This is BY FAR the best PDF manipulation program out there. Easy to use, it is totally versatile. I am able to manipulate documents as if I was in ADOBE. It is also fantastic for filling out PDF forms. The Photo option is GENIUS!

Thank you!

Great software, and I have tried a few others over the years. Lots of features, and one of a few that allow manipulating pages within the document through thumbnail drag-and-drop. Loads very fast, renders the thumbnails fast, too. OCR support a bonus, albeit a bit slow.

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.
