Looking for an OCR? Look elsewhere.

I was looking for an app that would convert images with text into searchable PDFs. There are plenty of free applications that do this but you can only submit one page at a time and the file normally needs to be edited. I was hoping to avoid that. I found this app via a Google search and downloaded it from the app store. As soon as the image I wanted to be searchable popped up, the app asked me if I wanted to use OCR. I clicked, “Yes”. Another window then popped up saying, “Sorry, you’re a sucker and you have to buy the pro version.” This is paraphrased, but who actually reads all the tiny text when you just need a simple thing done in the span of a few minutes? Not me. I click on the link to buy pro, thinking it might be a monthly service or something… Nope, pro costs $100.

And as another reviewer stated… I’d also like to test the OCR before buying. Most apps at least give you a few pages for free, but this doesn’t even have that. Not worth the gamble.

… I’ll use the free online applications and edit them.

I am so sorry about the inconvenience that brought to you. And I am so sorry to tell that OCR is the limitation for trial version, but we are offer a 30-day money back policy, then users can have a try on our program. Honor your understanding.

“Saving" Issues

I really love the idea of what the app has to offer, it’s exciting to work and study with so many privileges! However, my happiness lasted until I tried to save my work (I’m fine with havign the watermark for now, since I’m test-running the product). The app crashed; I though maybe I had gone a little too wild editing, but then I tried to “save as” an un-edited pdf, and the app crashed again. Please, please, anyway I could get this resolved? I would love to continue using PDFelement 6, so I can eventually upgrade to the premium version. Thanks in advance!

Dear customer, thank you for reaching out. Our technical colleague has tested but did not find any crashes. So we guess it might be caused by your files. Could you please kindly send us your files to us at If possible, it would be considerate to record a short video to show us your steps and how it crashes. This would be really helpful for us to locate the problem and fix it as soon as possible. Thank you so much! :)

Not worth the download

I rarely write reviews, but I was excited to use this as my Adobe XI replacement. What a disappointment. You can’t convert a Word, or PowerPoint document to a PDF. I will stick with PDF Expert as it works better than this and the UI and UX are superior. BTW - ignor the “FREE” price. If you ACTUALLY want to use it and convert anything you have to pay the $100 IAP!

I am sorry to inform you that this product Wondershare PDFelement 6 Professional for Mac does not support to convert word or excel file to PDF file. Currently, it only supports the following three kinds of files to be created to PDF files:
---web files (html,htm,webarchive) 
---picture files(gif,tiff,jpg,jpeg,bmp,png) 
---text files (txt,rtf,rtfd)  
There is another product called PDF Creator for Mac that can help you create PDF from Word, Excel or PPT. You can download the trial version from this link:
