For cross platform document sharing and access, there are few file formats that can challenge the popularity of PDF. While a majority of windows users stick to Adobe’s Acrobat for PDF viewing, sharing and creation needs there are other alternatives too. Corel, known mostly for its versatile media application CorelDraw, has a nifty and feature rich PDF creation application named PDF Fusion.

PDF files are used by millions of computer users every day. While PDF readers remain the most widely used apps for dealing with those files, some users also need PDF editors and converters.

Ascertia’s PDF Sign&Seal is one such instance. It lacks some editing tools and extensive output customizations offered by popular PDF editors but offers good PDF conversion options.
