Very good! Even the free version has enough functionalities that can serve my purpose. One especially useful feature is the two column view, i.e. you can view two different pages side-by-side. Besides, PDF-XChange Editor doesn't take up much space and is much cheaper than Phantom PDF and Adobe Acrobat.

The best software for PDF documents

about PDF-XChange Editor · · Helpful Not helpful 4 Helpful Report as spam

That PDF-XChange Editor is exactly great one if you are looking for the smartest, fastest, do-everything-you-need software for your different kind of works with documents (scanning, creating, editing, even signing and filling forms). It is excellent as well as for teachers/students, and for accountants/sale managers, and for architectures/engineers. Editor includes the same features as Adobe has, some of them are more detailed, more flexible in use. Also, there is the portable version.

I expected better. Compared to the 'Viewer' versions, there is a lot of new functionality, especially for content editing, but the interface got messier. Confusingly in the extreme, not all available functions are displayed in the menus from the outset. To see what is available and make it appear in the menu, you have to follow a counter-intuitive and illogical procedure: right-click a toolbar, select 'Customize Toolbars' from context menu, go to the 'Commands' tab to see all the functions for each menu, and it's from there that you can drag the individual items to the menus of your choice. (It took me a long while to figure out there was a 'Show/Hide Gaps Between Pages' option for the View menu.) It is also here that hotkeys can be created for any function. Except some functions disappeared without a trace. There is no 'Keep Current Pages View' option anymore for the full screen, so the double page view turns into single page every time you make the switch. Makes no sense at all. You can use a hotkey to reset the page view to double, but it's annoying having to do that every time, especially that the older, 'inferior' version worked smoothly in this respect. Another thing that I consider an unwelcome development is the introduction of the ribbon interface starting from version 7. It takes up an enormous screen space, without much real gain, and makes it all look like a Microsoft product.

Get it installed and get down to business

I was on a frantic search today to find some software that would let me customize a PDF form I downloaded with my company's logo and a few other touches.

PDF XChange Editor was the clear winner in a sea of crap. The free edition let me make the urgent edits and save the document. Winning!

Will probably end up springing for the paid version in place of bloated,costly, and vulnerability ridden Adobe Acrobat products.

Fast, with tons of customization options, allows side-by-side browsing, fully compatible with almost every file I want to open. Fully localized.

'Editor' consume more memory and significantly slower than the older PDF-XChange Viewer & SumatraPDF.
The developer should address this in future releases.

The upgrade from v6 to V7 will ruin all the interface customizations that made it great. Now, this program sucks. A better option would be FOxit Viewer, or something else.

It is amazing to see PDF-XChange Editor doing tasks easily at low cost that most people expect it to be done only by an expensive software like Acrobat.

It has the best editing options of any pdf-editor on linux (runs great with wine)

It is a fast viewer helpful e.g. by giving a lot layout alternatives while printing. Sadly, no open source project. Thanx!

I wrote another review on PDF viewer, but I'm starting to like it enough that I'd pay for the more advanced features.

I have lots of cheat sheets PDF for webdevelopment that I downloaded from the web,I dumped it all in one folder. I just want to look at all the PDF's and annotate them / save the new version to my PC.

Here's the easy way of doing it

enter image description here

  1. select a bunch of pdfs
  2. right click > open in pdf xchange
  3. dump edits save into the corresponding dropbox folder

Tried using sumatra and some other PDF editors but I like xchange for multitab previewing.

Also see other preview on Small PDF-XChange Viewer iconPDF-XChange Viewer i wrote about PDF image thumbnail preview using directoryopus

I am a total convert from acrobat adobe, which is a vanilla turtle (as in lagging and featureless) compared to this. I had no idea there can be so many useful features riding that vanilla turtle.

I'm very happy with this software. I've used Tracker Software programs over the years but the ability to manipulate text, edit document, view 3D, secure content or other is brilliant. In short, here is everything I need. PDF-XChange Editor is working amazing fast and clear. Really number 1 on my desk. Highly recommend it!
