Nitro PDF Professional Editor's Review

A majority of computer users, especially Windows users, think of Adobe Acrobat when you mention the word PDF. There is no denying the fact that Adobe actually invented the platform independent format and its Acrobat reader and Acrobat Pro is used by majority of computer users worldwide since inception of PDF. However, that does not mean you do not have other alternatives for using and creating PDF files. Apart from several freeware PDF viewing apps, you can also use some capable third party tools to make and edit PDF documents, without resorting to Acrobat at all. One such example is Nitro PDF Professional. It may not match Adobe’s powerhouse app feature wise but puts up a respectable performance and does not tax your wallet much.

Nitro PDF Professional can be used on computers equipped with Windows XP and subsequent editions. It supports both 32 and 64 bit Windows OS versions. Unlike Acrobat, this app is not heavy on system resources. It integrates with apps like MS Word seamlessly.

The app has a nice looking ribbon interface which is quite intuitive too. Anyone familiar with Office suites will learn how to use this app fast. With Nitro PDF Professional, you can create, edit and export PDF files with ease. Since Nitro PDF adds its own PDF "printer" to OS, you can make PDF files from literally any software installed. While it adds PDF-creation tools to apps of MS Office, you may not require them if you already use Office 2007 or later editions.

One nice feature in Nitro PDF Professional is that the app creates bookmarks in PDF document by default. It is something Acrobat is yet to implement. Nitro lets you edit an entire paragraph of text unlike an individual line what Acrobat does. As it is, Acrobat's insistence on modifying a single line when you want to work can be quite annoying. Nitro does a better job of adding text to an existing paragraph. However, this is not a fail proof feature.

Just like Acrobat, Nitro PDF Professional exports PDF files to popular Microsoft Office formats. The difference is with complex PDFs, Nitro fares better than Acrobat pro. If you export a table from PDF to Word, the table will remain editable in Word. The same is true of exporting web page to Word. The app comes with an Automatic OCR feature that works behind PDF to Word/Excel conversion. To protect your PDF files from unauthorized access, the app offers a range of safety features including password security. This is ideal for business users.

Nitro PDF Professional excels in creating form based PDF files too. The Forms ribbon of this app contains all sorts of tools you will need to create a professional looking PDF based form. They can be dragged and dropped on page to generate a form with interactive fields. However, it lacks a feature to automate form field creation, something included in Acrobat Pro. The app’s review ribbon is useful for working on PDF files that are meant for collaboration. It has tools for annotations and markup etc.

Nitro’s Type Text tool is useful when you want to type text in PDF files and it offers guides for aligning text with other page elements. The app is not as capable as Acrobat Pro as far as editing existing documents is concerned. Still, it offers reasonably good amount of text editing features including font changing, resizing and spacing alteration etc. However, it does not excel when it comes to image wrapping.

While Nitro PDF Professional does offer consistently good performance in all PDF related tasks, it also has its share of drawbacks. It tends to load PDF documents a tad slower than Acrobat, to begin with. It also lacks indexing, which is a component in Acrobat. It can be an issue when dealing with large PDF documents. The OCR feature works well on small documents but not on large PDF files.

Positive Points:
 -  Low system requirement, Intuitive interface.
 -  Built in OCR at no extra cost.
 -  Excellent integration with MS Office.
 -  Priced way lower than Acrobat Pro.

Negative Points:
 -  Lacks advanced features found in Acrobat.
 -  OCR feature fares poorly while dealing with large files.
 -  Lacks PDF indexing support.
 -  PDF loading can be slow.

Conclusion:
Despite technological advancements, you cannot find a PDF application that scores well on all fronts and this is true of Nitro PDF Professional too. The app is ideal if you want basic PDF related tasks getting done without hiccups. It offers nice integration with MS office and file conversion is actually better than Acrobat in some instances. The integrated OCR works well except when you deal with large documents. If lack of PDF indexing and slow PDF loading do not make you ruffled, it makes sense to try this nifty app.

Rating:  3.5/5
