Licence key deactivated suddenly yesterday - watermark now. Won't accept the key again - says 'invalid'.

bookman, same here, went to test mine today as they're giving away another product, edited some text and tried to save and it reports:

"The Key is expired! Click "Help->Buy Now" menu item to register again!"

That is not going to happen! I wish vendors that use this site would read the sites About page and take it seriously!

Text editing is a pain: once you've pushed the striketext button, you hardly add some non-struck text after the struck text as at first any attempt to push back that button is unsuccessful (even trying to push some alternative option); then, it works suddenly, but after you spent ages in waiting and hoping. The same when you want to edit a text box from scratch. I went back to Foxit from a previous GAOTD and did what I wanted in short time. Thank you to the firm to offer their product, but it is far from being ready to market.

I have been very impressed with AceThinker's support after I bought a license. Jim has been very professional and very helpful.

The software has a few rough edges, but this looks to be one amazing piece of software. This app is a keeper. Well worth the purchase.

After double clicking setup file, it took me to their site stating Acethinker PDF Writer 1.0 activated — what next?
I tried several times to install the program but no luck.
Where is the program?
What NEXT?
This one is useless because no program will be installed.

Hi Kaz,

If you're not able to find out the setup file on Giveaway of the Day, you may also get it from below. However, we still recommend you to try again on GOTD before using it.

http://acethinker.com/program/pdf-writer.exe

Once done, you can follow the instructions to get the keycode on this page: http://acethinker.com/giveaway.html and activate your tool. And please send a message to support@acethinker.com if anything not sure. Thanks a lot.

Hi Kaz,

Sorry for the problem. Would you try to install from GOTD page again? If it still does not work, please get the setup file from below:

http://acethinker.com/pdf-writer/

When you have done with installation, please forward to the page below to get your keycode. You just need to copy it into the registration field of the software (forward to "Help" - "Install Key") and unlock it.

http://acethinker.com/giveaway.html

Note that if you copy this serial key into txt, Word or other files, it will generate line breaks and therefore cannot register successfully. You need to paste the key into registration field directly. If you have any other questions, please let me know, thanks.

My production machine is NOT connected to the internet (simplest Virus Protection). You can't register this application on a non-connected PC...

Other Software houses provide for off-line activation: Steinberg, Native Instruments, Adobe come to mind.

In it's current form the registration proccess is a fail for me. Deleted.

Installed and registered OK on two Windows 10 computers after I suspended the anti-virus program which was blocking installation. I opened a couple of pdf files on both computers and tried to edit them but couldn't make any changes to text or graphics. I tried to open two more pdf files on both computers but got the runtime error message which caused the program to terminate. Perhaps these problems could be easily resolved via customer support but I haven't got the time. Uninstalled.

Just tried PDF Writer for about 5 minutes and it seems pretty straightforward. However, there are definitely some quirks with basic operations.

First, at least under Win7, the Open With context menu item for a PDF document only calls the program but doesn't load the document selected. (I haven't gone into the registry to see whether it just needs to have the path to the document in quotes, but that's the first place I'd check. This should be set up by the installer.)

Next, although there's a one-time confirmation dialog, entering the key code doesn't dim the Install Key menu item or show its registered status in the About dialog as a confirmation that the program's registered properly. The software also assumes you're online when you enter the key but doesn't ask you to be.

I also found it highly unusual that the title bar doesn't display the program's title (or any info whatsoever beyond the default system items put there by Windows: close/minimize/maximize on the right and program icon/system menu on the left). Hovering over the taskbar button displays the document name and then VivPDF (instead of PDF Writer).

As a test, I used the freeware PDFCreator to print the program's manual from the web page to PDF at 90% scaling (in order to leave out the right column of the page which is specific to web navigation). When I went back to edit the PDF, I could delete some extra text I didn't want, but I couldn't (permanently) delete the vertical bar along the right side. Oh, the program let me delete it visually, but after saving, quitting Writer and loading the PDF into Adobe Reader, the bar is still there on every page after two such attempts.

It's relatively easy to use and intuitive in its layout. (I say "relatively" easy because there's no toolbar button to trigger edit mode for the loaded document, and under the Edit menu, "Edit Text and Images" has no hotkey.)

I later discovered the more powerful button Edit Tool (should be plural) on the far right, away from the toolbar buttons, which opens a pane with various items, some duplicating ones in the menus/toolbar and others, labeled Protection, which don't seem to be exposed anywhere else.

As someone else said, the software will need ongoing work to be a "finished product." However, as a version 1 product, the app shows promise. It seem to work well on my machine, and with a little refinement and polishing of the UI I think PDF Writer will be a powerful tool.

GOTD fans also take notice when a developer actually bothers to participate here by responding to messages instead of just dumping software on us and disappearing, so that speaks well of the company... all the more so because they're actively working on fixing issues that people here run into. Best wishes to Acethinker for their efforts, and thanks to them + GOTD for the use of the software!

Cant insert text into existing document. Wrap around overlays the text on the line below. Useless.

Dear George,

Sorry for the issue, if you're not able to insert texts, would you try to copy/paste some words into the box and edit it again? And if there's overlay problem, you may drag the text box to somewhere else and to avoid it. Would you mind sending your PDF to support@acethinker.com for us to have further check? Thanks for your helps.

This program is built with lot of bugs!!!
It never opens just by clicking on the pdf file, you have to go to the program and open the desired file even after being made this program as default
I prefer pdf-xchange viewer is much better than this which is free version

I wish to thank both teams...the AceThinker PDF Writer and GOTD for this program. I am a rookie compared to most but I had no problem with installing the application (Win 7 Ultimate) and used it already to rotate some pages on a few PDF files. Worked great! Looking forward to using it more and will consider purchase of the complete version. Again Thanks for the program.

Good potential and features I want and will use. But, could not get far after inserting an image. Could not get it sized to fit the page, way too large.
I could insert a pdf file but it wanted the entire file and could not insert a selected page from a file. So, extra steps to delete all the unwanted pages.
Did see the text inserted vertically on one document where3 it should have been horiz on a portrait page and tried again on another and it was correctly oriented. Seemed random.
No free upgrades so the flaws need to be lived with, some of which are unlivable. Such as the image sizing issue. The help was minimal and not helpful to my needs.

This program has a lot of comments, but I was wondering why there is no Undo command (and Redo as well). Ever think about adding those? Any editing operation needs an Undo. The only other recourse is to re-open the same file, but if several other operations were already completed and the user is happy with those modifications, the user doesn't want to lose their completed work. Starting from scratch again is a killer for me to use this program.

Hi Gary,

Thanks a lot for your suggestions. There's a shortcut of "Ctrl" + "z" to undo the step. I'm sorry it's obscure, we will add an undo button to the software soon. And you may send me a request to support@acethinker.com for getting the version update.

A winner, thank you.

Clicked to install
Visited http://acethinker.com/giveaway.html entered name and an email address
Web page defaults to a different view including "use the keycode to unlock it"
Top menu clicked Help | Install Key
Added the code to acethinker
Opened a pdf file

Summary:

The utilitarian interface is reassuring.
Top menu clicked Edit | Add text, chose a font size and color. Font is defaulted to the embedded font already in place
Top menu clicked Edit | Edit Text and Images, adjusted some existing text
Top menu clicked Edit | Add image, selected an image and positioned it on the page
Clicked Save
Re-opened the pdf file and all was in place.

Big thanks and hats off. ★★★★☆

Jumped through all the usual hoops and managed to install & reg without any problems. Tested on several PDF files from very simple to very complex with loads of graphics and it failed on even the simplest of documents. Got a message saying text was rotated ... No it wasn't ... and to use the Touchup tool ... Couldn't find. After that the program spat the dummy out and crashed. Tried a second time but it still didn't want to play. This time it was me that spat the dummy out and uninstalled it. Another wasted morning!

AceThinker,

Thanks for the offer of assistance which is appreciated but I can't send said PDFs as they contain personal information and I already have similar software which gets the job done. I might be wrong, but I suspect the text rotation error might be because of the software used to create the original PDF, could be something embedded in the file that causes this ... Just a thought.

Hi,
Looks good - installed and registered OK.
Only problem is that once I open a file, the menus etc just vanish I can't seem to get them back.
It seems to switch to some kind of full viewing mode - but, then I cannot do anything to it except view the file?
How do I get the menus back?
Thanks.

Hi Harold,

Thanks for contacting us. Regarding your question, please find the tips as below:

1. I think you have probably clicked the read mode icon on top-right of the software's interface. You just need to click on it again and resume to the editor mode.

2. You may also right-click on a blank space of top menu and choose to hide/display the menu bars.

If you have any other questions, please let us know, thanks.

AceThinker,
No, definitely not clicking the read mode icon. I do File->Open, select a file and it immediately changes to read mode / menus vanish. Tried opening several different .pdf files - same results.

However, I can use the right click near the title bar to get the right click menu and then choose Menu to restore it. So, that will do for me.
Thanks!

Darcie Alcott, for some odd reason in IE9 at least the returned code is displayed as white ink on a white background! It is there but you just can't see it, I presume in some browser versions. When you press the "Click to Copy" button the entire key value returned is selected and should become partly visible, only partly because the space allocated to the variable is far too short for the full key length. At that point press CTRL+C to make sure the key is coppied to the clipboard. You can theen follow the rest of the instructions on registering the program. HTH

TK, If the user selects their own colors, some webpages become broken. (This is not a user error, we have the right to make a browser comfortable for ourselves) -- I won't know for sure unless I try, but going to the page, it doesn't immediately jump out at me with a key code nor does scrolling down reveal anything. Hopefully I won't need to use it.

Complete mess of an install for Win10, x64 Home. Yes, I did manually traipse through all of the comments, went to the hidden web pages to download and watch the video with the secret activation page, and deactivated AVG antivirus, etc. Never got the GOTD setup.exe to work properly at all. I think this software is installed now by manual steps, thanks to vendor's feedback in the comments thread, but this software is not ready for prime time distribution. Thanks for the effort, and good luck with this software.

A really attractively designed interface, easy on the eye, easy-to-use.

Edit tool, Pages, brings up a lot of really useful functions such as, insert from file, insert blank page, extract, replace, split document, crop and rotate.
Page design, has a number of useful functions below it they are, header and footer, background, watermark and Bates numbering, the latter I have no idea what it is.

A very mature version one, really attractive interface and lots of very useful functions, most definitely a keeper.

Download does not work on my win10 64 bit system. I follow all directions, go to the link provided, enter name and email, click to obtain registration code, and the program will not load. There is no desktop icon nor any app that was loaded. My clipboard had the registration code but no program to run.
Too bad, I could use this program.

Test with a pdf created with LibreOffice (LO). Very simple, with a few tables, no image. On one word, AbleWord (*) chocked and created an image of it; couldn't manage to do the correction. Funnily, this GOTD chocked on the very same word (and maybe more). FYI, LO has no problem editing the pdf (the contrary would be quite surprising).

Tried to edit the word. A window pops up saying: "The text is rotated, please use Tochup to edit it". No, the text isn't rotated. What is this "Tochup", and where is it located? No clue. (And yes, I read the documentation, which, as it's become a bad habit, is available only on the Internet ---a shame for a $40 software.)

Anyway. Deleted the image, try to remove empty space... software crashes. Thanks. This can be repeated at will. I mean, after 2 crashes, I think it's not worth trying again.

Downloaded and installed on Windows 10 without problem. Thank you

Suggestion Provide "How to Use PDF Writer" as a downloadable PDF file, rather than only giving info on the webpage.

I wanted to know how to attach a cover (separate graphic image) to the front of the PDF file. Your guide doesn't tell me. Can it be done with this program?

Hi Faith,

Thanks for your interest in our software. There're two ways to add a cover to your PDF file while we will amend the user guide soon.

1. Load your PDF into the software, forward to "Edit Tool" (top-right) - "Pages" - "Insert Blank Page". And then you could fill the empty page with texts and images by accessing "Add Text"/"Add Image" options in "Content Editing" menu. In this way, you could create a cover page with ease.

2. If you already have a cover in PDF, just combine it into your existing document by navigating to "Edit Tool" - "Pages" - "Insert from File".

Hope it helps. If you have any other questions, please forward them to support@acethinker.com. Thanks.

Regards

Installed and registered OK on Win10 64-bit. Tried it out on a complex pdf of a type I have to extract info from regularly using Acrobat X Pro full/Foxit Reader and that you would expect many such programs to fail. There is some vertical text and plent of fancy setting out.
Edit=>Edit text and images=
And it did. This message comes up at every left click. "This text is rotated, please use the Tochup [sic] Tool to edit it."
As far as I could see, the program does not have a Touchup Tool.
It allowed me to delete a few graphics, then crashed (twice).
"Select all" (graphics) just selected all the graphics on one page, not the whole document.
I then tried it at altering and adding text to some slightly simpler pdfs I create myself. It did better at this than Acrobat XPro. and I will try it out properly on this task the next time I have to do it.
Still plenty for the authors to improve in later versions.
Nevertheless - thanks AceThinking for putting it up on Giveaway of the Day.

My ByteFence detected "Adware.Softdeluxe-giveaway.Installer" when I ran Setup.exe.
I have recently removed the adware from my computer. Can this adware be removed after install without harming the program?

Hi Norbi,

If you're not able to find out the setup file, you may also get it from below. However, we still recommend you to try again on GOTD before using it.

http://acethinker.com/program/pdf-writer.exe

Once done, you can follow the instructions to get the keycode and activate your tool. And please send a message to support@acethinker.com if anything not sure. Thanks a lot.

Norbi, Try suspending your antivirus software for a few minutes during installation

Download easy as is registration. Clean simple interface, no clutter.
Posting user guides is an excellent idea and they are easy to understand.

Interesting software, does some common things, BUT, it allows you to edit text and images in a pdf, this is usually seen only in costly programs, and often not even then.
I would suggest that when text edits are done, the edited text should be seen in the edited doc.
This program allows easy replacement of OCR'd misspellings.
Program also allows insertion of images into a pdf, also very useful.
All in all, a keeper in my pdf manipulation tool box.

Wow, a program you can use if you are hanging on to XP.

They left out one little step in the registration process, which should be obvious to most of you, but---:

To paste the code you got from their web site, click "Help" in the program menu, select "Install Key", paste the key code you copied from their web page (following their directions, of course), click "OK" and you are done.

It installed fine for me, Win 10 etc, etc, etc.

It's an easy install if you follow the directions they give, but as usual if you decide you don't need to follow no stinking directions, you will likely have problems, with subsequent whining and complaining.
