Editors' Review

+
It might be hard to believe, but the PDF sun doesn't rise and set on Adobe Acrobat. This suite of PDF-creation tools offers a cheaper alternative based on open-source software called Ghostscript. PDFill PDF Editor lets you design PDF documents complete with text boxes, embedded images, hyperlinks, and forms, and can output encrypted PDFs. In addition to the main application, the suite provides a number of utilities for splitting and merging documents, watermarking them, and adding headers and footers. We're glad to have them, but we would be even happier to see them integrated into the main program. Besides the logo the demo places atop every document, our only other complaint with PDFill PDF Editor is that it's quite slow at opening large (400-page) PDFs, even on a fast computer. Overall, PDFill PDF Editor probably won't make Adobe quake in its boots, but it's a good option for users who don't need the power of the Adobe package, or don't want to pay for it.

"very good product!"

July 16, 2009  |  By tango_doll

 |  Version: PDFill PDF Editor 6.0

Pros

Initially, confusing to use but once I bought the product, I love it!

Cons

Sample product puts a watermark on finished pdf documents and so you really need to buy the product BUT it's only £12.50 (16/07/09 exch rate) which isn't a patch on the cost of the Adobe equivalent.

Summary

I like the product and once I got the hang of it, I was editing pdf's everywhere! Recommended!

"Excellent Product"

June 11, 2009  |  By mondieux

 |  Version: PDFill PDF Editor 6.0

Pros

I've been using PDFill and have to say, it is one of the better PDF editors out there. I tried some others but they were either too cumbersome or just didn't have what it takes. I use this in a business environment and it works wonderfully.

Cons

Can't really find any negatives.

Summary

If you're looking for an easy to use PDF editor this is a great product. Also I might mention that the PDF tools are awesome. Especially when combining multiple PDF files into one file.
Thanks PDFill keep up the good work

"Very easy to learn and work with."

April 10, 2009  |  By Alton Paul

 |  Version: PDFill PDF Editor 6.0

Pros

Am not at all familiar with working with PDF files, but this program was very simple and easy learn. Not once did I have to open Help.

Cons

At present I have no Cons.

Summary

I only downloaded the program a few days ago and I had no problems finding what I needed, or how to use it. With the importance of the documents edited I am very impressed.

"Not free to try!"

April 02, 2009  |  By Table83

 |  Version: PDFill PDF Editor 6.0

Pros

It's a good PDF editor

Cons

It's not free. I download, and edit a PDF only to find a giant watermark accross it when I try to use it.

Summary

I know that I shouldn't be so cheap, but frankly I don't have $20 and it's only once in a blue moon that I need to edit PDF's. So a free to try is essential. This one makes you think it's free, and then scams you at the end. Thats crap!

"Absolutely Fabulous!  Thanks."

March 15, 2009  |  By martinezelizabeth234

 |  Version: PDFill PDF Editor 6.0

Pros

It?s GREAT! You folks saved me hundreds of bucks from having to buy the Adobe Professional, which I (obviously) didn?t need! From download to installation to registration & usage, everything flowed without flaw.

Cons

None so far.

Summary

All of this for an extremely reasonable price AND with free future upgrades? Wow! Thank you so much for producing such an awesome product!

Now, instead of having to write out applications and other forms, I can fill in the .pdf file and make it both legible and professional! For the first time in a long time, I?m actually impressed with inexpensive downloaded software. Though I intend to (primarily) use this to fill-in .pdf documents, I know there is much more I can do with this and I surely intend to master this software.

"best value"

February 09, 2009  |  By robinsonjennifer

 |  Version: PDFill PDF Editor 6.0

Pros

With only $20, it is most valuable pdf editor in the market. The free support and free upgrade really impresses me!

Cons

I found one problem. The pdf form created by pdfill can be only fillable and printable inside adobe reader, but not savable by adobe reader. So, I have to add a submit button to send the filled data back to me using their free submit services.
