INSTALL & SETUP
PDF Expert 2 is installed by simply drag & drop into your applications folder. Now set it as your default PDF-reader instead of Apple’s Preview.
USING PDF EXPERT 2
Readdle PDF Expert 2 has strong competitors like Adobe Acrobat DC or Wondershare PDFElement. PDF Expert must have some features setting it apart from anything else or must be a close competitor prise wise.
First thing we notice is the clean layout and a menubar showing the icons for pdf-actions.
PDF Expert automatically marks all ‘links’ in the document. ( green ), which makes it easier to find and change.
PDF Expert supports all basic tools and some more like the stamp tool enabling you to add presets to your document.
PDF EXPERT 2 VIDEO
Working with PDF Expert is easy and doesn’t take much getting used to. Wether you want to add links or redact text. PDF Expert does it all. Changing/adding images works really well and fast.
Imported images can be rotated in 45 degree. steps, like most PDF editors. Readdle could make a difference if this was to be made showing the circular arrow enabling 360 degr. rotation.
PDF Expert 2 really works fast, but lacks character recognition like PDFElement. But not all users need this function, so if you can do without PDF Expert 2 will work for you.
Another useful tool is the ability to protect your pdf-document from the PDF menubar, as well as reducing the pdf-file size.
