PDFelement VS Pages app VS Online Conversion Tool

Well, PDFelement is undoubtedly the best tool to convert pages to PDF. It comes with a plethora of other tools that enable you to convert your files from 300+ other formats to PDF and vice versa. Along with that, you can edit the file before making a copy of it. Once you have downloaded and installed PDFelement, you can use it offline and you won't be dependent on the internet.

If we talk about the online tool CloudConvert, it can only be used if you have internet. If you are unable to access the internet and need to convert from pages to PDF, you won't be able to use this tool. Also, there are very few options in this online method because you can convert the files into some specific formats but can't edit anything in your files.

When it comes to the Pages app, this built-in app works well. But just like the online tool, there are very fewer options and features in this method. No editing or other advanced tools are available in the Pages app. But one thing, you can directly send your converted files through email and messages.

In our opinion, PDFelement is the best tool to convert pages to PDF on Mac. The Pages app will be our second priority and the online method will be our third priority.
