It will compress your PDF file. It will optimize images and other elements in the PDF file to reduce file size without losing quality. Open PDF document. Go File -> Optimize. You will see some options. Select any one option according to your need. Even its optimization process is very quick. It optimized a 2.50 MB PDF file in no time. I did not find any quality change. Of course, the compression level depends on the number of images you have on a PDF file. If you have only text, you may not see much reduction in file size.


You can protect your PDF file with a password. So that no one will open your PDF file without a password. Of course, anyone can remove a password from a PDF by using some premium PDF password remover softwares like Wondershare PDF password remover for Windows or Wondershare PDF password remover for Mac. Unless they use premium software, no one will open your document without a password.

You can also add your signature and you can ask for a signature on a PDF document.


OCR functionality will translate your scanned PDF file into an editable PDF file. You can edit text and other elements like you do to a word document. It works very well.

Like this you have a number of features like Combining multiple files into one PDF, splitting PDF file into multiple pages. You can also create fillable PDF forms.
