How to pick the best PDF editor

21 December, 2017 Software


Are you confused about how to choose a suitable PDF editor for your company or for you personally? When you search on Google "The best PDF editor", online edition, free edition, desktop edition and other such dazzling words usually appear in front of you. Adobe is indeed the industry's most recommended PDF editing software, but it's expensive and many of the features are such that you will likely never be able to use them ever and that's why it may not be a smart choice. Below, I will teach you how to pick the PDF editor that works best for you.


First of all, you need to figure out what you need from you PDF editor, but in general, the perfect PDF editing software should have the following ten features.


1.       Read


At present, a lot of documents are in PDF format, such as essays, e-books, contracts, etc. Many people use PDF software in order to have a better reading experience. A good software should let you choose a different reading mode, zoom in and out of the page, jump to a specific page and of course, you can also take screenshots, insert bookmarks, etc., which are good for the user's PDF reading experience.


2. Create


Still a considerable number of people prefer to use Word to write documents and then create a PDF file from it. Office currently has the ability to export from Word to PDF, but it is worth noting that this feature is only available in 2010 and above. So, having a professional PDF software will do more with less and you will be able to quickly create PDF files of various formats without breaking the source document format.


3. Convert

We need to pay attention to the conversion support format and conversion quality. A lot of software claims to be able to maintain one hundred percent of the same format conversion, but in fact, very few actually do. Therefore you must try the conversion process first before selecting the software.


4.       Edit


In fact, some of the top PDF editing features are now comparable to Word. For example, while using the following software, editing functions are complete and the operation is very smooth, giving users almost the illusion of using Office.


5. Comments


It is also important to comment on the PDF file. During the reading process, you will encounter some important points or areas that need to be modified. The annotation at this time is very important. As shown in the picture, PDF software gratifies you to do different kinds of annotations.



6. OCR


OCR helps you to identify scanned documents and images, as well as allowing conversion to editable text. As OCR technology is becoming more and more mature, with the implementation of the OCR, you can modify things that cannot be modified.



7. Form


If you need to fill out the form, then be sure to try PDF form recognition and fill function, because some software cannot fully identify everything that it needs in order to fill the form in. Good form function can help you identify, fill in and modify the form.



8. Signature and protection


If you need to sign PDF files, then pay attention to this feature. In addition, good PDF software can better encrypt your documents, so that no information leakage occurs.


9. Page


Page adjustment and management of PDF software is also a major function. You should be able to extract, insert, split, replace the page, delete pages and so on.


10. Output


After creating, editing and converting finished PDF files, you should also be able to print or share your documents with ease.


If you choose a software where all the above PDF software features are available, Congratulations! You found the perfect PDF editing software. Next, you have to compare the user experience. Interface UI design, smooth operation, the user's habits and other features that greatly affect the user experience and work efficiency. As you can see from this software, the interface UI design is easy to understand, you do not need to invest too much time learning how to use everything, It's as easy as using office, because no matter from the color, button and function switch looks like, all fit the habit of most users using Office. Once you use it, you will appreciate the fluidity and the speed.



Finally, consider your budget, because everyone likes a cost-effective option. If software is meeting your functional needs and the price is appropriate, then quickly buy it! All screenshots of this article come from PDFelement 6 Pro, which you can also download for as free trial. It's $59.95 for the base edition and $99.95 for the pro edition.
