This is the best PDF software

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.

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.

Reasons for Switching to Adobe PDF Library

We usually are able to do what we want. Except for big pdf (or poorly formatted) where sometimes we find some operations very slow.

Pros

Low level API
Good documentation
Easy to implement

Cons

Very slow for some operations
Very slow with huge PDF (sometimes it takes more than a day to merge several PDF and save the result)

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.
