Great product! I used Adobe Reader long years, but it became to unsecure and took too many system resources. I tested other competitiors like FoxIt, but it was not so fine-tuned and comfortable like yours. Also tested some freeware-PDF-writer, but their results were not so perfect like the files made by PDF-XChange! :-) Really good!
Here is a program that just works. No inconvenient updates and upgrades every few days.
This is one of the first programs I install when setting up a new computer.
It is worth every penny, and has allowed me to banish Adobe from my computer.
I just downloaded and started working with PDF XChange Viewer Pro yesterday, so I'm giving it 4 starts instead of 5 in case I find something later. Given that, here's my thoughts so far: I really like this program. I got the Pro so I can edit pdf's. I would get Adobe if they weren't so bloated and weren't so expensive. It also bothers me that they charge so much, reminds me of the arrogance of Microsoft. I looked around a year or so ago, and got Nitro pdf since it was cheaper than Adobe. I was disappointed, as it did not have so many editing tools (no clouding, arrows, etc) and I had problems with one crash and another issue. Disappointed that my $99 was basically wasted at that point. So I gave up until this weekend, when I found out about PDF Xchange. The tools for editing are great (lines, arrows, highlight, circles, boxes, text boxes, delete and add pages, digital signature, etc). I would like to have the ability to make the signature smaller, but I was able to make things work as is. The documents were clear, the editing stuff worked well (even removing), and the program was fast. Overall, a great experience. Now I'm able to do some forms all on computer rather than printing out, marking up, scanning, etc). I also liked the low price. Nice to see a company putting out a great product at a fair price. Score one for the little guys.
The final straw with Adobe Acrobat was looking, at length as usual due to their complicated user interface and unhelpful help site, for a way to resize font in text boxes and callouts. Finally, I searched the Internet, only to find . . . Adobe Acrobat does not even provide this capability!
That was it. A V-8 moment occurred, without the head-slapping: Why the heck did I abandon PDF XChange 4 Pro for this bloated, pretentious piece of junk from Adobe?
I uninstalled Adobe Acrobat (saving myself 4GB of hard drive space in the bargain) and reinstalled PDF XChange 4 Pro. The first thing I noticed were the text box and callout tools and, lo and behold, the drop down menus for selecting text fonts and sizes. No hunting, no perplexity, no frustration.
This and so many other things are more convenient, better presented and documented, and just plain easier to do in PDF XChange 4 Pro. V-8 moment! This time, including head-slap. Ouch!
Best pdf software I have ever owned and I have owned many!
