Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Jun 2, 2014

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.
