PDF-XChange Pro
« on: October 16, 2018, 04:49 PM »
Yes, the PDF-XChange Pro bundle will be promo'd on Bits du Jour later this month. So keep watch for it as we usually only run promotions on our software once a year and through BDJ.
-Tracker X-Change PDF

At $93.50 as the normal price, a discount only once a year, may be worth keeping an eye on.
You can order a Look Up! email at http://www.bitsdujou...ware/pdf-xchange-pro

Today they are offering 30% discount on the normal Editor: $30.45 $43.50: http://www.bitsdujou...in=todays-deals-home

I am disappointed the discount merely is 30% off.

That lines up with the prior discount on just the editor, doesn't it?

The Soda PDF Desktop 10 Premium is what I picked up from Bits du Jour.
http://www.bitsdujou...om/software/soda-pdf

You go Get this Deal and it is the $59 one. (Be careful not to get the ANYWHERE subscription stuff.)
Soda PDF 10 - Premium Lifetime License

And I don't think they ever took it off sale...

Note: this does not include the OCR, (if you need it on an occasional month you can get it on subscription for $20.)

The company and product seems quite good.  So far I have only used the reader, which is well designed, I plan to make PDFs shortly.
It is possible that XChange Pro has more moving parts.

I have used PDF-XChange a lot over the years.

If you are into scripting and want to create PDFs from existing documents, you could also take a look at PanDoc. For my purposes (converting lightly formatted, mostly text-based Word documents and wiki pages to PDF) this works pretty fast and satisfactory. And it saved me from having to install PDF printer software on my system. Caveat, I try to keep my PCs as mean and lean as possible.

PanDoc is free to use in any type of environment, if I read the license document correctly. It was originally intended to convert documents to/from Latex, but as the years went by, more and more support for very different types of documents was added. Google results show that GUI tools for PanDoc have been made by 3rd parties/hobbyists, so that might help you over the script only nature of the PanDoc software.

Myself, I prefer the script version, so I have tried any of the available GUIs for it myself. Just thought to mention it.
