Summary: Although I have a copy of Adobe Acrobat, I switched to this PDF program for its simplicity, speed, minimal use of computer resources and ease of use. Having to deactivate and reactivate Acrobat is a pain. This software is easily to activate and does not need to be deactivated.
Pros: Inexpensive PDF viewer/printer. Has most of the features of Adobe Acrobat at a fraction of the price. Uses minimal resources, it's fast, and has no Macrovision background protection like Acrobat. Very reasonably priced when on sale.
Cons: I agree with the other reviewers that it doesn't do all that Acrobat does as easy as Acrobat does it. You have to put in a little effort to work with this software.
Pros: Comes in a nice box. The flipping page idea is great and the only thing worth buying this software for... and then ONLY if you use it on 8.5" x 11" docs,
Cons: How many times have you pulled up a page from a PDF document and wanted to take a quick screen shot of it with the Microsoft Snipping Tool, that is easy with Adobe but with Corel PDF it is impossible as Corel will make images disappear to prevent you from "snipping" an image out of their propriet...
Summary: Other than the decent customer service. I wouldn't give them 5 bucks for it!!! The cd key should not have been bad!!! Sounded like Corel changed the format after the fact!! No wonder it gets sorry reviews!!!
Pros: Customer Service Good Fast Shipping
Cons: Prepare to spend 1-3 days getting the software activated!! Key NO GOOD on package!! Spent 3 days in emails to get straightened out. Pics of box, and CD required. So far the software itself is NOT worth the price paid!
Summary: As a loyal Nitro Pro user for many years, I have quickly learned to use this software and really like the interface. The price is much better as well.
Pros: Assembly view lets you take word docs, pdf files, and pile all of them together, then re-arrange as needed. Can even mix portrait and landscape together (or you can rotate the pages), which just happened to be exactly what I needed.
Cons: in one of my pdf files I opened to do some text editing and the only problem was that the text within pdf fusion was showing a little fuzzy. after I re-saved the PDF and opened with acrobat reader, it was fine.
Summary: to the person that complained about not being able to delete a page, you have to be in "assembly mode" in order to do that.
Pros: I am so in love with this software. Rock solid, does not crash, does exactly what I want it to do, so glad I ended up with it. Corel support said I can load it on up to 3 of my personal machines, so long as it is only running on one PC at a time.
Cons: if you open a PDF in assembly mode and you delete a page, you can not save it with the same file name, file name has to be changed.
Summary: I have looked for an alternative to Adobe Acrobat to work with .pdf forms. I have been using a freeware version of a German software which actually works quite good. I was going to purchase the full version of that software when I saw Corel PDF Fusion go on sale for less money and thought I would...
Pros: -Inexpensive compared to Adobe Acrobat full version. -Can open some .pdf documents.
Cons: - Does not work as well as some free software packages for reading and converting Word Documents. - Changes formatting on MS Word Documents such that they neither display or print correctly. - Formatting gets messed up on multi-page documents. - Does not function correctly with many linked forms ...
Summary: Data entry ain't my forte, but my MicroSoft Works is getting old in the tooth and even though I remember how to use Access very well I'm not shelling out large coin for Microsoft Office Pro (on-line)!!!
Pros: I have my assistant edit my work with it, rather than pay a lot so they can open different files just to clean up my work.
Cons: Would not install on a Windows 8 Pro. Hangs 2/3 of the way thru. No activity in Task Manger. Waited 20 minutes on a core i7 with 16GB of Ram and an SSD for OS and Programs. This PC is overclocked to 4.7GHz and boots in 18 seconds so 20 minutes is a long time. Thankfully I only paid $20 for this.
