PDF Studio Pro from Qoppa is an awesome alternative to the pricier Adobe Acrobat Pro program. I used Adobe Acrobat X Pro for many years in Windows, but now I am a Mac user and Acrobat is simply too expensive. I downloaded the trial version of PDF Studio Pro and was amazed at the capabilities it brings and It allows me to easily edit documents, annotate, format fields, etc. It allows easy reordering of pdf documents and digital signature. I would say the best part of this product is that is affordable while maintaining all the capabilities the more expensive products like Adobe Acrobat brings. You can downloaded the software here - https://www.qoppa.com/pdfstudio/

PDF studio have an "import pdf in layer" future, wich permit me to build a pdf multi-layers (layers of a Affinity Designer project, but AD can't export in a pdf with layers, only all layers fusioned or 1 layer by pdf) With Preview or others, it's not possible to see layers or build layers by using others pdf.

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!

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.

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?

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 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.

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.

I tried this application only briefly and found the interface to be very dated. I was interested in the stamp feature. I imported a scan of my signature but it only seems to accept JPEG and GIF formats so devising a stamp with alpha channel transparency, so that it simulates writing your name, say on a dotted line, is rather ineffectual due to the bounding box of the image. It may be that this software has the power and flexibility you need but for my limited purposes it's too expensive and too unpleasant. Oh well.

This is frankly the worst-looking application I've seen in many years. It looks like a bad OS9 app. No; it looks like a bad OS8 app. Perhaps it performs well; I don't really know. Due to its unseemly appearance, I simply wasn't the least bit interested in determining how well it performs. I gained quite a bit of insight when I checked the developer's web site to see if the app has particular features I need. Links to the online user manual for detailed information revealed that PDF Studio is a Windows application that has simply been "ported" to the Mac platform. I don't have a problem with that, in theory. Other developers have successfully ported applications from one platform to another. No problem! But in this case, no effort was made to make the application attractive or to make it look like a Mac app. (Or any effort that was made was 100% unsuccessful.) Although on the surface PDF Studio appears to have more features than Smile On My Mac's "PDF Pen," I'll live without the extra features in order to keep working with an app that's a pleasure to look at (while working).
