Wondershare PDFelement is a cross-platform software suite for all of your PDF document creating and editing needs. It can not only create or edit PDF documents but it also comes with features that help you convert PDF documents to other file formats, convert scanned documents into editable PDF files using OCR and more.
PDFelement is not free but a trial version is available from the Wondershare website that you can use to evaluate the software and if it satisfies your PDF requirements then you can go ahead and buy the full version license.
PDFelement opens with an interface from where you can select an option to create a new PDF file, combine PDF files, edit an existing PDF file or convert other documents into a PDF file.
Creating or Editing a PDF Document with PDFelement
For creating a new PDF document, you have to choose File → New from the toolbar. You have to supply some basic information like the page size, page orientation (portrait or landscape), file name and the number of pages.
On the other hand, if you are trying to edit an existing PDF document, then you can choose File → Open from the toolbar and it will open that document for editing.
After this, you can start adding various elements on different page of the new PDF document. It is not like using a document editor like Microsoft Word, but more like using a graphics editor like Adobe Photoshop. You have to add elements like text, images or links and then change their properties, rotate them or change their position.
Once you are satisfied with your newly created PDF document, you can click on the Save button to save the file somewhere on your hard disk.
Converting PDF to other Formats using PDFelement
There are dozens of tools available on the internet that can create PDF from any other document format but it is rare to see a tool that can do the opposite – convert a PDF document into other document types like Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, images or text.
You can choose any of the conversion tools from the toolbar and then proceed to select a PDF document that you want to convert. You can also choose the OCR option which can convert the images inside the PDF into text data, but the OCR plug-in requires a separate registration and purchase.
The process can take from one second to a few minutes depending on the number of pages and the embedded content inside the PDF file. The resulting documents (Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc.) are fully compatible with Microsoft Office or Libre Office.
Combining multiple files into single PDF document
PDFelement is able to join multiple PDF documents into a single PDF file. But it can also join non-PDF documents into a single PDF file too. For example, if you have several JPEG images and a few Word documents, then you can join them all into a single PDF file.
For combining different files into one PDF, you have to select the Combine Files option from the toolbar. Then add all the supported file types (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, images and text files) into the list. The order in which you add the files to the list is the order in which they will be added in the PDF document. Clicking on the Next button will create a PDF using these files and open it in PDFelement for editing. You can then save this PDF anywhere on your hard disk.
Conclusion: Wondershare PDFelement is an all-in-one software suite for all the PDF creating or editing requirements. It packed with all the most wanted features like conversion of PDF to other documents, combining documents into a single PDF, OCR scanning into editable PDF and more.
