The PDF is one of the most popular file formats in the world. Yet somehow, a good PDF editor is still hard to find.

Wondershare PDFelement Professional is a simple PDF editor loaded with features. It caters to everyday users as well as professionals who need advanced tools. And you can get a perpetual license on sale for $119 (regularly $159) for a limited time.

Mac PDF editor (Windows, too)

It’s frustratingly common. You have a document you need to fill out, but you only have a PDF copy. You try to convert it, but the formatting breaks. You try to copy the text, but it’s not readable. Finally, you try to fill it out on your computer, but the fillable text boxes are broken or incomplete.

It’s 2022. You shouldn’t have to print a document, fill it out, and scan it back to yourself.

PDFelement unlocks PDFs and could make them your favorite type of file. It allows you to add text, images and shapes, which you can customize. If you want to switch file types to do something in another app, you can seamlessly convert between Word, Excel, PNG and JPG, among others. And your formatting won’t get ruined.

If you only have a printed copy of a document, you can scan it, and PDFelement will recognize the text so you can edit or search it. Additionally, the app lets you draw, annotate or add notes to your PDFs. And if you have a form you need to create or complete, PDFelement recognizes forms and makes it easy to fill in the blanks. Or you can create your own fillable text fields, checkboxes, combo boxes, images and more.

Creating detailed forms from existing documents can save you quite a bit of time. That’s what one G2 reviewer noticed: “The ability to turn a pdf into a fillable form is the easiest and most complete solution that I’ve encountered. It’s been really easy for me to empower my team to deploy forms to clients or internally to improve efficiency.”

You can even add a password to your PDFs for some extra security.
