What Are the Limitations of the Trial Version of PDFelement for Mac?

The unregistered version of PDFelement and registered version are functionally the same product, except the unregistered version has the following limitations (applicable to both Windows and Mac versions) :

  • 1The unregistered version will add a watermark to the PDF file when you edit and save the PDF file in the unregistered version.
  • 2When converting the PDF file to other formats, such as Word, Excel, etc., it will leave a watermark on the converted file and the unregistered version will only convert 5 pages of the original PDF file. If the original PDF file is less than 5 pages, it will only convert half of the pages in the PDF file.
  • 3OCR function is not available for the trial version.

Note: After you have purchased the software and register it successfully, reload the PDF file and the software will remove the watermark automatically. Now just click on File>Save button to re-save the file without the watermark.

If the watermark is on your converted word or excel file, reload it into the registered version and convert, watermark will be removed.
