The PDF file format is one of the most useful and versatile file formats currently in use today. Not only can it display a large selection of content like text and images, but it can also prevent any changes to be made to the contents of the file, making them difficult to modify and easy to share or transfer. Of course, this means that only a dedicated PDF editor can make changes to it. PDFEscape is a PDF editor created by Red Software. It has a wide range of uses such as editing, protecting, creating, and more.
It’s not uncommon for users to have several devices to work on. Fortunately, PDFEscape has two main versions. First, you have the browser-based version that can be used through several browsers including Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Edge, and Internet Explorer. Users should take note of the supported browser versions, however. PDFEscape only works with Firefox 3, Internet Explorer, Opera 9.5, Safari 3, or later versions.
It also has a Windows version that can be downloaded and installed. The browser version has a file size limit of up to 10 MB and 100 pages while the desktop version does not have this limitation.
PDFEscape is a multi-purpose tool for handling PDF files. It can be used as a basic PDF viewer, but it has other features as well. It has many editing tools that can be used to add new content and other and media on existing PDF files. On the other hand, it can also be used to create new PDF files from scratch. PDFEscape also has various annotation tools to add notes and comments. PDFEscape can also password-protect files for added security.
The browser version of PDFEscape is available for free. However, as mentioned above, there are certain limitations to consider when using it. The desktop version of the software, on the other hand, has three modes: Free, Premium, or Ultimate.
The Free Plan lets users edit PDFs, create and fill forms, and share PDF documents. Premium and Ultimate are paid services that have a subscription-based payment model that can be billed either monthly or annually. The Premium mode is available for 2.99 USD per month and has Power PDF editing features and can print to or scan to PDF. The Ultimate mode can publish PDF forms and is available for 5.99 USD per month.
Basic, But Functional
PDFEscape is a useful PDF editor, but it may not be worth it to invest financially on a basic editor as there are several free options that can compete with its features. If you want to give it a try, it has a free trial available. From there, you can decide whether or not it is worth the money to upgrade to the paid versions.
