Summary: After using "free" PDF converters and trying to avoid the high cost of Adobe products, this is just what I needed. I receive PDF edits from a publishing company and needed software like this. Bite the bullet and pay for this instead of trying to get by with a "free" version. It's been worth the modest cost to me.
Pros: Great for PDF downloading, editing, and interfacing with Word 2010.
Cons: Using "presentation view," I can't use a search feature (control F). There must be a reason, so I'm not saying that this is a con, it's just a fact, and it annoys me. It takes another keystroke to revert to a "view" that you can use the cntrl F to search for a word or phase. Not a big deal, but it's the only thing that bugs me.
Pros: This software performs as described in Corel's video. Though not openly advertised as such, it is now being incorporated into newer versions of many existing Corel products, like WordPerfect. In addition to being a stand alone product, PDF Fusion is also an add-in for MS Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. I have used it primarily to combine several MS Word-generated pdf's (save as pdf) into a single pdf file. So, I'm not a power-user. The text editing and manipulation featu...
Summary: During the install prcess, the install asks for the serial number to access the advanced features. I don't know what advanced features Corel means. I would guess that without the serial number all you end up installing is a pdf reader only, but that is just a guess.
Pros: Typical Corel product - very intiutive, smooth install
Cons: Not as feature rich as Adobe 9.0 Pro which I use at work.
Summary: I had no issues with the install on a Win7 64bit system. Full installation is almost 200mb so disable your internet connection and then shut down the malware, spyware, antivirus and other program before installing and it should install fine (always a good practice to turn off such programs when doing an install).
Pros: Exactly what I was looking for to assemble documents from multiple authors working on a project. Fusion is similar to Picasa - load the files you want then drag and drop onto a line. Reorder any way you like to produce the final copy. I put doc, docx, pdf, jpg, and wpd formats all into the same document - and pasted only the pages I wanted.
Cons: Editing is a bit cumbersome if you want to overwrite text but this is not a full pdf editor. Edit the original or output to doc format if you want to do significant edits.
