Deletes text from pdfs and freezes
This app deletes all the text you might have added to your pdf and there's no possibility to recover it unless you have a backup of it. Also every time I want to work on a new file I have to close and open the app again or it just freezes. Not recommended.
Need to sort randomly placed PDF pages?
You can't really do much better than PDFactory. This app makes me glad that the App Store exists. I never would have found it using Google as Google never associated PDFactory with a page sorter. PDFactory works very well.I'd like to see the addition of the ability to sort on a fixed location's string of text. That is, select the fixed field location on a page with a box, perhaps. Then sort a range of pages that have text in that location alphabetically using the strings that are at that box location on every page in the sort range. Thanks for the app. It's really helpful!
Did what I needed
This app is fairly simple, but it did exactly what I needed which was to be able to quickly make a pdf out of groups of images. Only issue I ran across was that there was no way to save the newly created pdf unless I tried to delete it out of the top row. Then you are prompted where to save it and with what name. Otherwise great little app.
Great App At Huge Savings
I bought this app AFTER buying several others for manipulating PDF docs. Wish I had bought this one first! The others total over $100 to do what I can do with this one for less than 5 bucks! I scan my magazines and save them as PDF after I read them so I have them later for reference without hanging onto the paper. My scanner will handle 25 sheets in a stack, so a magazine usually ends up being 3 or 4 PDF files. I just wanted to..1) Rotate pages that scan in upside down or sideways. (It happens, weird but it happens)2) Merge the 3 or 4 files into 1 complete PDF per magazine. This app does both jobs easily. It is even easier to use than another program that costs about $50 US. And that program won't rotate pages so I have another program that I was using to rotate first, then I had to EXPORT back to PDF format, open in app #2 and merge the files there. This program does ALL those tricks and does it easier and WAY cheaper. Good job! I will look for other programs by this company.
Mostly a good simple app for cutting, rearranging, merging pdfs. Nice clean interface is flawed by completely non-intuitive behavior around saving new/changed and original files. Save is not offered in the menu bar or in any interface element (hint: hit the 'close' button) and at the same time original files may be unintentionally saved in a different state. Should be easily fixed by the developer, then it would merit another star.
