    "Either buggy software or there are no PDF standards..."

    September 15, 2010  |   By star-tech


    This product has potential. I don't need to explain the pros of being able to create form-fillable PDF's.


    PDF's look and behave differently when opened with Apple Preview vs. Adobe Reader. Options for form objects don't stick half the time. Show grid doesn't show a grid. Alignment guides would be great. Numerous other quirky behaviors in the editor.


    I have tried multiple times over the last couple of years to justify purchasing this product. I just spent over 3 hours trying to create a simple credit card authorization form for my customers. I have no problem with support's response time or willingness to respond, but it always seems to result in being told that my newly created PDF is corrupted or has something wrong with it, never that the software has problems. All in all, this software needs a lot more polish before I will pay for this product.
