PDF-XChange Pro is a swift tool for converting files to PDF, though it takes an unusual path to get its results. Regardless, the program offers enough fantastic options to make up for its design flaws.

The program confused us with its interface. We've tested many PDF converters, but had never dealt with one featuring a file tree offering just Microsoft Word, Excel, and Internet Explorer logos. After briefly reading the instructional Help file and performing some experiments, we realized that drop down menu is how you seek out a file to convert. We would have preferred searching through our hard drive, but this method wasn't difficult once we understood it. Fortunately, the program quickly made a complete design recovery. While the file we chose was opened, there were three PDF icons in the corner encouraging us to Convert to PDF, Convert and e-mail, and arrange options. Conversion functions worked smoothly, maintaining all data, though it left PDF-XChange watermarks. The Options icon provided a slew of excellent features that made us forget the poor initial interface. Here we could compress the converted file into something smaller, add our own watermark, and even password-protect the file. While the interface was a little klutzy, the program's functions and features redeemed PDF-XChange Pro.

PDF-XChange Pro places a watermark on all converted files during its trial. It comes as a compressed file and leaves behind folders after uninstall. Since its functions and options outshine its poor interface, we recommend this program.
