1 out of 5 eggsUseless software

Pros: None

Cons: Using this software to fill a PDF form is an exercise in frustration. The free Nitro PDF Reader does a way better job.

Other Thoughts: I tried to fill an application which was in PDF format. Nuance would not let me position the cursor in the line in which I wanted to type. Then I noticed that at the end of previous line, there was a CR/LF character (essentially an ENTER key). I had to move that to the next line (by positioning the cursor at the character and press ENTER key). Then I could type on the next line. The typing became impossible when there were several of these characters because of frames. The cursor just would not move to the next line. I gave up in frustration. Nitro PDF reader allows me to type wherever I want.

The second use I wanted to have was to combine PDF files to a single PDF. The PDF files had a combination of scanned pages. The pages printed in landscape were also scanned as portrait and that is how I wanted to keep them. After joining the files, Nuance converted the landscape pages to portrait thus messing the layout completely. I did uncheck the option to disallow automatic re-orientation but it still did it. I finally printed the documents to Nitro PDF reader PDF printer and appended the files together. No issues.

The third thing I wanted to do was insert scanned signature. Nuance does not have a way to manage signatures, Nitro PDF reader has this feature.

When editing large documents (I was working on a 28 page PDF, 488k) and software kept becoming unresponsive. My laptop is quad core processor with hyperthreading, 8 GB memory and SSD drive.

I had high hopes from this software but I was disappointed.

5 out of 5 eggsNUANCE Works!

Pros: Cheaper than Acrobat, Saves all my files to PDY instead of printing/ Loads as though it was another printer device except it saves the file as a PDF file. Editable!

Cons: Easy to save files but editing files tends to be tedious. Need to learn.

Other Thoughts: Used for over 5 years and it is much cheaper than Adobe Acrobat! Buying another for my laptop!

1 out of 5 eggsWARNING

Pros: It's cheaper then Adobe Acrobat

Cons: Two months after owning this software I formatted my PC. When I attempted to download and reinstall this software I found out that Nuance charges nearly 1/10 of this software cost for a "service" that allow customers to download their software up to 2 years after purchase. Customer service was not able to help me either. There are better alternatives than Nuance.

4 out of 5 eggs~10 copies: no major issues

Pros: * Software is the best I've come across for OCR detection on PDFs and scans. It can pick out most, if not all, the text from a medium-quality fax.
* Software allows for basic PDF editing, as well as adding-removing pages + using MRC to shrink PDF sizes.

Cons: * Activation mechanism is vague, but haven't run into the issues the other folks have.
* Some of the commands overlap / compete with each other.
* 64-bit installer support, but software may still run as 32-bit.

Other Thoughts: Definitely useful for handling small-to-medium volumes of PDF processing. Probably need a full-fledged document system to handle server and volume loads.

1 out of 5 eggsUsed to be good, not any more

Pros: Fast and easy PDF file editing, creating and printing.
Much more simple interface than Adobe Acrobat.
Cheaper than Adobe Acrobat

Cons: Very buggy compared to older versions.
Cloud service is useless, and you can't remove it even if you opt out.
Much slower than version 7
More expensive than 7 and before

Other Thoughts: I've used PDF Converter since version 4. It was a bit buggy back then, but they improved. That is they used to improve. Version 8 has more problems than I've seen in a while. I'm also dismayed at the price increase. It's almost double the cost it used to be. At least it's still cheaper than Acrobat. But, due to the bugs and issues, I'm not sure it's worth it any more.

1 out of 5 eggsget something else

Pros: Allowed me to make pdfs

Cons: Another case of copy protection gone berserk. It required me to go through the entire "activation" process every time I opened up the program. Going to their "support" was of no use. I stopped using it, wasted my money.

2 out of 5 eggs 7 & 8 are terrible

Pros: Not as expensive as Adobe Standard 9 & does eventually work

Cons: I got version 7 to use on a Win 7 Pro i7 1.8ghz 8gb, & it was slow & often crashed. Upgraded to PDF Converter Professional 8 & it crashed less often & is a slight bit faster.

Other Thoughts: Nuance should spend some money to have this app redone from the core up. It's positives include updating PDF with text in different fonts & sizes that adobe did not support- at least in my version & a couple of others I've seen.

5 out of 5 eggsMuch Improved

Pros: This program is very easy to use and does everything it claims. It is also more refined and easier then Convertor Pro 7 was and way easier then the full version of Acrobat I have on my computer at work. Seems to accurately convert PDFs to MS Word and Excel.
I use it mostly to edit PDFs and it is very simple to use for that.

Cons: non yet

1 out of 5 eggsAbsolute junk - still!

Pros: Basically functional as described

Cons: Still has almost all the flaws of version 7 - even after years to fix them!

Other Thoughts: I've suffered through Nuance's blundering for far too long - both with v7 and v8.

Activation issues are simply unacceptable. A notebook computer with an external drive runs through the number of changes Nuance considers 'acceptable' within months. They have NEVER addressed the problem of their dialog window popping under (rather than in front of) the application window. They have ignored the fact that their tool cannot print from mainstream applications like Visio, even when provided with both the source files and samples of output. They do everything they can to put off solving a problem until you are out of free support and must pay for each message to them.

Bottom line - BUY SOMETHING ELSE. If your needs are straightforward, get CutePDF. If you need sophistication, bite the bullet and buy from Adobe.

DON'T support a company that produces junk like this, and then won't support it professionally. I say this with more than 30 years in IT.
