I purchased PDF Architect Pro + OCR (version 4) on 31 Dec 2016 hoping that it would work faster than NitroPDF or FoxIt and use it as a cheaper alternative to Adobe Acrobat DC (which I use @ work).
The performance of PDF Architect Pro + OCR is rather lacking in cheers and kudos, i.e., it is damned slow and either freezes or crashes at times. This is regardless of the PDF file I am opening. ?!?
Anyone else experience this?
Adobe Acrobat Reader / Adobe Acrobat Pro DC opens PDF files in an instant. In an instant, I don’t even have to count the seconds and the file is ready to be accessed or edited. Editing is not a hassle as well, easy peasy!
My recent (I’d say recent because I rarely need to edit PDFs). PDF Architect is a pain in opening a PDF, it does not take seconds… I actually have to distract myself with another activity for a minute or two for a single page PDF to be opened in the PDF Architect GUI. What is this??
Seems like it is thinking… WAY TO MUCH???
When I go into “EDIT MODE”, for example, I want to rotate some pages on the PDF, it takes 10 years (in my count) to get to that function’s UI space, then I have to be careful to do it slowly, before PDF Architect crashes.
There were times when PDF Architect would just crash… when editing. I think I was trying to HIGHLIGHT in colour certain text. It was an 8 page PDF (an invoice). After the 5th highlight, the application would freeze to death and I will have to kill the task in Windows Explorer.
This is rather quite disappointing. And then… it seems like PDF Forge (PDF Architect) wants me to upgrade to V. 5??? What?
Why would I pay extra $ to upgrade when the current version does not even work.
This is really bad.

Please, someone get back to me before I explode. I hate seeing your Desktop Notification all the time, it’s time to UPGRADE//// BUT WHY???
