I just want to say how pleased I was to see how much substance you put into your software.  I’m also impressed with your online user guide, as well as the multi-platform support.  So much software is offered without a user guide, depending on a “knowledge base” to help people learn.  Very inefficient…

 This program puts Acrobat to shame. Keep up the good work! – A linux user.

I just purchased PDF Studio Pro for personal use after spending a couple of days extensively trailing a whole bunch of other similar software. I’m an architect and use Acrobat Pro at work on a daily basis but I have to say that your software absolutely blows it out of the water! I have also used Bluebeam PDF software extensively on my previous Windows machine and again PDF Studio outshines it and is in my opinion, much better value for money.

PDF Studio Pro runs seamlessly on my Mac and I’m finding the interface/menus intuitive, logical and extremely easy to use. From a functionality viewpoint your software does everything that Acrobat/Bluebeam does but is far simpler and much easier to navigate/operate – I’ve not found any limitations yet. As you probably gathered by now, I am extremely impressed, so thank you for a fine piece of software that is a joy to use.

2After version 6, (2003) no version of Adobe Acrobat for Linux or Unix was released. Adobe Reader, the PDF viewer, stopped at version 9 (2008) and recent versions have been available.
