    "Great tool!!!"

    February 18, 2013  |   By jameswells73

    Version: PDFill PDF Editor 7.0

    Pros

    Great for making raw pdfs and or taking an existing document or graphic and adding the pdfill option to it. Help me and my office out greatly. My favorite option was the choice of colors for the areas to be filled. not just yellow, but blue, ect. was great.

    Cons

    I think the only thing i remember was one section had a limit on how many characters, and even then only ran into a problem once or twice with it. So almost a non factor.

    "Spend $20 and be happy the rest of your life."

    April 18, 2010  |   By juniper47

    Version: PDFill PDF Editor 7.0

    Pros

    Functional and intuitive. Feature-rich with continual development. Top-notch customer service, <24-hour response. The tools are comprehensive and extraordinary. The printer makes the best quality PDFs or images.

    Cons

    Really wish they would let us change the "producer" info in the created pdf. Or at least take the word "free" out of it. However, I haven't asked for this feature and they probably would.

    Summary

    I use the tools many times a day. Prints any file to a PDF- the quality is far better than the MS PDF printers. Documents look GOOD. Lots of print quality options. Prints to image formats also like jpg or tiff or png.

    The PDF functions work well. Form creation, filling, editing, protecting, watermarks, etc.

    Bottom line is they continually improve this product and the $20 I spent more than 6 years ago was SO WORTH IT. It works so well I don't need support, but over the years I have contacted them twice. Once they answered back within hours with the fix (it was my ghostscript out of date.) The other time, I made a suggestion about the default file names, they said it was a good idea. And the change was incorporated into the program within weeks. Other tools include splitting, rearranging, converting images to PDF and vice versa, watermarks, security options.... on and on.

    It's a great program.

    "NOT FREE ! ! Puts watermark on pages until you buy it!"

    April 7, 2010  |   By paularel

    Version: PDFill PDF Editor 7.0

    Pros

    Seems to work well, despite the myriad of toolbars with their itty-bitty icons.

    Cons

    Wasted time figuring the program out only to have this STUPID watermark message show up when I was done. VERY ANNOYING ! Should be listed as a trial version only. Deceptive of authors to list it as free.

    Summary

    NOT FREE ! ! Not intuitively designed interface, but it seems as if the program works well. If only the authors would have been honest about the necessity to purchase it to USE any of the documents you modify or create, I'd be much happier. At $20, it may well be worth the price, but I'm honked off at being intentionally misled, so I won't buy or recommend it.

    "What a bunch of liars! This is not free!"

    March 18, 2010  |   By ecodevoman

    Version: PDFill PDF Editor 7.0

    Pros

    It is a bit buggy and not smooth. Don't like anything about it.

    Cons

    This should not be allowed to state it is freeware. If you can get it to work, they try to extort a registration fee, or else plaster everything you make with a diagonal text statement that makes all the output completely useless.

    Summary

    Don't bother with this piece of ****. Never support liars who trick you into wasting your time for software that is not freeware. It doesn't work well enough to pay any money for. I keep wondering why CNET provides positive reviews of junk dealers who pull this kind of B.S.

    "YEA!!! JUST SAVED $145!"

    March 11, 2010  |   By beckola1967

    Version: PDFill PDF Editor 7.0

    Pros

    Used AA 7.0 pro for last 4 years. I scan and create fill-able forms constantly. This does that exactly like AA but for $145 cheaper on an AA 9.0 Pro upgrade and $245 less than the non-upgrade price.

    Cons

    None so far.

    Summary

    I bought a new computer with 64bit Win 7. My AA 7.0 Pro wouldn't work. So I downloaded the 9.0 pro trial. Nice but I hated having to spend anymore $ after just paying for a new computer. Almost returned the computer because all my programs won't transfer. Then I found out about all these new programs that do what the big guys do for much less. This replaces my AA. Gimp replaces my Photoshop. I feel liberated to be out from the Adobe strong hold that's cost me a lot of money over the years. Cheers to the developers of this and all the other 'replacement' programs out there. You've made my day.

    "Able to add on text and stuff - OK for $20"

    March 10, 2010  |   By Bristol_CT_Dave

    Version: PDFill PDF Editor 7.0

    Pros

    Reasonably powerfull and intuitive interface. Like the ability to move to tool bars to the side to create vertical page space. I wish Microsoft would figure that out by now. Decent buy for $20. Good for job application PDF's without text fields.

    Cons

    I wished they had a fully operational trial period so you can "try before buy" without that rubber stamp output. At least they published that would happen.

    Summary

    Powerfull GUI, worthwhile buy for $20. Rubber stamp output before buying should have a trial grace period.

    Yeah - I bought it.

    "Free version is only 1st 10 pages - $50 for the rest"

    February 19, 2010  |   By devinish

    Version: PDFill PDF Editor 7.0

    Pros

    n/a - I wouldn't buy it

    Cons

    Free version only gets you the first 10 pages of a 150 page document; plan to spend $50 to get the rest of your document.

    Summary

    There is nothing more annoying than bait and switch. How would I possibly know whether your program is worth buying unless you give me the option to use it IN FULL at least 1 time. I am not looking for a free program, but I would like to test drive a program before purchasing it. Companies should not, as has this one, make "free" versions that make their products look inept.

    "Easy to use and inexpensive"

    January 25, 2010  |   By jrodela

    Version: PDFill PDF Editor 7.0

    Pros

    Easy to insert text into any PDF. Included tools are great to manage multiple PDF files.

    Cons

    Can be difficult to line up text.

    Summary

    This is the easiest and least expensive product I have found to fill in PDF docs that don't have the auto fields. It is also great to scan docs into PDF's and then edit and fill in forms. Included free tools are useful for managing any PDF document from combining multiple PDF's into one to altering the orientation. I would definitely recommend this program.
