    "i have used paid version for years..."

    August 7, 2014  |   By shutchison77

    Version: PDFill PDF Editor 11.0 build 4

    Pros

    their customer service is excellent.. the one time i had a problem i couldnt figure out, I emailed them and they replied back the same day. I said because of that I would write a review. I usually am too lazy :) i have edited hundreds of contracts for my real estate business using this program. i never print anything anymore, I use this to sign everything but deeds. I use the whiteout function and add text where ever i need it. it sets itself up as a printer option, so you can print to pdf.

    worth every penny

    Cons

    no cons that i can think of

    "PDFill does NOT edit PDF Text and Objects as advertised"

    August 6, 2014  |   By robatmid

    Version: PDFill PDF Editor 11.0 build 4

    Pros

    I purchased PDFill to edit PDF text and objects, as the first paragraph clearly explains this is what this tool does "supposed to do". I quote "You can edit your PDFs the same as you would edit your Word documents." BS! Not only is not the same, its actually impossible... and the developer clearly states this in the Frequently Asked Questions page on their website. Search Question "Can PDFill edit the static text inside PDF?" Their suggested work a-rounds did not work either, one of which does not even exist in the product.

    Cons

    The Developer of this software clearly states on their site that PDFill can NOT edit PDF text... why they claim the software does on CNET is beyond me. Its a lie! Go to their FAQ section on their website to see for yourself "if" your intention is to edit PDF text like I was.

    If I could get back 1/10 the time I spent trying to figure out how to make PDFill edit text and other objects, I would have most of my hair back.

    Summary

    http://www.pdfill.com/faq.html
    Can PDFill edit the static text inside PDF? Not directly. There are two ways:
    1. Use the Whiteout function to cover the original text and then retype over it.
    2. Use PDF Object Remover to remove the original text to get a new PDF. Then, open this new PDF to type new text.
    Good luck getting either of these suggested work a-rounds working. And please let me know when you locate the "Object Remover"... I searched all 10,000+ icons tools in this complicated piece of false advertised junk and couldn't located it.

    "Great, frustrating and untrustworthy software"

    August 3, 2014  |   By 1stewart111

    Version: PDFill PDF Editor 11.0 build 4

    Pros

    Great and easy to use.

    Cons

    As a very, very longtime purchased user, the company is so busy shooting out new, buggy versions that CONTINUE frustrate users in its BASIC functions. Everything is fine, and you spent hours preparing a document, only to find out that it will NOT allow you to print after popping up an error message. I have blown many an expensive deadline because of this, therefore I have no trust in the product.
    Another critical concern is that it will not allow you to change the fonts when it is in the 'fill in the box in the imported .pdf form' mode. I have pulled out a lot of my hair over these two basic problems that have been part of the software since day one.

    Summary

    A wonderful, useful and useless product. Don't trust its use when you are on a deadline at crunch time. It will let you down.
    The company needs to stop and get these two very basic and long-standing problems right before they ship Version 13.

    "Only lets you scan one page at a time"

    March 31, 2014  |   By Curtisne

    Version: PDFill PDF Editor 11.0 build 4

    Pros

    I thought it would let me scan multiple pages to PDF files but they limit you on the free trial version to only scanning one page at a time.

    Cons

    I gave a try to this tool to modify my scanned PDF files but no success. I'm using PDF (running on Mavericks) and it simply did not detect my document. Now finally, I am settled with another similar tool named Wondershare PDF Editor:

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

    and it lived up to my expectations. The only thing missing is that it (Wondershare PDF Editor) does not provide an online technician support. But still would recommend it!

    PS I'm not advertising this program. I just found it useful and thought of sharing with others. I would also advise you to try before you buy.

    Summary

    Look PDFill - If you're going to provide a product, you should provide some sort of support plain and simple.

    "Not free if it Watermarks"

    March 24, 2014  |   By StuartHelm

    Version: PDFill PDF Editor 11.0 build 4

    Pros

    It seems like a good program, but it's not free if it puts a dark bold face font watermark on the pages.

    Cons

    It watermarks every page.

    Summary

    Don't bother unless you plan on paying for it. It's not free.
