If you are a Mac user and if you manage PDF files quite often, you should definitely be on a lookout for a full PDF suite that can offer many features so that you don't have to use other programs. Let's see how the full version of PDF Reader Pro manages to satisfy users' basic needs.
The design of the app is the same as the design of the Lite version and it definitely looks great. The app's features can be accessed from the button bar at the top of the window. Some of the most useful options are available from the center of the window until you open a PDF file.
There is a built-in converter to and from PDF, Word, HTML, Text, JPEG, Excel, etc. You can add or create watermarks, backgrounds, header/footer, page numbers, etc. There is a PDF editor that can be used to edit a PDF file without affecting its formatting. The flow of your document can also be changed by merging different files, changing the order of the pages, and adding/removing pages however you want.
One of the most awesome features is the OCR feature where you insert an image or a scanned PDF and the app manages to extract text that you can process digitally. Other interesting features include fillable forms, signing of the documents, and full document editing which really preserves file formatting.
PDF Reader Pro takes care of your security and you'll notice that you can create passwords or prevent the document from being copied or printed. PDF Reader Pro is really a full package for users who can handle its hefty price.
However, you can use the 7-day trial and there are special discounts for education accounts. If you want to make a bulk education or military offer, you can simply contact the developers. PDF Reader Pro also supports the Volume Purchase Program for organizations or educational institutions.
