PDFs are everywhere, and yet so many users miss out an opportunity. What opportunity? To customize their PDFs and do some amazing stuff
with them. Let us explain this better. While it is easy to create PDFs with virtual PDF printer drivers and more, most users are just
touching the tip of the iceberg as far as PDF capabilities go. Our review product,
PDF Editor Pro for Mac can help.
PDF Editor Pro for Mac is from PDF Solutions, a company based in Guangdong, China that specializes in PDF solutions. You
can download a trial version of
PDF Editor Pro from their site. My contact for
this review was Denny Chan - thank you, Denny.
Follow these steps to see a quick walkthrough of using PDF Editor Pro for Mac:
Download the trial version or purchase a licensed version of PDF Editor Pro for Mac, and run the install program, as shown in
Figure 1, below.

Once you finish installing, you can now run PDF Edtor Pro from the Applications folder. You will see the interface shown
in Figure 2.

We clicked the Open File button on the bottom-right (see Figure 2 above). You can also choose the
Edit PDF option. Either option opens an existing PDF, as shown in Figure 3, below. Do note that this is
a fairly simple PDF created in Microsoft PowerPoint, and PDF Editor Pro opened the file in an instant. We could similarly open larger,
complicated PDFs almost instantly.

We will now show you how easy it is to replace a picture in PDF Editor Pro. To do so, we double-clicked the picture of the Buddha you see in
Figure 3, above. This action brings up the Picture dialog box that you can see in Figure 4, below. Note
that there are options that allow you to Extract, Crop, and Rotate the picture. We will use the fourth option: Replace

The Replace option brings forth a dialog box that lets you choose a replacement image. We selected another image (see
Figure 5: Replaced image
You can use the Extract option to save the picture and then edit the same picture in an image editor. Then get this
image back using the Replace option!
You can see the swapped image in Figure 6, below. We admit this was a wow factor—we have not seen another program
change images in a PDF so seamlessly.

Not only can you replace, extract, add or delete images in PDFs; you can also insert, delete, rotate, crop, replace, rearrange or organize
PDF pages with ease. Let us now work with pages. You can see extensive options in the Pages pane on the right, seen in
Figure 7: Pages Pane
Not only can you add and remove pages, but you can also replace, split and crop pages. The slpit option is amazing – and lets you create
multiple PDFs from one PDF. This is great if you have a large PDF which has multiple chapters, and you want each chapter to be a separate
PDF. These options far exceed the possibilities available within Adobe’s own PDF apps.
You can also easily select text, right-click and find a slew of options including strikethrough and highlighting (see
Figure 8). These options are helpful if you need to comment and send PDFs back to someone.

Of course, you can still do regular commenting as well as almost anything you can do with other PDF programs.
PDF Editor Pro is an astonishingly capable tool that’s a great asset. A single-user license will cost you $99.95 and will allow you
install on one Mac system. Support options include an online FAQ, online tutorials, Twitter-based support, and more. You can also directly
ask a question via an online form. They also offer a 30-day money back guarantee.
