This experience has been positive, I’m satisfied. Signing documents without pen and paper or face to face meetings has saved time and propelled us into a better way of getting work done.
This has saved the day many times when I received PDFs from clients and sometimes even from our attorneys that have tons of errors. I don’t know how else I would have fixed them.
Like I said, Adobe is the creator of the PDF and will likely always be the best way to generate and edit them. The person or company who created something will almost always know more about it than another company who came along later.

Pros

Adobe created the Portable Document Format or PDF.
This is the best PDF generator, reader, and editor. It’s the best way to print PDFs.
This can be used with Adobe software like Adobe acrobat, giving it more uses.
Sign documents without using pen and paper, cleanly without errors.
If a PDF does have errors Adobe PDF library is able to fix them. Convert or compress a file.
All of the current updates in the PDF world are present.

Cons

This is expensive. Some people think it’s hard to use, the Java version has given me temporary problems.
Signing documents is faster with newer APIs.

Alternatives Considered

Reasons for Choosing Adobe PDF Library

This we only tried for a short time and quickly returned to Adobe PDF library and Adobe acrobat. It’s basically the same but Soda PDF wasn’t as good.

Adobe is a company everyone knows and we trust them more than companies we’ve never heard of.

The overall experience of using Adobe PDF Library for more than 2 years is quite good and I will continue using it until I found a better tool for PDF modification than Adobe PDF Library.

Pros

The main reason why I like Adobe PDF Library the most is because it's quite fast and easy to use and it also provides a large number of tools that are good to have for PDF modification. It gives high-quality PDFs as output so I will never get bored of using Adobe PDF Library.

Cons

I do not dislike anything that is related to Adobe PDF Library.

Been using the PDF library for over 10 years now. We use it to make custom documents as a plugin. Have used it to implement all sorts of PDF related features from custom image clipping to accessibility text for hearing impaired.

Pros

Generates good clean PDF's, Very handy in cleaning up bad PDF's as well. Really this is the standard that everyone else try's to measure up to.

The software has very good handling of PDF Documents many times it can load bad PDF's and fix the errors in them as well as clean up PDF document data for better optimization.

Cons

Expensive, I guess you get what you pay for sometimes but its a huge reason why many people will/cannot use it.

Pros

My favorite features of Adobe PDF Library is that it is a 1 stop shop where documents are able to be created, edited and automated to streamline the PDF workflows. It also supports file conversion.

Cons

This solution works well, however, it takes some time to get familiar with the interface, it's functions and capabilities.

As an electrical engineer, I deal with many PDF documents related to the day to day works and assigned projects. Therefore Adobe PDF library is one of the products that make easy my workload. Also, it allows users to do almost every related to PDF file editing, viewing.

Cons

At the beginning it hard to understand how to use some features.

Best on the market for what it does

Reviewed on 2019/05/10

Pros

Uses same core libraries as Acrobat and therefore gets as close as possible to the "golden standard" of PDF handling software. Wrappers add a nice higher level of abstraction that simplifies working with PDFs at low level.

Cons

Even though overall quality level is pretty high there are bugs, just like in any complex system.

Becoming more productive by being able to take care of all the miscellaneous changes in our documents makes a huge difference.

Pros

I love how easy it is to edit any document in a very short time without needing to print anything, make the adjustment and scan it back in the computer. Also, it's super helpful when it comes to using signatures on any of the documents that require that.

Cons

There's nothing crossing my mind that I can honestly say I disliked about this product.
