Final Thoughts

We are thoroughly impressed with how powerful and efficient PDF Link Editor is from our intensive testing. Upon adding a PDF to the PDF Link Editor, the scanning takes mere seconds and all relevant hyperlinks appear allowing us to get to work pronto. No clunky maneuvers required! We were easily able to amend our PDF hyperlinks quickly and in one click just like the company advertises. We particularly liked the PDF Viewer feature since we could verify if we were configuring the relevant links accurately. Furthermore, we didn’t run into any troubleshooting or long term issues which is something we highly appreciate.  We strongly recommend this tool for any level of computer user and so why not test it out for yourself!
