Premium PDF editors for Mac in 2016

PDF editing can be quite tricky, especially when you don't have a right tool at your disposal. Most of the free applications of this kind don't offer a complete set of functions, so when you use them, there's a good chance that you'll have to stop what you're doing and start searching for an additional tool to help you out, which can be quite annoying. This is why, I've decided to present you a short list of the most feature-rich PDF editors for Mac.

Wondershare PDFelement ($99.95)

Let's start things off with one of the best all-in-one solutions that you can currently find: Wondershare PDFelement.  This tool can perform numerous PDF-related functions, allowing you to edit your documents, create new ones, convert them into other formats and splitting or merging your files. What's really cool is that the application provides a very neat interface and it lets you seamlessly work with multiple PDF documents at the same time and easily navigate your way through all the pages and functions.

As far as the editing goes, you can do almost everything you want: delete or move elements, change and resize the font, resize images or other elements, rearrange and insert pages, rotate elements and pages, etc. The OCR capabilities that the tool provides are also a big plus. Lastly, if speaking about the price, Wondershare PDFelement is actually quite convenient as there are a lot of PDF editors that charge you more while offering less.

PDFpenPro ($124.95)


PDFpenPro is another great PDF editor, but it's a little bit more expensive. What's really great about this application is that it enables you to convert websites into PDF documents, which is a very handy function, especially nowadays, when everything is on the Internet. The tool offers standard editing functions such as the ability to annotate your pages in various ways, change the text and modify the elements. Additionally, PDFpenPro embeds OCR capabilities and some useful tutorial videos.

iSkysoft PDF Editor ($49.95)

Since some of you may prefer a cheaper solution, I had to include iSkysoft PDF Editor. The Pro version of this tool doesn't offer as many functions as the previous two applications, but it will still allow you to create PDF files, merge or split them and convert your documents into e-books, webpages, PPT presentations, and Word or Excel files. This editor allows you to work with scanned pages (OCR) and it's able to move, link or split blocks of any text, practically functioning like a regular text editor.
