MobiSystems PDF Extra Ultimate - Instant Download for Windows (1 User)
Even the logo is sposed to, I think, look like the Adobe one, but not quite. See what I mean? Which is, to me, intentionally misleading...not a thing I'm fond of.That said! It's not a bad piece of software! It offers most of the functionality of Adobe, but at a fraction of the cost! Last I looked (just now), an Adobe PDF Pro 1 year license runs about twice what this lifetime license does. And as far as I can tell, does all the stuff Adobe does.I do recommend it, but wish they didn't seem like they were trying to give anyone the idea that this is Adobe software. It's one of those where they never explicitly say anything that is incorrect, but rather let you mislead yourself. Great PDF tool besides that tho!
I like that is a lifetime license. And it's good value for money!
The “PDF Extra 2021” for Windows Professional PDF editor from MobiSystems is a very handy third-party pdf writer software that rivals the likes of Adobe.When you order the software what you get is a simple flexible card, roughly the size of three credit cards, which provides the activation key for you to go onto the pdfextra website and download the software from. This took approximately 1 minute, and then I was literally up and running with being able to edit pdf’s.To test out the versatility of the software and its ease of use, I downloaded a random set of statutory accounts from Companies House and just had a play with the data in them (as I said, just for testing, as the stats on CH are scanned in, so can be trickier for pdf editors to cope with).The PDF Extra software was very easy to get to grips with, with its layout similar to a Microsoft Windows application in many ways. Inserting text was a simple case of going to “Insert” along the drop down menus at the top, and then selecting “Text”. You can also easily insert picture, snip and move things, resize, amend and adjust stuff, and generally do all the editing you’d want to do.You can also tick boxes and sign documents with a signature stored on your hard drive.For what I need this for it’s just the ticket. And with this software you get a lifetime licence for one PC (along with 5GB of cloud storage). So a one-off payment and you’re set for life (unless you change your PC – which is likely at some point, if you’re honest).
A give it a thumbs up.However, one feature seems to be missing or I have missed it in the application.For me, I am unable to highlight text in a document and insert a hyperlink in the highlighted text.This is something that I used a lot with Adobe.
Having been a user of another well-known PDF creator/editing software for many years, I was very interested to see how this software compared - especially as it offers a lifetime license, rather than a monthly paid subscription charge (which proves expensive after many years).I can honestly say that so far, this PDF Extra software is just as good as the other software I have been using. It certainly has all of the functionality that I use regularly and undertakes it well.Easy to download, install and register with the code on the back of the supplied card, the interface is easy and straightforward to use, as well as being intuitive - especially easy if you are used to other software of this nature.To name but a few of the functions the software offers and ones I use regularly, are editing PDF documents. This software allows you to do this quickly and easily with the range of editing tools. Highlighting, commenting and moving images can all be done easily.One of the first things I tried was creating a PDF from another document and removing certain pages and reordering others. I do this quite regularly. Adding signature and passwording, as well as watermarking the documents are all possible. There is also the option to fill and sign forms (I haven't tried this function properly as yet, but I will do).This software also offers settings for different read modes (page flips etc.) and also PDF Extra now appears as a "print to" option from within other applications such as Word etc.This software also comes with 5GB cloud storage space for documents/files on Mobidrive, where other cloud storage can also be linked to (Dropbox, One Drive etc.)I can genuinely say that this software is just as good as my previous (and very expensive software), yet still has all the functionality. I will definitely be using PDF Extra from now on and it will save me a fortune. I cannot over emphasise how impressed I am with this and would not hesitate in recommending it to others.
