Editors' Review

PDFill allows users to alter existing PDFs or create documents from scratch. 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.

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.

Cons

I havn't had any problem in years

Summary

I use reorder pages, and reformat on a regular basis.
I use Tibetan folio text, these are are 1/2 A4 in the horizontal (not A5). I need to reorder them and then reformat so that it becomes A4 ready for duplex printing. I can do it very easily with this tools.

"Absolutely Awesome!"

May 10, 2015  |  By frogandhat

2015-05-10 04:21:33  |  By frogandhat

 |  Version: PDFill Free PDF Tools 11.0

Pros

It's FREE! For personal AND commercial use!
It allows so much manipulation of PDF files including splitting, merging, deleting and rotating individual pages.
I use this every week at work, and it saves me so much time and money - for example if I wanted to only send a part of a PDF to someone, I used to have to print out the whole PDF and then scan back in what I wanted to send, with the ensuing loss of quality as well. But with this program, I can edit my PDF very quickly and for free. It is indispensable as far as I am concerned. I recommend it to everyone I know.
And I am nothing to do with the publisher - I just LOVE this program!

Cons

Some of the instructions leave a little to be desired, but it is easy enough to work out how to get it to do what you want.

Summary

EVERYONE (in my opinion) should download this in case the publishers realise how useful it is and decide to start charging for it - it is that good that it would be worth paying for (and you have no idea how much it hurts me to say that - I am a right tight wad!)

"Thank you does an excellent job and for free."

April 07, 2015  |  By Jack Gnomon (Guts)

2015-04-07 20:18:47  |  By Jack Gnomon (Guts)

 |  Version: PDFill Free PDF Tools 11.0

Pros

Pretty fast, accurate, great quality images when converting from pdf to jpg. I wish I wasn't so poor I'd love to donate and support this software I use it for work currently.

Cons

Really? It's free! But if I have to say anything bad maybe just need a progress bar when convert from pdf to jpg. But again it's free and unless I'm a paying customer I don't feel I have the right to make any con's.

Summary

Thanks again for your software!

"Doesn't start on Windows 8"

January 27, 2015  |  By riikoti1

2015-01-27 01:42:36  |  By riikoti1

 |  Version: PDFill Free PDF Tools 11.0

Pros

I did not manage to test.

Cons

This tries to install .Net 3.5. My computer has already version 4.0, so that fails. And because it fails, the software assumes that installation has failed and refuses to start.

Summary

Old software, which is not currently up to date with latest environments.

2014-10-14 06:17:53  |  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
