PDF Studio seems, overpriced considering the features of new Preview in Mountain Lion.

You could also purchase PDFPenPro for an additional $10 compared to the standard version of PDF Studio and get a full featured pdf editor that performs most any task you would ask of an PDF editing program.

Just my opinion!

PDF Studio 7 Pro is SO customizable now! I can rearrange the toolbars, set up the toolchest to make EACH type of processing I'm doing easiest. I can fill out forms online, whether they're interactive or not! And, I can revise earlier documents, like course work, or even redact sensitive information. I love being able to grab an entire directory of files (images, Word docs, PDFs, and texts) into PDF in one operation, then rearrange, markup, and save or send without having to change programs.
Great job, Qoppa Software!

In her profile, PDF_Susan has only reviewed and rate 2 products and it turns out they are both Qoppa products, seems a bit blatant.

I've used Skim for taking notes for school and notating pdf files of articles I need to reference.

pdf Studio is a much simpler program! It took 5 minutest to learn this program. I wish all programs were that simple to learn.

Just tried the pdf studio. I have been using Adobe pro on my pc for many years, and needed something to use for my macbook. I specifically needed to extract/delete pages, and/or insert pages, and scan. Occasionally highlight text. Rarely change text.

This product is just a fraction of the cost, but does everything except change existing text.

Wow... It is a bargain.

I cant't comment on PDF Studio, but are you aware that Preview - Apple's software that comes with OS X - since its Leopard version does everything you're asking for as well but the cost is 100 % less than even PDF Studio? In Preview you can as well add, remove, rearrange pages, scan, annotate and highlight text.
Again, other than that PDF Studio might offer a lot more (forms, batch processing ...)

Preview can't edit text either. A big omission on Apple's part. For a start it makes filling out forms impossible.

Bolonga

Correct.
Although Preview got better and better with each incarnation of OS X, there remains room for improvement.
Anyhow, I was merely relating to Dr Bob B's "List Of Specific Needs", where Preview fulfils all his requests but "Rarely change text".
If $60 is a bargain for something one rarely needs depends on how important that feature is if only rarely needed.

Dr Bob B, your missing capability noted in the fall of 2010 has been addressed by PDF Studio 7! If you upgrade your older version to the current 7.3.1, you'll gain the ability to modify PDFs, too!

This product is pretty good when it comes to the batch processing, which is something that I will use on a regular basis given the work that I do. I also think the Google Docs feature they added will help out alot with people like me who find it easier to be able to access my documents without having take additional steps to complete my work. Time is money to me.

The app doesn't look great, but for me it has one feature that I didn't find elsewhere yet: I am a user of an Intuos tablet and want to do free-hand annotations (corrections) to a PDF file that I can then send other people involved.
Preview doesn't do it ; Skim does the graphical annotation very poorly and you cannot export it as PDF.
PDF Studio does it properly.
Any other alternative apps known?

Preview has a large number of annotation options. Must you use the tablet's? If it doesn't work maybe the most fruitful option is to make suggestions to Intuos.

Update: I found *my* best solution. It's called PDFpen, and works like a charm. And yes, I really want to use freehand annotations with the tablet (as if I were working on paper) and not the predefined highlights, boxes etc., which take more time to annotate if you have lots of them.
That being said, GoodReader on iPad is another option I start using now.

@Baaden Whatever happened to Ink? That was a Tiger technology from memory.

Baaden
+0

@Rubaiyat I haven't tried Ink for ages, but as far as I remember it's idea is a bit different. You can use the tablet as alternative to the keyboard, eg hand-write on screen, which is then analyzed and 'typed' in the active application. But I don't think there was an option to use ink for graphical annotations of documents - or I must have completely missed it.

Hi Baaden, you write in March that your best solution is PDFpen, but this doesn't appear to allow much free writing unless I'm missing something. When I write with my tablet, as soon as I lift my pen, the tool switches back to the pointer and my text is highlighted in a box so that I can move it. Am I missing something?

I think it's more than about time for these developers who port Windows apps to the Mac platform to either quit doing so or spend the time making an app that actually looks, acts, and feels like a native Mac app.

Go with Preview and Skim. They're both free!

I agree. Formulate Pro is another good free one.

I really can not see the point of these programs. Except for the ability to fill in pdf forms just about everything else can be done in Preview in OSX 10.5.

What Mac users really need is a method for distilling postscript files or checking for adequate resolution and to convert rgb intrusions in cmyk .pdfs going to commercial printers.

Neat and fast ways of splitting up multi-page pdfs for importing into Cocoa apps would be good as well.

I agree with all the other posters that this is the laziest port of software I have seen in a long time and I would not dream of paying what they are asking.

Maybe the message will hit home and they will do some work on this after realising that the Mac market is not as desperate as the PC market.

Unfortunately, Preview does NOT allow you to append pages from other PDF documents - a crucial feature for some of us.

@Mkirkwag ::: Preview does allow you to do that. Just drag and drop using the sidebar in Preview. Easy. Simple.

Rubaiyat
+0

@Mkirkwag Actually Preview's method is the easiest way of appending any number of pages where you want them.

Apple unfortunately does not document the fantastic set of features in this and other supplied software. There are however tutorial videos and tips if you are persistent enough to chase them down on Apple's website.

Rubaiyat and Craig42a, I wish one of you would show me how. I've tried drag and drop, searched for an import command, searched the net high and low to find a way to do do it and never found it. Move pages, yes. Append docs, no. I'm not sure what could be simpler than click, insert page, click, but I'd certainly be delighted to see it!

@Mkirkwag Works best in Snow Leopard, there were some bugs previously.

Menu > View > Sidebar > Show Sidebar > click on little cluster of squares bottom right

Then click on & drag and drop thumbnails between open Preview pdfs and to & from Desktop.

Thanks, Rubaiyat! That worked. It's clunkier than the acrobat pro version, but it works and it's free. I guess I'd never tried clicking on that silly button, and all I did was change programs. Having to have everything all lined up and the right button chosen - I'd have never figured it out.

Highlighting works nicely, but not enough to justify the price and the otherwise very poor Mac interface.

Considering the following:

1. Preview already does just about every single thing this app claims to do.

2. The app is an ugly Windows port.

3. They want $60 dollars for it!!

I can't recommend this application.
