I have been using PDF element for over a year now. I happened upon a bill from Adobe, I was paying by the month. It is shocking to me looking back upon it how much it cost me to be enslaved by a computer program that is treated as a profession by many of its users. I saw it time and again: that caused Adobe's software to be a functional silo and bottleneck. Sometimes, the imagined complexity of .pdf was used by the worker in attempts to gain special treatment. I am so very happy...delighted...with my PDF Element purchase that cost me just a few months of 'brand x'. Even if you or your organization use Adobe... buy PDF Element also. It is so nice to know you can easily and in an instant create or edit .pdf.... it is a sense of relief and power all in one. Be aware: there is a lot of free and paid .pdf software. None of the free stuff is very functional and a lot of the paid stuff is weak. PDF Element is robust and complete...a joy to use. As a note: PDF Element has OCR but regardless of software I find it easier to use a free online OCR. This is not spam paid for by Wondershare. I am a real purchaser who actually used the software frequently for over a year now.
