Aspects Users Found Need To Be Improved

1. Size Issues

The issue relating to filing sizes matters, as large and heavy files would always slow opening speed, affect reading and editing operations, or cause troubles when sharing files with others. 

"Adding minor text notes to a file also significantly increases the file size. This is sporadic, so I don't know the cause."  

—— Javier P, Accountant


 "If you add a note to a PDF it often exponentially increases the file size. For example, opening a 1 MB PDF and adding a note like "PAID 2021-01-20" will increase the PDF size to about 1.8 MB. That is a total waste of computer storage."  

—— Rahul T, CAD Engineer


"When sending emails. With larger size files when sending them using Microsoft Edge the files seem to crash."  

—— Mukul S, Business Planner


After receiving this feedback from customers, PDF Reader Pro has improved its performance regarding this kind of issue. Now, with the upgrade viewing and rendering engine, better annotation tools and compress function, users can rest assured to work with files of different sizes.


2. Scanning and Printing Issues

PDF files can be created by scanning. That’s when users need the scanning tool in a PDF application. After finishing the operations on digital files, we may then need to get the paper version of them. That’s why printing is also a matter of concern for many users.

"You need an add-on to print documents. For me, this doesn't make sense when the program's purpose is to handle pdf files."  

—— Thomas W, Pharmacy Manager


"The scanning feature is not the best. Hopefully, future upgrades will improve that."  

—— User in Telecommunications


"The scanning is very inconsistent with the clarity. The pictures in the light come out really good but the scanning with flash on is not at its best. there are great apps for that."  

—— Subhashree T, Senior Finance Analyst


"Sometimes I experience difficulty in printing and saving documents and it takes a few tries. However, it usually fixes itself."  

—— Yogesh C, Senior Developer


Printing and scanning problems may occur sometimes. As the result of different devices, OS versions and files, the solutions to these problems may not be consistent and need to take into account individual situations. Whereas, we are trying our best to work on these problems and have made improvements with every published updated version. 


3. Desired Functions

It is impossible that an application can meet the needs of every user. What developers can do is keep listening to the opinions of users, and then make progress step by step. Users of PDF Reader Pro have made much useful feedback to us as below:

"You can't delete multiple pages in a PDF by identifying a range. You must delete pages individually."  

—— Ashton S, Project Manager


"You can't rotate all the pages in a PDF at one time by clicking on them all and using the rotate button. You need to rotate them individually."  

—— User in Automotive


"I use this to merge files, which works well, once I figured out how. But, and this is annoying, I haven’t been able to specify the order of the files to be merged. No matter what I try I can't change the order of files."  

—— Hao Z, Account Manager


"I didn't find a cloud service included which is one of the important features it should include."

—— User in Construction


We treasure the user feedback because they are the motivation for us to keep on making improvements and bring users a better experience. We would always take advice from users and consider if it can be realized shortly. Thus, most desired functions mentioned above like deleting multiple pages, rotating all pages at the same time, specifying order when merging files, are already available in the new versions of PDF Reader Pro. 



In a word, customer reviews and feedback have always been the core motivation for PDF Reader Pro to keep on getting better. We sincerely hope that through our product, you can feel at ease when dealing with files and live a productive life.
