For years, I had thought that PDF meant Adobe. Not any more! Also, the "Cloud" is the "emperor's new clothes" of the IT world and I will never trust it. I don't want to depend on Internet connectivity to use my computers/software. Nuance PDF Standard gives me what I used to pay too much for from Adobe (Adobe Acrobat Professional)... and I can get it as a stand alone app that doesn't depend on the Cloud. As the word spreads, I can see Adobe losing their market share when end users discover that they can get more functionalities for a lower cost... and no cloud.

I used to have the Adobe product that could create forms, sign, redact, etc., on my work computer but I retired recently and knew I couldn't live without that ability. I was not 100% optimistic on using anything but Adobe, however, Power PDF Standard 2.0 has met every one of my expectations and then some. I'm unsure why folks were confused with some of the controls; I must have found them intuitive because I have no complaints on that part (but recall reading about issues). I'm SUPER impressed with the capabilities of this program. It does everything my old Adobe did and more (don't recall Adobe being able to break up or merge pages for me). My stupid scanner (guess I need a new one!?) only scans one page at a time so I ended up recently with 6 files for one document. I tried to merge feature with Power PDF and OMGosh, how simple it was to use and it worked PERFECTLY. Yes, very impressed and for the price compared to Adobe, this is a steal!! Buy it, you won't regret it!

Like most other reviewers, I'm no fan of the subscription system that Adobe Acrobat now come in. I like ownership, and do not always have access to a good high speed internet connection that cloud-based systems require.

That made me look elsewhere, and Nuance was within my budget, and highly rated (4 stars up).

In desperation, I was forced to buy the software without experimenting with a trial version.

In short, I was able to figure out how to do what I wanted within 5 minutes of installation and setup, and at the price point, I also felt I got my money's worth within a week or so.

What do I use the software to do? 99 % of the time, it is document assembly: Extracting and inserting pages. I have no need for and will never use a half of the other features, but maybe you might.

Based on the fact that the software does what it says it would, and that it was easy for me to find out how to do it, i would say that I'm satisfied. Easy download, installation and setup leaves me more than satisfied.

If i bought another computer tomorrow, i would buy the software again.
Keep up the good work, Nuance.

I've installed the Nuance PDF products on the job since about version 6. It's always been very popular with users and management as a cost effective alternative to Adobe's pricier products. Most of my users have it for its ability to "break" PDF documents and put them into an Excel spreadsheet or Word doc for making changes. Because the older versions were a little slow to open, I typically made Adobe Reader the users' default PDF reader; Adobe is hard to beat in the speed department. I have this newer Power PDF Standard 2.0 on my notebook now, but haven't used it enough to really judge the speed.
I'll add this very specific suggestion for any designers out there; if you're looking from something to create .tiff drawings from old PDFs, purchase the Nuance Power PDF Advanced instead. A bunch of my guys were using Nitro Pro, but the .tiff it created from .pdf were not high enough resolution for Raster CAD to do anything with. I downloaded the Advanced version of this and they now all want that instead of Nitro Pro. Again that's very specific, but maybe someone is looking around for a solution like we were.

Received product on time. I always have used Acrobat for my PDF's, thought I would give this a try. I love it much easier to use and edit PDF.

With my Lenovo i3 Windows 10 computer, I could not get it to work. It would download but it would not install. I tried online and still not. I bought a new computer (Dell Inspiron-because it was time to anyway) and tried to download on there. I did disable my AVG protection first (which I forgot to on my last computer). Download was successful and fast! I do wonder if that was the problem with my first computer.
Then came the frustration. There are no real instructions. I thought this was a waste at first. All I wanted to do was simply combine multiple documents into one (like an invoice and payment acknowledgement) and maybe insert text on them for a notation, if needed. I kept thinking "merge" is the appropriate selection to use, but, no. If you want one pdf page to be .merged with another pdf page. Use the "insert" button under the file tab. It will open up a file directory for you to select what file you want to insert your pdf file as "after last page" or before (whichever) page you select). It really is just like Adobe Acrocrobat and I wish I would have bought this sooner! I do highly recommend it. Just take time to learn it and maybe some youtube videos might help. Only four stars because of no clear directions or instructions. PS - remember to enable your Antivirus after installation.

Nuance Power PDF is my "go-to" .pdf tool because of its ease of use and capabilities. I used earlier versions of the product for several years when I was in the corporate world and bought a copy when I started my own business. It saves me time in that I can separate pages from or add pages to an existing document, and I can convert documents into editable format if needed, though some documents that are more forms than text do take some tweaking once converted. I much prefer Nuance Power PDF over other big name products. I feel I have more functionality, ease of use, and for much less cost.

I use this at work and even through our software vendor, the boxed set is $83 so my IT guy said to jump on this one for the price (was originally thinking of purchasing through work). Got it installed on my Windows 10 machine with minimum trouble and was able to right away, rotate previously scanned docs from the HP printer and start merging several docs together. I was pulling FSA stuff together and needed to also pull maps for medical mileage and because I use FF/Chrome, I had to 'print to pdf' my google maps (way better than last time I tried and ending up having to save the maps as jpgs then pdf's). No biggie. Apparently if you use MS Edge, you get an icon.

Already customized my Quick Access Toolbar the way I like. Pretty Pleased and happy to finally have more than a reader at home.

I just need it to be pretty basic at home, but at work, I do use this program to add comments, create fill-in forms and more so if you're looking for those features, this program does have them.

p.s. most of the online pdf programs you have to pay a subscription for or pay for a premium to be able to view/merge etc. This is one and done.

As others have written, I also have always used Adobe Acrobat. . . .until now! Never again will I pay their outrageous prices. This does the same thing and does it easier. For those that are afraid to try the screens are laid out the same a MS programs. If you can work in the newer WORD and Publisher you will have no problem as the layout and functions are exactly the same. I have not used all the functions but I have no fear that I will not be able to handle them with ease. Once used never look back! !

I got the digital download and was worried this might be difficult to use without a manual. But this software is intuitive and easy to use. Setup was easy (once I turned off my anti-virus) and it quickly connected to my Epson Workforce printer for me to scan my documents. I made my first PDF with this software within minutes. Compared to the other more expensive PDF software this is a truly fantastic choice for the price!
