Wondershare PDFelement can help you create and modify PDF documents. It also supports converting a long list of file formats into PDF and vice versa. The program offers an appealing graphical user interface with a modern minimalist look. Its neatness is accentuated by the use of ribbons which substitute side panels and consequently save much screen space. Besides, the tabs allow opening various documents at the same time and from the same window.

The editor permits creating PDFs from scratch or from other documents. In this regard, you can generate a blank PDF and start adding the content. Moreover, you can open any other supported file and begin modifying it. Unfortunately, the tool doesn’t seem to support importing a document directly from a scanner.

As to editing options, Wondershare PDFelement is feature-rich. It allows adding and editing texts as well as using multiple font types. Besides, it lets you embed different types of graphics or modify the existing ones. In addition, it supports managing the pages by deleting or extracting a given range as well as splitting a document. You can use it to combine or append your documents. One thing I really love about this program is that it lets you copy snapshots of selected document areas not only to the clipboard but to a new file as well.

If you frequently need to create or fill forms, Wondershare PDFelement could be the right tool for you as it is both simple and powerful. This editor ensures easy navigation by allowing users to insert hyperlinks and manage bookmarks. It is a pity that the OCR function is based on a plug-in that is sold separately from the application and is not available to try.

For those users who need to protect their documents in different ways, Wondershare PDFelement helps add watermarks and digital signatures. And that’s not all, the program can also apply restrictions to various operations, such as copying and printing. Finally, your documents can be encrypted and secured by passwords.

In terms of distribution, this tool offers many possibilities. Thus, apart from printing, you can also share the final documents in such cloud-based services as Dropbox, Google Drive and Evernote. Moreover, there’s an impressive list of formats that the tool supports converting to. In this regard, I was very positively impressed by the possibility of converting the tables in a document into an Excel book.

To conclude, Wondershare PDFelement is probably one of the best tools available to edit PDF documents. It has the advantage of being easier to use than other similar editors and in terms of sophistication, it is more than a match for most of them.
