A PDF is a versatile and powerful file type that allows users to present images and text in a format-fixed layout that will look consistent across a variety of devices. The downside to PDFs is generally that they are hard to edit after the fact and require special programs. Thankfully users who work extensively with PDFs and need a versatile solution for editing no longer have to look more because PDFescape for Windows is the perfect program for all PDF needs.

PDFescape allows users to view and edit PDFs from a variety of different variables and methods. Users are able to take existing PDFs and edit both images and text, changing aspects such as the font used, font size, color appearances, and adding additional markings and notations such as highlights of text, annotations, and bookmarks, notes, etc. PDFescape also has the unique ability to fill out PDF forms for you quickly. Instead of downloading PDFs from websites online for things such as doctor visits, users can now fill out the PDF forms directly on their computers and print out the finished copy with everything filled in, which is a great way to save time and be more efficient. 

PDFescape isn't only for editing existing PDFs, however. This program also supports the creation of new PDFs by the user, boasting an impressive number of input methods to get the job done. Users can create blank PDFs from scratch, create PDFs from existing images, scanned images, or any other supported printable files. This program also supports the ability to easily and quickly convert across different file formats such as HTML to PDF and vice versa. For advanced users who are concerned about protecting their data, this program allows you to easily set passwords for protection that are 256 bit encrypted, which is the same strength that banks users for their security passwords too. All in all, if you do work with PDFs regularly and require advanced functionality to make your life easier, look no further than PDFescape for Windows.

PDFescape for Windows allows users to edit PDFs for free, marking it out against other competitor software in the same market. It can create PDFs from hundreds of file types, increasing utility and making it very useful in a number of tasks. However, the software does contain adverts, which might be annoying when trying to utilise. A premium, ad-free version is available, though is only available on subscription as opposed to an outright payment/buy.
