Editors' Review

+

PDF files are a common format for most businesses today. However, altering and creating fresh PDFs remains a mystery for many people. PDFill PDF Tools hopes to make this process simpler with a number of options, but the busy interface may overwhelm less experienced users.

This freeware program has a cluttered interface that will take some studying and experimentation to master. However, all the elements serve a purpose, and many will look familiar to those who have used a word-processing program. The screen looks very much like Microsoft Word's display, with a ruler running down the side and familiar buttons for saving, creating, printing, and fonts along the top. Along the left side are a string of icons with tools for creating PDF-specific tools like check boxes, drop-down menus, radio buttons, and more. The right side of the screen features icons that help give PDFs a professional sheen, by sizing and balancing the page with various tools. Along the bottom are still more buttons; these allow users to do everything from drawing text boxes, highlighting text, or even adding videos.

PDFill allows users to alter existing PDFs or create documents from scratch. One of its most unique aspects is the helpful hints. When our test PDF opened, it contained no fillable fields and offered to show us how to create them. Boxes pop up regularly throughout and offer other helpful hints.

The only negative is PDFill's crowded interface. With all four sides covered in buttons, it can get overwhelming. However, with a little practice we think that anyone can create and alter PDFs using this excellent download.

    "This FREE software exceeded my expectations."

    October 14, 2014   |   By omarjuvera

    Version: PDFill Free PDF Tools 11.0

    Pros

    TOTALLY FREE
    No Ads
    No Spam
    No limitations
    No branding (Software company's watermark or logos added to PDF)
    No bothersome third-party software
    Best of all: IT WORKS!!!

    Cons

    Absolutely NONE

    Summary

    This software exceeded my expectations!
    It did what it had to with absolutely no limitations, and the best of all...it is totally FREE.

    It is a hassle to find a good, free, PFD software. I usually have to go through ten or more before I give up. This was on the top list and worked perfectly. I recommend it

    Easy-to-use tools for manipulating PDF files. Free (no limitations, watermarks, etc.).

    "Sweet, simple, powerful."

    August 25, 2014   |   By juniper47

    Version: PDFill Free PDF Tools 11.0

    Pros

    "Prints" files to PDF or images (in a lot of different formats.)
    Converts PDF to images and vice versa.
    Edits PDF.
    Fills forms in PDFs , creates PDFs with form fields.
    Can use it to strip form fields out of a PDF so I can fill it the way I want (font, additional notes, whatever.)
    Removes or inserts or reorders pages in PDFs.
    Encrypts/decrypts PDFs. Your reader can decrypt with the password/pin you provide them.
    This and Irfanview are the must-have utility programs I put on every machine I work on.
    I use it to "print" from a document I created to get an image for business cards or letterhead or whatever.
    I have rarely (maybe twice) needed support, but both time I had my answer within a couple of hours.
    This program has stayed in active development as long as I have owned it.
    A one-time purchase makes you eligible for upgrades for the rest of your life.

    Cons

    I just don't know any.
    Oh, sometimes it makes mistakes in super-complicated MS Word files when I have created a document with every feature in the book. However MS Word can often (not always) can save them as PDFs. If PDFill can't do it, then I usually have to take a screenshot and crop and save it that way.

    Summary

    The three programs are a suite, that work together to do anything you want with PDF files. I have used this program for YEARS. Maybe 15 years? Over 12, for sure. Definitely the best $20 I ever spent on software. The multi user license I purchased for work was reasonable also. I use it daily.

    "Great Product"

    April 24, 2014   |   By Amanda399

    Version: PDFill Free PDF Tools 11.0

    Pros

    I do not like Adobe Acrobat. For me, it's kinda of complicated. I prefer the PDF tools. It is simple enough to manage PDF files.
    I am settled with another similar tool named wondershare pdf editor

    www.pdf-file-converter.com/pdf-editor-for-mac/

    Cons

    Nothing bad to say

    Summary

    For me, this is exactly a handy tool for me to read and manage PDF file. And Awesome tool for multilingual PDF's. and its backward compatible with all Microsoft word not just 2010 version.
