Techradar Editor's Rating

“Just about everything about PDFelement is beautiful – looks, functionality, features.”

Good replacement of Adobe Acrobat XI

“There are very few features that this program doesn’t have compared to Adobe. The only things I would still like to see are a) Rulers, grid etc. b) The ability to always have page navigation in view without having to click on the “Home” tab. c) A view of the size of your page when you hover your pointer over de down left corner of your page. A lot of features are nicer than the equivalent features in Adobe Acrobat. I expect this program to become better and better and wouldn’t be surprised if they became better than Adobe.”

PDFelement 6 Professional for Windows

“I like PDFelement 6 Professional for Windows because there are 2 reasons, at the first reason “Build forms from hundreds of ready-to-use templates from our built-in form library, so you don’t have to start from scratch.” and second reason “Capture and extract data from the hundreds or thousands of interactive forms filled by your clients into one Excel .CSV spreadsheet in seconds.”
