"It does what is advertised, documentation is too spare"

February 24, 2014  |  By Gary47a

 |  Version: PdfEdit995 12.2

Pros

This product is not for the faint of heart. What it is intended to do is not intuitively clear, but it does it well. Think of Mail Merge in the product from Redmond. It works, if you know what you are doing.

pdfedit is a swiss-army knife of features. Every time I needed to use one, there was the same learning curve I face for complex features (like my MS example above). It puts watermarks / letterhead backgrounds when I want to convert a letter to a letterhead document. It splits and combines PDF documents when you can't have everything you want in a single source file (such as merging spreadsheet, graphic and word processing source content into a single PDF - yes DDE / embedded objects sort-of-works, but it's a heavy overhead feature from Redmond that I hate to use.)

You usually have to do the tool 2 or 3 times to understand how it works. But you get what you want.

Cons

Miserable user doc, no examples showing how to do it. The links, bookmark and extract (split PDF into multiple files) features are extremely hard to use. The combine feature works extremely well, and it almost intuitive.

The UI is poor - there are 3 rows of tabs, and the dialog box doesn't resize. Most features depend on a couple of setup files which are hidden under an obscure location in c:\users\{my profile folder}, and how to use them is undocumented.

The links feature only works for external URLs, not internal bookmarked locations in your document, but this may be a limitation in how the Adobe PDF file layout works.

Summary

Good tool if you know how to use it, and have time to experiment.

"Installation Fails - requires previous version"

December 19, 2013  |  By RecklessRon1

 |  Version: PdfEdit995 12.2

Pros

None. I'll try another piece of software.

Cons

They give you an installation that will fail unless you already have the previous version installed. Then they give you the installation successful web page. No option to install the previous version is offered - at least none that you can find easily. I'm not hunting for it I'll just use a different piece of software, eh!

Summary

IMHO: If they can't get the installation right... don't waste your time - pick something else.

"BEWARE ADWARE"

April 12, 2013  |  By Wulfwynne

 |  Version: PdfEdit995 12.2

Pros

didn't get that far, busy uninstalling all the adware.

Cons

yeah. It comes with loads of adware and it doesn't use the traditional bullet options with "yes in stall extras" or "no thanks." The adware options look as if you're just accepting the agreement for the main software.

Summary

Stay away from this. You'll send up with tool bars, pop up ads, and 5 new programs you didn't sign up for to uninstall.
