    Ich bin Software-Trainer in Hamburg (www.dlsos.de) und liefere PDF unter anderem als Unterrichtsbegleitmaterial aus. Mit diesem Tool produziere ich schnell, gut und kostengünstig. Außerdem empfehle ich den Editor für Büroumgebungen.

    This is great software. It's good not only because of its performance in terms of size and speed, it's also excellent because of its humane design, friendliness, and offer. You will know what I mean after giving yourself an opportunity to try it.

    PDF-XChange Lite is one of the reason I do not switch to Mac. I use it that much. I don't understand paying upwards to 100s of dollars for Adobe when this is so powerful and basically provide the same features (when you are a small business owner).
