PDF-XChange Viewer 'Free Version' is free for private and commercial use, provided it is not bundled with other software for financial gain. The Viewer as well contains extra features and functions that are unlocked when you purchase a license for PDF-XChange Viewer PRO. In FREE mode, many menu items will be marked with a special marker that indicates that the specific feature requires a PRO license to use without producing watermarks:
You can try any of the PRO features but, be very careful not to save your PDF if you don't want the watermarks to appear in the upper corners of each page of the document. Once a document is watermarked, there is no way to remove them so save a copy of the original PDF before trying the PRO features in an unlicensed Viewer.

The new FREE OCR feature rocks. I've been trying to OCR my pdf Cad drawings using other standalone OCR softwares but repeatedly failed especially when the size is bigger than A3 size.
Can you add batch processing so that the more repetitive tasks like printing, ocr etc is faster.
Thanks for a great product which has now permanently replaced Acrobat on my pc.

I've used PDF-XChange Viewer (Free) for the past three to four years. This is the only PDF Viewer product that I would think of using. It's solid, reliable and very easy to use. Today was the first time I really wanted to edit a PDF file and I could see that PDF-XChange Viewer's PRO features could do what I wanted. I had no hesistation in buying the PRO licence. Now, what was already a great product for me is now a fantastic product for me. I have no reservations in recommending this software; it enhances office productivity on your PC or on the move with the Portable version. GrahamG, Cambridge, UK
