Today I have a guest post written by Anna Stanley from PDFConverter.com. Since she was kind enough to write the article and include useful step by step screenshots of the program, I am publishing it here. To see a clearer picture of an image, click on it and it should show you a bit larger version, although you’ll have to remember to click the ‘back’ button to get back to the article.
Please note: I haven’t had time to review it myself yet, so will be doing a follow-up post to let you know whether I found it as easy and useful as it seems to be. And that 2nd paragraph is totally over my head, so you might want to skim over it.
3 Ways to Edit Your PDF with PDF Converter Elite 3
There are many useful and free online tools for reading and editing PDF documents, but if you take a closer look at each of them, you’ll see that they usually come with certain limitations. That’s not very helpful for demanding users who need professional PDF management solutions for their business or academic purposes.
However, there are powerful PDF programs that incorporate all the features a PDF user could ever possibly need, including native, locked and scanned PDF conversion, batch-conversion, editing, password-protecting, securing, watermarking and creating new PDFs.
One such high quality and comprehensive PDF management software is the PDF Converter Elite 3 that incorporates all these features and more.
Editing is among the most useful features of the PCE 3 and it allows users to extract, remove, rotate, resize, insert, delete and crop pages in a PDF document, as well as merge files, attach new documents, add any chosen image as underlay or overlay watermark, etc.
Document editing in PCE3 is easy and appropriate for users of any computer skill level, because of the software’s intuitive and user-friendly design.
In order to start editing a PDF, you need to start the software and first open a PDF document you want to edit.
After you’ve opened your document, click on the Edit tab in the menu bar.
On the right side of the screen you’ll see a dynamic sidebar that will contain your editing options. You can choose to edit the file or edit pages in the document. Let’s give you a few practical examples of how to use PCE3 editing options to increase your productivity.
Merge multiple PDFs
Merging PDF files is a common practice for people who want to create one document from different archived PDF material. In order to do that, first you need to open all the PDF documents you want to work with using the Open button we described above, and then select the “Merge PDF” tab in the dynamic sidebar:
If you change your mind about some file, you can always remove it using the “Remove” button. In the “Save Merged file as” slot you’ll name your new PDF document, and click OK in order to start the merging process.
Insert new pages
Inserting new pages is one of the most common editing practices among PCE 3 users. It allows users to quickly add new material to a PDF document they already have, without the hassle of creating new documents from scratch. Click on the “Insert Pages” button in the dynamic sidebar. In the “Insert Pages to PDF” box choose where you want to insert pages and what type of page you want to add. Then click OK.
Resizing PDFs is an especially useful feature for users who have particular requirements about the size of their document. Go to the “Resize pages” option in the dynamic sidebar and when the “Resize Pages” box appears, choose your page’s size, scaling options and range of pages to resize. Then click OK.
These are only the most frequent edition choices of PDF Converter users, but there are numerous more possibilities to improve your PDF document using the PCE 3 software.

It looks like a great program, although it is a little expensive. I’m looking forward to trying it out, especially the convert to Powerpoint feature. As I mentioned, I’ll be posting an update with my results. If any of you have tried PDF Converter, please comment and let us all know how you liked it.
P.S. I have a new webinar series coming up at my carolbremner.com site. Stay tuned for more information.
