    "Terrific PDF Printer - more than I expected!"

    October 17, 2011  |   By bob.taylor

    Version: PDF ReDirect 2.5.2

    Pros

    - Combines PDFs from different sources (document, then CAD drawing, then jpg rendering, then excel cost estimate).
    - Specify the way the PDF opens: with/without toolbars, full screen, navigation buttons...
    - Up front, easily seen and understood quality settings for images and page rotation. No diving into sub-sub-sub menus to find a setting.
    - Works as well as the expensive Adobe bloat-ware. But it's not only free; it doesn't take 100% of the computer's effort to do its job.

    Cons

    None found - really. And I've looked!

    Summary

    Was just looking for a better solution than PDF 995 that I bought years ago. This is a *MUCH* better solution!

    "Creates multiple pages of same thing"

    October 2, 2011  |   By SailingDreams

    Version: PDF ReDirect 2.5.2

    Pros

    Easy to install (didn't need a download manager.exe like pdf creator - very scary)

    Cons

    Creates multiple pages of the same page when using 2003 power point

    Summary

    OK, but multiple page issue a real pain.

    "Saves me a lot of paper"

    September 24, 2011  |   By Demandred71

    Version: PDF ReDirect 2.5.2

    Pros

    Installs a print driver so that you can select PDF Redirect instead of a actual printer. Saves paper, and if you are on a laptop you can still "print" when you are not connected to a printer. It is compatible with all my Readers.

    Cons

    None at all.

    Summary

    Just works, no problems, and saves paper.

    Updated on Dec 18, 2011

    Still does what it claims.

    "Very Good Piece of Software"

    June 28, 2011  |   By Xyberion1K3

    Version: PDF ReDirect 2.5.2

    Pros

    Has everything that is needed, encryption, merging documents, fast, free.

    Cons

    None To Date

    Summary

    I dropped PDF24 after I found this program. PDF Redirect offers so much more. If you just stare at it, the program is confusing. If you need help, there is a help tab. This program is a must-have.

    "PDF ReDirect is the best "TOTALLY FREE" PDF software!"

    April 29, 2011  |   By JewelryGal

    Version: PDF ReDirect 2.5.2

    Pros

    It meets all of my needs! It easily makes copies of my online invoices, recipes, online info, etc. I still don't know how to merge files, but it's a nice option. Read other reviewers here who have a better understanding of all of it's features.

    Cons

    Non that I've seen, none at all.

    Summary

    Download the free version, use it for the VERY flexible & relaxed 90 days of trial, then buy the Pro for around $30? With either, you won't be disappointed!

    "Works great! Easier than anticipated for MERGING!"

    April 23, 2011  |   By SaintlyMic

    Version: PDF ReDirect 2.5.2

    Pros

    After I figured out how to use this program it worked great for MERGING.
    I was able to merge 14 PDF files in the order I wanted, and each of those files were very large with many pages.
    The resulting PDF I made now has 5,574 pages total.

    Cons

    The only Con I had was in figuring out how to get this program to work.
    Once I figured it out it worked easier than I had thought!
    My problem was I kept thinking there were buttons I needed to find to make it work, but I realized I was wrong.

    Summary

    This program works and is very easy to use.
    It has less steps to accomplish PDF MERGING than other programs.
    This program will merge both text and images in the exact order of the PDF documents/files that you desire, and it does NOT destroy or alter the original PDFs.

    I was careful, though, by making copies of my originals and putting those copies into another folder.
    However, the copies were NOT damaged at all.

    The only thing I wish this program could do was to be able to change the original page numbers so that they match the new higher number from merging the PDF documents.
    Other than THAT this program is PERFECT for merging PDF files!

    The truth is that it is actually better that the page numbers remain as they are for this particular project I was working on.
    However, there may be a future merging that may need new page numbers assigned once the merge has taken place, but I cannot think of any reasons why I would need the new page numbers assigned at this time.

    I did NOT have any other needs for this program, so I do NOT know if it works for any other uses that it may offer.

    Does anyone know if this program can change the visible page numbers to reflect the new higher page number count when the merge is being constructed?
    Please contact me if this program has any such ability!

    Thank you!

    Version: PDF ReDirect 2.5.2

    Pros

    This software is true freeware and well-written. It worked well right from the start. There are no nags or watermarks. Because of this combination of things, I chose to make a donation. I love it!

    Cons

    I have found nothing to complain about.

    Summary

    Get it. Use it. Enjoy it.
