PDF Studio for Mac10.2.0
The PDF file format is widely used to store and share documents, as it ensures their layout remains the same regardless of the device or application used to open them. Additionally, it provides comprehensive security measures to protect the contained information.
However, it can be difficult to find an application that enables you to convert existing documents to this format and perform editing operations. PDF Studio is just such a tool, designed with user-friendliness in mind, that can help you with almost any PDF-related task.
Unimpressive looks and rather high resource usage
PDF Studio is a Java-based application that does not impress with its visual design and layout. This, however, does not affect its usefulness too much, although the interface can become cluttered at times and you may have problems locating certain functions.
Worth noting is the fact that, when being tested on a 2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo iMac with 6GB of RAM, PDF Studio used over 1.5 Ghz or RAM after a period of time. As a result, the application may not be well-suited for prolonged editing sessions.
Wide range of features that ensure the utility can help you with most PDF-related tasks
Not only can the application be used to create PDFs from Mircosoft Word documents, simple text files and images, but you can also import scanned content directly and save it in this format.
After loading or creating a PDF file, you can annotate it with comments, highlight text, fill forms, insert watermarks and apply stamps.
You can even extract specific pages from your documents, merge multiple files or append additional pages to existing PDFs.
Comprehensive app that can encrypt your documents and lets you manage permissions
It is important to ensure important information is kept away from prying eyes, and PDF Studio allows you to secure your documents by password-protecting them. Moreover, you can apply certain restrictions, preventing other users from modifying or printing your files.
Overall, PDF Studio is a powerful application that offers an extensive array of PDF editing functions. It is easy-to-use, although its high resource usage and unimpressive appearance may not be to the taste of many Mac users.
