PDF Studio Reviews

Bye bye Adobe Acrobat, hello PDF Studio!!

about PDF Studio · · Helpful Not helpful

When I'm writing this, I'm at the happy end of a serious searching "quest".

A friend of a mine had his copy of Adobe Acrobat and showed the possibilities to link PDF documents in the blink of an eye (even links from one PDF it's page, to another PDF it's page), to make his old books come alive digital via the OCR function and so on.

Well, in my full believe it would help me to improve my study I googled the Adobe website. And then my jaws dropped.
Adobe Acrobat is so expensive!! I didn't want to pay this much!!

So I searched and searched to find an alternative on my mac, who could handle PDF very well, who had this important link function and who was OCR capable....

After almost giving up I found this PDF Studio Version 11. The concept is very good, simple and straight forward. It gives you unbelievable functions at an unbeatable price!!

All you Mac users, don't look any further, this is it, the perfect tool for a very good price.

Bye bye Adobe Acrobat, hello PDF Studio!!

A must have for Linux

about PDF Studio and PDF-XChange Viewer · · Helpful Not helpful

I was happy with the editing abilities since version 8. Running on Ubuntu Mate 16.10 I print plans very often to wide plotters and often need to print several small detail sheets per page. Before version 11 I had a lot of problems printing, to the point that I couldn't print a standard 8.5 x 11 on my HP Officejet 8600 Pro without major scaling issues. To the point that I had to use adobe reader 9 to print any PDFs. Version 11 has been a much-needed update for the Linux community. Great job adding requested features.

Also, this software isn't cheap, but It is an excellent set of tools for anyone running Linux in a business that requires lots of printing. I've tried Foxit Reader, Master PDF editor, qpdfview (which I use as default viewer because of its excellent speed with large documents) and this really is the only product that is complete, actively developed, and offers much better than expected customer support.

On windows I use PDF-x-Change Pro and recommend it to anyone using windows, Although PDF Studio may now be worthy competition.

PDF Studio 10 for a MAC user

I was looking for a good tool to view/ edit and markup PDF's on my MacBook. This product does everything that I was looking for, the measurement tool is easy to calibrate and allows me to quickly review drawings and add comments.

I would recommend this and indeed already have to some workmates.

I use it for markups of drawings and the tools are more than sufficient.

Yes there are watermarks on the free trial version but then it is a trial so its to be expected.

Out of the various products I have tried on the Mac this is the best one and most in line with what I used to use on my PC.

Check it out if you fancy giving it a go, the free version gives you a good idea of what it will offer. http://www.qoppa.com/pdfstudio/

Free version has gigantic water marks.

The huge opaque water marks diagonally across each page makes it quite unusable even for private use. So you have to buy one.

Info for linux users only:

I have been hunting around for a free linux pdf editor that can produce 'permanent' bookmarks, comments and annotations and I am shocked that its so difficult to find one. In windows there are so many (pdf xchange viewer).

jpdfbookmarks can add bookmarks but not anything else.

okular, one of the best readers cannot do permanent annotations, bookmarks, etc. The ones it adds are stored in its settings. so when we send the file to someone, they won't get it.

If someone finally finds one, please please tell me. :-).............
