.
Very easy to navigate and use.
Form Creation tools are faster and more accurate.


Tech Support is a pay-per-use type (not free)
A bit buggy


If you need to do more with PDF than print documents into the PDF format, this is the software to get. It's so much easier to use than Adobe's. There's a lot of negativity about bugs and support. I see a few too, but they are easy to work around. First, install the software without the Office and I.E. plug-ins (you don't really need them anyway) and if you run accross a PDF file with errors which can cause PDF Converter to crash, just re-print it using PDF Converters PDF printer and you'll be able to edit your new document. Easy.

Considering this software is a fraction of the cost of Acrobat, I recommend it hands down.
