Editors' Review

Solid Converter promises users one of the easiest programs for PDF conversion on the market. With its flashy design and basic flow, the designers have found a good balance with this excellent program.

The program has an interface that is a little crowded, but still manages to function well. Icons are large and cartoonish across the blue-and-white display, and are broken into four sections. The Getting Started section provides four icons for converting and modifying PDFs. There is a News box next to it. At the bottom of the screen is the Learning Center, with step-by-step tutorials for all processes. Finally, running along the right side is the Command Center that shows users what file they are converting and where it will end up.

Operating the program is fairly intuitive and the tutorials are intuitive, should you need them. We were pleased with the simplicity of selecting files and how little we had to do to convert them to PDF. Other programs we have tested make this step overly complicated, but Solid Converter held our hand where we needed it and gave us freedom where it was necessary. Because of striking this excellent balance, we highly recommend this 15-day trial for all your PDF conversion needs.
