Editors' review

Wondershare PDF Editor allows modifications to text, graphics, watermarks, digital signatures, and pretty much any attribute of a PDF document. It performs conversions between PDFs and hundreds of other file types, including popular Microsoft Office files.

Pros

Extensive editing: Wondershare PDF Editor looks and feels like a proper editor, with straightforward ribbon-type menus and access to any element for modification, deletion, or new entry. We particularly enjoyed editing embedded graphics and being able to manage file pages in every detail.

File conversion quality: Very good work has been done to ensure faithful conversions between different file types. We successfully converted PDF embedded tables into Excel spreadsheets to take advantage of the latter's calculation prowess.

Document management: Watermarks, digital signatures, and document restriction control from a single summary menu all attest to a powerful editor, good for any level of personal or corporate work.

Cons

Lack of PDF file creation: For such a powerful app, it's a pity that PDF file creation is omitted. This single feature would make Wondershare's app a truly one-stop solution for PDF documents.

Separate OCR plugin: In typical freeware marketing fashion, OCR functionality comes in a separate paid plug-in and is not even included in the editor's paid version.

Bottom Line

Wondershare PDF Editor makes a favorable impression, being a thoughtfully designed and very capable PDF editor. It interfaces accurately with many popular file types and comes with all the file management features required for corporate use. The purchasing price of $59.95 puts it in a very competitive market position.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Wondershare PDF Editor 3.6.3.

    "Beware of the Malware"

    June 27, 2014   |   By Reviewer5687

    Version: Wondershare PDF Editor 2.0.0

    Pros

    Scamy malware when you try to uninstall. Beware.Initially I was very impressed with the program and planned to purchase it until I attempted to print something I had been working on for hours. There was a huge watermark on the document. Because I needed the document before I could arrange to pay for it, I tried to save it. The program would not allow me to save it, so I essentially lost my work. I attempted to uninstall it, and it bugged my entire computer! I received a prompt that not all of the components could be removed. It wiped out my printing account codes, and now I can't even do my work in other programs. I tried to put in a web-based help ticket at my own business, and I could not upload a screenshot!!! I received an error message saying there was an invalid character, and the file path for the document was c:\wondershare.myfilename This program totally hijacked my system. Needless to say, I will NOT be purchasing this.

    Cons

    If I could give this product negative stars, I would do so. Run away fast.

    "Trial version of PDF Editor is a waste of time"

    April 18, 2014   |   By KelleeRassau

    Version: Wondershare PDF Editor 3.6.2

    Pros

    Once I figured out the basic functions of this program, it worked pretty well for general PDF editing.

    Cons

    After I spent two hours working on editing text in a PDF file to be imported into an Adobe InDesign layout, the trial version of the software planted a huge Wondershare watermark logo on my PDF file, rendering it unusable for my project. I was a waste of two hours, and untold personal energy.

    Summary

    The trial version of Wondershare PDF Editor can perform basic functions, but it isn't anything to write home about. It's definitely not worth paying the $70 registration fee to remove watermarks from edited PDF files.

    "Amazing PDF Editor"

    March 27, 2014   |   By Floorerty

    Version: Wondershare PDF Editor 3.6

    Pros

    This satisfies a problem I have had for some time, the need to be able to redact a block of text, without having to pay $350 to Adobe. Previously I emailed my .pdf to work where I have Adobe Acrobat Pro provided by my employer. Now I can split my healthcare EOB's 1 claim per file at home, so the filename encodes each claim with date, doctor etc.

    Cons

    Very good!!

    Summary

    I can't believe that it can solve everything what you've been looking for.... So i really thankful to you Wondershare you made my days...

    "WONDERSHARE 30 DAY REFUND POLICY IS A SCAM!!!!!"

    September 25, 2013   |   By Markowheaton

    Version: Wondershare PDF Editor 3.2.0

    Pros

    I tried using the software to convert a pdf back to a powerpoint file to edit, and every time the system started converting it and I received a time out error. I was only converting a 10 page document. I tried repeatedly and it never converted it.

    When I requested a refund they asked to try it again, so I did and the product still timed out. I asked for a refund again and they stated that they will NOT issue a refund until they understand technically what is going on with this issue. Then they say if they can fix the technical issue then I am NOT ENTITLED to a refund per their fine print. Apparently they only offer a 30 Day refund to those customers whose techncial issue they CANNOT fix. It has nothing to do with if you are HAPPY or NOT as they represent when buying the product. Had I known this I would not have even considered trying it.

    WOW....GREAT REFUND POLICY THAT IS. DO NOT FALL PREY TO THIS SCAM!!!

    Cons
