PDFelement 6 Professional is really a great PDF editing tool, which will not cost you a fortune. PDFelement 6 Pro is priced at $59.95 per year, which is quite reasonable and the price is really justified for the features it offers. If you are planning to purchase a new PDF suite or is looking for an alternative for your existing PDF suite, PDFelement 6 Professional is not going to disappoint you for sure. The only thing I dislike about the pricing is the subscription method. I wish there was an option for a one-time purchase.

Working on the internet, we all come across PDF files once in a while, and thus, our smartphone, PCs, tablets and other devices have a decent PDF reader as per our requirements and likeness. But sometimes, we also need to create or modify PDF files, and our free PDF readers are, in most cases do not have the capabilities to do that. That is when we need to pay for the premium suites that come with additional abilities like OCR support, support to convert PDF into other formats, merge PDF files and many others you can think of. Till a few years ago, Adobe PDF used to be the leader in the world premium PDF programs.
But in 2018 there are a plethora of free and premium PDF tools, and recently I got my hands on the latest Wondershare PDFelement 6 Professional.

PDFelement 6 Professional ideally consume around 130 MB of RAM and takes around 1.3 GB of hard drive space, which is quite natural for a program offering such a huge set of features.

So that was all about the pros. Yes, I know it is impressive, and offer all the functionalities you might need while working with PDF documents in 2018.
Just like the moon has scars, PDFelement 6 Professional is also not an exception. So let’s find out the cons of PDFelement 6 Professional.
- PDFelement 6 Professional is great. But sometimes the program freezes while processing and capturing text from big documents. I understand such tasks are resource heavy and put a considerable load on the CPU, but I wish the management was a little better to prevent any freezing issues.
- The user interface of PDFelement 6 Professional is quite user-friendly, and I won’t complain. But the program has issues with the toolbar and sometimes cause user interface issues when the window is maximized. The window is different from normal Windows programs with the default framework, which is likely the reason behind causing the issue.
- The OCR plugin doesn’t get installed at the time of installing PDFelement 6 Professional. This again consumes a lot of data, and if you on a limited data plan, it can be a little troublesome for you. I wish the OCR plugin got installed at the time of installing the program.
I didn’t find any more cons. I just wish the bugs that cause the program to crash, gets fixed soon. That is only a major con that I noticed and need to be addressed as early as possible.
Now it is the time for my final verdict about the software. PDFelement 6 Professional is really a great PDF editing tool, which will not cost you a fortune. PDFelement 6 Professional is priced at $59.95 per year, which is quite reasonable and the price is really justified for the features it offers. If you are planning to purchase a new PDF suite or is looking for an alternative for your existing PDF suite, PDFelement 6 Professional is not going to disappoint you for sure. The only thing I dislike about the pricing is the subscription method. I wish there was an option for a one-time purchase. Though such a pricing method is not available for the leading PDF suites as the subscription method is a better business strategy. But being a customer, I can always hope something better. So to wrap up things, I will surely recommend PDFelement 6 Professional if you are looking for a decent PDF suite at a reasonable price.
