PROS / This convert PDF software has some unique editing features to enhance your presentation.
CONS / Nitro Pro doesn't offer a way to embed audio and video files.
VERDICT / Designed for businesses of all sizes, Nitro Pro offers multiple features in an easy-to-use interface.
Nitro Pro convert PDF software is designed with businesses of all sizes in mind, with a focus on tools needed for creating and distributing PDF presentations. Plus, it has some nice extras for PDF creation. This application is one of the most user-friendly applications we reviewed, especially when you consider all the PDF editing features it contains.
We were impressed by the layout of features in this PDF converter. The toolbars are patterned after the latest version of Microsoft Office to be familiar to most businesspeople and allow you to easily edit your PDF. In fact, the software fully integrates with Office, so you can convert files to PDF from those programs. You can convert multiple documents at once, and they all show up as tabs on the same software, making it easy to move between them.
This software has all the features found in the best PDF conversion programs, plus a couple of extras. Nitro Pro comes in 12 languages – and includes spellcheck for those languages. You can use the QuickSign tool to add your own signature to any document; additionally, if you don't have a signature on file, you can scrawl one by hand, take a picture of it on your computer or smartphone, and upload it to the program. You can change the size and position of your signature as you would an image file, but the signature doesn't cover underlying lines or text.
Nitro Pro lacks the capability to embed audio and video files into your documents. Competing conversion software can include these file types in PDFs. However, you can attach external files to documents with Nitro Pro and add images. One nice feature with images is that this PDF software lets you select and edit a portion of an image, so that if you want to split a graph or expand a part of an image, you can do so with a few clicks from within the software.
When you're ready to share, you can upload your documents to a network folder or a management system, such as Microsoft SharePoint. There are multiple tools to allow people to comment on, edit and otherwise mark up the file, and you can compare those files to yours to seek out areas that need changes.
Securing the document for distribution is also easy. You can set permissions and add passwords. You can also make redactions and remove sensitive data either by searching for the words to redact or highlighting and redacting entire sections. Further, you can assign redactions to specific versions so that people with the correct password can see the complete document.
Nitro Pro can convert PDFs to Word and other Office documents, image and text files, and more, but it does not convert to EPUB. It does optimize for the web, for reading on smartphones and for archiving.
The user guide is standard but searchable. However, the Help ribbon impressed us. You have access to the guide and knowledgebase, and you can get a product tour, contact online support and check for updates. Nitro Pro has tutorials and white papers on other aspects of PDFs and business. It offers dedicated assistance for an additional fee.
Nitro Pro is a top-notch convert PDF software that's very easy to use. While it lacks multimedia embedding capability, it has all the features we looked for in business PDF creation, plus a few convenient extras. It's especially worth checking out if you do a lot of collaboration on PDFs or work with multiple languages.
