I started using Sejda in early 2020, almost two years ago. At the time I was looking for a tool precisely to manipulate PDFs. I've tested other free and paid solutions, especially MasterPDF, but the one I use continuously is Sejda.

Pros

Sejda can do a lot of things and still have a clean, intuitive interface, with virtually no learning curve. It has a desktop application, which makes all the difference to me, there is no need to use web apps. You can quickly manipulate PDFs, such as filling out forms sent in PDFs, inserting an illustration containing your physical signature of the document (not a digital signature, just an illustration representing your signature). I think of everything, what I like the most is the speed at which I can do all this with Sejda. It's not time consuming.

Cons

To be honest, I have no complaints about the tool. For my use it works perfectly. Of course, there are many things that the tool doesn't do, and for that it is necessary to use another tool. Especially reading and tagging PDFs, a constant demand in many management professions, cannot be done in Sejda.

Sejda is an indispensable utility that should be implemented in every office environment.

Sejda prominently offers a wide selection of tools that's catalysed my workload ever since trying out its free version. The user experience is overall amazing & everything looks polished & easy to access at first glance. It's just a convenient tool that really makes a night-and-day difference when taking on office-related work.

Pros

The shear amount of features, silky-smooth desktop & web interface & the ridiculously-low subscription compelled me to stick with Sejda for my PDF-handling workload. Both the website & desktop versions equally offer tons of must-have features such as PDF conversion, size-reduction, merging & editing as well as page extraction, deletion & watermarking all of which I find myself using regularly.

Cons

While the OCR functionality is outstanding here, it can sometimes take its sweet time processing Arabic text (especially with content apparently using the bold, Sultan font). I hope to see an accelerated performance in future updates.

Reasons for Switching to Sejda

Sejda simply offers a vast amount of features that solely focuses on bringing the best user experience when handling large PDF documents. The alternatives I sought didn't seem to possess as many features for their asking price to dissuade me from using Sejda from the get-go.

A handy PDF editing tool for your PC also available online that is like a combination of various tools rather than a single software that can do all of these things. I use this as my primary PDF conversion tool on the desktop.

Pros

several tools available
some very unique tools like' breakdown by bookmarks'
available on the web as well as desktop
very nice appearance
pretty stable, rarely encounter errors, does its job
also has the ability to convert between various other document formats and PDF and converts them very fast
merging two files is quite advanced compared to other PDF editors. you can even alternate and mix two documents which come very very useful at times
several free to use features (3-tasks per day) which is more than enough for occasional users
updates so frequently with new features and fixes

flexible pricing options, including even weekly.

Cons

you first choose what you want to do and then choose the file. a pretty unusual and problematic approach
devoid of most file editing capabilities, so you can not use it to compose a PDF
subsciption is too costly. it will cost you as much as microsoft office 365 which seems way to much for a PDF tool

Despite its limitations, Sejda PDF is a powerful application that is easy to access (online or as a desktop app), intuitive to use, and is fairly priced. I use the software all the time, and I'm usually able to accomplish what I need within the limits of the free version - but if I need more, I might purchase a short-term subscription, which is affordable and much cheaper than alternative programs. This program is still much less powerful than Adobe Acrobat Pro, but it suits my needs very well most of the time.

Pros

This program can do almost anything you'd need to do with PDF documents - converting to a text or image file, merging or splitting pages, compressing based on file size, editing the document, e-signing documents, and more. It's also free to use up to three times a day, and I can usually get my tasks done within those three uses. (The premium version is fairly priced, and much more affordable than Adobe Acrobat, but of course Acrobat is a much better, more powerful application.)

Cons

The program (both the desktop version and the online version) is divided by function (such as merging documents, converting, editing...). This can sometimes make it cumbersome and inefficient to accomplish many different kinds of tasks in one go. This is especially significant if you are using the free version, because you are limited to 3 tasks per day. However, it's still a useful tool that works relatively well, and can save you a lot of money if you only need a PDF editor every now and then.
