There are some tools for PDF editing on Mac, but perhaps one as complete as PDFelement for Mac will be difficult to find. With it you can create files with a wide range of file formats, edit quickly including scans, and even convert to other types of files such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint just on your Mac.

When you open the app for the first time you will come across a very simple screen. In the center is a large block that shows the last files you worked on. In small blocks on the right side we have shortcuts for the functions of creation, editing, conversion, batch processing, and even combining several files or following predefined templates.
At the top of the window are the tabs that organize the resources, which resembles Word a lot. Anyone who is used to the Microsoft office suite will not get lost here. In the second list we have the arrow, hand and write options. There are also shortcuts to open a file from your document folder, scan a new one, or combine several into one.
To create a PDF is very simple. Select the PDF Creation option on the home screen. A pop-up window will appear for you to choose a base file. It can be one of Word, for example. Once this is done, it will convert the document to an editable PDF.
From here you can insert new information into the document. Just select the Text Editor option (which is next to the hand icon at the top). The program recognizes the entire textual part of the document and creates an edit box around each group.
On the right side, the properties tab opens, where you can edit the font type, size, alignment, spacing, etc. At the top we have shortcuts to include links embedded in the text, add images, resize elements, color the background, include a watermark and so on.
It’s very simple to create a document from scratch or convert one that you’ve started with Office. The formatting is completely maintained, unlike other PDF editors on the market that are not always compatible with all fonts and formats, which will end up leaving the document full of errors.

The main one is to ask for a pre-defined password whenever the file is opened. You can also prevent improper printing or even limit the quality when printing. It is also possible to prevent editing or release only partial editing, such as allowing you to sign the document, edit only text or insert images without modifying the formatting.
Convert PDF to other formats
Do you want to convert a PDF file to other formats? In addition to traditional support for the Microsoft office suite, you can also switch your document to a common text format (TXT or RTF). HTML standard and even .epub are commonly supported in ebook readers. It is also possible to convert to the image format. In this case, each page of the document will be converted to a separate file, which can be in JPG, PNG, GIF, TIFF or BMP formats. The final quality is very good and you will not lose any details of your document during the conversion.
All of this is done in a very simple way. From the application’s home screen, simply select PDF Conversion. A window will open for you to choose the file to be converted. Then in the bottom box just choose the format and save. That simple.
