OS X has some very cool native features for those who usually work with PDF files. It is possible, for example, to add a digital signature to a document, make some notes, save something and export files of other formats to PDF, among other things.
But if you are a person who is dealing with PDFs every day, a more specific, more complete tool for dealing with these tasks is a good idea. what comes in Wondershare PDFelement for Mac.
With it you can do all that is already possible natively. But in addition to these features, it has many more advanced ones. See some examples below:
You can edit the content of PDF files, which is completely different from taking notes or something like that. Just click on the “Edit” button, choose the font, size, color and start typing to add, edit and / or delete information in the desired file.
Editing, of course, is not limited to the text itself since you have the freedom to insert, crop, resize and delete images; add, delete and rearrange pages, in addition to inserting, deleting or updating watermarks in the document (options there on the right side of the image).
When printing or sharing the document, you can also optimize the file to facilitate uploading to online services or sending by email.
If on OS X you can save / export a file in / to PDF, in Wondershare PDFelement for Mac you have the ability to do the opposite.
Of course, you can also convert any file (any, since the app supports more than 300 file formats) to PDF, but the great asset of the app will be able to export a PDF file to other formats such as Word documents, Excel spreadsheets , PowerPoint presentations and other files such as TXT, EPUB, HTML, RTF, JPG, JPEG, PNG, TIFF, etc.
Another great resource that deserves mention is the possibility of combining files, regardless of their size (DOCX, PDF, etc.). So you generate a single coherent document.
Instead of, for example, sending an email with a Word file, an Excel spreadsheet and a PowerPoint presentation, you can take these three files, play them within Wondershare PDFelement for Mac and save everything as a single PDF. Or take a PDF file and an image that you also wanted to share, putting everything in the same document.
As I mentioned above, you can join several files into a single PDF. But you may also want to create a PDF from text in an image. For this, OCR technology (optical character recognition, or optical character recognition) fundamental!
The annoying part that this requires an additional $ 29.95 payment and an extra 400MB download. But by doing so, you can make use of this marvel of technology that recognizes almost any text in several languages (English, Korean, Italian, French, German, Russian, Czech, Turkish, Polish, Romanian, Ukrainian, Japanese, Greek, Croatian, Bulgarian , Portuguese and many more).
These tools are never perfect, but they break a great branch. In tests performed here, I was really impressed with the recognition hit rate!
You can add passwords to the files generated by Wondershare PDFelement for Mac, creating a simple but important layer of protection.
If you want, you can also configure the document so that people can only perform some tasks such as printing or filling out / signing forms.
Because of this strong integration with forms, Wondershare PDFelement for Mac also offers the option of creating them using interactive field tools such as space for texts, buttons, check boxes, cascading lists, etc.
If you want, you can also download several forms templates offered for free on the Wondershare website and modify them, leaving them the way you need them.
You have two ways to sign a file generated by Wondershare PDFelement for Mac: with a digital signature that uses industry standard encryption or by applying your own signature on the document.
In addition, you can still use predefined stamps of the app, such as "Revised", "Approved" and "Confidential".
Saving and printing a file
Who has never had the experience of having a document printed and it will look totally different from what you see on your computer screen? With Wondershare PDFelement for Mac this does not happen.
When saving or printing a document through the app, you keep 100% of the original layout and quality. His appearance will remain the same regardless of where you are viewing the file (computer, tablet or smartphone).
Ease of use
The app is fully translated into our language and very simple to use. When you open it, you can choose one of the four initial options offered or open one of the recent files, which are also listed on the home screen.
The single license for Wondershare PDFelement for Mac costs R $ 162.95; the license for up to 5 machines is R $ 1,097.95; j for up to 10 Macs / PCs costs R $ 2,072.95, which are more affordable than dollar licenses, which are priced at US $ 99.95, US $ 269.95 and US $ 509.95 respectively.
a great app, I would say it is indispensable for people who work hard with PDF files! My only criticism is due to the design. The application does not have that nice look, native to OS X. It is not ugly, but it could be much better if it had the look of apps that we are used to (buttons, alert boxes and other things native to the system).
Because of this, some boats end up staying in places we are not used to (the top menu of some of the images that illustrate this article shows this clearly).
a problem, but that in no way interferes with the potential and usefulness of the application for those working with PDFs. So it more than recommended!
