Qoppa PDF Studio Reviews

I’ve been using PDF Studio since version 6.62. Back then, years ago, it was IMHO the best of the many PDF editors on the market (including Acrobat-by a mile!), although it did have a few head- scratching shortcomings, including the absence of an undo function (!?) and occasional crashes when working with multiple PDF files simultaneously. These and other glitches seem to have been fully corrected, however, by a series of updates through version 12 and, most recently, to PDF Studio 2018. In addition, new functionalities and design improvements, including a totally revised navigation ribbon, have made working with the software faster and more intuitive.
My main use of PDF Studio over the years has been in studying, annotating and playing classical piano music from pdf keyboard manuscripts. The software lets me:

• remove and modify manuscripts’ piano fingerings to suit my hand size and interpretation of the music,

• highlight manuscript areas that I need to focus on by overlaying them with highly transparent rectangles of pale color,

• attach audio files to the pdf manuscripts of the music I am playing so I can hear how various performers interpret the music while I am studying and playing it,

• insert bookmarks into the manuscripts to enable navigation through compositions’ sections,

• add notes directly on pdf manuscripts about my interpretation and performance of the music,

• use PDF Studio’s many other powerful features to enhance my piano studies and playing.

For years I’ve been content to use my old version 6.62, which still remains among the best PDF editors available. But at this point it’s clear to me that PDF Studio 2018 is far and away the most flexible and powerful tool for building highly creative PDF editing applications that can enhance whatever kinds of computer work one undertakes.

Qoppa PDF Studio is a best pdf editor suite for Linux. I tried few other opensource and paid softwares , all are good for reading pdf files but PDF studio stands out as best pdf editor for linux. The Premier pdf apps on windows and mac are not available for Linux platform. Thanks to Qoppa Team for supporting Linux Platform considering the needs of users. The User interface looks similar to most windows apps and it as robust performance in reading and editing mode.
The OCR is best among all other apps for linux.

So far in my use of Qoppa PDF Studio I have been very impressed with the level of editing that is possible with a program that is not Adobe! This program is incredibly useful and I look forward to using it more.

Using PDF Studio on Ubuntu Linux. Love the editing features and smooth interface.
The only alternative that does not destroy the existing formatting and cleanly edits the documents.

I have been using Adobe Acrobat Professional for many years. I have been frustrated with their current offerings and have been looking for an alternative. PDF Studio 12 Pro is an awesome alternative to Acrobat. In fact, I believe it is much better and more user friendly. It is an easy conversion to implement.

A must have for Linux

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.

I have been using Windows and Mac computer for over 20 years and Adobe Acrobat was my PDF editor of choice for years. Recently I have moved over to Linux Mint and they don't support Adobe Acrobat. I was looking around and found PDF Studio Pro and to my surprise they were are a perfect fit to all of my PDF editing needs. I love the idea I have to pay only one time 129.00 and I can install it onto 2 computers. This works out perfectly for me. After using PDF Studio Pro now for some time I love it. I will never go back to Adobe Acrobat. PDF Studio is so easy to use and does much more that Adobe Acrobat ever did for me.

I was looking for a pdf editor in Linux and that's not an easy task. I used Windows editors that literally let you do whatever you want and needed similar tools for Linux.
Hopefully, I found Pdf Studio Pro from Qoppa that fullfits all my requirements.
You will need no more tools, eventhough you're a professional in this subjects.
Developers gives a really good support answering emails really fast.
Good work Qoppa's workteam

Great for estimating construction jobs on Linux. It's easier to use than Adobe Acrobat and has lots of useful features for measurements, highlighting and keeping count of networking drops. I can edit anything on the pages as well. I use this every day for my job and am very happy with the product.
